Halloween Style with Lakeside Bowtique

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of holidays, but I will be the first to admit that Halloween has never been my favorite one (I'm more into Santa Claus + Christmas trees, in case you couldn't tell).  That being said, buying an entire fall wardrobe with ghosts, candy corn or pumpkins on everything isn't really my thing - except for little black cats + festive jammies, of course!  I like to pick one or two super Halloween-y things for Ellie to wear (because there are definitely some really cute things out there!), but am not a fan of the fact that they can only be worn for a couple months of the year...  I mean, I guess they could be worn year-round, but I think you know what I mean. ;)  I love mixing + matching styles, colors + patterns with the changes in seasons and holidays to come up with some fun looks that can easily be switched up and worn all the time!

No outfit is complete without a little accessorizing, and a hair bow is always our go-to.  Hair bows are kind of a necessity when you have a little girl, especially one whose hair is constantly in her eyes if she doesn't have anything holding it back.  I love adding to Ellie's collection and picking versatile bows that go with everything.  Today I am sharing some of my favorite Halloween-esq looks that don't scream "BOO!" but still give off some adorable Halloween vibes, featuring some of the gorgeous bows from Lakeside Bowtique!

I think all of these items can be mixed and matched to create some ridiculously cute Halloween outfits, as well as paired with other wardrobe staples to extend their wear well-past October 31st.  Yes, even those kitty mary janes can be worn year-round, especially in our house. :)

We've been getting a ton of use out of Ellie's Lakeside Bowtique bows ever since Lesa, the sweetest shop owner, sent some over last month!  Lakeside Bowtique is a relatively new shop, located in Texas and ran by a mama to an adorable little girl.  Lesa began making bows for her own daughter as a hobby and decided to take a leap and begin selling them in her own Etsy shop!

There are some super cute bows up for grabs at Lakeside Bowtique, available in a variety of colors, patterns + styles.  I'm a huge fan of sailor bows but those hand-tied pigtail bows are just way too cute for words and I am dying to use them both in Ellie's hair at the same time... the pigtail struggle is very real over here. ;)  That white dottie bow I included above is definitely high on my wish list and would go with just about anything! :)

 We're giving away three Lakeside Bowtique bows of choice on Instagram (@linleynoel) this week, so be sure to head over + enter for a chance to win! Also, Lesa is generously offering our readers 25% off your purchases from now through next Tuesday 10/4 using code LIFEASANOEL25 - now's the perfect time to grab a few new bows for the fall + the holidays, too!  Happy shopping! :)

P.S. I wasn't exaggerating in my last post when I said we've already spent countless hours playing with these pumpkins! ;)

This post is in partnership with Lakeside Bowtique.  As always, all thoughts, opinions + love for the products are entirely my own.
