DIY Halloween Costumes

Part of the fun of Halloween is the hunt for costumes! We always made / put together our Halloween costumes. I even inherited the big box of costumes pieces from my parents when I got married.

Here are a few past DIY costumes:

The Milkman and a 50′s Housewife (scandalous, yes, I know)
Essentials: carton of milk, milk man patch (we ironed one on a white shirt), white pants, bow tie 50′s Housewife: vintage style dress (thrift store), apron, pearls, cleaning gloves, milk mustache (white toothpaste) and of course a baby bump #maternity #halloween #costume

Hawaiian Punch & Dr. Pepper
Dress for a luau with grass skirt and leis, add boxing gloves and carry a jug of Hawaiian Punch! My hubby was Dr. Pepper (He wore scrubs and pinned plastic chili peppers to his stethoscope and made an ID badge that said Dr. Pepper) I can’t find a picture of both of us!

Last year we weren’t as creative… our son was less than 2 months old, so it was a little crazy! Scarecrow- pin patches onto overalls, add some raffia and a straw hat, baby wore monster pjs, I had a witch hat and all black clothes, hubby was a Zombie Marathoner – just wear running clothes and paint your face. Happy Halloween!

My Maternity Style

No, I’m not pregnant. Just finally catching up on my blog!

Below is a collage of my maternity style. Search “maternity” for more detailed posts.

I started last year when I was pregnant with my little boy. A few things that helped me stay somewhat stylish… buy basic maternity pieces, mainly solids and then change them up with fun jewelry, scarfs, shoes, bags (because these are things you can wear after you are pregnant!) I hated spending money on something I knew I would only wear for a short time. Borrow from friends, checkout consignment, dresses were fabulous in the summer, I wore non-maternity pieces as I could to mix it up a bit too. Also, check out my friend Valerie’s site She is awesome – search maternity on her page. We were pregnant at the same time and she has some great looks and tips.

Visit me on Polyvore too- I’ve added a few maternity looks too –

Outside Weekend – Plaid Boat Shoes

We spent most of the weekend outside! The kids loved it!

I wore my plaid boat shoes, but they didn’t make it in the pictures!

Here’s another outfit with my $9 Plaid Boat Shoes.

What do you wear on casual, outside days?
