To be, or not to be: Halloween Costume Dilemmas

October 22, 2013

It’s inevitable. Each year, Halloween comes around just like the year before. I always think about what I want to ‘Be’ for Halloween – and I search through all of the costume sites, only to be disappointed. Every time I look I think about how inappropriate the majority of the costumes are for Women!  I try every year to get a costume that is somewhat appropriately covering my body, and still remains cute and semi-original. This year, I found a great costume at Kohl’s!

It is a skirt, which typically for me is a BIG no-no. but having the leggings and the purple tights on still covers most of me up. I also was assuming I had a long sleeved turquoise shirt, but I didn’t.  The costume is SUPER high quality, I was quite impressed. I was warm but not HOT – and super soft.Screen Shot 2013-10-22 at 3.18.38 PMI love how these costumes can be paired with other costumes to make a theme. I don’t know why, but I am a sucker for themes – and Kohls has a TON of themed costume wear! I tried really hard to convince my youngest to be Mike Wazowski, but he *REALLY* wanted to be a fireman.  Maybe next year… I also super-adore the ‘Art’ costume, and would have preferred that, but I figured I’d be explaining all night who I was.999288_10151934517579269_1252367426_nMy friends and I got together and had a pretty sweet Halloween party with our kids – and they were all pretty impressed with the costume, too. The girls said that they ‘couldn’t talk to me seriously’ while I was wearing it – but we had a fun night anyway.

Definitely check out Kohl’s for some of the higher-quality costumes that you’re looking for this Halloween! I’m happy I did!

Disclosure: I received the Sully costume free of charge in exchange for my opinions on it. All opinions are 100% my own.


  1. Aww I love it! I never even knew Kohl’s had costumes, and I’m having a hard time finding something I like, so I’ll check them out there. Thanks!

  2. cute! love the monsters inc costumes!

  3. Y’all look soo cute! I buy my costumes from thrift stores or yard sales. I’m either going to be a officer from Star Trek: TNG or something with cheetah print.

  4. I love all of your costumes! It’s nice to see adults dressed up as something other than an inappropriate costume these days.

  5. This is too cute! I like how you thought ahead to be covered- it looks so much better than the half naked stuff that embarasses the kids. This is adorable
