Halloween In Your Closet

     Happy Friday Glam Squad! Halloween is less than a month away and I have to let you in on a little secret- I'm not the biggest Halloween fan. Womp womp!!  Every party has a pooper and the pooper is... ME!  See the thing is,  I thoroughly enjoy being Marianne 365 days a year and kind of feel like finding a costume is a bit of a hassle. So why not look any further than your closet!?!?  It's time to get creative! There are PLENTY of  pieces out there that could lend themselves to a fun Halloween look!  Below, I put together 5 costumes that include many things you may already own (i.e.; Scuba leggings, black converse, plaid button up) or things that should be added to your fall wardrobe (i.e., Over the knee boots, midi skirt)! Wasting dough on something that is ill fitting, made with material that doesn't breathe, and worn for one night seems a little crazy to me when you can add pieces to your wardrobe that can do double duty! Take a gander below and get inspired! 

One // Two // Three // Four 
Off the Shoulder Top // Cat Eye Glasses // Midi Skirt // T-Strap Pumps

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 
1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 

Scuba Leggings // Knee-High Boots // Black Body Suit
Hope you enjoyed this post and it got your creative juices flowing! You may not win a costume contest for the most creative look, but you will win in the game of saving money, looking fab, and making the most of things you already have!
That my Fashion Saving Tip of the Day (#FSTD)! 
Have a great weekend and enjoy every day of October, it's my favorite month of the year!

    1. Great minds think alike girl, I love the 80's look too! It looks the most comfortable! Have a great weekend! xo

  2. I really love that you don't have to buy too much to make a Halloween outfit!! 50's girl or cat woman are great!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. I can't believe you don't like Halloween! It's my favorite! And yet you did an amazing job with these creative costumes!! I actually love that plaid shirt from AE, too...maybe I will just get it and say I needed it for my cowgirl costume! LOL

    1. Ha! Great idea! I like seeing the kids dressing up for Halloween but I don't enjoy going out seeing women take it as their excuse to look like a slutty nurse/cop/girlscout/angrybird etc. lol I'm definitely the party pooper! Have a great weekend!

  4. What a fun and creative post! I love the 50's girl. Have a great weekend!

  5. These are such cute choices! So un-costumy like, I love it! I am always an 80s workout girl, it's easy and comfy! I like the rock band groupie too!

  6. I'm totally with you girl - I haven't dressed up in ages. I love these cute, creative (and CHEAP) ideas!

  7. Good ideas! I'm totally a bit of a party pooper when it comes to Halloween too! I loved it when I was a kid but don't dress up much now. Have a great weekend!

  8. Such great ideas!!


  9. Cheers to party poopers all over, because I cringe at the mention of Halloween figuring out what to be is so stressing, definitely not what it should be. This are great options, so easy to recreate.


  10. I love this idea! Halloween costumes can be so pricey, it would be nice to just use things from my own closet! We're thinking of being Mean Girls this year :)

    Your blog is amazing! Just followed you on twitter, instagram, pinterest, GFC and bloglovin. Looking forward to future posts!

  12. Love these costume ideas, and I am thinking about recreating one of these looks for Halloween! Great post Marianne! :D

  13. Thank you so much for sharing these! I don't like buying Halloween costumes only because it's a waste of money but these are great ideas. Thank you!

  14. Such a great post! Love those urban retro!
