Welcome to FIXER PUPPER! We're your hosts Chip and Jo, and.. okay, fine, it's just us, Kerry and Henry Bear dressed as everyone's favorite HGTV hosts! When thinking of costumes for Hen and I, a Fixer Upper costume came to mind right away and once Henry was in those overalls, well, it was a done deal.

When I think of Joanne Gaines, I think of a t-shirt, jeans, booties, and her classic green jacket, along with a cup of coffee in hand and positive spirit ready to go. For Henry's Chipupper Gaines look, I thought of those tan coveralls he's been known to wear, along with a classic plaid shirt (though we did try and find a navy tee, as well. Mostly, though, I think about how much they enjoy each other's company, their deep rooted faith, and how adorably they look at each other - check, check, and check! We were all set!
Something I love about this duo is their ability to dive into projects and get after it, as Chip would say. As a non-stop go-getter myself, I really resonate with their message and bold moves. However, I firmly believe in rest and re-fueling, which they clearly demonstrate. In a world where "busy" is glorified, and people are seeking fame instead of seeking purpose, joy, and a full life, I find Chip and Joanna Gaines to be refreshing, inspiring, and blazing a trail I hope to stay on.
If you want to get do this easy DIY Halloween Costume for pairs, here's what you'll need:
Magnolia Farms or Fixer Upper t-shirt: plain navy tee, iron on or stick on letters, OR order one of their great shirts from the Magnolia Shop! (I simply ran out of time for this option due to shipping.)
Jeans: any kind! Wear ones you love. Mine are Calvin Klein, I think Joanna likes Madewell.
Booties: again, check your closet first. Mine are from DSW.
Green Jacket: Banana Republic. Check your closet or friend's closets ;)
To-go Coffee Cup
We got Henry's dog overalls here (be sure to size way up! he is normally a S/M, we got XL).
For a human version of this costume, pair a comfy worn-in tee with your favorite jeans, boots,
a baseball cap featuring the Magnolia logo, OR opt for those tan coveralls. You can also rock the cute
#demoday tee found in the Magnolia shop.
Props: Magnolia magazines, The Magnolia Story, Capitol Gaines (which Henry says he'll let me read after he finishes it).
