Reason to Dress Up

Last Thursday, I had a reason to break out of my jean/tank/sweater "uniform" and dress up! Not just dress up, but sort of get in the Halloween spirit too! Fall/Halloween is my favorite, but it seems the days of obsessing over couples costumes and going out to hit up contests are long gone. Now, the focus is on my little one and doing all sorts of fun activities with him!

I've noticed that lots of little towns around here have a monthly girls night out event. For October, the one in Marshall, MI was named Witches Night Out. Being in between where we used to live and where we now live (although, closer to where we used to live), meeting up with some friends after work was a no brainer. Especially not knowing how much longer I will be getting out (a new baby in Michigan Winter can put a damper on such things). Dinner and some light shopping was great!

It was surprisingly easy to match up my olive green witch hat. I've had it for several years and I love having it on hand every season. I got it at Meijer, and was drawn to its satin material, netting, rolled fabric roses and feathers. I added in my own peacock feathers to match my skirt.

The Massini black cowl neck tunic I am wearing is also from Meijer (get a better look at it on their style blog). It is long and goes over the bump, but today I tucked it into my skirt.

The feather/animal print skirt was found by my Mom - she got it at Steinmart. It is stretchy, like all the skirts I have worn during this pregnancy.

Jean Jacket - TJ Maxx (to pull out some of the blue in the peacock feathers)

Boots - Zulily

*Note, all pieces are non-maternity*
I am at 36 weeks here.

You are adorable! I love that hat! And the skirt is fabulous! What a fun outing with friends! We are not really doing anything fun for Halloween here. Just basic Trick or Treating.
