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! 🙂
Today’s blog post is a collab with Julia from Little Chic Freak! I recently found her Instagram and blog and was blown away by her talent and knew she would be a great person to do my first collab with 🙂 When we were coming up with ideas we wanted to incorporate some of our favourite things along with some trends we have been seeing around!
We both decided to incorporate plaid in our owns way. I decided to pair a blanket scarf with a cute striped dress and some little brown booties.
