I have this fascination with vintage loungewear and pajamas. While I'm all about the comfort of yoga pants and threadbare t-shirts, there's just something so glamourous about silk and lace when you're just lounging around.
Lately I've been eyeing the 1920s for inspiration on what to wear around the house on the weekends or after work. I love the sleeveless top and pants combos, or the loose dress silhouettes that were in vogue at the time. They're girly and lacy without being overly sexy, yet they still look comfortable. I could open the door for a delivery or a neighbor without feeling like a slob or like I need to throw on a sweatshirt first. (Both which have happened too many times to count. My neighbors probably think I'm nuts)
I also love this time frame for pajamas and lingerie as it introduced styles that were new, especially for women. Their fascination with Asia brought kimono style robes to popularity in the west. Rompers, bandeau tops, and sleeveless tops with capris or palazzo pants were all new shapes that were introduced - and are still popular today. Overall, this makes me realize I need to up my loungewear game!
