Sister Style: BW Forever

Emma Chapman of A Beautiful Mess Emma Chapman of A Beautiful Mess Glitter shoes Glitter shoes Black and white portraits Glitter shoes Transitioning to cold weather means the end of sandal season for me—the tragedy! I know some people hate wearing any kind of open toe shoes, but I LOVE it. I feel like I never know what kind of boots or other shoes to wear otherwise. So, I figured why not shoes completely covered in glitter—ha!

Other than shoe dilemmas, I’m currently struggling with if I should decorate my house for Halloween or not. Mostly it would just be for me and Trey, as likely only a handful of others will even see the inside of our house next month (do I need more friends? maybe). So on the one hand, I’m thinking I’ll just do a few things and it won’t feel silly to “overdo it,” but on the other hand… why not go a little crazy/silly? It’s sort of the most hilarious holiday, after all.

What about you, Sister? Are you getting the itch to decorate for Halloween yet?

Elsie LarsonElsie Larson Elsie Larson Elsie Larson Elsie Larson Yes, yes, yes!!! I just ordered a skeleton outfit the other night, but I haven’t gotten my decorating game together yet. I AT LEAST want to do a pumpkin porch. There’s nothing I love more than a pumpkin porch! Oh—and dog costumes. Yesss.

The thing I’m the most excited about is for the leaves to change (not sorry I’m cliché!). I’m starting to see it, but not in full form yet. I give it a couple weeks!

What are you most excited about for October?? Halloween decor, pet costumes, changing leaves or all of the above? xx -Emma + Elsie

  • How could two sisters be equally so gorgeous!?? Loving your style and fashion picks!

  • I usually get most excited to decorate my area at work. But this year, I changed things up and decided to decorate other people’s work spaces without telling them 🙂 I call it ambush decorating!

  • I’m most excited for the changing of the leaves and after that not much else. I’m also an open toe kind of girl and will miss wearing my sandals. But i’ve got a few cute pairs of boots for now =o)

  • I love Emma’s dress! Perfect transitional piece from Summer to Fall. I’m also really excited to see the changing leaves – in Canada they are in full force and so beautiful! Loving all the Fall hues everywhere.


  • Those glittery boots are amazing! I’m really excited to try and find a costume for my dog. I don’t know if I’ll be successful since he’s a really small dog…

  • I’m glad autumn is here mostly because I can make apple pies every day of the week and no one bats an eye… 😉

  • I love your dresses, and I’m excited how you will decorate for Halloween!

  • Emma- this outfit is everything!! The dress is so flattering, the shoes are so awesome, and the hat is so chic, yet casual. Thanks for the INSPO girls <3

  • Elsie, your spices are beautiful, but I have to recommend this spice rack from Dean & DeLuca. It’s really unique, filled with high quality goods, and an eye-catcher. Completes my kitchen and makes me smile.

  • Love the turquoise wall. I say decorate for Halloween, you only get to do it once a year!!! One last thing – Emma, last week I responded to your comment about the sizing of the new oui fresh items. It would mean a lot to me if you could check out my response. It’s an issue close to my heart.
