Happy Halloween! Here is some black & orange fashion inspiration, courtesy of Gugguu’s fall 2014 collection. The Finnish line of toddler and baby clothes features everyday basics that are comfortable and practical yet still stylish and unique – bold colors, asymmetrical zippers, and harem-style pants keep the collection fresh. Plus, Gugguu’s clothes are all manufactured close to home in the neighboring Baltic’s, and the pieces are all 100% organic cotton. Check out the brand’s website to view the entire collection.

Have a very happy and safe Halloween! Share ghost stories, cook up some spooky treats, and enjoy the carved pumpkins one last night. And, if tomorrow you are looking for ideas on what to do with the overload of candy in your home, be sure to check out this post from last year.
