outfit: cardigan -- gap; sailor top -- f21; skirt -- uo; tights -- target; flats -- topshop
I was planning on doing a more festive photo shoot for this outfit (ie. at the beach or at the lake), but Robert was unavailable today. I really wish I had a solid colored wall to take photos against because even I am getting tired of my backyard photo shoots. I'm really starting to miss Summer--well, the carefreeness and the late sunsets; I still want it to be cold enough to bundle in chunky knits. Having two jobs and a full school schedule has really started taken its toll. This week felt like it would never end, and it's still not really over.
I was never really into Halloween. I only remembering going trick or treating once; and even that was walking across the street to one house in my prettiest dress with a sheep stuffed animal, and my dad saying I'm going as Bo Peep. Every other year before and after that, my parents would turn on the least lights possible in the house or we would go out to avoid the trick or treaters. My favorite Halloween traditions are watching "Charlie Brown: The Great Pumpkin" and "Hocus Pocus." Watching those has to happen in the month of October. So this is my nod to Halloween in honor of my kids at work this year. They have such cute costumes planned: Snow White, Iron Man, Spiderman, Ninja, Cinderella, Bumblebee, etc. I cannot wait to dress up my kid for Halloween; I just don't want to take them Trick or Treating. I have had this top for months actually. I am glad I finally found a time to wear it without appearing too cheesy. I'm pretty sure this is going to be my default "costume" year after year now.
I wish you all a safe and fun Halloween weekend! Mine will be spent catching up on homework; planning lessons; and working.
Until next post,
