Adorable Hall & Oates Costume

Our 4-year-old Elsa has always loved Hall & Oates, and when she asked to attend their concert this past summer, we were happy to oblige.

We’ve had a lot of fun with unique costumes — Team Zissou member, Rosie the Riveter – since she’s not quite at the age to choose … Read more
