Hello, friends! I know, I know, Halloween was last week, but things have been a wee bit crazy for me this weekend (I worked late both Saturday and Sunday) so I am just now catching up from last week. Anyway, I wanted to share some photos of what I wore on Halloween to take my favorite little girl trick-or-treating (I made her Halloween costume – butterfly wings!) and, of course, Ruby in her costume!
First things first, I am wearing a basic gray long sleeve shirt (??, super old) with a green plaid flannel skirt (handmade by me), black leggings (H&M) and a denim jacket (H&M). I paired this outfit with my new favorite booties (Diba via DSW) and the most comfortable boot socks in the entire world, literally called “butter soft” (from Walmart). I accessorized with simple black stud earrings (H&M) and, to top it all off, a gorgeous knit pumpkin hat (handmade by my grandma).
Okay, now on to the pictures I’m sure you all really want to see: Ruby in her Halloween costume! (For those of you who don’t know, Ruby is the darling little girl who I babysit and I made her Halloween costume this year – butterfly wings!)
Ruby is wearing a plain long sleeve black shirt (Hanes via Walmart) with black leggings (Target) and a turquoise blue tulle tutu skirt (Target). She paired this outfit with pink suede leather fringe boots (Minnetonka for girls) and accessorized with a warm black knit hat & gloves (set, from Walmart), glittery flower hair clips, one in each braid (?? ), and a purple jack-o-lantern candy bucket (Walmart). Her butterfly wings and butterfly antenna headband were handmade by me. :)
We’re still working on actually looking at the camera and smiling, but either way, I think she looks pretty darn adorable and her costume was a hit on Halloween night. Everyone gushed over how cute Ruby looked and she had a great time trick-or-treating! I am so lucky that I get to be a part of her life and it was so nice of her parents to invite me to go trick-or-treating with them! :)
Well, I think I am all caught up from Halloween; I hope you all had a great weekend and a great week ahead of you! (PS. Is anyone else inexplicably exhausted from the time change??) As always, thanks for reading :), Kristi
