For today’s post I wanted to incorporate fall and winter but in a more fancier outfit that what I have done my fashion posts about before. I got this outfit with the intention of wearing it to a nice dinner or in the summer, but seeing as how we have about 7 months until summer I wanted to come up with a way to wear it now. By paring this outfit with some simple black tights and some booties I was able to do that (although I was still freezing 😉 ) I have also really being loving statement necklaces this season so I also knew I had to incorporate that in some how.

This year I was really lost for a costume idea and I decided I wasn’t going to dress up, but then I thought I would just do a cool hairstyles. When I found this Minnie Mouse bun tutorial I remembered I had the perfect dress and it would be a great quick DIY costume 🙂 The hair took some practice (who knew that pig tails would be so hard lol) but after I figured it out I loved the result!
Today I will be sharing with you my costume pictures as well as how to incorporate things you already have in your closet into an easy and quick costume! I know that it is November and a whole year till next Halloween, but i thought that this would be a fun post to do 😉
My hair was inspired by the amazing Mindy from CuteGirlsHairstyles & Annie from Anniesforgetmeknots ❤
Bow from: Bowtikii
I found my shoes at Payless and then added red hair bows from Claire’s that I had from a halloween costume from a few years ago
Don’t mind my awkward pose as it was freezing out 😉
My dress I got second hand about a year ago, and then I paired it with a black cardigan I had in my closet and with some black tights! I also drew on my nose with some black eyeliner and added a white line with some face paint.
As you can see it is super easy to come up with a costume from things you already have and It doesn’t need to come from a store and cost 80$, all you need is a little imagination and creativity 🙂 My dress isn’t an exact match for Minnie’s, but thats okay because thats where your creativity comes in and you can make it your own!
The only things I bought was the shoes which were 15$ and the tights that we’re 3$, so my whole costume cost me about 18$! (it also only took me a few days to put together and I only came up with it about a week ago)
I hope you had a great Halloween filled with fun memories and lots of treats! 🙂
