Have you ever wondered – How To Dress Like a Mermaid? My daughter is MERMAID OBSESSED! Victoria loves The Little Mermaid. We must play it about 10 times a week at home. We play it so much that when the boys walk in and hear it on, they scream… “Come on, Mom! Again?” I always tell them, “Do you know how many times I’ve watched Indiana Jones, Star Wars and Cars?” Yeah. Plenty. Finding a Mermaid Halloween Costume for her is top of my list!
Mermaid Halloween Costume
Mermaids have now become Victoria’s favorite thing to talk about at home. Are they real? Do they all live under the sea? Are they at the beach we go to? Do they sing? Do they really comb their hair with a fork? ALL THE QUESTIONS, all the time. I personally love it because when I was younger I fell in love with the movie SPLASH. Remember that? So I feel like I’m living out a mermaid fantasy with her, too!
Here’s the thing – finding a Mermaid Halloween Costume isn’t always easy. Yes – I could do the Ariel costume for her, but I also want one for me, too. I’m super excited about being able to share with Victoria some fabulous ideas for mermaid costumes! So – for a fabulous Mermaid Halloween Costume – I’ve decided to start thinking out of the box!
A few weeks ago I started looking for some Mommy and Me matching clothes on Target. They don’t have specific Mommy and Me styles, so I always have to improvise. But then I realized that a Girl’s XL is about the same size as a WOMEN’S small/medium (depending upon what you get). I was on FIRE! I started buying all these different outfits for us to wear this summer… and then I saw these MERMAID OUTFITS and I just knew they were perfect! Talk about grabbing these ASAP and saving as a Mermaid Halloween Costume. I knew she would go CRAZY! I bought them and surprised her with them last week! She went NUTS!
Mermaid Halloween Costume is something that I feel like we will remember forever, too!
I can’t even tell you how cute it was to see her light up like that! I’m all about this Mommy and Me matching, it seems like it’s a HUGE trend right now… but for me, it’s much more than that. It’s about a dream that I had years and years ago. It’s about doing this with my OWN mom when I was a kid. I used to love to dress alike with her, it always made me happy. To see my daughter reacting the same way, it’s just awesome for me.
We even got a little water action in! We have a little pond in our backyard, so I pretended I saw a mermaid. She’s almost 5, so she KNEW I was kidding… but she “entertained” me for a little, too! I mean – come on – how perfect, right?
Fashion is fashion. Style is style. You know I’m obsessed with fashion and style, but mostly I love it because of how it makes you feel inside. Dressing like a mermaid with my girl filled my soul! It was everything and I loved sharing this moment with her. Now she will wear this all the time… I will wear this at home, only! LOL!
