Sabrina Outfit Inspiration

In lieu of Halloween I went with Sabrina Spellman for my October outfit inspiration post. Because it is kind of Halloween themed I took much more from The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina since I think it brings way more Halloween vibes. Traditionally Sabrina Spellman is a witch living a normal teenage life and all the adventures the ensure with those worlds colliding. The Chilling Adventures definitely takes a darker spin and focuses much more on good vs. evil.

So I wanted to give a little history of Sabrina the Teenage Witch since I did not read a book to go with it. I found out that the TV series was based on a 1962 Archie comic series of the same name. It was released even before the TV show “Bewitched”. I am not a big comic person but I did check it out and you can read excerpts on amazon which was fun!

I chose outfits inspired mostly by The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina but I did watch Sabrina the Teenage Witch to get inspired. I might do a second post that focuses a little more on here but I had a harder time pulling inspiration since it is from a different decade (it would be fun though!).

Outfit #1: Headbands are a great Sabrina choice! I really love how much The Chilling Adventures brought the headbands.

Headband Nordstrom, turtleneck similar, skirt similar, boots similar (another option)

Outfit #2: This is by far my favorite outfit and I think it is the closest to Sabrina Spellman from the Chilling Adventures. She emphasizes the red and black bringing the witch vibes to a tee. I definitely would not have chosen it without the Sabrina inspiration and I absolutely love it.

Blazer Leith, tights commando (these are amazing), headband Nordstrom, boots similar (vintage), dress similar, belt Madewell

Outfit #3: Throughout these inspiration posts I try to mix my own style with the inspiration. I think this final outfit blends my personal style the best with hints of both Sabrinas (from the Teenage Witch and from the Chilling Adventures).

I hope you are getting into the Halloween spirit!

Leopard for Every Fall Outfit

Yes leopard is a big trend right now. I have seen it everywhere and for good reason. The brown and black patterning goes with just about anything and is an absolute perfect addition to any fall outfit. I am excited to share some fun finds for great additions of leopard. There are so many ways to wear it from small accessories to full on head to toe.

Booties, dress #1, scrunchiemule (from an amazing brand called Able), clutch, scarf, pants, dress #2 (not a true leopard but very similar and from H&M’s conscious collection), sunglasses (I hadn’t though of this but sunglasses would be the perfect leopard accent), loafer (love love love these), clutch #2 (sustainable vegan brand called Wilby)

Some of my favorite leopard pieces:

Nancy Drew Outfit Inspiration

So I am on a little bit of a role with new series and I could not be more excited for this one. I am really trying to use this blog as a place to express myself and do posts that I am really excited about. I have thought long and hard about the kinds of posts I want to write and I have come up with lots of fun ideas for the coming months. For this series, every month I am going to be doing a style post with inspiration from a favorite show, book or movie. September’s inspiration post is Nancy Drew for many reasons. First, I love her as a character and I love her outfits (especially in the 2007 movie with Emma Roberts). One thing I really love about her style is the retro/vintage that I can mix into modern trends and pieces. The other big reason I chose this one first is that the new TV series is coming out in October (see trailer).

I chose three outfits from different scenes in the movie and I added one bonus photo at the end that to me reflects the new series. Challenging myself to create these looks out of items I already own was so much fun!

Outfit #1: Penny loafers are a defining aspect of a Nancy Drew outfit. My favorites are these G.H. Bass & Co. ones but Everlane has some really great options! She also always layers either a sweater or trench coat. She adds quite a bit of plaid in the movie. She wears a trouser often but I paired this sweater and loafers with a plaid skirt as well since it is a little more my style!

Outfit #2: Nancy Drew wears a very similar outfit in the opening scene as well as the later scene with the car bomb. This is the outfit for sleuthing plus it is so comfortable. It also looks so classy but not too dressy! She wears a lot of headbands in the movie but I wanted to add my own style to these outfits as well. I did add a jeweled headband in with this outfit.

Outfit #3: Last but certainly not least is a classic tweed suit/dress. Personally this might be my favorite outfit ever. I don’t get to wear it much since it it pretty dressy but I love it for a Nancy Drew look. This is a look inspired by her first day of school outfit as well as the outfit she wears to the courthouse.

So I wanted to add a bonus outfit to tease the new TV show a little! Her style is definitely going to be way different but I am still super excited to watch. The most I got from the preview was her work uniform (a dress over a white shirt, still classically Nancy Drew) and her classic denim jacket look. I will alway be a denim jacket fan so it definitely felt more like me!
