Halloween is fast approaching!! Do you have a costume party to go to and your not sure what to wear, or a gathering at your child's school and you need to look festive, just not sure how?!! I have found that dressing up for Halloween is a tricky thing as an adult and especially now as a mom! I do not want to be that person that goes over board, but at the same time I do not want to be that mom that is a total bore and does nothing at all! SO, if you are in the same predicament, I have a few fun solutions!! I have come up with some fun, inexpensive ways to celebrate the holiday without having to use fake blood!
1. Grab a fun pair of halloween themed knee high socks and wear with a simple black dress or skirt, and a cute pair of black flats. (2 pairs above by Betsy Johnson from TJ Maxx $7.99 for both) This look works well for a daytime or night time party, depending on how short the dress is!!
2. Wear a pair of fishnets with a black dress or skirt and throw on a witch's hat! Pull of the witch costume without going over the top or breaking the bank, oh and you can look sexy too!
3. Grab a pair of devil horns or cat ears and wear with a black dress(cat ears shown with feathers from costumesinc.com for $8.99).
Suzie skies in the Pyrenees (gunmetal) or Here today...Aragon tomorrow (dark green) or just a plain black polish!
Whatever you decide, I hope you have a fun and safe Halloween!
