I have always loved black….but rarely do I wear it from head to toe in fear of looking goth.  In spirit of Halloween however, I thought it appropriate.  And yes, I do in fact look goth, but I am ok with that for the moment.  How great are capes!?  They are everywhere right now.  I have to restrain myself from buying every one I see. I love them structured and buckled…like THIS ONE and THIS ONE.  But oversized and knit are equally as droolworthy….like THIS ONE and THIS ONE. *sigh

So…tell me, how old is too old to dress up for Halloween?  Have I reached that age?  Say it ain’t so.  I have been busy sewing up Rylee’s Halloween costume.  Here is a SNEAK PEAK.  I must say it had been FAR too long since I busted out the ‘ol sewing machine.  I forgot how much fun I have creating things! And it’s even better when what I am making is itty bitty.  Half the time to construct and triple the cuteness!  I see a possible baby etsy store in my future! Anyway, I whipped together a quick costume for me while I was at it, but then became a little self conscious that maybe I am a mom now and I should leave the costumes to the “kids”! Ugh.  I just can’t help but think how cute a family photo of all of us dressed as “cave people” would be! haha. I don’t know what else to call us.  But we will all be in animal print, unless someone (husband) is a party pooper.  Stay posted!

Happy Halloween everyone!

    Kelli: I absolutely LOVE this outfit. I’ve been looking for a way to layer with black without looking too gothic, and I definitely like the white knit hat with this. Keep up the amazing posts, you’re so inspirational!

    PS. Rylee is the most adorable girl! I am pretty sure that’s because she has one awesome mom ;)
