For better or worse, this year we’ve spent so much more time at home in comfy clothes. And one of the ways I’ve felt like I could still dress up was to wear nice loungewear and pajamas. So after years of lusting after different colors, I finally pulled the trigger on a set of Party Pajamas from Sleeper after seeing their exclusive pink on pink color-way for Net a Porter. I’m actually glad I didn’t buy a set before, because the latest iterations have removable feathers for easier cleaning!
I’m obsessed with the gorgeous shade of bubble gum that I couldn’t wait to wear for a weekend movie night with a bottle of champagne. And since it’s a pajama party, I’m sharing some of my other favorite picks for luxurious sleepwear!
Sleeper: While I wouldn’t trade my pink for another color, I’m also eyeing the lilac set which is just as gorgeous and perfect for Spring!
Morgan Lane: I love the combination of satin and the bold green stripe. It just reads classic pajama to me. Also I think Gigi Hadid has these, and if they’re good enough for a supermodel. Then they’re good enough for me!
La Perla: Just a classy and luxe pair of silk pajamas for a more minimal vibe. The rich beige color is to die for!
J.Crew: similar to my pink on pink set, these cotton pjs are more low maintenance but still bring the girly fun. I might have to get these next!
Olivia von Halle: I love this designer’s whimsical prints, and this blue satin is just too gorgeous.
This Fall/Winter in Georgia has been some of the most finicky weather in recent years. One day it’s sunny and warm enough for sandals, while the next day you’re looking for your warmest coat. Well, when a recent cold snap hit, I was extremely excited to wear some new Winter staples. Some of you may know that I won a contest with Lafayette 148 earlier in the year. I was gifted a couple items of my choosing and a trip to NYC to attend one of their events highlighting extraordinary women. Unfortunately, COVID had other plans and the trip/event was indefinitely postponed. However, the brand was generous enough to gift me some items of my choosing, which I took full advantage of this Fall. Unfortunately, we just haven’t had cool enough weather for me to enjoy these gorgeous pieces until now. So what did I choose? A fox fur scarf and a cognac coat that is richest shade of caramel brown. They also sent me the most gorgeous accessories, which I hope to show off in a future post. In true Brown Paper Doll fashion, I mixed high and low, layering these luxe pieces with an affordable Banana Republic sweater dress that I found on the sale rack, my new Isabel Marant boots, and some trusted Céline sunnies. I loved mixing all of these neutral shades together, but each piece is definitely special enough to stand on its own.
One of my favorite things about fashion is discovering new brands and designers. One of the brands I discovered this year happens to be Merlette! While I tried to limit my spending on clothes in 2020 for obvious reasons, I had to pull the trigger on this absolutely gorgeous dress.
An airy design of tiered cotton, this Merlette dress is perfect for pregnancy and beyond. Being able to wear an outfit even after I give birth was one of the biggest criteria for my purchases this year. I also loved the sherberty shade of lavender that was too delicious to pass up. I recently wore this dress on a mini pre-Holiday getaway and paired it with Isabel Marant western-inspired boots. However, I can’t wait to wear it with strappy sandals or espadrilles for Spring/Summer. The options are endless!
