Long Dress, Short Jacket

I pretty much wore this dress all weekend long. At home with a sweatshirt over it. Out and about with a cardigan over it. It feels like pajamas to be honest. It also felt strange to change out of this dress into pajamas, almost as strange as it did to go from the couch where I was laying to the bed. Welcome to my weekend.

And then I wore the dress today with my bomber jacket over it. Yes, I washed it. No I don’t care that I’ve worn it for the last three days. Yes, I still wanted to be in bed hence the reason I wore the pajama dress.

Don’t even ask to see the photo with me in my maxi dress and a sweatshirt. What? The silent treatment. Fine, here it is.


Do as I say, not as I dress.

    I love dresses that feel like pjs. People think your all dressed up and put together when really you just super soft and comfy.

  8. Hahaha clothes that are as comfy as pajamas are weekend go-to's for me. I have this weird manrepelling sweatshirt that I wore in a myriad of ways 2 weekends ago. It was perfection.

  36. This is why I love your blog, you're a real person (aaaand I have that poster, so yes… I'm biased towards people with cool posters). The dress looks perfect on you, and I probably would've worn it 3 days in a row without washing it, so you're one better than me! xx

    You look cute even with a sweatshirt on. I used to think maxi dresses or long skirts could only be worn with flats, but I'll try heels now that I've seen how cute the ensemble looks on you.
