Ok, so I know celebrities can usually get away with wearing some pretty wacky style trends simply because they're famous, but please, please, please -- someone tell me celebs stepping out wearing pajamas isn't a fashion statement that's going to stick! I know there's the whole comfort factor and it can be so tempting to just roll out of bed & leave the house without bothering to change -- but I just can't help but see running around in pajamas as borderline lazy. (Unless you're quickly dropping the kids off at school & coming right back home. That's different.)
Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr looks amazing in anything, but even she had a bit of the mom frump going on when she wore her pj's to catch a flight at the airport.
Even though she paired her baggy look with a high-end handbag, a chic jacket, and heels -- it's still hard to ignore the fact that her shirt & pajama bottoms are a bit on the "blah" side. (But then again, she is Miranda Kerr, and she does still look gorgeous, regardless of her frumpy style.)
Other celebs who have hopped on the pajama trend include Rihanna, who wore what looked like a bathrobe on the red carpet in Tokyo, and Salma Hayek, who recently donned a pair of silk pajamas.
There's nothing wrong with dialing back your style a bit, but the problem with this new pajama trend is that it takes all the fun out of getting dressed & ready to face the day in the morning. And for moms in particular, I can't stress just how important I think it is to take the few extra minutes to get out of our jammies and throw on regular clothes before leaving the house.
I definitely have days where I'm pressed for time and wind up throwing on a hat and big sunglasses to hide the fact that I didn't have time to do my hair & makeup. But I always, always manage to put on something other than what I slept in the night before. Even if it's an old pair of jeans and a t-shirt, getting dressed makes me feel better, and I carry myself with much more confidence throughout the rest of the day. Sleepwear is called sleepwear for a reason, and it should stay in the bedroom where it belongs.
