Dress? Vintage Scassi, Antique Avenue Jacket? Costa Blanca (leather here or faux here)Boots? Aldo
 Clutch and bracelet? Thrifted

And just like that, it's Halloween. I'm going to say it... time flies.
I wish I could impress you all with some crazy, clever costume but we are typically very lazy in our Halloween celebrations. We went to a Halloween party this weekend and things were kinda last minute (how I roll...) so I filled up a Tim Hortons travel mug and put on the viking helmet I just had lying around in the attic. No big deal.

Honestly we more celebrate the Day-after-Halloween, than Halloween itself. Obviously, this is 100% due to discounted candy. Every year I tell myself that this is the year that I won't get stomach pains off excessive Reese's and every year... it happens again. It's like an awesome but painful tradition. And even when I avoid buying the candy, Matt will proudly come home with the post Halloween loot. He lets me know he loves me with cheap, mini Wonderbars and those molasses candies in orange wrappers.
I know almost everyone hates those chewy candies but I just love them... myself and the grandmothers in the world...

Haha, love it. I love getting discounted holiday merch, and I bet there are great deals on candy! Not sure if we're going to get trick-or-treaters (new house, brand new development) but I dressed up over the weekend and had a blast!

I am eating candy as I read this post ;)

Love the print of your dress!

Tim Hortons travel cup for the win! I totally agree about celebrating the day after. I love discounted candy so why not extend the holiday?

You look radiant in that dress xx

Holy Long Hair, Batman! I hardly recognized you. But the viking hat gave it away.

I really love how you styled the dress, a woman after my own heart! You look good in leather! And I completely forgot about the post halloween candy deals! ill join you in stomach pains tomorrow.

Great styling. Flirty and sweet, but wait...the leather gives you a bit of a bad boy vibe. Love it! Happy Hallowe'en.

WHERE do you find those molasses candies. They are my absolute fave I live in TO but would consider a drive to get them. That was the best part of halloween, HEAPS of those for one little chocolate bar. Mhwwahahaahaa

Britt {Secondhand Magpie} said...

Micah just bought 5 bags of candy and warned me to 'not eat it all', as if I'm some sugar sucking black hole. Well, maybe I am a little, but 5 bags? C'mon.

I love your dress! It is so pretty.

Also, I know what you mean about the stomachache on Reese's. My dad works there, actually, so we get A LOT of Halloween candy.

I loved this post but I feel like I would have loved it more if you posted a picture of you playing that piano that you were posing in front of. Food for thought for next time. Happy Halloween my friend! Hope all is well!

I burst out laughing at the end of this post because I was just reminiscing this evening with my sister about how those molasses-toffee candies were the absolute worst! haha. Although I am with you on the Reese's love!

Also - the colours of that dress are lovely!

Erin said...

Just had to pop in to say, I can't believe you got that jacket from Costa Blanca!!!

Thrifted or Scripted? said...

I'm not much for celebrating halloween, but thanks for the reminder, I need to get to the store and buy some of that cheapO candy. NOW. You're definitely a cool viking.

I love how you combined the dress with the rest of the pieces. The leather jacket looks great with it
