2018 Halloween Costumes

Halloween is 26 days away and this is one of the first years where I feel really in the spirit of the holiday. I blame it on Zoella and my bestie Serena for really convincing me to embrace this stuff. But I have plans to go to pumpkin patches, watch copious amounts of Disney Channel Original Halloween films and drink warm fall beverages while under a blanket in front of a fire place. Below are seven Halloween costumes I think you could make out of your closet, or with very little preparation. They come from my favorite pop culture moments. Some are throwbacks, others are new loves {lookin' at you Love Island}. Let me know if you are going to use any of these or what you are going to be for the spookiest of holidays - xoxo darling, Hayden
Love Island has been my latest obsession. I'm combining a one-piece that the ladies often wear with a fanny pack, because they have to have a place for their microphone and sneakers in case there is a challenge. The necklace is meant to be like the microphones they wear.  
If you read this post, you'll know I've been obsessed with the Mamma Mia! costumes for some time now. Below is one of my favorites {that I could never pull off} that Lily James wears on the island — complete with a butterfly necklace and some sandals to complete the look. Get your boho on y'all!  
One of my all time favorite movies from my childhood is The Parent Trap with Lindsey Lohan. I always wanted to go to camp like she did and have the most amazing time. From peanut butter and Oreos to popsicles at the mess hall, it looked like the most amazing time. Below is a little camp outfit that I think the twins could have rocked. Plus, if you like to be comfy on Halloween like I do, you'll love this one.

Instagram is full of influencers, including myself, that all seem to dress the same during the fall. This outfit you might already own if you read any fashion blogs. But it includes that classic flat brimmed hat, a sweater thing-y as I like to call them, riding boots and a big Madewell tote. I love it, and this is another comfy outfit. I would also recommend carrying around the biggest iPhone you can find and maybe a pumpkin to pose with?

Alexis Bledel's outfits in The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants are some of my favorites. And if I had to choose a journey to go on, I think a hot guy in Greece would probably be the way to go. I mean I love Blake but soccer camp? Not for me. Use: Top, Skirt, Sneakers

One of my dad and I's favorite films, Bring it On is the most classic early 2000s film. And if you love to wear athleisure in your every day life, this is the Halloween costume for you! I actually own the skirt from Amazon that I ordered last year for this shoot and it is super comfy. Use: Sports Bra, Skirt, Sneakers
My favorite leading lady for so many reasons, Grace Kelly, embodies style and elegance and everything you could wish to be. I've never purchased anything from ModCloth but my mom loved it and the dress is just too cute. Plus, the color is called Pumpkin and I think that is perfect for the season. Use: Dress, Shoes


  1. Omg I love the influencer outfit!! Too bad it's super similar to what I wear on a daily basis lol

  4. Parent Trap is my favorite suggestion of these! I just might have to recreate one of their looks this year.
