Albertus Swanpoel for Target Hat and a Halloween Parade

WHITE TANK - Zoe Clothing Co.
GREEN PANTS - GAP Maternity
GRAY JACKET - Old Navy
CUFF - Heavenly Treasures
PURPLE/BROWN FEDORA - Albertus Swanpoel for Target
Monday's Inspiration - Jaime King


Saturday I took Princess Sparkles and Pigtails to a costume parade at a local senior home.  It started out with Sparkles putting on some dress, wings and heels.  She told me, "I don't want to be a mermaid, I want to be a Princess Fairy."  Basically she was wearing her everyday clothes.  I tried to get her to put the mermaid costume she had for Halloween on but it was a battle I wasn't going to win.

Another battle I wasn't going to win was Pigtails wearing the cute goldfish costume my mom, Fair Isle, made for her.  She wasn't having it and I tried really hard but she just lied down and screamed.

  Today's "Inspiration Monday" from Two Birds is Jaime King.  I really want a pair of red maternity jeans though I feel like I shouldn't.  So the only "colorful" maternity jeans I have are these green ones.  I decided to pair it with my adorable "Green Flower" tank from Zoe Clothing Co who also happens to be hosting a generous $50 Giveaway on my blog (so go here and enter now!).  This jacket I got on the Old Navy clearance rack for $11 and I went to Target early on Sunday morning to pick up the Albertus Swanpoel for Target hats.  I got 4!!!  This purple and brown one is my favorite one!
  
Anyway, I'm really excited about Halloween!  It's so much fun seeing all the kids in their costumes and watching them trick or treat.  Although, not really sure which costume Princess Sparkles will choose for the day and if Pigtails will even wear a costume at all!  Either way it'll still be a fun one!

***Don't forget to enter the $50 Giveaway from Zoe Clothing Co!  Only 2 days left!!!

Awww those kids are just too cute! So sorry your little one didn't want to get into the gold fish costume...I loved dressing up for halloween. This was my first year in 5 I didn't but it's ok...

Rebecca said...

Your girls are always adorable, and I like the hat!

Frannie Pantz said...

That hat is adorable! And the goldfish costume that your mom made is so cute! Gotta love Halloween when you have kiddos! I had two ninjas and a butterfly. ;-)

Sigh. You never know what kids will
want to be on THE day. No wonder
we often were last minute creations
on Halloween. Lots of pirates,
gypsies and witches with makeup...
whatever came out of mom's closet.
Now your closet, would be inspiring
Love the outfit and the silhouette
of your new hat!

Kimberly said...

The goldfish is beyond adorable. I love how little kids are about costumes. On the day of Halloween they fight it tooth and nail, but won't take them off the rest of the year. That's how my nephews were, at least.

Patti said...

Your little ones are soooo adorable! And you look great with your hat and fab accessories too. Thanks for participating in Visible Monday!

Cindy Swanson said...

OK...you've totally inspired me to buy a hat! That one looks amazing on you!

I got the hat bug during the Royal Wedding, but I never ended up purchasing one. Gotta do it!

Hope you'll stop by my blog and say hello. It's the first time I've participated in Visible Monday, and the very first time I've EVER done an Outfit of the Day!

Aww the gold fish outfit is so cute- too bad she wasn't having any of it! They both look adorable- I can't wait to have kids to take trick-or-treating (and hopefully get some of their candy!) Love your printed tee and the green pants are great!

Shea said...

Aww, they still look adorable, even if they're not as into it. And you look great too--what an awesome hat!

Oh my goodness girl! I did not know the Swanepoel hats had hit Target already!! I'm so excited! I hope they're not all gone at mine by the time I make it there tomorrow.
You are looking fab in your green maternity jeans girl, and I love that Zoe shirt.
Your little girls are SO SO precious--the goldfish pic is the funniest!

You look so chic. I love the pose of you holding your tummy. I used to always pose like that when pregnant. Did you find out the sex of the baby yet?
The girls look so adorable.
Happy Halloween!

I saw this hat collection at my Target today, and I was so close to picking one up for myself, but I already own a zillion hats,and I just don't wear them enough to justify buying anymore. I need to just make myself be more of a hat person, I think :)
