Since I've been spending so much time in pajamas, I thought it would be fun to do a feature around them. Sleepwear is one of my favorites!
Last Fall, I became totally engrossed in Scandal, the melodrama political thriller with Kerry Washington. The women on the show come in many colors and sizes, and ALL of them use their voices. I love it!
These outfits are inspired by Washington's character, Olivia.
PIN-SPIRATION: One of the best ways to begin creating something is to gather inspiration. I love Pinterest for this purpose because it's entirely visual. For this look, I pinned various shots of Olivia's lounge outfits plus some beautiful sleep images and helpful how-to articles. Then, I gathered the pieces on the Pinterest board before putting together the looks:
CREATING THE OUTFIT: I broke down the look into its central pieces: silk pj bottoms, a heavy cabled or ribbed cashmere open sweater and a silk tank. Then, I re-interpreted it at a lower price point and in two sizes ranges. Unfortunately, sleepwear doesn't come in Petites, which is ironic since Kerry Washington is tiny!! I noticed that Olivia never wears slippers, but if you want some, my current favorites are Mahabis!
SHOP THIS OUTFIT: For my US readers, these are shoppable links from Nordstrom's and Bloomingdale's. Just click to shop!
Sleep well, my sweet, and remember what Olivia says! "We'll handle it."
