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.
Colorblock jumper – Zara (similar here) // Knitted jacket – Zara // Black pumps/court shoes – Zara (old) // Sneakers – Golden Goose // Trousers – Mango chaps
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.
Jumper – Boden Off Duty Merino jumper // Jeans – Diesel Fayza Jogg Jeans // Sneakers – Golden Goose
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!:)
