For the past few years we’ve focused on the kids’ costumes for Halloween, and not much else. We hit a couple of houses, swing back home for an early bedtime, and set out a bowl of candy for kids to help themselves. When Taylor announced a few weeks ago that he didn’t want to go trick-or-treating, but instead wanted to stay at home and hand out candy, I thought I would take the opportunity to do up a fun treat table for the kids and adults in the neighborhood.

Black and gray with a pop of color or pattern (usually in the form of a scarf) is what you’ll find me in most fall and winter days. That, and a pair of Frye boots. My girlfriend turned me on to Fryes a couple of years ago, and I pretty much lived in these cognac ones last fall and winter seasons. I expect this year will be more of the same. They are comfy and stylish, and add such a nice warmth to the black/gray palate. And they’re much more practical for walking through fields in an attempt to capture the vibrant green backdrop than a pair of 4-inch heels would have been, which is my other shoe style of choice.
