Easy DIY Halloween Costume: The Bachelorette.

      Happy Halloween! I am so excited to be sharing all about one of the costumes that I wore for this year's festivities. Last year, I only dressed up for a party at my internship, and didn't really go out or celebrate other then that. Since I had such a mellow year last year, I knew that I wanted to go all out for my senior year of college Halloween!! I started planning out this costume around this time last year, and I'm so happy with how it turned out!


      I'm the Bachelorette! Would you accept my rose...?

Dress: H&M {similar here!} // Shoes: Nine West // Earrings: {old} // Lips: Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien

      I have been a fan of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette for quite a few years now. I wasn't able to watch the most recent season this summer due to my travels abroad (and the fact that I worked every Monday night after I came home), but in the past I've always enjoyed keeping up with the show. Fun fact: former Bachelorette Emily Maynard lives here in Charlotte, and actually met her new husband not on the show, but at the church that I go to here!! How cute is that.

      This costume was so easy to create! I've had this gorgeous sequin H&M dress for awhile (Update: the dress is back in stock for Fall 2016!), so I was excited to have an occasion to wear it again. The only thing that I had to buy for this costume was a dozen roses, and then I just printed out a logo and image from the show and super glued it onto a name-tag pin. This is a flirty, fun, and no maintenance costume for any of my fellow single ladies to put together! 

      Hope that all of you are having a wonderful Halloween weekend so far! I had a lot of fun yesterday wearing this costume for the annual party at my internship, and also to go out with a couple sorority sisters last night. Tonight is actual Halloween and round two for us! I don't go out very often so this is a big weekend for me.

       I'm actually more excited about what I'm wearing tonight than I even was about my Bachelorette costume.... in a Midweek Ramblings + Recent Purchases post a couple of weeks ago, I shared that I purchased something very similar to this for my costume. That was my only hint!! I'll be sharing on Instagram tonight though what my second costume is, so be sure that you're following me @miss_alk if you aren't yet! 

      Here is the dress that I wore for this costume, and some other dresses that I think would be perfect for any Bachelorette:

  1. This is so cute Annaliese! I think you definitely should be the next Bachelorette! My hairstylist used to cut Emily Maynard's hair, which I thought was way too cool!


  2. I LOVE this costume idea. So pretty & classy (unlike so many other costume options!)

    xoox, SS

  3. Que bonito me ha encantado.A pesar de que se trata de una de las noches más terroríficas del año, no necesariamente tiene que ser así, o si...Espero que celebres la noche ‘de los muertos’ y que, además, con este post entres con buen pie en el mes de noviembre, gracias a cualquiera de las propuestas de . ¡Comenzamos! ����👻
