Vintage nightgowns are one of my biggest guilty pleasures. Pastel colors, sheer layers, lace details... What's not to love? I even wear my favorite ones as daytime dresses! In fact, I was sporting this exact blue nightgown the first time I met my boyfriend's parents. Is that socially acceptable? Hehe. Kidding.
My best trick to wear nightgowns in real life is to pair them with more structured pieces such as biker jackets, blazers and other menswear-inspired pieces. I also like to temporarily morph the gowns into skirts by wearing a button-down shirt on top and making a little knot at the waist. Voilà, instant magic skirt!
Do you sometimes wear pajamas as real-life clothes?
Lately, I've been finding some pretty amazing stuff while thrifting. This sweet blouse is one of my most recent finds and I was super eager to wear it! It has the cutest peter pan collar and some tiny, tiny shoulder pads that add the perfect amount of structure to the soft rayon fabric. Me like. I used to remove all shoulder pads by default, but I have since discovered that garments with small ones often look better when left as-is.
