Jacket: F21, Jeggings: Wal-Mart, Shoes: Steve Madden, Scarf: Gift, Bag: Coach, Jewelry: F21, c/o Mimi's, Movado, Shirt {I promise it's under there...but it was cold and I wasn't staying outside long enough to lose the jacket!}: c/o Karen Kane


Anyone else? Dusty bought a meganormous bag of individually-wrapped candy corn packets and has been sending them to school with me. So naturally, I've been giving an inordinate amount of thought to candy corn lately. That and it's really starting to feel like fall now. So anyway, I'm pretty sure those little morsels of sugary goodness are sufficiently better when allowed to.....mature for a bit out in open air to lose some of their softness. I like when they have a little bite to them. Plus I eat candy corn{s?} in sections. White. Orange. Yellow. That is totally normal, right? And it's easier to section them out once they've gotten some crustiness to the outside. Also nice? Chilled candy corn. It has generally the same effect. So, lessons learned: If you have time, space, and the ability to "air out" or chill your candy corn without having it stolen or eaten out from under you, do give it a try. I recommend at least a day of airage. You can come back to share your reviews later.

How will you be spending your fabulously fallish weekend?

Love,

Ramsey

Haha! LOVED this! I eat my candy corn the exact same way... including the white, yellow, and orange sections :)

hahaha! So funny. If I eat candy corn it's in sections. But I don't love candy corn, so it's rare when I eat it. LOVE this outfit it's so perfectly fall!!

I'm amazed that your coat is forever 21! It's gorgeous, not that I don't like forever 21 I really do, it's just your coat looks very nice, (expensive). Love it!

Love the orange pea coat! And of course enjoying this beautiful Fall day with a plate of brownies and FSU Football!

Kate said...

You are so cute! I LOVE the burnt orange color paired with the leopard! Such a fantastic combination!

Katya said...

I have been eye-ing that jacket at F21 for ages now, and was never sure I could pull it off. YOU on the other hand, are rocking it. The color looks amazing on you :)

&& I'll have to disagree, I like my candy corn soft, because my teeth are sensitive like a grandmas and chewing stale candy is out of the question (though I do believe it would still taste delicious!).

I eat my candy corn in sections too! Haha love it.

Darcie said...

Totally normal to eat candy corn that way...I do too!

Cassandra said...

Orange AND leopard print?! I love it! I just bought an orange sweater and a leopard cardigan and now I am inspired to try them together. :) Also, could your hair be any more flawless? I'm jealous! I feel like it's taking forever for my hair to grow out, haha.

Loving that jacket! I'm not a fan of candy corn but if I was I would totally do the chilled way!
