Alrighty, it’s been a whole week of PYJAMAS!!! I still am super psyched about this whole trend because it’s just so comfy and I feel like I have a whole new set of pieces to mix into my (busting at the seams) closet! Now, since I talk about and (most likely) overuse kimonos in all my posts, I wanted to steer clear of doing a look with one of those in this week of jammies. I mean, they are definitely part of the trend, but they’re kind of one of those things that I use in a larger sense of this whole loungewear thing that’s going on. So for today, I wanted to use a couple other things besides the pyjama tops that I’ve been wearing in the earlier posts!
The thing about pyjama bottoms, is that the shape is pretty important. I had a hard time thrifting these for that reason. The older styles, and cheaper brands tend to have a decidedly tapered leg, which is just not a great shape for me at all. Now, I do know some girls who can pull this funky shape off like a boss, but I am not one of them. I generally need pants to have a straight shape to the leg or at least a slight flare to them for them to work on me. This is why I went ahead and actually ordered this pyjama set from J Crew, and I’m really glad I did because these pants are exactly what I needed! There are A LOT of things you can do with these pants. I think dressing them up with a blazer and heels would look amazing, but for today, I’m dressing them down, thinking about how I’d run to the grocery store or go shopping in them.
A graphic tee and heeled clogs would be one way that I would wear these pants. They are a GREAT choice for summer because they are lightweight and breathable…so perfect for a day when you don’t feel like shorts or a skirt. Jewelry is key when it comes to this trend as I’ve mentioned before because it makes certain that people know that you are INTENTIONALLY wearing something that looks like pyjamas!
The second piece of clothing I wanted to bust out, is this funky vintage robe I got thrifting. Now, some robes completely double as kimonos and you almost cannot even tell the difference if you wear them like you would a kimono. However, there are some pieces that are obviously robes…they have tighter sleeves and they hang like they are supposed to be worn as a traditional post shower piece of clothing. Sometimes they aren’t really acceptable for wearing outside (like those big fuzzy fluffy things you actually DO wear post shower!), but other times, they are beautiful items of clothing that can work much like a kimono style piece of clothing.
I have a tendency to want to minimize what’s going on on my bottom half when I wear something like a pretty dramatic or very funky robe. That means that I gravitate towards shorts or skinny jeans, because they don’t add bulk when I have something rather bulky on top. I also kept the top simple and form fitting so as not to add unnecessary bulkiness on the top. I love the fur boots with this because, well I love those boots with everything, but they kind of are almost paying homage to slippers! Lots of turquoise and a tassel felt like a good addition to class up this sleepwear item.
It’s just loads of fun you guys. Where is the fun in dressing when you can’t wear stuff “wrong” right? It’s fun to test out what can double for what, and not compromise comfort while doing it!
Hope you’re in your jammies, netflixing, and chillaxing :)
