Halloween will always hold a special place in my year. It's long been the marker for when winter is really, officially here for me and I used to, somehow manage to hold off buying a winter coat until after Halloween - something that I've not been able to pride myself on for a long while now.
I love how you can totally reinvent yourself for the evening, embracing your new favourite villain (Harley Quinn tutorials have been flashing up on my social feeds all week long), revisit your trusty skeleton look or simply lift your everyday work-wear look with a spooky statement shoe. There's something for everyone.
If you're looking for something less ostentatious than a top-to-toe Heidi Klum Halloween costume then something like this cute 'I'm a cat' jumper from Wildfox, or a simple spooky tee from Toppers will help you show your more committed friends that you're making an effort, whilst also ensuring that you don't feel too awkward come midday in the pub.
Last year I painted all my friends faces and celebrated in Dublin's Temple Bar which was one of my favourite nights ever, ever. This year I'm still undecided on what I'll be but I'll be celebrating with some of my oldest and dearest friends so it's sure to be a great evening.
Do let me know what you're dressing up and heading out in this weekend below!
