PJ party: styling a pyjama top with a distressed denim skirt, ankle-strap sandals, and a newsboy cap

Well I’ve gone and done it, dear readers…I’ve become a pyjama-dressing convert!!

This blue-on-blue floral “shirt” I’m wearing is a genuine pyjama top; purchased with full-length bottoms as a matching set…and purchased without the intention of ever wearing either piece for anything as clichéd as sleeping.  😉

What brought on my change of opinion about this particular trend…yet another I said I’d never do??  Having been on the lookout for a new summer jumpsuit (possibly the easy-breeziest hot weather outfit option ever!) I started thinking about how much more versatile two separate pieces would surely be.  Worn with the top tucked into the elastic-waisted bottoms, you’d be hard-pressed to guess that I wasn’t wearing a onesie.  But I can also do the pj pants with a camisole top, for example; or the top with, say, a denim skirt…like I did today!!

So now you’re likely wondering if I’ve “for reals” worn both the top and bottom of my pyjama set together for that aforementioned jumpsuit look.  And the answer is yes – I certainly have!!  Robin and I accepted a last-minute invitation to a Sunday evening barbecue a few weeks ago; so I paired my pj’s with some strappy heels and dangly earrings, and off we went.  When the hostess complimented how dressed up I was, I didn’t have the heart to tell her that I was actually already dressed for bed!!  😊

    That is hilarious. All dressed up in your pajamas. Love it. I never would have known that wasn't a regular blouse if you hadn't said anything. It's really pretty. It looks great with the skirt.
