Happy Monday, guys! I can NOT believe Halloween is next week! I don’t *love* dressing up, mostly because I hate spending money on something I’ll wear once. Last year, Dillon and I were Mama Coco and Miguel, and I didn’t buy a single thing! That being said, I do love getting creative with what I have or finding super affordable options to whip a costume together. Last year, we went to a party where the theme was “alter egos”, and I pulled this off; half grandma, half party girl! In the past, we’ve been to couples costume parties, and Mike and I were Mendez and Diaz from OITNB and then we were Kelly and Ryan from The Office! I used everything I already had for both of those. This year, we went to a party where the theme was [again] favorite TV sitcom characters, so Mike and I did Burt Macklin and Janet Snakehole! Parks and Rec is one of our all-time favorite shows, so this was a no-brainer. We both scored our outfits online so I figured I’d share in case any of you need a last minute idea [god bless Prime!].
I wore a black dress I already had, but this one would be perfect and you could definitely wear it again. Then, all I had to do was get the hat [which was $8] and I borrowed the pearls from a friend. This set is $6 and would be fine. I didn’t carry around the cigarette holder all night, but it was only $2. I used this lipstick for April’s classic nude lip and curled my hair around my face. That’s it!
HOW EASY IS THAT?! Let me know what you guys are going to be or if you take inspiration from our costume.
