Jacket and jeans c/o Modcloth
I think Halloween as a “season” is starting to get more love and I’m heeeere for it. As your resident weird girl, I’ve always been a huge Halloween fan. Just ask my mom – as a kid, I would typically plan my costumes 6-9 months in advance and would try to make sure my hair was grown to the right length for my costume (it never was). Now that I’m an adult, Halloween feels a little different.
Instead of going to collect candy, I usually enjoy a night in and watch a movie to pass out candy to trick or treaters on Halloween night. I also try to spread out the celebrations throughout the entire month by decorating my house early and wearing Halloween-inspired looks like this one!
I found this jacket on ModCloth’s site when I was browsing their adorable Halloween collection, and I knew it had to be mine! I’m trying to up my jacket game so I have plenty of options because y’all, it’s already 50 degrees in Denver during the DAY! I’m learning the art of layering and building looks around my jackets instead of throwing one on as I walk out the door.
I knew I wanted to do something a little special with this jacket. As a lifelong fan of Grease, letterman-inspired jackets always make me think of Rydell High so I put together a simple look that gave out Gothic Greaser vibes. (Although I have to admit, this shoot gave me some Riverdale vibes, too!) Unfortunately I didn’t have any red heels to channel Sandra Dee, so I opted for simple white pumps instead so they didn’t distract from the rest of the look. The dark, high waisted denim (also from ModCloth) was incredibly comfortable and the high waist made it was really easy to tuck my shirt into without having it come out when I sit…y’all know how annoying that is!
Side note: This is my second pair of jeans from ModCloth and I’m a fan! Their size charts seem to be very accurate, which I’m allllll about.
Spooky and creepy and a little bit themed (without being too costumey), this look is definitely one of my faves. I’ll be celebrating Halloween all month long with mini-costumes like this. I’ll share at least a few more, just for fun!
- Anyone else theme their outfits to celebrate Halloween?
- Do you have a fun costume planned this year?
