It Girl - Holly Golightly

Leather Jacket: MICHAEL by Michael Kors (similar); Tee: Gift (fun option $15!); 
Boyfriend Jeans: Ann Taylor (similar); Flats: Jessica Simpson (fun option); 
Ring: Kristian Alfonso (similar); 
Nail Color: Essie Fear and Desire/Chanel Black Satin
Yesterday afternoon we participated in McKinley's first annual Trunk-or-Treat at his school which happened to be a first for us as well. He was dressed as Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates and was absolutely adorable! Because it's Halloween, I don't want to go overboard in the orange and black department. I also don't really get to get dressed up anymore. I simply want all the focus on him!

However, I thought it would be fun to go as the "It Girl" Holly Golightly! Not in the LBD, updo with tiny tiara, and cat-eye liner kind of costume. But with elements of being an It Girl. You know leather jacket, raspberry lip, and wearing Holly on your shirt!

The Jacket: Before and After


Don't have a tiny tiara? Just wear something similar on your shoes! I had all but forgotten about these little satin flats. I also forgot how comfortable they are!


 And how cute are my festive nails? They aren't perfect, but I kind of like that they are a little kookie in appearance. Makes perfect sense for Halloween, no?

Oh, it just so happened that Marie Claire ran this article online yesterday. I was already dressed when it appeared in my Facebook newsfeed. Talk about being on the same wave length! What film would inspire your next costume? For me, I'm thinking Penny Lane!
