I am thinking of making a white faux fur collar for this coat as it seems to require something at the neck, but perhaps the right scarf will materialise. I should go raid Danny's scarf stash (shhhh, don't let him hear that). I bought the coat last year, and didn't like it. Pulled it on yesterday and couldn't for the life of me remember why. Just fickle, I guess but I'm glad I kept it.
The coat was off by mid-morning when (as you can see by the badly lit photo) the sun came out in full force.

Staying with the pink theme for a bit, I wore this lace 60's suit for the first time. I'm not really a pink suit sort of woman (Danny thinks it might be generational with the JFK assassination being the first thing that comes to mind when I hear, "Pink suit") so to save it from being hopelessly twee, I accessorised with black. You thought I was going to say, "Brains" didn't you?
I think the pieces will work better as separates, but for the sake of the blog I wanted to wear them together at least once.

The Halloween sign on the postbox had been on our door...until our neighbour put up a sign that reads, "Boo!"
I promptly went out and bought one for our door that reads, "Ekk!" I mean, I had to. Last year we had ONE trick-or-treater. I'm not buying extra candy this year because I don't wish to be stuck with it. I'll buy stickers and pencils and if no one shows up, at least we'll put them to use. I don't need a special day of the year to dress silly-every day is Halloween in my world.
I will however bake a barmbrack, complete with charms as I have done each 31 October for as long as I can remember. I can't believe we're this far along in autumn without snow yet. *Fingers crossed*.
Anyone doing anything special for Halloween?
