These warmer days have me feeling excited that I get to work from home and stay in the cool AC. It has me reflecting on what I've been wearing at home. My grandmother was the ultimate 'home' girl, I don't think I can remember seeing my grandmother not look fabulous at home. She would wake up and head directly to her vanity to get herself ready to make our family breakfast. She would sashay out in her fabulous blue silk patterned robe, to this day I am in love with that robe, she still has it. In the afternoons, she would throw on these fabulous caftans while serving lemonade to us by the pool. At night, while giving us late night ice cream, she would wear her soft nightgowns. When she would clean the kitchen she had fabulous rubber gloves and when cooking her aprons were feminine and floral. Always. The girl didn't miss a beat.
This is something I still try, operative word is try, to emulate to this day. Just because you are at home all day doesn't mean you shouldn't look absolutely fabulous while doing laundry, making sandwiches or even working at your home office. Let's take a page out of my grandmothers play book and step up our fashion at home. I'm putting together a few looks that are really inspiring me right now. . .
How fabulous do you feel when you slip out of the bath and throw on a pair of beautiful pajamas?Pajamas are all the rage right now. In the March issue of Instyle magazine, they are suggesting you wear pajamas out on the town.
These black "moonlight" pajamas are insanely soft, made of modal which is like heavenly fabric. I have 2 pair. They travel so lightly. I love this set of navy pajamas from J.Crew. I also adore a pj short set too in the summer months. How pretty is the grey dot silk set? Don't forget to get yourself some slippers, I have my eyes on these black Tempurpedic ones. I'm also thinking I may need to get myself a chic nightgown like this, I love the touch of lace. If you live where its warm and you're feeling flirty, try this pretty peach and lace set.
There is not a more luxurious feeling that finding that plush robe in your hotel closet and throwing it on so you can relax. I believe that everyone should have this luxury at home. Indulge in a beautiful robe for yourself and see the magic of domestic bliss come into play.
I have forever longed for a robe from La Perla, this black silk one with white lace...ooooph. I so want it. I also love the kimono style robe, these come in black and cotton candy and are fun for warmer months. This Natori robe in a beautiful silk fabric is just how my grandmothers was, so elegant and beautiful. How gorgeous is this light pink butterfly robe? The barefoot dreams robe is an all time favorite, so plush and cozy.
How can you step up your at home fashion game? Here is a little mantra for you as you get yourself looking fabulous at home. . .
