TO – 11/01 – on All Saints’ Day…

Hope that everyone who celebrated Halloween had a really enjoyable time with much fun.

Traditionally, here on the island, Halloween is not celebrated with the “trick or treat”.
Instead on All Saints’ Day (today), that is considered a Holly Holiday, children go from door to door asking for “Bread for God sake” (literal translation), and people give them all kind of things since sweets to money, which are placed inside their cloth bags.
We bought a huge pack of little bonbons but we still have a large amount of them… would I be strong enough not to eat them… ;)

Well, despite being a Holiday it’s also weekend (we lost a holyday), so I chose a very simple and casual look.

flat shoes - local store
dark gray pants - canadian gift from sister
pink belt - Fantastico
navy blue sweater - Zara
pink and blue plaid blouse with bow - H&M (detail)
bracelet - gift from Hubby (Tie Rack)
lipstick - L'Oreal
perfume - Noa from Cacharel

  3. we don't celebrate halloween, too. except for some malls and executive villages (where the rich people live. lol.). All saint's day (nov. 1) and all soul's (nov. 2) day are being celebrated by visiting our loved ones who already died, in the memorial park or cemetery.

    anyway, you look very chic on that outfit. love your pose on the 3rd pic. have a great Sunday. =]
