#GalPalHoliday: Serena From Gossip Girl Halloween Costume

A few weeks ago I heard about #GalPalHoliday link up (hosted by Cathleen, Rachel, and Cristina), and I knew I had to join! The first holiday is Halloween, so I whipped up a costume post! 

For some reason, I have always wanted to wear a uniform. I don't go to private school, so this dream of mine will unfortunately never be fulfilled (except for Halloween!!). However, last week I posted a "life update" saying that I was considering being Serena from Gossip Girl for Halloween, and Katie left me an awesome costume idea going off of the uniform from the show!

All you need for this costume is:
-a white button-up
-a solid or plaid tie
-a solid or plaid skirt
-mid-calf socks
-a dark pair of shoes

I found everything for this costume around my house. I borrowed my mom's button up and shoes, and my dad's tie and socks. Be creative and look around your house- you'll be surprised by what you can find. 





Here's a side by side comparison. I know that they're not exact, but the idea is there!

I hope you guys try this costume out, and let me know if you do!
xoxo,
Alyssa

  2. This is perfect! I went to a Catholic HS so I already have my share of kilts, I could throw this together so easily!
