I have an obsession with Maxi dresses. I seriously can't get enough. I love anything in maxi form. Dresses, skirts, you name it. I mean what other item of clothing could you wear and feel like you are wearing PJ's? I support anything that makes me feel that comfortable. I was talking to my sisinlaw about this very fact, when she admitted to wearing nightgowns herself. First of all I was super surprised and a tad jealous. You can wear a nightgown and not be elderly? I had not gotten the memo. I have never invested in a nightgown, since I thought it would become instant birth control in my house, if you know what I mean. After talking to Holly though, I am seriously considering it. I mean Maxi's in the day, nightgowns in the night. I would be super comfy 24-7. Who could turn that down? err....Maybe the Hubbs, but my comfort is at stake folks! He would totally understand right? Please tell me I not the only young momma who secretly wants a nightgown :)

  2. Yes, get you a nightgown. They are much more feminine that pajama pants and tshirts. And no, you don't have to be elderly to wear a nightgown. Go shopping, you may be surprised how pretty gowns are now.
    your thrifted maxi dress is really pretty good on you-

    1. Also, not getting graphic or anything like that but I think hubbies prefer anything feminine. Nightgowns are lots more attractive than yoga pants. ;) Good for you for being able to wear maxis! I tried one on and it made me look like a cow!

  3. I have 3 nightgowns!!!!! I got them at Target and Lane bryant so they are actually really cute and not granny looking and lets just say, the hubby enjoys them :) You should buy one!!!! They are so comfy, like sleeping in a big t shirt!

  4. I've thought about nightgowns myself. You could get the t-shirt gowns that's not so 'elderly' looking.

  6. Very pretty! maxis are super in-style this year (and also were last year). They are so feminine and pretty. Very youngish too. (someone my age wouldn't look good in them, as I am 55). Fabric with a knit is always comfy. It is not so much the style, but a knit.

    I never thought much about nightgowns being for older people...ha..something to ponder!

  7. Hahaha I don't have a husband yet so I totally invested in a nightgown and I LOVE IT. It's so comfy, and I think I pull it off quite nicely, thank you very much. :D

  9. Pretty. Did you make it? I actually have one nightgown but wear it rarely. I think PJs are more comfortable for me :)

  10. I found a super cute super soft jersey sundress at Kohl's on clearance last summer. It is my go to night gown. I look somewhat presentable if anyone should stop by but I still feel like I am wearing a night gown and the husband approves.

  12. I actually like comfy teddy dresses. A night gown would be NOT allowed in this house, lol. But you can find some really comfy teddy's online that feel as comfy as a maxi dress, but still super cute for the hubby!

  13. I love gowns! Just not the long granny ones. I prefer short and sleeveless. Turning 40 this year but have been wearing gowns for almost 20 years of marriage and have a 3 YO, so not a BC here, lol.

  14. Your blog inspires me...I made two of your twenty-minute skirts on Saturday while listening to conference (although they did take me more than 20 minutes). I used to wear long flannel nighties in the winter and short night shirts in the summer which were super comfy for me (and my sweet hubby had no problems with them) but I changed to jammy pants and t-shirts when my kids (especially my boys) got to be teens - just for the sake of modesty. (Hubby actually liked the nighties better).

    1. I am so glad you made some of the skirts. That is awesome:> I am sure you are rockin them!

    2. I am seriously so embarassed because this posted under my HUSBAND's name...we both had a chuckle about it last night, but it was a mistake. So sorry. My husband does not sew or wear nighties or (apparently) sign out of his gmail account. He did get me started on following your blog after reading about you on Yahoo news and sending me a link to your blog. He is Mr. Frugal - we both love saving money!
      I love your blog and your ideas today about kitchen organization. I am seriously old enough to be your mom, I'm sure (my kids range in age from 31 to 16) but I sure learn a lot from you.

    3. haha! That is so funny. I actually hadn't noticed it was a guys name. I just looked at the comment, read it, and responded. Too funny though:> Thanks so much for brining it to my attention. It seriously gave me a laugh over here:)

  15. I never considered nightgowns to be for older people! I mean, we wear them as little girls, don't we? My 9-year old loves them, so when do they stop being acceptable and turn into old lady clothes lol? Def wear them. They're amazingly comfortable and honestly? They're far easier to, erm, deal with in the event of a non-birth control evening lol.

  18. Did you make your necklace? If you've made jewelry (or repurposed older) could you maybe post about it?

    1. Nope I actually got it from a deal of the day site. SassySteals.com. I got it for under $10. Seriously amazing deal. I wish I made jewelry. I should probably try it out right:>

      Delete
    2. that IS an amazing deal! My 4 yr old is into making jewelry for her friends. So fun and cheap for that age. I've looked into materials to make some of my own but it's outrageous what you can pay! I'm sure if it was on my radar to check clearance or craft stores that offer the extra percentages off it wouldn't be so bad!

  19. Cant wear either. The dresses dont look good on me and nightgowns get all wrapped around me and I feel trapped

  20. You seriously have the cutest clothes!! So jealous. And yes to anything you can wear in public that is as comfy as jammies!! :)

  21. I'm amazed that you think night gowns are for old ladies. IF! we wore night clothes, my husband would definitely prefer gowns. He thinks pajamas are horribly unfeminine for married women.

    I enjoy robes and loungers for relaxing around the house in the evening sometimes.

  22. I wear pjs, but not night gowns because I thought the same thing! maybe we can start a trend and bring them back!! And I LOVE maxi dresses too, and boho type skirts. Im all about comfort :)

  23. so cute! I love your outfit! i love maxi dresses too!

  24. while i absolutelly love the dress and cant wait to figure out how to make one myself!!! I am in love with the necklace! did you make that yourself or did you purchase it somewhere?

    1. I got it from SassySteals.com. IT is a deal of the day site. I am thinking though I need to start making my own. Such a fun craft to learn:>

    2. the reason i ask is i make all my own jewelry and i loved it so much i figured if you made it you could list your suplies. but i guess i can just figure it out myself! thanks anyways.
