Stay in Your Pajamas!

It's Monday. And who really feels liks getting dressed for work after a fun but busy weekend? I say we all just head to the office in our pj's.

Pajama dressing was all over the spring runways last September but it's only been recently that I have started to view this trend as wearable, especially in the workplace. PJ's feel soft and cozy but there is serious potential to look like one has just rolled out of bed.

The key to introducing this look to your coworkers: Pair your jammies with tailored pieces. A silky pajama-inspired blouse looks chic with tailored pants, a structured bag and sophisticated stems. Printed pj pants give you lots of room to move but need a tailored jacket and substantial heels to keep them from bedtime territory. 

Remember too that any silk top plus any silk pants veers dangerously close to pajama suit land. If you are nervous about looking too disheveled, wear your one silk piece with a cotton or a cotton blend mate. Your hair and make-up should be polished and ladylike, especially if you are trying this look at work. (No disheveled buns or smokey eyes or you'll wander into walk of shame territory!) Great accessories keep you looking pulled together instead of pulled from under the covers! 

Please let me know if you try this look or have worked it already. I'm itching to get my hands on all of these pieces but especially the Pim + Larkin top

Make your workweek more bearable by wearing pieces you can relax in yet still be productive!
