So, it was my birthday on Friday, then it was Halloween. This is one holiday I do not celebrate even though it is on my birthday. I do not like the celebration of Ghosts and Spirits and Vampires and since I was not raised in this neck of the woods, you cannot blame me that much...:-). Just to refresh your memory because it's been a while I went this personal; I was born thirty-something years ago in a small city in Africa to a High Court Registrar Dad and a Nursing Practitioner Mum. (Dad is late now but everyone else is alive and well; thank God). We moved to the United States sixteen years ago and found a new home here and now I have started my own family too. Halloween is not a holiday back in Africa where I grew up although I got to know about it pretty much early because I grew up reading a lot of American novels and books. My family were (and are still) staunch Christians so, we did not see any need for the holiday but I'm not saying this to criticize anyone's beliefs or views. I'm just sharing a part of my own views and beliefs so you can understand why I do not talk about the holiday on the blog.
Skirt and peep-toe pumps: Victoriassecret (old)
Anywho, that does not mean that we do not have fun on Halloween; I have celebrated my birthday so many times on this holiday and even though we do not dress up or trick or treat in my home, we still open our doors to any kid that shows up and we treat them to lots of candy. A lot of kids showed up as usual on Friday and we had fun with them. They had such interesting costumes. Also, my daughter in Kindergarten went on a school field trip on thursday and came home with this cute smiling face pumpkin and for the first time in my home, we had a pumpkin by the door on Halloween. Maybe, I'll dress up as an Angel next year...:-); definitely no witch or vampire costume for me...:-). And please, do not suggest the nurse or fairy outfits...lol
So, the cute little pumpkin inspired this outfit along with the fact that I suddenly remembered that I had this skirt in my closet. I love the skirt a lot but the only snag is that it is made of light fabric and does not provide much support in the hip area for the curvy ladies. The quality is however very good. I wore a different color of a more durable fabric here. This mustard color jacket was a perfect match for this skirt today and if I were a real life pumpkin, I would be a cute one...:-).
