Why I Love Halloween

Halloween is on the horizon and my movie choice is starting to reflect it. Halloweentown, Hocus Pocus, Sixth Sense, the best. As I’m sure many of you would agree, I grew up watching Hocus Pocus. I just simply adore it. I love the movie itself, but I think even more than that I love what it makes me remember. Around this time of year it brings back sweet memories of trick-or-treating, going to pumpkin patches, playing games at the Starkville Academy fall festival, winding my way through a corn maze in Columbus or enjoying a bonfire in a country field with friends. It even brings me back to the first haunted house I ever went to. My dad took my baby bro, Wyatt, and me to the annual Delta Chi fraternity haunted house at Mississippi State. We thought it was the most brilliantly horrifying thing we had ever experienced and we begged our dad to let us go back through. Don’t tell Wyatt I told you this, but we were so scared that we slept in the same room that night…and we were way too old to do so!

That’s why I like Halloween, because it reminds me of good times with the people I love.

Oh and the easily-accessible candy is also a plus.


Hocus Pocus Tee

Needless to say, when I saw this Hocus Pocus squad tee from Deep South Pout, I caved and bought two immediately. I sent one to my sister, Avery, and kept one for myself because…look at it! Do you think it is acceptable to wear it year ‘round? Don’t judge me when I do.

While Hocus Pocus is my jam, there are SO MANY fun graphic tees that come out around this time of year. You can shop all of the best DSP options here. I especially love the Ghost tee and the Boo jersey tee. I appreciate that their tees are Halloween themed without being cheesy. Not to mention they are super soft. Like, wear it all day and then sleep in it, soft. They are so FUN and can easily be dressed up to wear around town or styled to wear to a costume party. Win, win. The graphic tee line is one of my favorite parts about Deep South Pout because they come out with cute ones for every occasion…now I am already thinking about what they’ll release for Christmas…someone slow my roll please.

My tee is a medium, and I am 5’2, for reference!


Outfit Details

Tee | Flannel | Jeans | Sneakers | Bracelets | Watch Band

This outfit was so beyond comfortable. I felt casual and relaxed while my friend Kaitlin and I were out and about! I loved having the flannel to throw on when the sun went down and I think the colors compliment the tee really well. Any flannel would look cute with this tee and it basically screams fall. The necklace is something that I made myself, so I am sorry I don’t have a link for you! Y’all know these sneakers are my FAVORITE and you will probably get sick of seeing them this fall. You’ve been warned! My exact sneaks are linked above but here are some similar options at different price points:
