An Easy Mom-Friendly Halloween Costume Idea

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, but I hate how hard it is to find a suitable costume once you’re a mom. Everything seems to be too short, too tight, and completely inappropriate for trick or treating with a seven year old or chaperoning a school Halloween party.

When I was looking for vitamins at, I happened to stumble across this adorable Minnie Mouse hoodie hat. I love the idea of the hat paired with a simple red shirt and black pants.

It’s festive, but frees you from the worry of accidentally flashing your underwear to a room full of elementary school kids. And, if you’re lucky enough to be invited to an adults-only costume party, you could easily pair it with a red and black dress for a slightly sexier look.

If you want to pick up a treat for yourself when you’re ordering the hat, also sells  OPI’s The Vintage Minnie Mouse Collection Nail Lacquer. These fun, flirty colors would be the perfect finishing touch for your Minnie Mouse costume. Nothin’ Mousie ’bout It is my favorite shade from this collection, because I like the heart shaped glitter pieces. offers free shipping on orders of $25 or more. Whenever I’ve ordered from them in the past, I’ve been amazed by how quickly my item arrives. You can also earn 5% back with dollars, which is a great way to save money if you use the site to purchase multiple items for your household.

Do you dress up to celebrate Halloween with your kids? If so, what creative “mom-friendly” costume ideas do you have?
