I'm curious. What is the trick or treating standard near you? We always have trick or treating the Sunday prior to Halloween, meaning we had it this past Sunday. When Halloween is almost a week away it's a bit ridiculous I think. But who am I to have a say in regulations like that? 
For the 5 years we have lived in our house we've never had a trick or treater. I put out pumpkins and turn every light outside and inside the house on with a huge bowl of candy. I can't entice anyone. In fact I've probably repelled them because they think I am weird. Well we finally had two come to the door Sunday! Of course I acted over the top and gave them a huge handful of candy. It's too bad they didn't tell their friends though. Well I guess is always next year!

  1. WOW Your vest is gorgeous and I am a huge fan of stripes on stripes. What brand is your vest? Debbie has funky, cool, fun, bright style and I agree it definitely shows her personality. Great co-host! =)

  2. Love the double stripe combo, babe!
    And we get a few trick or treaters, but only on the day of Halloween. I don't have to buy a tonnnn of candy (which is good, because I would totally scarf all the leftovers!) and get to see a few cute kids in costumes each year. :)

  4. We dont get any trick or treaters either Laura. We live outside of town, so we typically head to another neighborhood for candy. I leave treats on the porch but the neighborhood dogs are our only visitors(: Susan

  8. Oh, looks like you have a new vest. I'll just take the tweed one you have from Target last year. You won't be needing it anymore right? Right.

  11. Love the stripes on stripes!! Trick or treating almost a week ahead is a bit ridiculous! No one has ever come to my house either... It would be fun to pass out candy and see the cute costumes though!

  15. No one comes knocking on my door any day other than halloween itself! (though one year it did get postponed due to a snowstorm, and that is the only time in my life it was changed).

    Love the double stripes, it's such a fun mix!

  20. I have a vest similar to that and I LOVE it. Its nice how you layered it over a shirt with that beautiful mint color. Also, I love your pair of aviators, I so need a better pair... I am borrowing my hubby's right now! lol!

  21. I love that you mixed stripes and stripes. I am a big pattern mixer, but I never thought of doing this. Just wait, the trick-or-treaters will come! We used to be the same way. No one would brave our big driveway, then one Halloween we had a bizillion kids show up!

  29. So vibrant and genius! Love the bold stripes on stripes, you are radiant! I've never had any trick or treaters either, but we do live in the country so thats to be expected, but boy would I love to have some!! We trick or treat on actual Halloween typically and get together with Maddox's cousins since they live in a neighborhood better suited for it. It's so much fun, excited about Friday!

  33. Cute stripe on stripe look. As to Halloween traditions, my neighborhood is bustling with kids, and every year there is a neighborhood wide celebration with outside entertainment, photo booths, candy given out to kids on actual Halloween day. Also we have a ton of people stopping by the house for trick or treating. :) Hope yours was fun. XOXO, Elif
