Night to Day.

Vintage Nightgown (worn as a top), Pink Flats, Coral Earrings: Thrifted.
Brown Skirt: Forever21.
Lipstick in WNW's Mauve Outta Here.

Fashion blogs and magazines love to tell you how to take an outfit go from day and then work it into something to wear at night. I don't think I've ever seen it the other way around? I've had this super strange love of thrifting vintage nightgowns the past few months, and have started to acquire quite a collection. Sometimes they're just too pretty to only be worn to bed, so I've been trying to think of ways to make it look presentable for daytime wear.

I don't really know if this outfit cuts it or not, but I didn't feel too exposed wearing my negligee in the outfit. Youtuber Anastasjia (who is both equal parts hilarious and adorable) gave me the courage I needed after watching this video of hers on how to style nightgowns for day wear. I can't really offer up you all any tips (definitely don't feel qualified to do that), other than  just do you.

In other news, four more days of school this week and then I'm headin' home for Easter. It may seem like I go home a lot, and the truth is... I really do. But when you live a bit over an hour away and you miss your little sister so much you can hardly stand it...well, frequent trips home are in order. Looking forward to seeing the fam and spending time in the big M!

Hope all of ya'll's weekend was beautiful. It was 80 degrees today when I wore this & simply perfect out

With much love, Lauren.

As someone who literally wears my pajamas to class sometimes, this is a very good thing.

(Now I just need to find cute pjs instead of my sweats and tshirts, heh)

And, are those books made of concrete? Where is this?! That is like, the quintessential shooting location.

I don't wear nightgowns--I opt for tees and sofee shorts, but I do envy those who can pull nightgowns off. Your is gorgeous, it does make want to buy a slip or something similar to wear "night to day"!

You look gorgeous :) Really loving the navy blue and brown color combination. And that's a nightgown?? It looks awesome as a top. I went to college only 45 minutes away from where my parents live so I visited home all of the time too. It's nice to be able to do that.

You look so adorable! I love your outfit and your hair looks lovely when it's curled! I love the "bookshelf wall", where is that? Whoever designed and constructed that is awesome!

Have a wonderful day!

What is that location?! So gorgeous!

SB said...

Same question as the last commenter what is that location? It is so pretty.
I wouldn't be brave enough to wear nightwear as day wear even t-shirt type tops.
And lastly I have spent far too long watching videos from Anastasjia, I'm still watching her now...
