dressed up for halloween

So I'm going to be completely honest - I really don't like Halloween. At all.

I've never been a fan of putting together a costume. I don't like candy corn, the bite size candy bars {really just because there's too much temptation to eat them all!}, or anything pumpkin-flavored. I'm a big scaredy-cat when it comes to haunted houses, hayrides, etc. Really, nothing about Halloween is that appealing to me.

All that aside, I have put together many costumes {sorority, that's all I can say} for lots of occasions so it's not as if I've never dressed up. I just like to try to keep the outfit simple and work with what I already have in my closet. It keeps costs low and I know I'll be able to wear some part of the costume again. I'm keeping this same mindset and have thought of a few outfits to wear next Wednesday night.

There is nothing that I don't love about this 1920s-inspired outfit. Who wouldn't want to wear a jeweled dress as beautiful as this with T-strap heels that can become a staple in your shoe collection? A few lovely accessories, like pearls, art-deco inspired earrings, and a headpiece, and you'll be feeling glamorous all night. 

While the black dress and pearls Audrey Hepburn sports as Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany's is a pretty outfit, why not try wearing something different? Throw on a men's tuxedo shirt in a few sizes too big, some comfy flats, and the iconic sleep eye mask and everyone will still recognize you while you're out and about. An adorable plush cat is the best accessory here.

Or you can keep it simple but fancy with any LBD in your closet. Put on some pretty heels, sparkly jewels, and grab a mask and you're ready for any Halloween occasion.

I am definitely considering one of these, but haven't really made up my mind yet. Have you decided on a costume for next Wednesday?
