2020 Spooky & Cozy Halloween Sleepwear Picks

We’ve made it to October so you know what that means, spooky season is officially upon us!When it comes to holiday loungewear and/or pajamas I’ve noticed that it is more popular to buy specifically for the winter holidays like Christmas. Yet as most of us are spending more time at home and traditional Halloween festivities are not really an option, I figured that this may be the year that we look for more cozy spooky-wear to wear at home. So I searched the internet for some and compiled this list for anyone looking for something cute, cozy and spooky to wear while watching their favorite Halloween films on tv for the  31 Nights of Halloween. I also made sure to only include items less than $40 on this list.  Happy shopping!

Old Navy

While not plus these unisex designs from Old Navy should still fit up to a size 3X as mens sizes tend to run much bigger compared to women’s. I particularly like the bat design in the middle and can totally see myself wearing that for a zoom call or Netflix Watch Party with my friends because who doesn’t like a good pun? Hahaha.

Chic Pink, & Black With a Hint of Gold

Spring has finally sprung and that means sun, flowers, pastels, and some light layering, well at least it does for me. This year I didn’t get a chance to have some spring fun with my Easter outfit as I was working on some projects last weekend so I figured I should try to bring it to work instead. I’ll admit that until this point I have only had experience working in places with a rigid traditional work dress code so I feel very fortunate to currently work for a company that is a safe space for trying new styles. Ever since I bought this silky pale pink with black polka-dots blouse when I started college nine years ago it has been my go-to spring  work piece that I would normally pair with a blazer and pencil skirt so I decided to give this traditional work outfit a bit of a casual, cute remix.

Making Straight Sizes Werk

20170116_144945-2

Shopping in general can be a very frustrating and draining experience, even more so when you attempt to do so in the straight sizes, however it doesn’t have to be. I think the key to shopping the straight size section is really not getting too focused on size. What I mean is, if you find something you like, try it on. If it fits, go for it and make it werk! But if it doesn’t fit, it really isn’t the end of the world, after all that is where the fun begins. When I find something I really like in the straight sizes that doesn’t fit I start to look into how I can recreate it. Sometimes that means getting creative with separates to recreate a dress or focusing my shopping efforts to find something very similar in retailers that carry my size. And I should note that I do the same thing for plus size pieces that I can’t afford. In fact, I have found that this shopping tactic helps keep my spending in check as I only spend what funds I have on something specific rather than being solely driven by impulse, which is not to say that doesn’t happen; as was the case with this statement top.

Spotted Blossoms

This past week I took advantage of the mild temps to finally break out this LC Lauren Conrad knit dress I had hanging untouched in my closet since this last winter. I typically do most of my shopping out of season as that is when the lowest prices can be found. Sure you risk the chance on missing out on pieces you want but you also can stumble upon some unexpected surprises. This dress was no different, being a straight size cut and at 60% off its originally $50 price tag.20160425_19433820160425_194936
