Halloween Costume Surprise

Each year, my friend Jenn from highschool and her boyfriend Matt have a pretty awesome Halloween Party. This year I was off work, and I had a costume!

It took a few trips to find an outfit…mostly because I wanted to get the best deal 🙂


Did anyone guess the costume?!?! Well this year, I was Mary Poppins 🙂


Hat: Walmart $6

Flowers: Walmart $0.97 x2

White shirt: Walmart $15 (and can be worn again!)

Coat: previously owned

Bow tie: Kohls, but you could make it with a piece of red ribbon and a hot glue gun

Skirt: borrowed from my sister in law (along with the umbrella)

Tights and boots: previously owned by

Spoonful of sugar: Old allegra bottle, piece of white paper and a permanent marker. and a spoon from home

Mary Poppins really was an easy costume to get together. And only about 23 bucks! Can’t beat that

It was also great to get together with girls that I have known for over ten years! Crazy to think we graduated in 2003!

Question for you:
Will you dress up for Halloween?

What is your favorite costume you dressed up as a kiddo?
