Halloween is almost here and I really can’t believe it. Time is in fast forward currently and it’s hard to get in the mood while living in a habitual summer (I know, poor us, but we really are so jealous of anyone with seasons!).

I’m feeling super thankful for Halloween as it’s really the only thing getting me into the fall vibe. I love seeing the pumpkins outside the grocery store, all the creepy decorations, tasting every single pumpkin item from Trader Joes (even the pumpkin tortilla chips w/ matching salsa), the comeback of the pumpkin Acai bowl at Sambazon and of course – brainstorming what the hell I’m gonna dress up as this year.

Typically I do some sort of throw back or classic, past years I’ve been Edie Sedgwick (pre-blonde/Andy era), Wendy Adams, classic vampire, etc. This year I want to switch things up and do something semi-cheeky and a bit more current. I have been thinking of tons of different pop culture costumes and I have finally narrowed it down to my top four choices.

Personally, I’m leading towards The Countess in American Horror Story Hotel, mainly because I just want to wear this red dress really bad.

Baddie Winkle is a close runner up though, she only the raddest Grandma around (#squadgoals).
