If pop culture is more your Halloween style, today's costume is for you. Today I'm bringing you NBC's sweetheart, Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation. She's your favorite Pawnee Councilwoman, and she's also a snappy dresser. Leslie frequently wears blazers, jeans, and sneakers, and generally sticks to a patriotic color scheme.

Bonus additions: Councilwoman pin, Pawnee Goddesses vest, and a cutie dressed as Ben Wyatt.

  1. Adorable! I love this Closet Costume series!

  2. I'm loving these. Leslie is my girl!

  3. So cute. I was teased for being a lot like her by people who know me well, which is sort of a compliment and sort of not. She can be outrageously idealistic to the point of insanity--- and I'm sorta right there with her. We also have huge fires under our butts... But I accepted this comparison more once I realized how similar Ben Wyatt and my boyfriend are.

  4. I freaking love this!! Great backdrop!

  5. I LOVE THIS!!!! I'm a huge Parks and Rec fan, and I have been told on more than one occasion that I remind people of Leslie Knope. If only I had the beautiful blonde hair you have, then I'd be Leslie in a hot minute!! ;)
