September is totally, one hundred precent, a perfectly acceptable time to start getting ready for Halloween. Some of us may be a little more into the spooky holiday than others, and ya know what? That’s ok.
Since I was a tiny human, I’ve always loved Halloween. The dressing up, the decorations, the smells in the air. Come on – it’s free candy and pumpkin pie time. Even down here in Florida we get the hint of fall in the sea breeze and a taste of the ever delicious candy apples from the Oktoberfest and Fall Fairs around the area.
I started thinking early this year, with so much inspiration from small shops I get to keep in touch with to amazing accessories from companies who specialize in keeping imagination and play in their products. This is the first of few jam packed lists to help you get you and your family in the Halloween spirit with items and apparel that can be used year round. Just because I can, I’m starting with some rad cat and bat themed goodies you’ll want to hang onto. And don’t you fret, I’ve included links to where you can get each item, because I love you.
If you aren’t already smitten by this little fella’s smile, then get ready to feel one of the softest stuffed animals in all of creation. This sweet bat is made by a wonderfully child friendly company that has it’s eye on making sure their products are soft, safe, and cuddly.
For a while now, I’ve fallen in love with all things Indie Nook. So it was a kick ass coincidence when I was scrolling through their site to find this pretty kitty. This shirt has the ability to be worn with just about anything, comes in grey, black, or pink and available in adult and children’s sizes. Sounds like you need to go get this tee RIGHT MEOW.
(See what I did there?)
Land of Nod has always been our go to for room decor and all things kid. Leave it to them to have the perfect sheet set to ring in the Halloween season. These sheets not only scream hallowed creature perfection, but are versatile enough to last through every month of the year.
If you’ve followed this blog at all, you’ve probably seen my little boy in this exact tee. Bats are always in, be it winter, spring, summer or of course, fall. Bubblegum Forest has an amazingly unique talent for creating apparel for kids (and adults too!) that are not just cute to look at, they’re works of art. You best believe this is a staple in Ronin’s wardrobe and this mama is thinking she needs one too…
If you haven’t seen these amazing masks yet, hold onto your butts. Opposite of Far has been pumping out everything from unicorns and dinosaurs to cats and owls for kids of all ages. We absolutely love our mask – the comfort of the strap, the softness of the felt, and the durability of the make is magical. Heck, they even have an entire Halloween line you can get to here!
Leggings on kids are just too cute. It doesn’t matter boy or girl, infant to youth, they’re a wonderfully comfortable way to dress your little human while still having the style and fun of kid’s clothing. While Whistle & Flute has a myriad of sweet cat items, these leggings are the perfect everyday wearable with just a hint of that October spirit.
If the name of the company doesn’t win you over, then this cutie should. Who doesn’t need a little white gold kitten wrapped around their finger? Adjustable in size and on sale right now, a ring like this can be work anytime of year.
