We know what you're thinking, Queens. Halloween? Already? We're totally on the same page as you! And if you're anything like us, we're sure you're scrambling for a last minute costume. We also have a hard time spending tons of money on a costume we're going to wear for less than 12 hours. Our tip every year is to use things in your closet that you already have or shop for things that you know you'll wear again! We've put some looks together that create some great costumes but that can also be worn separately well past the Halloween holiday!
Call us crazy but we can feel the fall weather slowwwwly rolling in [ or maybe we're just really anticipating it! ] Like most, fall is our favorite season here at Kittsona. The weather is cool enough to layer but not too cold that you have to sacrifice fashion for warmth [ -10 degrees in December, anyone? ] Crisp weather, the changing leaves, pumpkin spice lattes [ they really are delicious! ] our list of fall favorites could go on foreverrrrr.
Every Queen has a section in their closet that they always reach for. Their favorite pieces that they find both comfortable and fashionable [ two things we think are KEY when picking out something to wear! ] Our favorite section we reach for most often? Basics. They provide a neutral base for us to mix + match with statement styles and our favorite bold accessories.
Basic definitely doesn't mean boring in our world and we are loving the way a simple basic can provide us with a blank canvas with endless possibilities. Don't worry, we still love our bold statement pieces [ crazy patterns + bold colors ]
A closet packed full of clothes but still don't have anything to wear? We've so been there. In today's blog we're covering one of our go-to summer staples: dresses. They're comfortable, stylish and so versatile. With summer comes warm weather and we love throwing on a light weight summer dress without having to worry about finding a full outfit to put together.
Enjoy five of our favorite dress picks that can be worn to any occasion from a day at the farmer's market to a night out with your BFF's!
By now you've probably been into at least one store that is F U L L of Christmas products. It's crazy to us that it is already that time of year! Before we jump into all things Christmas though, we can't forget about Thanksgiving! A fun time to reflect on all of the things we're [ thankful ] for! Family, friends, food [ definitely the food! ] We just really love Thanksgiving!
This blog we're featuring a yummy dessert from 'The Year of Cozy' book! To say that we're obsessed with this book would be an understatement. It features 125 recipes, crafts and other homemade adventures. You will definitely be the host with the most [ or everybody's favorite guest! ] if you bring out this delicious burnt butter-pear-ginger crumble!

Is it just us or does it seem like we blinked and summer is over? It feels like we were just celebrating the school year being over yesterday and soon enough the first day of classes will be here. The thought of projects, presentations and homework leaves us dreading going back to school but there are a few positives for getting back into the school groove. Getting back into a schedule, decorating your new apartment or dorm room and picking out the best school supplies are all exciting things that we look forward to at the start of each school year.
It's no secret that we here at Kittsona are in LOVE with animals. Big, small, cats, dogs... we're obsessed with ALL of them.
