Halloween really is one of my favourite times of the year – I get all excited about the pumpkins and the decorations and the leaves falling everywhere. Warming soup, cosy blankets and roaring fires with a cup of hot chocolate while watching some of the best classic movies – it’s the beginning of the best parts of the year, the party season.
Party seasons, however, cost a bloody fortune and I’ve never made any secret about the fact that, while I love to splash out every so often, I’m not likely to put Edith in a £75 dress for one day or buy the boys something that just isn’t practical for the rest of the year. I love to make the most of Halloween and I find myself dressing the boys (and Edie) in clothes that are a little bit more funky – like Toby’s skeleton leggings, or Edith’s cat’s ears headband – but stuff that I would use again and again. Do they have a box full of fancy dress if they want to dress up? Sure, but let’s talk Halloween fashion without the fancy dress element. Here are my picks.
- Stella McCartney reversible ghost, glow in the dark t-shirt.
- Rockahula kids glitter cat clips
- Smallable x Oeuf ecru dalmatian hoodie
- Waddler wolf suit (also available in beige)
- Bang bang copenhagen swan dress
- Molo magne skull sweater
- Emile et Ida cat tights
Now while the rational side of me argues that we really shouldn’t be spending this kind of moola on kid’s clothes, there is another part of me that argues that, as adults, we work hard for what we have. I love fashion, but rarely get the chance to indulge myself, so I have a tendency to buy a few higher priced items for the kids as well as shopping at H&M or Primarni… after all, why not?
Hello Harriet, I loved the idea of Halloween fashion. I have one daughter and these are the perfect outfits or something unique for my daughter. It is such a lovely blog. Thanks!
Awww these Halloween outfits are adorable, I dont have kids yet but I love seeing my nieces and nephews with cute Halloween outfits even if they dont wear a costume 🙂
Great ideas I think my girls would both love number 3 especially after seeing the movie 😉
The swan dress is fab. Love it. Love the others too.
As a crazy cat lady, so definitely need those socks, they are divine x
Aww these are super cute I’d wear the hair clips myself haha xx
I love kids halloween outfits, I love how classy and every day these pieces look too!!
Love the Smallable kids hoodie! There’s some great picks in H&M kids at the moment too! Cool selection
Number four is my favourite as it is so cute!!
These are all so cute. I really like the onesie.
Aww, the dalmation hoodie would be super cute. It’s definitely nice to have a few things the kids can wear even when it’s not Halloween.
I am loving the Copenhagen swan dress, I think it is so cute. Such lovely pics you’ve shared here.
Awww, everything looks so cute! I’m going to share this with my friend who has kids.
Kids clothing for halloween, and pretty much everything, is so much cooler than adults clothing x
I agree, spending £75 on something that is only going to be worn once is ridiculous, I much prefer the incorporation of Halloween elements like you have done !
Aww how cute are some of those outfits, I love the now you see me top! x
I love all of these but my favourite is the swan dress it is gorgeous x
