Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. For the last several years, I have been incorporating Birkenstocks into my Halloween costume. I do this for two reasons, Birks are cute and they keep my feet properly supported when I take the kiddos trick-or-treating.
This year for Halloween, my kids wanted me to wear my yellow Birki clogs, that I purchased from Sandy's Birkenstock Boutique. I initially purchased them to wear to wet, muddy, and gnarly soccer fields. But, the moment they arrived from Australia, the kids suggested that I wear them on Halloween and dress as a duck.
I even went as far as purchasing a Donald Duck Halloween costume (Daisy was sold out). I thought it would be hilarious. The yellow Birkis were the perfect accessory for the Donald Duck costume. Unfortunately, the outfit did not breathe well and I overheated just trying it on.
Since October weather in the Bay Area tends to be really hot, I sent back the Donald Duck costume and opted for something a little more elegant.
I just switched animal themes. I went from a duck to a zebra outfit. My Big Buckle, Lion King themed, exquisite Arizonas, from Bloomingdales, were fun to wear and brought a little class to the festivities.
I don't know what was more exciting for me, wearing the awesome Arizonas or the zebra striped face paint, to pull the outfit together. If I had to choose, I think the zebra stripes were more fun, since it made the kids the laugh and embarrassed them at the same time! #winning
