AJ Wears :: Pajama shorts

 I've been slightly intrigued by the "pajama short" trend that I've been seeing lately. At least, I guess that's what you'd call it. I wish I could pinpoint the other people I've seen wearing slouchy, printed shorts with blazers and sweaters, but I don't really remember. I was randomly in Forever this week and saw these on sale - plus an additional 50% - making them $6 and the perfect platform for testing a trend.

 What I discovered is, silk shorts are like, SUPER comfortable. I wore these to play the slots in Tunica with my husband for his birthday, and then they transitioned perfectly to evening for birthday dinner and drinks with friends. I'm eager to see if they translate into fall with slouchy sweaters and tights. For now, I'll wear them while I can and then just add them to my actual pajama wardrobe when the fad is over. I was so into the pajama trend, I even created a collection on Pose to see if I could find more people playing with silk.

I made two JustFab orders this month. Vivienne, the studded pump you saw last week, and Brigette, which my shoe friends convinced me I needed. I had to exchange for 1/2 size up, but these pretties are going to be fabulous for fall. I'm pretty sure I didn't have any green shoes! They rubbed a little after a full day of walking but I suspect once they're broken in they'll be pretty comfortable.

Anyone else hopping on the pajamas in public train? Here's to hoping I don't look like I forgot my pants.

Blazer, Target.
Shirt, MICHAEL Michael Kors.

Weekend Snapshots :: Christmas and Beyond

Christmas was eventful, you guys. Not only did we have a white Christmas, we had an all out blizzard which led to a lot of shenanigans.

Amazing animal pajamas (they're called kigurimis) I ordered from China that my sister and I rarely took off. They are THAT. COMFY.

And yes, I'm ridiculous and put my dog in pajamas too. I found them at an after Christmas sale, don't judge me. Watching her prance around the house in a snowflake onesie turned out to be the best $4 that I've ever spent. It was HILARIOUS.

I knew it was going to snow in Little Rock on Christmas, but I had hope it would snow in Longview while we were visiting my parents. Luckily for me, we had a good hour or two of beautiful snow in Texas on Christmas! It was truly magical, and thankfully all melted the next day so we could still make the Target after Christmas sale.

Sadly, our house in Little Rock was not so lucky. We spent the rest of the week checking our thermostat waiting for it to come online. The house was out of power until Saturday - and then AGAIN on Sunday, so we've been house hopping for the past week waiting for heat and lights (and most importantly, internet).

Spent our last night of Christmas break at the casinos in Shreveport - I might not have won any money but I found a few slot machines that were a total blast!

My BFF from growing up, Chesley, standing in front of a million dollar wall at the Horseshoe Casino. Probably the only million I'll ever see in my lifetime!

How was your holiday, lovelies? I'm excited to get my party on tonight for New Years and I have my fingers crossed that it'll be one with lots of light and heat (power, hurry up!). I hope you all have a fabulous last night of 2012 and I'll see you in 2013 with lots more sequins and sass.
