Jacket: Free People | Blouse: Chicwish | Skirt: old (similar) | Glasses: Prada | Bag: Coach | Boots: Forever 21

With Halloween only 3 weeks away, it’s got me thinking about how much I’ve always loved dressing up for the holiday.

As a kid, I would dress up as a witch every year and would go all out, right down to the long black glue-on nails and my face painted bright green. In college it was the ever so original bunny, and even after college I was once an astronaut where literally my whole costume LIT UP.

And for a woman who loves playing dress up even now, isn’t it almost like everyday can be Halloween? Everyday I get to march into my closet, stare at the costumes and choose what I will be today. One day it’s chic, one day it’s classic, one day it’s rock-and-roll, or one day even band leader, when I choose to wear this Free People band jacket.

In the end, I’ve taken my love for Halloween and gone a step further. Instead of throw away costumes on November 1st, I’ve evolved into investing in costumes that will hang in my closet for much, much longer 🙂

Thank you for reading!

    Hah this post is so cute. I personally love this band jacket and the detailing on it. I dress up for Halloween with my girls each year and it’s really fun to see what they come up with!

  2. This jacket looks so great how you’ve styled it! I’m the opposite and hardly ever dress up for Halloween, ha. Maybe someday when it’d be fun to match with Lila!

    I getcha! Those Halloween costumes ain’t cheap! I actually didn’t get into Halloween as much as when my son was born then all of the sudden it’s a holiday I look forward to! But I love your idea of investing in more of a wardrobe pieces that can be worn any time you want to. This jacket is beautiful and I like how you styled it!
