I am so excited for Halloween this year. I don’t think I’ve been this excited since high school. After we outgrew trick or treating, we had this tradition with one of our close family friends’ that we would go to their house to hang out. In middle school, that meant Razor-scootering on the sidewalk (with light-up wheels, of course). And by high school, it was a full-on party with everyone from our friend group joining in. Through college, I always hated it because it meant trashy costumes and lots of drinking. Then it was just kind of hard to get in the spirit of things in my various apartments, where there were no trick or treaters.
When we bought our house, one of the things that I was so pumped about was kids trick or treating. Like, I’ve been counting down the days since June when we moved in 😂 Mike even showed his cards the other day when he texted me saying he was ordering full-sized candy bars… I told him he was speaking my love language.
I got the scoop from the moms on my street about trick or treating. (I also semi-joked that if it wasn’t a big trick or treating street that moving to the suburbs would have been a complete waste, haha.) Anyway, Mike and I are excited and I’m sure we’ll be popping over to see his nieces and goddaughter too. Rumor has it that they have epic costumes planned.
I put on this outfit to shoot a campaign (going live today on IG!) and then was really feeling the light so had Carter shoot a couple of extras! This is 95% going to be what I wear on Halloween. Feels festive enough while still being “me”!
The best part is that these are things I’ve had in my closet for years now. I have definitely been tempted to buy more (fall clothes are my ultimate weakness, I think), but it’s a good reminder that I LOVE everything I already own!
