If you follow illustrator Hannah Alexander’s blog, Sundry Mumsy, you know how utterly and completely adorable her three children are. Every day is dress up day in their household, which makes her posts so cute and so.much.fun.
That’s the reason we’re so happy Hannah decided to illustrate her two youngest dressed up for Halloween. Such a thoughtful idea they’ll be able to cherish for years to come! And today, we’re lucky enough to share it with At Home readers too.

I’ve loved looking at At Home’s beautiful Fall Fashion Stylebook spread this month, but this week, the fashions at the top of my priority list are Halloween costumes!
Halloween has always been my favorite holiday and having children only adds a new and even more exciting dimension to the fun. My mother is a portrait artist, and she once painted my brother, sister and me in our Halloween costumes from the year we were Olive Oyl, Popeye and Swee’ Pea. I always loved seeing that painting hanging on the wall in our home growing up. I’m not sure why. Perhaps it reminded me of the fun we had as kids and of my mother’s unending creativity. For whatever reason, it was special to me. So this is for my kids, two of them anyway. My oldest hasn’t quite decided what she will be. (I’ll add her in later!)
If you have kids, I’m sure your home is full of Halloween excitement and anticipation this week.Â I hope this gets you in the dressing up mood!Â Happy Halloween!
