Just wanted to give all you Mom/Nanny/Babysitters out there a cute idea for Halloween!
It’s super easy to put together and let’s be real we all have magical powers from time to time. Last year I decided to put a spin on my real life career and dress up like Mary Poppins! It was super easy to throw together.
For the costume:
I order the skirt on Amazon for $9.99 and a red bow tie and Sash for $5. I got a white button down shirt for cheap in Target, which I’m sure you can get anywhere you shop. I found an old black leather duffel bag for her tote and filled it with goodies from the dollar store, where I also purchased a teaspoon. (anyone who knows Mary Poppins knows she needs a teaspoon in her bag just in case because, ” Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.” ) I borrowed a candle holder that looked like a lamp for my tote as well. I mean every Mary Poppins needs to pull a lamp out of her bag! Now for the “hard” part, I got an old hat that I didn’t care about and I went to Michaels and bought some flowers and those red berries to glue on the hat. I used a hot glue gun so I would make sure everything would stay. I used very light makeup and put my hair in a low bun so the hat would stay on. Throw a pair of black heels on and your done!!
Super easy to put together. Super cheap and you don’t have to be super crafty to do it.
