Wear it Wednesday | Halloween Outfit Ideas from your Closet

I am the Ebenezer Scrooge of Halloween, no really. But playing dress up is always fun, even if it’s just for dinner at home with your spouse. PS. I literally put a sign on my front door that says we don’t have candy and to not knock on our door.

This is an easy outfit for Halloween out of my closet, I have had this gorgeous fitting black dress from Old Navy for at least 5 years, while I am not a fan of the fiber content it. It reminds me of Audrey from Breakfast at Tiffany, which was a movie I loved in High School, it has it flaws but she does have impeccable style!

Easy and child friendly, I grabbed a black top and black jeans and black boots is perfect to layer with my leopard coat and make a few ears to put on a headband and Ta Da! No tail on this kitty though…I’m a Minx.

50’s Vintage
50’s day was always a fun dress up day in elementary school, this new to me wool skirt is perfect to pair with my grandmother’s cashmere beaded cardigan and some fun flats, since sneakers aren’t my favorite. I love how this skirt isn’t a poodle skirt but a timeless plaid that has a more conservative cut for the period. It’s important to note, that a slip is required for wool skirts, especially if they aren’t lined!

Other Easy Outfit Ideas:
Farmer – overalls with plaid & boots
Hippie – palazzo pants, flowy tops, braids, feathers
Vintage 90’s – start by going through all the boxes from your high school years. Grab a tee, a bootcut pair of jeans, and finish with a letter jacket

Are you celebrating Halloween? Even if it’s just you, your spouse, and a ZOOM party with friends! Who else hits the candy aisle at the store on November 1? (This girl!)
