i’ve been thinking about halloween a lot recently because its coming and its in less than 2 weeks! ah exciting! around here, in my art school, there’s a big halloween costume party this weekend! i’m so excited and i’ll definitely be sharing live updates from the event itself and its so exciting! even though i have class on halloween my friends and i are thinking about trick or treating on embassy row – which is supposed to be super fun but of course i’ll keep y’all updated on my plans as always. and today, i’m sharing some halloween costume stuff! most people know i am REALLY not a costume fan so today i was decided to share some costumes you could put together with either clothes you already own – or with clothes you could buy and wear again!
as always, a note to all my readers – this post does not mean i own any of the above, or that i will buy any of the above. it just means that i like it visually and (unless noted) i do not own it; all that i will write about is stuff i hear from friends and other users of the product as well as the visual aspects of the product which i will mention in the comment below!
here we are!
cheetah print is SUPER in right now so the decision to be a cheetah would put you in the trend arena! i love the wrap dress look and i would totally love to buy it and wear it.

being a cowboy would be super easy! throw on some denim, either a skirt, shorts or jeans and a white tee and buy some cowboy boots (which are also a HUGE trend of the moment) and you can pair with a bandana or even a bandana scrunchie and poof you’re a cowboy!
