I love Halloween because I love candy and dressing up. It has been one of my favorite holidays since I was a kid, so of course I have a few Halloween-themed outfits planned. Today’s outfit incorporates an oft-maligned Halloween candy…candy corn.
It seems everyone hates candy corn, but I actually like it! I also have a sweet (no pun intended) memory involving it. When Ross and I first started getting to know each other in college, I asked him to hang out with me on Halloween. We didn’t have any parties to go to (we didn’t drink at the time, so no wild campus parties for us) so we went to dinner and then bought some Halloween candy at the local CVS. I got a bag of candy corn and instead of being grossed out by it, he ate it with me. I remember the clear autumn night sky, with a bit of the typical chilly weather that comes with Halloween on the East Coast. Despite the cold, I felt really warm with this cool new guy I was seeing. (Ok, enough of the cheesiness).
Anyway, when I saw this candy corn sweater on ModCloth I had to get it. It’s a more minimal novetly print, which i like, since some novelty prints can be very busy. As I was editing the photos from this outfit shoot, I thought of a lyric from “I Want Candy” that fit perfectly for this post.
“I like candy when it’s wrapped in a sweater…”
Amusingly enough, I took these photos on a day that was 80-something degrees in Los Angeles, although you would never suspect that just by looking. I’m hoping the weather cools down soon so that it actually feels like fall, so I can get more into the Halloween spirit! I’ll be sure to buy some candy corn to put in the candy jar. Do you have a favorite Halloween candy?
