Sparkles, Gingham and Bows, Oh My

Channeling my inner Dorothy for you guys on this Halloween! I had such a fun time making and piecing together the elements for today’s ensemble. I didn’t go for a spot-on Dorothy look, but rather a little more updated interpretation of this sweet Kansas girl we all know and love. Luckily, everything came together fairly easily and quickly on it. There have been years when I definitely could not say the same!

I can’t lie….I was most excited about the idea of wearing some red glitter pumps. That and carrying around this adorable little pooch in his basket (more baskets at I made the skirt, glittered the heels, and snagged the pooch all in the same day! How’s that for productivity? Wish all my days could be that good.

The top is one I found this week at Loft. I’m so happy to have found one that I can wear with other things as well. I thought the delicate peter pan collar and pleating made it perfect for an updated Dorothy though.

Hope you all have a fun and safe Halloween!
