Before I start a crazy week of Book Fair, being the treat person for both my kids Halloween parties, and my birthday, we had a fun weekend getaway including a costume party. I love, love, love dressing as couples to these parties, and so does my husband. Usually, I start trolling the internet for costume ideas in August. This year, we were a mermaid and pirate (pictured above). We have also been Oktoberfest style and Robin Hood with Maid Marian (also pictured above) in the past. Next year, perhaps we will be a garden gnome and fairy. Below are several ideas for couples costumes I put together on Polyvore if you ever want to try one yourself. Happy early Halloween!
