The only thing we wanted to do for Halloween this year was walk around the neighborhood and see the decorations. At the last minute, I decided it was silly of us to wander around on Halloween without costumes, so I checked my closet et voila! I was able to put a totally serviceable costume together using clothes I already own AND that I actually wear, although not in this particular combination.
Side ponytail, off-the-shoulder sweatshirt, high-top chucks. I even tight-rolled my jeans for authenticity. Then I topped it off with an overly patched acid-wash jean jacket.
I wasn’t 100% committed (no blue eyeshadow, no bangs), but I think it told the right story. John put on a leather bomber jacket and went as my too-old-for-me boyfriend.
