Vintage Valentine Nightwear
Happy Valentine's Day!
I don’t own a pair of sweatpants. I’m one of those people who feel more comfortable in jeans. Some evenings, I don’t take off my jeans and boots until I’m ready to go to bed. My friends in high school and college used to tease me when I showed up to movie nights in jeans. That being said, if I am lounging at home for a long period of time before going to bed, I like feeling put together. I can’t even help it. I have several full-on outfits just for lounging.
When I saw this vintage nightgown with the matching robe at a vintage flea market, I wasn’t able to pass it up. The piece is so effeminate and luxurious. The layers of material are sheer and soft to the touch. Vintage nightwear is incredible, because it’s modest and ladylike without being matronly. I got this piece at a vintage flea market, but you can find pieces like this one in local vintage stores everywhere. Even vintage slips can make perfect nightgowns.
Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! Spread the love today!
