A Whole New World for PJ’s

I have to admit, when I first heard/saw/read about this whole “pajama” inspired style, I was totally skeptical.  There is nothing that disgraces the human race more than seeing someone walking around IN PUBLIC while still wearing their pajamas.  Honestly people, have some dignity!  Throw on some jeans!

However, I saw this trend growing quickly and realized that there was a way to make this just-rolled-out-of-bed look into a totally fashionable and acceptable ensemble.  So, I went out to H&M and purchased a pair of white and gray, vertically and slanted-striped pants with a zipper bottom.  Firstly, I was impressed by the fit – I’m 5’1″ and finding a pair of pants that don’t drag inches behind me is a rarity.  Secondly, OMG were these not the most comfortable pants in the world?  Yes, they were.  Finally, the slouchy fit wasn’t all that terrible due to the fact that the zippers at the bottom brought the pants into a skinnier fit on the bottom.  But totally not Justin Bieber and his latest obsession with M.C. Hammer harem pants.

I chose to pair them with a longer white tee, my cute BCBG jellies and threw on a colorful necklace to add some color. It was by far the most comfortable day of work and walking around I have ever had and I will absolutely be purchasing more of this style of pants!

See some more looks below of how to pull-off this relaxed look while also staying totally trendy!

Coral for Spring

jcrewlook

I can’t think of a punchier, perkier or more perfect color for spring than coral.  It’s the just-right mix of pastel and bright, depending on the hue you choose.  It compliments every skin color.  It also goes with every color of the rainbow – so color and outfit combos are truly endless!  Coral is also a perfect color to wear into the hot summer months.  But for now, we will just use it as a summer buffer to wear during the spring months.  The above look is from J. Crew and it inspired me to scour sites for everything coral to add to my closet.
