To get dressed in the morning or not? Pyjama dressing and kimonos

The weather has just turned so cold in the last week or so; it’s almost made me want to hibernate.

And as the mornings are just becoming that little bit darker each day, trying to get up doesn’t get any easier… then to think of what to wear in this ever-changeable weather when you’d rather just stay in bed; Pyjama dressing; keeping the dream alive. OK, so more the wearing out of pyjama-styles with real life actually needing to happen; here are some pieces out there.

The majority of these can be worn as is, now… then layered up with a vest, cami or polo neck when the wind really does blow. (I for one, am never ever knowingly under layered).

Starting off with supremely clean with contrast piped edge detailing; Zara blouse, £25.993666160800_2_1_1 zara £25.99

Jacket style – I love the boxy shape of this and where it lands on the hip… Zara £29.99

Similar at M&S – jacket £35.00 (ignore the blouse, I’d wear this with a plain round neck something)

SD_01_T59_2893J_Y4_X_EC_2 M&S £35

Co-ordinating wide leg trousers, £25.00 (ignore the shoes. Go trainers. Or kick ass heels – but only if trousers are long enough). There are rules people.

Perhaps not as full on Pyjama dressing as the original brief, the head to toe print gives that feeling; so dramatic as a full on outfit. Love. Mango kaftan £59.99, trousers £39.99

Gestuz at Asos a steeper £150 price for the blouse. £139 for the wide leg trousers.

Kimonos… now so many of us have something like this in our wardrobes, to layer on, dress up or cover up. I think there’s probably room for one more…
