Paisley Print Kimono and Baby Poncho

This is how I usually dress whenever Zaden and I go out and run errands in the afternoon, a little more casual and laid back. As much as I love dressing up in skirts and dresses it's nice to change things up every now and again. This kimono from Lulu*s is seriously so comfortable and so me. The kimono really made this rather plain and simple outfit stand out. There's only 3 left in stock online so if you are debating purchasing it I would run over and snatch one before they are all gone (;

On another note, I can't believe Halloween is tomorrow. This time last year I was 36 weeks pregnant and preparing to dress as a hobbit. I feel like Halloween kind of snuck up on us this year and I didn't prepare any costumes for Daryl and I. We might do something last minute but who knows, this Halloween is more about Zaden and dressing him up. My friend Dani bought him this adorable monster costume at Carter's last year and it will keep him nice and warm while we go trick-or-treating.

What are your plans for tomorrow?
