Halloween Parade Outfit
My favorite neighborhood night of the year is the annual Bloomfield Halloween Parade. It is the city of Pittsburgh's largest night time parade and a total blast for all ages. Though I watch from the sidelines and haven't sported a costume myself, I usually try to dress in a way that evokes the spirit of Halloween. This year I wore a See by Chloé medallion print dress that has muted hues of brown, orange, red, and yellow. The dress is kind of short so I layered a slip underneath and wore opaque black tights. It was cold so I added a cardigan and wore a leather hoodie.
I was hardly prepared for Halloween season this year. I didn't decorate the exterior of my home, other than putting out some pumpkins. I didn't have time to visit the pumpkin patch which I count among my favorite yearly family traditions. I barely thought about a costume. And I am lucky to have remembered to pick up candy to distribute to trick or treaters. Things are so hectic right now that my favorite time of year is flying past me. I am sure things will feel calmer soon enough. In the meanwhile, Happy Halloween everyone!
