3 Halloween Costumes We Love for Kids

3 Halloween Costumes We Love for Kids

Halloween is high on the list of my favorite days of the year! It feels like the beginning of fall here in Austin which is the best season! Also, we shut down the street each year for the evening so it feels like a giant neighborhood block party. While we can't help with the early morning wake up call come Tuesday, we can help with creating cute kids costumes out of their favorite La Paloma pieces! They're so much cozier than the synthetic fibers you find in packaged Halloween costumes and you'll have them for years to come!
