Using items I had at a home and a quick trip to Goodwill and Target I created an easy and inexpensive Mary Poppins Costume along with her friend Bert.
Jim and I don’t usually dress up for Halloween but we were invited to a costume party so we had to figure something out.
Thanks to a little help from Pinterest I put together this Mary Poppins Costume as well as Bert. Here we are!
I managed to put both of our costumes together with items we already had (Jim’s shirt, pants and shoes) and a few trips to Goodwill and Target.
Mary Poppins Costume
My skirt, blouse, red bag, hat and Jim’s vest came from Goodwill. My hat was originally natural straw but I just grabbed that bottle of spray paint and gave it a couple of coats. The flowers are from the Dollar Store.
I found my Mary Poppins costume shoes at Target as well as my black tights and umbrella. We borrowed Bert’s suspenders and cap from friends. I made my red tie, belt, and Bert’s scarf then we grabbed a broom from the shed and we were pretty much ready to go.
Thanks to my neighbor Katie for taking our picture!
I just have to share what my neighbor came dressed up as to the party we went to – here she is.
Can you guess who she is???

Dressing up as a famous couple has become a fun empty nester tradition for us since we first dressed up as Mary Poppins and Bert. You can see our past year’s costumes here:
