October is one of my favorite months because the temperatures get lower, everyone is more festive, and the fashion is edgier. I always look forward to the rich, deep colors of the fall fashion trends - my favorite color is black, after all.
Another obvious reason why I love October is because of Halloween. It has been one of my favorite holidays since I was a little kid - I mean, who doesn't like dressing up and pretending to be someone/thing else for a night?! And though I'm an adult, I still love dressing up with my kids - it's just that my costumes now are less umm...how do you say...slutty?
And with three kids who love dressing up on Halloween as much as I do, my costume budget is pretty small. But I still manage to go all out when I can thanks to the power of imagination and DIY!
Last year I put together a couple of DIY costume style boards that were a big hit. They included Gwen Stefani, Chola Chic, and a Playful Panda. This year I'll be putting together more DIY costumes and style boards for you and I'm even open to requests! So if you have an idea of what you want to be this year, let me know and I'll try to put together a costume board for you!
