. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Happy Halloween

October 31, 2012

Happy Halloween

vest: old navy  shirt: american eagle  leggings: jcpenny  boots: kohls

This is my ideal comfy outfit for a chilly Fall day, like today.  Tonight I will be spending my evening sitting on my couch, eating Chris' delicious chili, watching Survivor, and greeting the one adorable trick or treater we'll get. 


Despite yesterday's post, I wasn't a total Halloween scrooge this year. 

This year I found out we were going to a costume party the morning of, so I had about 2 hours after work to figure out a costume.  Thanks to a borrowed hat and shirt from my sister-in-law and the Target dollar spot for some big glasses, I was Where's Waldo?


Now if only I could control Chris' costume choice.  I will happily say I didn't have anything to do with his costume, as he chose to be some annoying character from South Park. Which I am the farthest from a fan of.  But I am impressed with his robot making ability.  


Maybe once I have kids I'll be able to control what costumes they are.  At least for a few years, right?

Happy Halloween!




Pin It!

Love your costume! What a great idea. I love costumes that aren't too over the top and can be pretty much found in my closet. (Apparently I am not crazy about standing out) so your outfit just might get pinned for next year. Just cause. :)
And what is it about guys and that show (shudder) Ick. Seriously.

I LOVE the vest. New-ish? I get a lot of wear out of vests here.
Did you have a class party? My students ate candy for 2 hours and then went home. *Can't wait* for tomorrow.

Your cozy outfit is adorable, and a night of eating chili and chilling on the couch sounds like my kind of Halloween! I am soooo not a fan of South Park either, but my bf LOVES it... such is life!

Your Waldo costume is so cute! I can't say I'm a South Park fan either... the tone/sound of their voices is so annoying! One of my twin daughters was a ladybug too!

I am all about that outfit and chili, the couch and bed early.
By the way - 9:30 (pm) was a half hour after I went to bed.
I failed.
Haha.

She looks so precious. I love your boots.

Your Where's Waldo costume is amazing for such a short put together time! Christopher went as that a few years ago and we just used red duct tape on a white shirt since we were low on time, haha!

Sarah Burton said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Eeek Survivor! Literally one of my all-time favorite shows.
The costume looks great! Target's dollar spot always delivers.
