We have fully embraced October, and it has unofficially became Halloween month on the blog! Since I'm basically the Mayor of Halloween Town it's no surprise that I have fully embraced this. Steady Clothing posts are a favorite of ours every month (see past posts about Steady), but this month is especially fun. Sadly, right now in Georgia it's still HOT so we are embracing the Halloween activities, but we've yet to have Halloween weather.

I am generally not a big fan of the color black, but when it comes to Halloween it's pretty unavoidable. This dress is definitely an exception to that rule though, because it's the perfect Halloween dress without actually being in a costume. Also, the dress is appropriately named the Skull Diva Dress, which is exactly what I felt like, a total Skull Diva. The wiggle dress fit me perfectly and made me feel super confident, which is something that wiggle dresses don't always accomplish. Seriously, it hugged my hips perfectly and it was low cut, but not too low cut where I felt uncomfortable. I was actually wearing red dahlia earrings to add a little bit of color to the outfit, but totally forgot to get them in any photos. I was probably too excited about carving pumpkins later!
Michael is wearing the Craftsman Button Up Shirt, which features an embroidered skull & wrench design. We loved that our pieces matched and both fit our current Halloween obsession. Aside from the skull and wrench design the shirt's stripes were a good alternate to a plain solid color. Also, the embroidered design doesn't 'scream' Halloween so he can wear it all year long. I also may have totally let him act like a goofball, and he did his best male-model impersonation holding the pumpkins. These were just a few of his silly pictures...but trust me there were plenty, plenty more. I'm pretty sure he's a natural model.
What are your plans for Halloween?
What is your 'go-to' pumpkin carving design?
