No they didn't have to verbalise their thoughts. I could see it written all over their faces. As I walked downstairs this morning, the husband's jaw dropped (not in awe I hasten to add) and the son stifled a laugh. Why? Because of these.
My new trousers. Actually scrub that.
My new pyjamas.
Yep they're pj bottoms from M&S Autograph. Sorry can't link as they're not online but they had loads in the sale in my local branch (reduced to a tenner as well).
I've been desperately searching for a good pair all season. Love love love the ones from Me&Em (here) but I couldn't bring myself to spend over £100 for something I might only wear a few times. They're probably a one season wonder too (which doesn't make me love them any less).
So, when I saw these, it was a case of buying, trying and if I feel an absolute tool or the ribbing at home gets too much, I can relegate to their proper use - bed wear.
Ok so we won't be showing the ruched waist band.
|Pink Shirt - Dorothy Perkins (old)|
Black and nude Pyjama bottoms - Marks & Spencer (not on line but check in store)
Boots - Boden (similar)
To prevent them from looking too pyjamaish I've kept things formal on top. Initially I'd planned to wear a chiffon mac but it all looked too floppy and one step away from bedtime so blazer and a nude pink blouse it is.
Dare I venture out? Pah, yeah of course. Mind you I'll give Tesco a wide berth. Didn't they ban people sporting nightwear from their stores a couple of years ago??
It's worth popping down to your local M&S to check their stock as they seem to have much much more in the sale than online. In fact, I might have picked up a lovely pair of floral ones too.
NO I WON'T BE WEARING THEM AS DAYWEAR.
