Happy Halloween! Every year when Halloween rolls around I find myself thinking back to my childhood days of trick-or-treating. It’s pretty safe to assume I was dressed up as the latest Disney princess. I always loved getting dressed up as some character (I was a very theatrical child) but over the years the desire to dress up in a costume changed. I still love to dress up, but in a different way. Now, I genuinely like getting dressed everyday. I pick my clothes based on my mood and my surroundings, much like I chose my Halloween costume as a child.
These days, the thing I love most about Halloween is staying home and passing out the candy to all the adorable neighborhood kids. This will be the first year that we have neighbors on our street. Last year we were the first finished house on the block so I was stuck with a lot of left over candy. I’m excited to see who we have come by this year. I love seeing how creative parents have gotten with costumes these days.
Even though I don’t get dressed up in a costume I am an Oklahoma State Alum so I never miss the chance to wear my bright orange. I wear my orange blazer to work every year on Halloween to feel a tad more festive. I’ve had this blazer since my early Michael Kors days but I have found a couple of similar ones here and here. The color makes it such a fun fall piece. Since we don’t have the variety of colors in the changing leaves in Texas we have to bring the color in through our wardrobe. This blazer does just the trick.
The Halloween spirit must have been in the air, because right as we started shooting, a black cat crossed our path. I’ve never been one for superstitions but I do have to say of all days, it couldn’t have been more perfectly timed. Between the beautiful fall décor on the stoops and my slinky little friend it definitely felt like Halloween.
I have been wearing my OTK boots every chance I get lately! I cannot express how much I love them. I’ve never been able to find a pair that fit perfectly in every way before these Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots. If you have been considering taking the plunge, I highly recommend them. I want them in multiple colors now, but I’m trying to exercise self-control.
Do you have any fun Halloween traditions? Brian loves Halloween, but unfortunately he is at work this year so he’s missing out on the candy and scary movies. I hope that you have a safe and fun Halloween whatever you end up doing! Thanks so much for stopping by! xo Bryn
