I’ve always been a friend of wearing your pjs out and about. (See here, here, and here for starters.) My new take on this beloved trend. Vintage NightGown.
Emphasis on the gown.
Vintage nightgowns are a special breed. Most were made to be seen, and sold as sets. From silk numbers that scream elegance to cotton ones that beg to be worn out, vintage nightgowns are simply the dresses our grandmas wore to bed. Now we should wear them out!
(Note: a modern nightgown/dress company that I feel like is very similar is Sleeper)
This is a cotton number, pockets, cap sleeve, lace detail. It hints at the nightgown part, but reads as a charming dress. Perfect with heels, but I’m loving it juxtaposed with sneakers, specifically high tops. Cut the sweetness and be comfy.
Wearing this vintage nightgown, I feel a little mysterious. I got stopped on the street and given so many compliments, it felt like I was keeping a secret. (You know, like I was really in a nightgown and not this dress people thought it was) Perfect for running errands, perfect for nights out, and events. Who knows what I’m hiding in it?
Also, PJ dressing gives me a weird confidence. Like I’m at the grocery store in my pajamas, nothing can phase me confidence. That feeling is highly recommended.
My favorite place to buy vintage nightgowns? Etsy. You can find designer numbers (like Dior! We know I have a thing for Dior) to numbers that look like evening gowns. Wear them however you like, but don’t be afraid to wear them out!
