As a child, I dreamed of Wear Your Pyjamas To School Day. I dreamed of rolling out of bed and rocking onto the playground in a fresh set of PJs and slippers. But this day never happened for me.
Luckily, it has manifest in my adult life as Wear Your Pyjamas To Work Day. Taking place on the 16th April, this international “holiday” does not mean rolling straight out of bed and into work without changing your outfit. It means finding some fancy nightwear and styling it good enough to wear it out on the street without raising any eyebrows.
I imagine that if the minority of us celebrating the day went out in public in button up pink PJ’s and unicorn slippers there would be many questions of why on earth are you strutting down the street like that?My chosen piece is the Monica chemise from Boux Avenue. Available in black, white and pink, this satin number is perfect for looking PJ-esque but work ready.
I styled it with some black suede boots, straightened hair and a bold lip – I couldn’t risk looking like I may have bed hair and hadn’t made an effort to do my face up if I was to be wearing pyjamas out and about.Use my discount code JOSIEOBOUX for 20% off all new in nightwear on the Boux Avenue site to get yourself Wear Your Pyjamas To Work Day ready!
