Halloween celebrations.

As with Christmas, Halloween celebrations seem to creep earlier and earlier each year.  I’m often buying Halloween costumes (yep buying – I am not a crafter – though I may surprise you this weekend) late in September, to avoid the slim pickings that are left in the penultimate week of October.  I think Halloween is growing on me – I don’t mind watching the children enjoy it – but it is still one of my least favorite ‘Holidays’ – just a smidgen less despised than Valentine’s Day.

Fortunately my Halloween celebrations began with a new delivery – though some of you may think these trousers should be relegated to a Halloween costume.  I love them.  I present to you the black Mango pleather/denim combi trousers.  These are the black – but yes I have the blue denim too.  The pleather is lovely and stretchy.

I wore them last night to our local Halloween party where the children dressed up and rode a bucking pig.  Oh yes indeed, you read that correctly.

This morning was Fall Festival and this afternoon we have a Halloween party across the street.  It’s the perfect Fall day for hanging out with friends.  I promise a photo later with my Halloween costume:)  For now here’s what I’m chilling in.

One last thing – here’s me trying on the beautiful Zara woolen wraparound coat.  I have this in a Large which I think is similar in sizing to a UK 12/US 8 – it is gorgeous and so soft.

Enjoy your Halloween celebrations this weekend!  I’d love to know what you go as for some inspiration for me for next year!:)
