I ALMOST MISSED IT THIS YEAR! OUR FAVORITE TRADITION TO DO TOGETHER.
SHE WANTED TO BE A UNICORN SO BADLY SO WHO I AM TO SAY NO?!?
ALTHOUGH, LET’S BE HONEST…I WASN’T TOO EXCITED ABOUT THE WHOLE UNICORN THING.
I REALLY WASN’T SURE IF WE COULD PULL IT OFF, YA KNOW…THE “NON-CHEESY” UNICORN LOOK BUT I REALLY THINK WE DID!
THROW ON A LISA FRANK VIBE AND YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG! I REALLY DIDN’T WANT TO STRESS TOO MUCH ABOUT THE OUTFITS, GRANTED IT WAS 20 DEGREES OUTSIDE SO I NEEDED TO TAKE THAT INTO ACCOUNT. I GRABBED SOME “UNICORN THINGS” FROM A HALLOWEEN STORE AND TOTALLY SCORED REAGAN’S SHORTS AND JACKET FROM TARGET. DONE AND DONE.
HALLOWEEN CITY: LEOTARD, HAND WARMERS, HORNS, FISH NETS, FUR LEGGINGS.
TARGET: REAGAN’S JACKET AND SHORTS, MY VELVET BOOTS
AMERICAN EAGLE: JEANS
The older I get the more hesitant I am to dye my hair, dress up, and do a full blown photoshoot with my baby girl. But why?
I stood in front of the mirror after dying my hair and thought to myself, “At what age am I going to be too old for this?”
Honestly, I hope never.
Since when do we have to be 9 years old to enjoy being a mystical creature or dressing up or dying our hair? We live life under so many heavy hesitations because of fear from outside sources. I wonder what life would feel like if we simply leaned in and stopped caring. If we dressed up like unicorns and frolicked in fields. If we sang songs at the tops of our lungs and fought with our unicorn horns.
If we just didn’t care.
I know I am leaning in more because here’s the things…I don’t fight for joy and happiness just so I can please society with my mediocre way of living.
If I am going to fight, good hell, I am going to live the way I want to!
So, from one unicorn to another,
I hope you know that you deserve to live like the magical unicorn that you are.
Light and Love,
This is seriously one of my favorite traditions. Please please go see our previous get ups!
