Now that you’re a mom, you have three choices when it comes to dressing for Halloween (You must now officially retire the sexy nurse costume and donate it to someone who wears a push up bra because they want to. Not because they have to.)
Here are your 3 choices:
1. You could wear this….(But don’t. Please don’t.)
2. Organize a family “theme” costume……(This might be fun, but maybe a bit over the top and would also require some major bartering with your husband in order to get him to agree to such a spectacle. Unless you have something you are willing to give up, steer clear!)
3. Be festive, yet “cool”. Cause we are all cool moms here, right? (<—- Ding! Ding! Ding! Winning option right here, folks!) As per a reader suggestion, I’ve rounded up a few Halloween outfits for moms (cool ones) that won’t break the bank but will put you in exactly the place you belong….. right on the cusp of the spotlight. Because now that you have kids, when it comes to Halloween, the kids want to be blinded by the light in center stage. Well, once they figure out what they are going to be for Halloween, that is. (If you missed my post on that charade, here it is). Here you go friends – some cool mom options for Halloween.
And so you don’t think that I just surf the internet and suggest things for everyone else to wear, I figured I’d try one on for size… Wearing: Old Navy Top (mens small), Hei Hei Jacket from Anthropologie (0ld) but this is similar and on sale), J.Crew Toothpick jeans (old), but these are similar, Joie Dalton Bootie. So which option are you going with? And yes, sexy maid is out of the question as well. Sorry.
