When you open the weather app on your phone and this is what is says – how do you dress?!
Here’s what I try to do:
Last year I found this winter white skirt at the Dillard’s outlet. I love the versatility it gives me! Here are two ways I’ve found to wear it. The one on the right is another idea of layering.
Now, for a whole different kind of outfit… Brace yourself!
With Trick or Treat coming up, maybe you’re looking for a simple DIY costume? Let me show you the funny ones my husband and I did last Wednesday for our church’s Trunk or Treat. I was a Rain Cloud, he was a Nerd. Oh, did he nail it or what? Yikes!
Along with my rain cloud hat, the picture below will show you that I also wore a black top and pants, with rain boots to complete the outfit.
I went to the Dollar Tree and bought
- a child’s cowboy hat
- four bags of cotton balls
- Blue foam squares
- Blue ribbon
- Gray paint
- You’ll also need a glue gun, which I already had.
Take the cotton balls and kind of pull them out to fluff them up a bit, then begin gluing them to the hat to create the cloud. Cover the hat, using more than one layer. This takes a while, just be patient.
Then cut rain drop shapes from the foam, I did about 20. Glue two together with the ribbon in-between. Attach the ribbons to the hat. I tried to stick it up on that hat, between the cotton balls so it would stick a little better. I dabbed a little bit of acrylic gray paint on the white cotton balls. You could also use gray spray paint to add a touch to your cloud.
That’s it! This costume cost me under $10!
Do you ever dress up for Halloween? It was fun to “join the party” and have fun with the kids at church!
What are you wearing during these cool/warm fall days?
Stay refreshed by going to a Bible preaching church this weekend!
