The travel wardrobe for this week is simply some Halloween fun, since I doubt that very many women base their clothing choices on a color palette of orange, black, and white (or a theme of ghosts, spiders, and bats!). Actually, if you already own black and white pieces as your basic neutrals, you may want to consider adding one or two items in a preferred orange hue. Halloween associations aside, these three colors really do work well together.
I have always thought that it would be fascinating to attend a Halloween weekend classic film festival featuring really good and not too gory horror movies from the early to mid-twentieth century (and even if they are not all good movies, at least the films from this period had very few really violent scenes). Today's wardrobe would be perfect for attending such an event. It suits the mood I am envisioning, which is mostly fun and does not take things too seriously -- no doom and gloom weekend for me (enough with the zombie apocalypse scenarios already!).
Here is the outfit for traveling to such a festival:
|Clockwise from top left: Land's End Women's Supima Turtleneck in Jet Black; Catalog Favorites Embroidered Halloween Cardigan; Novica Handcrafted Andean Silver and Obsidian Spider Bracelet; Kate Spade New York Cobble Hill Mini Minka Crossbody Bag in Orange; Cole Haan Pinch Campus Penny Loafers in Flame; J. Crew Pixie Pant in Black.|
Should you be uncomfortable wearing such a "Halloweenish" cardigan while traveling, wear the black one shown below as part of the packed wardrobe, and save the one above for use once you arrive at your destination.
And now for the rest of the apparel to pack:
|Clockwise from top left: Bloomingdale's Minnie Rose Cashmere Fringe Shawl in Black; Avalaya Multistrand Orange/Metallic Silver Glass Bead Long Necklace; Land's End Women's Long Sleeve V-Neck Cardigan in Black; Jet Halloween Ghosts & Ghouls All Over Women's T-Shirt; Land's End Relaxed Supima V-Neck Long Sleeve T-Shirt in Dark Ginger Spice; Land's End Women's Elbow Sleeve Rib Mock Sweater in Dark Ginger Spice; Trotters Paulina Pumps in Black Lace Embossed Leather; Land's End Women's 3/4 Sleeve Merino Sweater Dress in Black; BCBGMAXAZRIA Studded Hedgehog Wristlet in Black; Center: Rockland 19" Spinner Carry On in Orange.|
If you prefer a more fun and casual look, substitute this simple and inexpensive Halloween dress for the black one above:

I hope you have a wickedly wonderful weekend, whether a horror film festival is on your agenda or not. Now excuse me while I go watch Bela Lugosi famously chew the scenery as Bram Stoker's iconic vampire in the classic movie "Dracula" (1931). He really did manage to sink his teeth into his most famous role, don't you think?
