Affordable Fashion Blog | Walking in Memphis in High Heels : Tweed

Happy Halloween everyone!  I'm so excited to get some hot chocolate tonight and then go sit out on the corner of our street and hand out candy with Shane.  We usually have a couple hundred trick-or-treaters in our neighborhood, so I'm going today at lunch to go buy lots of candy.  Yes, I'm a slacker when it comes to getting candy ahead of time, plus I would have already eaten all the snickers.  I haven't dressed up in years, but I'm thinking I may tonight.  With all my found tulle skirts I have in my closet, maybe I should just be a ballerina.  Does anyone have any good Halloween costume ideas with items that most people already have in their closets?  What are you dressing up as?  Eat lots of Snickers!  = )

  4. I want to dress like you when I grow up. True story. PS i am coming to your hood in Dec...

  5. Ha! You're not alone. I wait to buy our candy until right before too. It would most certainly be gone if I didn't :)

    The yellow looks amazing on you!

    Have a happy Halloween.

  6. Girl I am obsessing over that belt! And don't you just love those shoes?! Ahhh heaven!

    It's the Notre Dame skirt, a little pricey, but is a timeless style and fabric. Will wear well from year to year.

  9. Ugh send some skirts my way... I have yet to add one to my closet and I want one ASAP!! lol

  10. Whether you "dress up" for Halloween tonight or not you look adorable in this ensemble.

    Have a blast tonight!

  11. Happy Halloween! I think I can be a pirate with the stuff I currently have in my closet? Scarf, striped shirt, boots. Done. Love your skirt here, looks like it will be perfect through winter with some tights!

  14. Ooo I love that skirt!! It is too cute! And it looks great with the yellow blouse! And I LOVE that bag!! If I were dressing up, I would be Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffanys, but I am not. Also, it is pouring so I don't think there will be a lot of Halloween going on around here tonight. Also, you should totally be a ballerina! I wanted to do that last year, but I didn't dress up then either... Happy Halloween!


  15. Happy Halloween! I am loving this outfit especially the bright color. Those heels are gorgeous.


  16. That skirt is fabulous and the whole look is simply stunning on you! I hope you had a wonderful Halloween :)

  18. So chic! Your shoes and your bag are the perfect neutral accents to your outfit and look killer together!


  19. Great tweed skirt! The neutral accessories are perfect with this look. And a ballerina would be an adorable costume! Pics??? I was a total bah-humbug this year for Halloween :-(


  20. You look so good! I'm loving those heels! They are so fabulous!
