Pajamas in Public

In case you haven’t stepped outside or looked at facebook, it’s cold outside.  Super cold.

So, today, I’m resurrecting an outfit I hadn’t yet blogged about, because there’s nothing like cold weather to make you just want to wear your pajamas all day.
A few weeks ago, I bought myself some pretty pajamas – a t-shirt and pants.  I planned to wear them as pajamas.  But, then when I tried them on, they kinda looked like real clothes, and I thought, I bet I can get away with this!  So, I did.  Or, at least I tried – you’ll have to be the judge.

To make the pants look as little like pajamas as possible, I dressed them up with a blazer, pearls, and heels.  What I didn’t plan on, though, was the pants loosening as the day went on – as cheap cotton tends to do.  The longer I wore them, the baggier they got and the more like PJs they looked.

I knew this was a one-shot deal.  When I washed the bottoms, they pilled and looked even more like pajamas.  But, it was a fun experiment for a day – one that is corroborated in InStyle magazine, I might add.

If you’d like to mimic this trend, I would encourage you to follow the instructions in InStyle’s article and avoid flannel.  Only a couple people called me out, but still; you don’t want to look like you just rolled out of bed – even if you did!

  • Pajamas – Forever21
  • Blazer – H&M
  • Heels – Ross (Nine West, I think?)


  1. You get a thumbs up for trying. Great idea to add classic pieces to make the look potentially more friendly to the public. I have thought about trying this but with silk pj bottoms. People would probably still notice but I figured maybe they wouldn’t say anything since silk is such a divine material.

      Thanks for reading, Sharon, and I agree that silk pj bottoms would probably have been better. That’s what InStyle recommends, too, but I just liked this print so much, I had to try it once. Let me know if you try it and how it goes!
