Don’t Want to Wear a Halloween Costume? Try Simple Last-Minute Halloween Accessories

I love Halloween as much as the next mom, but I don't like costumes. When it comes to Halloween I want to show my festive side but there's something about dressing up that doesn't really excite me. This year, I plan to play it up with festive accessories. A leopard printed coat is perfectly acceptable—no tail necessary. Or if you're up for it, try a cat ear headband with your everyday jeans and a black top. People will get the idea that you're in the Halloween spirit without going over the top with a full costume. Sometimes, less really is more!
