Kawaii casual

Is the title of this blog post completely contradictive? When I hear or see the word kawaii, I think of erratic and loud, over the top and bright - not casual. But if we’re going for the literally sense, I guess cute casual is fine.

I’m a casual dresser as in, I’m rarely in anything super smart. I dabbled in blazers at the beginning of this year but that was the extent, a dabble. I kinda low key panic when theres a formal event I’ve been invited to, I think I have 2 super dressy dresses for such occasions that I’ve had since my early 20s - I just can’t to the smart super dressed up thing, I feel silly. Even the shoes that I own are all casual, not a pair of heels in site, the closest thing to a dressy shoe is a pair of DM’s or my creepers. I just don’t like heels.

But the day that these pictures were shot, I just wanted something low key and casual, well, low key and casual for me. A hoodie and a pair of jeans. But even when I’m doing the casual thing, it’s still got to be fun. This outfit was actually what made me want to start incorporating more Harajuku style elements into my outfits. I fell like I had fallen straight out of an anime so I wanted to re-wear it and properly debut it on my blog instead of a quick snap that I put on my Instagram. 

I remember seeing these pants on the DollsKill site and fell completely in love with them but I just couldn’t justify the price AND I didn’t want to risk getting something from overseas for them to then not fit. Guess which idiot of sucked in by 20% off thought a medium would fit, paid customs on top of that for them to be too small. Yes that’s correct it was me. Apparently, you have to be teeny tiny to be able to fit into anything off the DollsKill site. Did that stop me ordering more from the Kawaii collection after this? No it did not. I am an idiot.

So, after the massive palaver with this pants I want to get as much wear out of them as possible. With the pants being a large, they’re just a little smidge too big for me so I have to belt them up. They’re reminsant of the starts of Shinjuku, I think that’s why I feel in love with them. Plus I have nothing at all like these in my wardrobe. 

After a good old wardrobe cull I have really stream lined what I have a cultivated the kawaii wardrobe I’ve always wanted, it’s challenging me everytime I open my wardrobe doors to pick something out, of how to wear it in a new way - good job I like a challenge.
