Tourist In Pajamas

I have been dressing a little like a tourist lately, due to hurting my knee - I figured it would be more helpful to the healing process to wear sneakers instead of high heels. Crazy thought! Didn’t really mind them with this outfit, though. While walking around the park prior to taking these pictures, an old man ran up to me to tell me he loved my outfit, that it reminded him of ‘children’s pajamas’. So……I look totally young and stuff!!! *Wears this every day forever*

A Onesie For All Seasons

I’m not sure I’ve met a onesie I didn’t like. Babies wear onesies, and I’ve recently decided that babies get all the best stuff. So anything I can do to get more on a baby’s level, is a step in the right direction. I think this particular jumpsuit will be a go-to for me in upcoming months - it works with a tank top and sandals, but it will go with ankle boots and some kind of warmer top-half item, as well. A sweatah, a blazah, ya know, whatevah.

Santy Claus Is Comin

Christmas is a day where, sartorially speaking, you don’t have to try too hard. Grammie doesn’t want to see you in a sheer top and leather drop-crotch trousers anyway. Your clothes should be ready for cookie-eating, whiskey-drinking, and present-opening, aka loose and/or stretchy. We don’t get super fancy in my house for the occasion, and stay specifically dressed down for Christmas morning in particular - mascara, hairbrushes and clothes that are not pajamas are strictly banned - but for Christmas evening, we like to get a little cleaned up. A simple, luxe sweater, pants with tactile interest, and CUTE SOCKS (no shoes allowed) are de rigeur for me. Here’s some ideas to get ya started - 

Socks - if you’re not wearing shoes, make your feet look cool in other ways. Also your other socks are probably old and gross. So get new ones, like stripes with a cap toe, something Fairisle-y, or polka dots!

Sweater - My first choice would be something cashmere of course, because I can feel like a rich lady. This Vince sweater will have you looking like a very cute candy cane, and I have something similar to this Velvet one that I basically live in. This tan/gray combo or metallic pullover are a little less expensive, but just as good for lounging around and eating all day. 

Pants - Something velvety, like this Free People pair.

Add in hot toddies, gift bows and rosy cheeks wherever possible.
