My Halloween Costume: Mary Poppins ☂️

Hey earth muffins! Halloween is tomorrow, and I cannot wait! 🎃 The holiday festivities started on Friday, so I have already rocked my Halloween costume to a couple of dances/events. This year, I wanted to pick a costume where the pieces could be repurposed instead of only being worn on one night... As you saw in my most recent thrift haul, the pieces I purchased for my costume can be worn separately after Halloween - yay for sustainability!

If you want to be Mary Poppins for Halloween too, here is what you will need:

*Black hat OR low bun hairstyle - This was the one piece that tripped me up, as I couldn't find a black hat anywhere. This was probably a good thing because I would never have worn it after Halloween... Putting your hair in the classic Mary Poppins bun will work just fine!

*Red bowtie - I had to make mine using thrifted fabric; I will be writing a post soon on how you can make your own hairbows because I think it is super fun and quite easy to do!

*White button down - The shirt Julie Andrews wears in the movie has some ruffles on it, but I went with a classic button down so that I can wear it to work after Halloween. 🧛‍♀️

*Black flared skirt - I was able to find the PERFECT skirt for this costume while thrifting (and it was only $1.50!). Any type of black skirt will do!

*Black nylons - My legs are ghost white 👻, so wearing some black nylons was a must for me... You could definitely rock this costume without them if you prefer that!

*Black ankle boots (with a heel) - My mom let me borrow some of her shoes that look like they are directly from the movie. Making sure your shoes are comfortable is a must, as you will be in them all night!

*Black umbrella - You could even DIY the bird handle that is so iconic from the film, but I didn't think it was necessary. 😊

*Black or patterned bag - If you want to carry some things around with you, why not tie a purse into Mary Poppins' look? Her bag is patterned, but a black purse would work just fine.
