I’ve totally been into the pajamas during the daytime look since the first time I saw it back in like 2014. Wearing loungewear in public yet making it totally appropriate and acceptable is literally the dream. I always say that comfort comes first in my outfits (ok, sometimes I have to make a sacrifice), but obviously staying true to my style is a priority as well. That can make it hard sometimes, but it’s also what makes getting dressed fun for me.
On the day I wore this outfit, I was heading to a meeting in Buckhead. I had these pants I got in the mail and while they are definitely comfortable (hello elastic waistband!), they’re made to be worn out and about; I’d even venture to say they’re work-appropriate. I felt the need to take it down a notch to dress them down a little. I wanted to add a feminine touch, so I was drawn to lace. I remembered the pajama top I got when I was in London and after trying it on, decided it worked. I think going to meetings as a blogger gives you a little more leeway to dress down.
Where I ran into an issue was the shoes. I think the best way to pull off the pj’s in the daytime look (especially with matching silk sets) is to wear them with heels. But that just was not working at all with this look. Since the pants are so wide, I needed something slimming and elongating: a pointed toe. Since I knew I was going to wear this chic backpack, I wanted to stay in that same creamy beige color family.
Speaking of the bag, how gorgeous is it?! I love a good backpack, but I feel like it’s hard to get it right. I want to look like a stylish woman, not a teenager heading into homeroom. I think this bag nailed it and I can’t wait to wear it again.
Have you ever made pajamas work for daytime? How did you style yours?
