|My “tricky” Halloween outfit!|
Who doesn’t love a good trick on Halloween? Well this outfit serves one up!
Can you tell what’s tricky about it before reading on? (Extra candy to you this year if you can, because I don’t think even G would notice it!)
I recently got these cute black & white polka dot tights that I couldn’t wait to pair with this orange skirt, but I had the hardest time trying to decide on a top to wear with them! A solid black top seemed too boring. So did white. What I wanted was a black top with some kind of pattern to make things a little more interesting – but I didn’t have one! Just as I was about to cave and go with a solid black v-neck (yawn) I spotted kind of what I wanted in a different section of my closet…
The top you see in the picture above is actually a dress!
The dress is several inches longer than the skirt so in order to make it work I folded it up and tucked it under the waistband of my skirt, which fortunately was wide enough to hold it securely. No sewing, taping, or new clothes needed!

I usually pair this dress with boots (as seen in the picture above) but for the sake of showing you a proper before and after, here’s a picture of it with the polka dot tights and wedges:
