Monster’s Inc., But Make It Fashion

Hey, everybody! It feels like it’s been forever, doesn’t it? I just know you’ve all been dying to find out what I’ve been up to! Truth be told, I haven’t been doing a whole lot. I’ve had a lot of schoolwork to do, and I haven’t been feeling well lately. But something I pride myself in is being able to pull up in pajamas, still looking somewhat put together. Since my wardrobe is fairly versatile, it’s great for mixing and matching because of the color palettes I tend to veer toward. Today, because of my current state of mind — as well as the changing of the seasons — I’m going to share a comfy but cute look that I’ve fallen in love with recently. As usual, go ahead and scroll down to see our flat lay for this week.

You’re probably thinking, “Woah, that’s a lot of pink.” I know, and that’s just how I like it. Because this ensemble centers around comfort, the fuzz is key and, although it’s simple, this outfit features a couple of staple pieces. First of all, let’s talk about that sweatshirt. I was super nervous when I ordered it from Amazon because it wasn’t from a well-known brand and it was cheap. When it arrived a few months ago, I wore it for probably two days straight because it was so soft and oversized. You’ll notice that I pulled in the double-sock element that I spoke about in this past month’s issue, using some fuzzy pink socks to bring the fluff throughout the outfit as opposed to just being centered in the sweatshirt. In addition to those, I pulled some gray thigh-high socks to match the gray spandex shorts I used to avoid a pretty serious wardrobe malfunction because the sweatshirt isn’t that oversized. I’m sure you can tell I saved the best for last: those slippers.

Quick product review! I saw these slippers last year on Dolls Kill (who could’ve guessed?) and fell in love. I have a pink dinosaur Kigurumi and the only downside to it is that it doesn’t have feet, so these slippers were ideal. While they’re no longer listed on the Dolls Kill website, they’re still available in other places online, and they’re called the Ms Monstrosity Silky Slippers. While it could potentially differ from site to site, on Dolls Kill they retailed for $20. Like I said earlier, I’ve had them for about a year now, and for the wear and tear they’ve received, they’re holding up wonderfully. Now, supposedly these guys are “one size fits most.” Having small feet, I’m on one end of the shoe-size spectrum, and they don’t slip or fall off, but there’s lots of room because of the squishiness and material. They really mold to and hug your feet nicely, and they were a great purchase!

You’ll notice that, for once, I didn’t include any accessories (aside from my locket, but you’ll never see me without it) in the flat lay. Ludicrous, I know. However, because this outfit was centered more around comfort than anything, I wanted to stay true to that. When doing my hair, I decided the put in the pink hair bows to keep my hair back. As for makeup, I kept it dewy, flushed, and light with lots of blush and highlight. For the eyes, I just spread blush on the lid with my finger and then went in with mascara. On the lips I always start with a lip balm, but then I used a lip liner to create a more ombre effect, and then blended it out and added some gloss to make it look a bit less dramatic.

It’s that time again! I want to thank you all for reading, and for putting up with the couple of weeks when I didn’t post. I’m excited to be back, and I think this look is really solid and ideal for winter. Enjoy!
