The title of this post is a bit misleading. I probably won’t be dressing up for Halloween this year as I work in an office. I’m sure they wouldn’t mind if I dressed up but I might feel a little silly dressing up by myself. Children probably won’t come to my apartment complex to trick or treat. I don’t have any plans to attend a party so in fact, I am not ready for Halloween after all.
But this outfit makes me feel a bit more in the spirit of halloween. I am loving that velvet is a huge trend this season as I’ve been obsessed with it for a few years now. It’s warm, cozy, and so chic! I think I own two velvet skirts, a dress and leggings – oops. I’m planning on filming a velvet lookbook this weekend so look out for that next week!
Growing up I used to make all of my own costumes. The most notable being Shaun White, Michael Phelps and a pink poodle. I wish I could find photos of those costumes. I was pretty proud of them. Now I usually default to dressing as the Log Lady from Twin Peaks. All you need is a log, flannel shirt, big glasses, and some hiking boots! Maybe the next time I have plans for halloween I’ll get more creative with my costume but for now the log lady works fine for me.
I had to do some editing magic (Thanks photoshop!) to make these photos match how I feel about autumn and halloween. The colors and cooler weather are taking their own sweet time here. But at least I can go outside in a sweater and not want to die of a heat stroke, right?
Do you have a default halloween costume? Are you dressing up this year?
