I have a tendency to make even simple things complicated. It’s not the best of habits. But things were so crazy leading up to this year’s Halloween that I decided to try something out of character and go simple with Ellie’s halloween costume and use things we already had.
I picked up this little Mexican dress on a trip to Cabo with Chris before we were even pregnant. That’s how sure I was that we were going to have a girl. 🙂 It’s a size “1” but she only ever wore it once and it seemed to still fit her.
I was a very last minute addition. We were going to a friend’s neighborhood to trick or treat and Chris wanted to wear an old skeleton costume so I had to think fast…oh, I can be Frida’s self portrait! A patterned sun dress, shawl, roses in my hair – and the unibrow – and I was set and ready to be painted.
It couldn’t have been easier to put together and we got a ton of compliments. Ellie was even pretty darn cute saying “I Frida Kahlo! A Mexican Painter!”
I hope everyone had a happy halloween!
