Concrete Catwalk // Pajamas in Public

September 28, 2012

Looking for a little bit of weekend-wear to get you excited for the next few days?  You’ve come to the right place. (And I’m SO glad you’re here.)

Read on to see how I style up the “pajama” trend we’ve been seeing so much of recently, and for a kick-butt photo of me doing my best ninja impression. ;)

Wore this outfit for some errand-running last Sunday; We needed to take my MacBook into the Apple store to get serviced (hence the insanely functional and adorable computer bag), and ended up making a very special purchase that I’m typing on this very minute… A sleek little wireless keyboard, and a brand new iMac to match!

I knew I wanted to wear my sassy little leather shorts, and throwing on an easy breezy top just seemed like the perfect counterpart, no?  Have you tried the pajama trend for yourself yet?  I was a little hesitant at first, but now that I’ve experienced it, I’m totally hooked.  Want to know the clincher?  Wearing pajama-inspired pieces out in public feels like exactly like WEARING PAJAMAS IN PUBLIC! :)

Check out these shoppable options that I’ve rounded up below, and have a Wonderful Weekend, friends!!!

    I definitely want to try it. I love wearing PJs so why not in public?
