Pyjama style



We all know how flipping comfy pyjamas are so, the fact that pyjama-esque clothing is on trend, is one of the best things ever. Loose, flowy clothing is so comfortable- especially in warmer weather! I have already featured this cami on here, but I wear it SO damn much, that it'd be impossible to not feature it at least twice.









Shorts- Handmade (My pick of floral shorts-here)   Cami- Primark (similar)   Leather jacket- Oasis (alternative)  Choker- New Look

Shooting outfit photos in the lanes in Brighton turned out to be fairly difficult. Firstly there were the very inconsiderate people who kept trying to run me over- I know it is a road but please?! As well as this, there were a few stares, mostly from men- pfffft. Overall though, Brighton is a great place to take outfit photos as hardly anyone stares at you, compared to up north. Although, I did see a woman  posing rather oddly under the pier, so maybe me taking outfit photos wasn't the strangest thing ever to the people of Brighton.

The shorts were made by me ,before I did AS textiles and became traumatized by sewing, and they are made from vintage fifties taffeta fabric, which is so light and airy. I love the print of them, and the fact that they have pockets is just perfect. FACT- pockets make clothing one hundred times cooler. With the loose cami tucked in, there is quite a pyjama-esque feel to them, so I added the leather jacket and choker to give the outfit a bit more edge. As it is a satin ribbon choker, this fit in with the pyjama-style clothing; keeping the outfit still quite soft and slightly subdued. Compared to this, the jacket adds much more harshness and makes the pale outfit less washed out and a bit more badass, which I think works really well to balance the look.

  4. Seriously you are talented, making your own shorts sounds hard! I can imagine how annoying those people were, when someone is taking photo, I make sure to either wait or sneak without annoying them. I wish people were more understanding!
