Like any mom, I love feeling stylish, but I also have to be realistic. Being a work-at-home mom means that my typical "work" uniform has to be ultra-casual and definitely machine washable.
In fact, sometimes my life is so distinctly un-glamorous that it seems like a waste of time to get out of my PJs at all. And now, I don't have to!
People! I've found nightgowns for daytime! Nightgowns that look like real clothes! Really CUTE clothes! I AM TOTALLY SERIOUS.
Click through to see what I've discovered!
First, the backstory.
I was at the mall a month or two ago and stopped in Soma Intimates for the first time. I had never been in the store before, but I'd seen some cute things there online and was hoping to score some new loungewear.
Instead, I saw what looked to be ... dresses.
I looked more closely. They were dresses, all right. BUT THEY WERE MADE OUT OF NIGHTGOWN MATERIAL.
Check out this drape front dress (Soma Intimates, $69), for example. Wear it to work. Wear it out. AND THEN GO TO SLEEP IN IT. I DARE YOU.
Looking for something a little sexier? I really like this surplus halter dress (Soma Intimates, $59). It's sultry yet comfy. Sultry yet comfy?! Is that even possible?!
I bought a dress similar to this andie maxi dress (Soma Intimates, $79) and I'm actually wearing it right now. Yep, it feels like I'm wearing a nightgown. Yep, it looks like a dress.
In general, I realize this idea is nothing new. Gap Body's loungewear is basically the same concept -- comfortable, flowy pants and tops that are soft enough to sleep in.
But this is the first time I've seen the concept applied to dresses. And for moms? I'M LOVIN' IT.
How about you?
