Orange and black today as it was Halloween, haha! I wore orange last year too. We don't really dress up here in Australia, although I did see someone wearing devil horn headband on the bus and my bestie saw a man in lederhosen!

Although we missed out on the Zombie Walk and Fright Night this year, I couldn't resist putting Cooper in his little NYPD outfit that my sister brought him back from the US. Cutest little Halloween costume! :)

Did you get dressed up for Halloween today?

  5. Mica, I love that purple with your top & skirt. Looks so pretty together. What a fabulous subtle way to acknowledge halloween. Looks really good! I showed my mom Cooper's costume. We think it's so cute! HAHAHA I couldn't wait to see what he was going to wear. I didn't dress out this year. Maybe next. :)

    1. Haha, yeah I had to try dress him up in something! You would have made a great costume! I look forward to seeing what you come up with next year :)

  6. Good post, kiss kiss. ❤️ ti aspetto da me per un nuovo post xoxo Donny di

  7. That jacket is such a chic piece and love how you used the nice pop of orange to accent the dark toned combo. Looking great in both outfits! I'm dressing up tonight for a party but still not sure what I'm going to wear yet haha.


  8. wow you have the same Balenciaga bags in so many colours! Is it your favourite style?

    1. Yep, my Balenciaga bags are some of my favourite! :)

  9. The tweed jacket is perfect and I love the color of that bag!

  10. I did dress up! I like your understated outfit with the orange bag, but I love all the pinks and purples in the first outfit.

  11. Your first look is awesome and fun - the high waist skirt with the fun print top!

  12. What a pretty top on the first outfit! And I like your black & orange outfit too.


  13. I'm not too into halloween, but I do like to put chloe into her devil costume for when the trick or treaters come by.

  16. That shirt with the sausage dogs on it is a classic. I love it, and I like how the ASOS skirt is unique too. Lucky you have a job where you get to dress up in nice clothes most of the time. Have a great weekend Mica!

    1. Yep, I'm very lucky to work in a business casual environment that lets me dress pretty much how I want every day! :)

  17. Hello Mica,

    I love how you have added a pop of color with both outfits. Did you post a picture of Cooper with the outfit? Maybe, I just missed it:)

    xoxo, Teodora
