I wore a nightgown yesterday. Outside. All day.
Who says you can't? Pfft....conventions.
I saw Nadia from Frou Frouu do this first, with a vintage nightgown here. When I found this one in Stanley, I thought it would be a perfect summer dress. It actually came with billowy sleeves (and looked like a nightgown a frontier woman might wear), so my trusted seamstress in Stanley took the sleeves right off and took some of the width in to make it slightly less shapeless. I still wanted it to be kind of loose and flowy, and I think this fits the bill.
Since it is a nightgown, I'm going to have to figure out how to style it in the summer (it doesn't leave much to the imagination). For now, it worked to wear tights underneath and a cardigan over the top.

It wasn't until I got to school that I realized (and a few colleagues and students commented) that I looked like I was wearing a nurse's uniform. One student even commented that I looked like Mother Teresa. I'm not sure how I feel about that.
Note to self: try to style this up in a more bohemian way next time. Think hat, lots of bracelets, and necklaces. Channel Nadia a little more.
