Halloween has always been the source of great excitement for me – from carving pumpkins with my Dad and getting dressed up to go trick-or-treating with my brother and sister, I’ve looked forward to it every year since I was little. Growing up I’d eagerly anticipate our annual trip to Asda to buy decorations and ponder what costume I would wear, stocking up on cherryade and sweets. Halloween parties have been my favourite way to celebrate for as long as I can remember (last year we threw a particularly cool one at our uni house with a live band) and dressing up becomes a little challenge for me. This time around I aimed to recreate Eleven from Stranger Things – you can see how I got on by checking out my Instagram!
I am totally in love with this outfit – tied together by the amazing skirt. It fittingly seems that as the days begin to get shorter my skirt length gets longer, providing a different silhouette for me to work with (which it turns out I really like) and also helping me postpone the switch to tights for as long as possible. It’s great to be back at uni, because I feel like I can let my style run wild as opposed to being stuck in my work uniform at home! The wide range of interesting fashion senses and quirky street outfits has always inspired me, and there’s nowhere that diversity and individuality shows more than the city.
