For Halloween, Jennifer Garner favors silly over sensual.
“When it comes to Halloween costumes, go funny over sexy. Why would you dress like a flirty nurse when you could be a mailbox?” she told students at Denison University in a May commencement address.
Well, the actress is practicing what she preached. In an Instagram post from Wednesday night, she dressed as an actual U.S. Postal Service mailbox, with letters sticking out of the slot.
The funny costume came complete with knee-high red and white socks and rainbow Vans slip-on sneakers (available at Journeys.com for $50).
Before posting the silly Instagram, Garner was spotted out and about in Los Angeles in a simple athleisure look. She wore a gray crewneck sweatshirt and navy leggings. The sporty look came complete with one of her favorite shoe styles: Asics’ Gel-Kayano 24.
The shoe has a stretch mesh upper, gel cushioning at the rear and forefoot, and an exoskeleton heel counter designed to give the wearer extra stability. Fans hoping to get a pair are out of luck, however, because the silhouette has been discontinued.
Typically, Garner can be found in more casual styles that accommodate her mom-on-the go lifestyle. Among the “13 Going on 30” star’s favorite sneaker brands are Allbirds, Newton and Prada.
