First, allow me to recap... at this time last year, I was super busy with
work, home, and costuming three kiddos to look like this:
Which meant that my own Halloween costume was reduced to this:
This year, I've been informed that the Wizard of Oz was my last hurrah in family theme-costuming. Hey, at least I went out with a bang. What does that mean for this year? NO EXCUSES for costume fail laziness! Hey, Kahlua Monster Mudslide shirt, it's been fun- but you're sitting this one out. Yesterday, I went about proving to myself that, with not much effort, it was possible to pull a DOZEN cute costumes right out of my closet. Really! So if you're stumped for ideas, and in the market for suuuper simple, quick and fun costume ideas this year- you're in for a treat. We'll be posting a new costume every day from now until Hallween(ish). Step away from the lingerie-inspired devil/angel/nurse/cat, open your closet doors and get excited!

For this quick and easy costume, I pinned my hair into a faux-bob, paired a striped Splendid tee with black 7 For All Mankind denim, and topped it off with a vintage beret. Bonus points: Add a white face, round blush, and red lip. VOILA!
