Honestly, I forgot that it was Halloween until about noon today when I walked into campus' coffee shop and all the workers had costumes on... Oops.
This is what happens when you celebrate over the weekend; you forget about things like dates of the actual holiday pretty quickly.
I always have good intentions to get into Halloween, but then life happens and I'm always left figuring out a costume at the last minute.
This year a friend of mine directed to the American Apparel website, where I found this idea to dress like a kite!
I found it hilarious, so I thought, "why not?"
Except no one knew what I was...
My favorite reactions?
"I'm going as a kite."
"Oh. Don't blow away?"
"Do you know what I am?"
"A Keebler elf?"
Yeah... the hat went off quickly after that.
Shirt - Thrifted (originally Gap)
Tights - Thrifted
Bow Ties - Thrifted
Shoes - Payless
Although, I did then throw my phone, lipstick, and...err, tail into the hat and turned into a "clutch", as my elf calling friend said, "in true Laura Whitman" style.
Next year, I'm going to start planning much earlier.
Have a great and safe Halloween everyone!
