Mini confession time, you guys: I have never been a huge fan of Halloween. Sure, the freely flowing stream of candy is pretty spectacular (can everyday be free candy day?) and the excuse to dress up as a unicorn judgement-free is unbeatable… but if you’re a person who hates being frightened, the entire month of October is pretty unbearable. Between the absolutely unnecessary amount of spiders and cobwebs (all aboard the nope train express) and the extreme overuse of creepy, lurching decorations (anything that starts talking and/or moving when you walk by it is Satan’s work, no matter the season), there’s just too much trick and not enough treat for this girl. Plus, as you get older, fewer people want to give you free candy (which for me is the whole friggin’ point of the holiday) and instead expect you to go to haunted things (houses, hayrides… don’t invite me if you’re expecting to still have all of your teeth at the end of the evening- these bony elbows are lethal) dressed as sexy things (While I support everyone’s right to wear whatever they want, that just ain’t for me. Though, who hasn’t scrolled through the Yandy site and said, “really? Really? REALLY?!?!”).
As you can imagine, dressing festively this time of year can be a bit of a challenge for me. Sure my closet is drenched in black (and maybe I own a few skull-print things because as an anatomical structure skulls are fascinating #ItsAnArtMajorThing), but there is not a scrap of orange to be found. So, sometimes I get have to just get by with a little help from my friends (and now that song is stuck in your head too) and borrow a few choice items to amp up the chic Halloween factor. Hey, now that I think of it… can there be trick or treating for clothes? Because I would be all over that.
Big shoutout to Jeanne for sponsoring the vast majority of this outfit. Jeans, opinions, and mouthy shoes are 100% my own.
