Boo’d Up

On Tuesday, I was invited to a “babe and a bottle” halloween costume party for Saturday night and it got me thinking. A constant struggle that every college student faces throughout their college career is trying to find multiple halloween costumes, that are at least somewhat original and usually very last minute, to fill the needs of the infamous Halloweekend. And the older you get, the harder it gets. You have to add more days of celebration into the mix by adding time for going to bars, and you have to be ready to have a costume on the spot as Halloween parties will be thrown at you with only a few hours notice. And what puts the cherry on top of these struggles is when you have to coordinate costumes with either a date or a group of friends. So we decided to help you out this spooky season by giving you easy, put together, iconic couples costumes for you and your boo.


If you are looking to make love not war this Halloweekend, channel your inner hippie and take it back to the 60’s with this easy and comfortable look. Grab some groovy patterned pants or shirts, sunglasses, and some flower crowns and spread the love and peace!
