25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress

1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

KCL Friday Finds

Happy Friday!🙂 I've got a very special KCL Friday Finds for you guys today. September is right around the corner, and though it won't technically be Fall yet, who cares?!! We can get our pumpkin-spice loving ways on regardless. Cheers to all my fellow basic-fall peeps.🍁🍂

First up, let's peek at some Fall Fashion Inspo. The first is via Blair Eadie of Atlantic-Pacific. I've been following her blog for a long time, and her photos and outfits are always so amazing. This ruffled Marisa Webb skirt might be a bit much for my everyday life, but it goes to show how perfect olive green looks with black and white stripes.

It's definitely not the first time I've seen this combo for Fall 2017, so I'm guessing it'll be a big trend this season. If the skirt is a bit much for you as well, try a black and white striped top with an olive pencil skirt or trousers, and of course some chic black pumps. For a casual version, go with some olive skinnies and tall black boots!

Another fall fashion pick that caught my eye this week is by Auggie Lamb. This Coffee Before Talkie tank is so cute. I tend to gravitate towards tank tops during fall just as much as during summer, because they're perfect for layering. I love how this one looks with that shirt layered over it. A black moto jacket or olive utility jacket would look perfect with it as well.

If you need a little Fall Food Inspo, I've got plenty of cozy recipes here on the blog. One of my all-time favorites is this beautiful caramel apple pie with a fall-leaf crust. Though the number one viewed fall recipe on Krisztna Clifton Living is this post on Easy Pumpkin-Spice Pancakes.

The Home Inspo is jam-packed this week, because that is one of the best parts about fall - the pumpkins, the cozy mugs, the furry throws, and the yummy scented candles! 🍂

I don't tend to use candles all year long, but during the fall and the holidays, it's a must. This super cute Fallin' Leaves candle is by Suzee's Candles. You guys, this 16oz candle (the one on the left)  burns for 90+ hours! And yes, we are totally gearing up for Fall, but if you want to stock up on a few other scents, this shop is currently offering 30% off all summer scents, like this pretty Lemon Verbena.

And while of course pumpkin spice is always one of the top scents for Autumn, I love a good apple-scented candle this time of year. This Cider Mill Candle by Oak and Amber Candle Co. is made with soy, is 9oz. and burns for 65+ hours. Their holiday collections are perfect for a hostess gift. If you are thinking about getting some new fall candles there, get free shipping before 8/31 with the coupon code: HOLIDAYPREORDER

Anyone who knows me knows that this mug by Jonley Gifts is pretty much perfect for my Fall mug. I do have a bit of a potty mouth, and I like to be silly. This design comes in a standard mug, a latte mug, as well as the travel mug pictured here. Jonely Gifts has so many cute and funny designs, like this "For fox sake is it fall yet" mug. And if you want to create something with a custom design, check out their Design Lab!

For the ultimate pumpkin spice mug this year, might I suggest the Pumpkin Spice Power Couple! How cute is this mug?🙂 You can purchase it at Mugsby, along with so many other holiday and gift items. The pumpkin spice mug comes as pictured above or as a mug set. Come next month, I'll be very excited for their Halloween mugs! You can see all of their autumn and Halloween mugs here >.

Anyway, I love those leather earrings and scarves are one of my favorite essentials for fall as well. Thanks for sharing, gorgeous, and I hope you're having a great holiday weekend so far!
