Best Halloween Costume Idea: Mary Poppins and Bert



Halloween will be here before we know it! My boyfriend and I rotate every year as to what our Halloween characters are going to be. After a quick Pinterest search, I stumbled upon one of Lauren Conrad’s Halloween costumes. One year, she dressed up as Mary Poppins and I was immediately inspired. This couples costume is so much fun to put together and is super affordable.

I started with a chiffon top (the one I am wearing is sold out but I found a similar one here). I made sure to look for one that had some lace to give a European look. If you cannot find one exactly like mine, a plain collared shirt works just as well. I then paired the top with a solid black skater skirt (I found one that you can purchase and it under $20 here). I also purchased black sweater tights for a more sophisticated look. Also because of the fact that I am always cold. 😩 I used an old pair of booties for my shoes which paired flawlessly with my tights.

Finding the right hat was a bit of a hassle but I was able to find the perfect one on Amazon. Mary Poppins has flowers and what looks like cranberries on her hat. After a quick visit to my local arts and crafts store, I found the right items for Mary’s hat. Since she has flowers and what looks like berries in her hat, I had to do some digging at the store. The cranberries that I used for my hat were in the Christmas decoration section. The hat has a ribbons around it so all you have to do is tuck in the flowers and cranberries into the hat with little to no hassle. I also purchased a red bow tie for this look form Amazon too. I was able to find the parrot umbrella online on the Disney Store website last year (I purchased it during last September). I was able to find same umbrella on Ebay!  I purchased the kids umbrella size because it was cheaper. 🙈



Bert’s look is super simple to put together. He used a pair of dress pants and dress shoes for his costume from his closet. He used a solid grey long sleeve shirt and a grey vest. Don’t worry if the shirt and vest are not the same shade of grey. Patrick’s shirt and vest were not the same shade but still paired well together! There are a few items that Patrick had to purchase. The chimney broom was also an item that we found on Amazon. He also had to take a shopping trip to find his hat and his scarf. For his gloves, Patrick bought a cheap pair of gloves from Kohls and cut off the finger tips from the gloves. All there that’s left to do is throw some grey eyeshadow all over your face and the look is complete!
