Nothing beats lounging at home, but we still want to stay our stylish, comfiest best
Sometimes the best thing besides dressing up for a dinner date or an afternoon brunch is dressing down for a lazy day at home, indulging in a good book or (no judgment) a Netflix marathon. With last year’s pajama trend making waves everywhere, it’s still pretty in to take loungewear from the sheets to the streets. Whether you’re chilling in your cosy bedroom or hanging out with your girlfriends, be sure to fill your wardrobe with must-have ensembles that are both comfy and chic from these stores…
Perk by Kate
You know and love this local brand for their dainty lingerie and that three-way convertible halter bralette everyone’s talking about. News flash, Perk by Kate also has a dreamy sleeping sets. Think silk camis and shorties, sweet chemises, classic short PJ sets and a super boho all-lace floor sweeping robe that we want to live in forever.
