Sade Halloween Costume_2

I’m usually a super last-minute planner when it comes to just about everything.

H&M All For Kids Halloween Collection

Halloween is quickly approaching and while I’m not usually one for playing dress up, I couldn’t resist sharing these adorable pictures of H&M’s All for Children Collection of Halloween costumes for kids! The looks are all inspired by an 18th century masquerade ball so you can dress your kiddo as a plundering pirate, a hooded batman, a mini Marie Antoinette, a little mermaid and more! And the bonus? 25% of the proceeds from the sale of this collection benefits UNICEF. I’m a little jealous that the collection is just for the kids! If H&M made costumes for adults this …
