Things have been a little quiet around here for a few more days than usual. It's been a busy week and on top of that I was ill too, so I decided to take care of myself instead of forcing some posts. I wanted to take a little second to thank you all for nominating me in the Cosmo Blog Awards again this year, I didn't win but I had a great evening celebrating with other fantastic influencers ( you may have even watched the whole thing on snapchat if you follow me on there).
Today I wanted to focus on a trend that until recently I tried to avoid, but now I love. The trend in question is nightwear as daywear - but specifically pyjama shirts. Yeah, it happened. A few months ago when magazines and bloggers started showcasing this odd and quite bold idea of literally wearing your pyjamas to work I was on the fence to say the least. Some combinations were really bizarre and I didn't like it one bit, however, as the trend evolved and became less 'in your face', I started enjoying it much more.
The loose and less structured fit is right up my street as I love to wear oversized tops with skinny jeans. The major tip seems to be to wear very bold prints - something you wouldn't really wear to bed - I'm quite the opposite though. My nightwear at home is colourful, but as you know by now, out in the real big world I like to keep it simple and dark usually rocking black. With this little number I liked the classic fit and the pinspot detail that is visible but not too loud. The quality is gorgeous - it's a slightly thicker material and it doesn't crease ridiculously easy. It looks far more expensive than what is actually is so I'm very pleased with this purchase to be honest with you. You can wear it tucked in and lose, and from boots to high heels, it's a versatile piece that can be literally taken from day to night easily.
Overall, if the pj shirt trend is a little more understated then it could definitely be something less scary to wear. If you're a little worried that you'll look as if you've rolled out of bed and forgot to dress yourself, then stick to more matte materials rather than silk and go for darker colours. I'd love to know what you think though!
