Good Morning and Happy Friday, everyone!
Before we launch into another weekend (and before I head up to Haunted Overload with friends this evening and then embark on a day trip to Vermont tomorrow morning!) I thought I’d share another creepy and cozy classic from my closet- say that five times fast- that I wore during a recent outing to Amherst a couple of days ago where some friends and I dropped by to pay our respects at Emily Dickinson’s grave while visiting some notable and historic figures buried in the area.
I’m sure many of you have seen the skeleton printed onesies and hoodies that are popular around Halloween- it’s the festive costume that doesn’t require much work at all and is appropriate for pretty much any party in October- but to me they’ve always looked a bit plain. There’s nothing about them that particularly screams “unique” to me.
So this over-sized, soft, frayed black and white skeletal sweater- which is a lot more chic and easier to dress up or down- is one of my favorite things to wear this time of year! The bone print isn’t just limited to the front of the sweater, either. It’s also printed along the back and on both of the sleeves, as well!
I paired this sweater with some black, velvet & nylon leggings and my buckled boots with a low heel (so that I could still walk around Amherst comfortably!) I opted out of jewelry this time around- but completed the look with a bold red lip to give me a pop of color.
I’ve still got a couple more weeks to get some extra wears out of this sweater- which is good since I can throw it on with my skinny jeans or a black skirt and my knee high boots next time around- but I’d like to think I’m fearless enough to wear it year-round.
With the new ‘Halloween’ opening tonight (Michael Myers is actually the only horror movie villain that ever truly frightened me growing up- so this new movie is going to be wild to see in theaters!) and a weekend filled with visiting some of the spookier areas in New Hampshire and Vermont- something tells me I’m going to need to sleep with a light on come Sunday night!
I hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend. I’ll be back next week with photos and recaps from my journeys over the next couple of days- and I’ll also have a great Game Day recipe I’ve been savoring with every Patriots victory this season!
See you all on Monday!
