happy halloween + make it my own monday

Happy Halloween, BOO-tiful friends!

As I mentioned Friday, this weekend I was celebrating good times with some lovely friends in downtown Columbus. We had some killer costumes:

Candyland! 

Ms. Mint, one of the kids in Candyland, Princess Lolly, King Kandy, and Queen Frostine. All home-made costumes! They were a hit at the bars!


The evil trio. We did not plan this. 


I finally decided to be a dark angel. Pretty much it was the only complete set I could find, other than a cat, at the Halloween store without buying a full costume. The wings were fun to wear even though I tended to hit people with them and had a hard time walking through small spaces.

The birthday girls


There aren't any trick or treaters that come to our house, so I'm a little jealous of all of you that get to pass out candy. Shawn and I have not purchased any candy this Halloween season, which is good. We don't need it in our house or else we'd be forced to eat it, which would spoil our diet of Chipotle and pizza.

Did you have a good weekend? What did you dress up as for Halloween?

Also, today is the second installment of Make It My Own Monday  - or MIMO day as we call it - with Chelsea and I. If you're new to this little challenge, we pick an outfit we pinned on Pinterest and use our own clothes to recreate it! I wanted a super casual, comfy outfit for the weekend, so I picked out this outfit for our inspiration:



I tried a couple of versions before settling on this:




Shirt: Old Navy (2 years ago)
Tank: Old Navy (2 years ago)
Jeggings: American Eagle
Scarf: Target
Socks: gift from Miss Chelsea
Boots: Kohls

As soon as I picked our inspiration outfit, I immediately thought of this combination of the tank and shirt simply because the colors were the same. I went with it. And now that the weather is getting colder, I rarely leave the house without a scarf. They are like a drug to me! This scarf is my all-time favorite. 

My favorite black leggings were in the laundry, so I opted for the ever-faithful jeggings.

Would you believe that I bought these boots last year and have never worn them? My IRL friends are not shocked, and you won't be either the more you get to know me and my shopping habits, which I must say have gotten better over this past year. There only a handful of items still with the tags on them in my closets. Anywhoodle - I digress. Back to the boots. They are actually really cute on and these socks were perfect for peeping out the top of them (thank, Chels!).

On Sunday, Shawn and I just ran a few errands in the morning before watching the Browns game with some friends - for which I changed into sweatpants. This means that I did not give due diligence to this outfit - because I only wore it for a couple of hours. So I may be sporting it again this weekend because it was so comfy and cute. So don't judge me if you see me!

Have a SPOOKtacular rest of your Monday and go check out Chelsea's MIMO outfit! She looked adorbs! I loved what she came up with!
