Easy Last Minute Halloween Costumes
Posted on

If you're like many of us, Halloween always seems to come out of nowhere! If you're like ME, you weren't going to dress up at all until you received a last-minute invite out and now you're scrambling to find something right out of your closet. Because your daughter's unicorn princess costume was just a little biiitt (lol, ok) too small, you're now staring at what you have to scrounge together and call a costume. 

We put some simple ideas together from items straight off of the Chelsea's Boutique sales floor! 

The Spy


I know what you're thinking...

"I do not have hot pants in my closet. Nope." Well, okay, fine. But do you have black leggings? Those will work, too! I chose this quick costume for myself because I have an over-abundance of black in my closet. These vegan leather leggings are actually amazingly comfortable - I was pleasantly surprised and with a turtle-neck and a blazer or long jacket, you can instantly call yourself a whole slew of things: Spy, Secret Agent, our Confidence Stylist Tianna ;) , Stevie Nicks - the list goes on. Add a hat and some shades and you're good to go!


Arthur the Aardvark!


Chelsea gets some extra points for creativity here. This is about the very last thing I could've possibly thought of for a Halloween costume. How cute is she as Arthur?! Can you even say "Arthur" without also singing the chant "A - A - R - D - V - A - R - K" because if you can, that's impressive. What I love the most about this costume is the fact that every single one of the clothing items is 100% wearable on a day-to-day basis. A pair of KanCan jeans, a super soft cable knit sweater, a button-up blouse, and our wedge sneaks. Dollar Store on the way to your party? Grab a pair of brown animal ears! 


Mary Poppins


This suits Allison so much and I love that. Allison is compassionate, kind, precise and incredibly smart. I would also use those words to describe Mary Poppins! She found a midi-length plaid skirt, a basic button-up blouse, a blanket scarf and a hat to complete her costume. Grab an umbrella and you're out the door! Same thing here as with Chelsea's costume - each of these pieces is 100% wearable on any given day which makes this idea easy and practical.
