Pajamas in Disguise

works cited: loft trousers, thrifted wedges, target belt and tee, gap sweater, vintage glasses

After a decadently lazy spring break, Monday has been a rude awakening--a lot of papers to grade, appointments, meetings, paper assignments to conjure up, and overdue reading. And while my mind is full throttle back to work, my outfit is evidently less cooperative with the workweek. When I uploaded these photos, I realized how loose and drapey all these clothes are. Which made me realize: this outfit is accidentally pajamas in disguise. I'm hoping my closet gets its act together tomorrow, because pajamas, whether disguised or not, don't quite cut it for teaching.

Liz said...

I think this looks great! Maybe not as polished as your usual look - but I think it's still teaching appropriate! :)

SIENA.STYLE said...

Amy said...

I saw those Loft trousers online and love them. I think this outfit looks great on you. Not at all like pj's!

Ashley J said...

I actually love this entire outfit because it is drapey and loose. It looks like you were trying to look chic but not to hard...perfect!

Emily said...

Well if they're jammies they are PJ Chic.

Job and Rachael said...

Ooh but I love this outfit! You look effortlessly chic and put together (not to mention comfy ;) Love it.

This outfit is just about the perfect casual ensemble. Comfy pants? Striped shirt? Adorable specs? Check, check, check!

Lin said...

Every time I see these pants I think to myself that I should try to find them. They look great!

Patricia said...

I don't even know what your talking about - that looks perfectly okay for teaching! Haha, most of my TA's/profs look even less professional than that. Although your outfit certainly looks comfy, it still looks put together and the color pallet leads to a level of formality.

Belt = not pajamas.

Linley said...

hmmm... i actually think this looks fabulously chic! if I passed by you I definitely wouldn't think "pj's" - I'd think, "i like that. must try to re-create."

Kelly said...

Except I dont think this outfit is loose/drapey at all! The trouser jeans are super chic, and the striped shirt is a perfect fit. :) I love this actually!

When I saw the title I wondered which thing was pajamas lol. I love clothes that are super comfy, and stylish. You pull off an open front cardigan well.

Molly said...

Nicely done. These are the most chic pajamas in disguise I've ever seen!


Leaving the House in THIS?!?!

GoodFrameofMind said...

Pajamas or not, this looks so cute, and those legs...they go on for days...!

Santina said...

This look might feel as comfortable as pajamas, but it's way cuter than what I wear to bed...although I do love stripes enough to want to wear them all day and night! Those pants look great on you!

The Natty and Jessie Show said...

Long legs much?!
Pajama clothes are the bestest!!

Joy C. said...

You look so cool and all je ne sais quoi comme les Parisiennes.
Proof that I haven't gone to Target in too long.

Emily said...

I think you look very put-together, not like you're wearing PJs at all! I say if you can get away with being this comfortable, keep doing it. You look dressy enough to teach for me.

Of course, you could always get some suitjamas: http://suitjama-up.com/home.html

Healthy and Homemade said...

This doesn't look at all like jammies silly! I think you look fabulous, relaxed, chic, and of course comfortable =)

Gina said...

You look so chic! Not at all pajama-y!

My secret pajama clothes are a jersey dress and cardigan. Everyone thinks I am dressed up when really I am wearing the jersey dress because it is way more comfortable than pants!

Every time I feel like I am dressing way too comfortable for teaching/reference I just have to find a few undergrads in the library- the sweats and Ugg boots remind me that I do look somewhat more professional than they do!!

Vanessa said...

Psh...this outfit is too hip to be pajamas. I love it!

Kayla said...

I love the trousers. I need a pair of my own. Oh and could you be any cuter in those glasses?

OH I beg to differ - my favorite teaching outfit is a hooded sweaterdress that is totally like wearing a bathrobe but perfectly presentable with a belt (I hope?!). :D You look adorable back in the grind!

Sachi said...

It's funny, as I was scrolling down the post I was thinking how well the straight leg pants suit you - definitely not pajamas! They make your legs look a mile long. To me, this looks more professional than the tight pants or skinny jeans you often show on this blog - those frequently read pretty young to me, where these look like actual trousers. Funny how perceptions differ....

Plain Jane said...

I love this look! As a grad student myself, this looks like the perfect studying outfit - comfortable but still chic. And I'm also totally obsessed with those glasses!

as soon as i saw the first pic i thought "tania is so freakin' cute!"
and you are madam, love this it's perfect for the monday after spring break!

Grace said...

the bottom kind of pulls it together! I like the outfit but I understand if it feels too drapey. Still cute though!

Mara said...

oh my gosh I love this look! The drapeyness makes you look super tall, and the bun too :) I'm glad you had a nice spring break. Hopefully teaching won't be too crazy or hectic tomorrow!

Laurelann said...

I think this looks classic and simple. It could easily be dressed up to be the Victor/Victoria of pajamas. I say pajamas are good for everything. Not to mention, this outfit makes you look super tall and accentuates your slender-i-ness. I vote keep it. :)

It doesn't look too loose. I kinda like the silhouette actually
Oh and a lovely new template! Looks really cute

Larysse Tavares said...

Tania! How amazing this new blog layout! =D I must say I love pajamas and your outfit doesn't look 'loose' or 'pajamas-like'. You look dorky and cute =)

xoxo

Rochelle Approved said...

Drapey doesn't mean that your look isn't pulled together! I think you look great as always and that belt is just the right touch for the look!

Veronica said...

Marie @ Lemondrop Vintage said...

But your pj's have panache, not like the pajama jeans on tv.

Steph said...

New layout-related: I LOVE the new look, but the font in the text part of your posts is really hard to read if you are using Chrome as a browser (it's much easier on the eyes in Firefox and IE). I don't want to be a complainer, but I love reading your blog and would be so sad if I had to stop reading it because of text-induced headaches!

Cel said...

But you're wearing a belt! Nobody puts big belts on their PJ's. Your outfit is safe! I think you look very teacher-y like this actually, although that's probably the glasses and hair speaking to me.
