how to dress up a matching set

0 Permalink 0

another day, another matching set. i told myself i didn’t need another sweat suit, but here we are. truth is, they make me feel pulled together amidst a season that feels a bit nutty (aka raising one-year-old twins) and for that reason alone, they’re worth every penny. thankfully this one isn’t too many pennies ($29.99 to be exact) and is the perfect light-weight fabric as we enter into the summer months. it’s a waffled jersey fabric with ribbing at the neckline and cuffs. the shorts have an elasticized waistband with a drawstring for an adjustable fit but sadly no pockets (womp, womp). overall, i’m very impressed with the quality despite its affordable price! i opted for the beige, but it comes in a pretty lavender shade as well.

h&m pajama top and shorts (small) || madewell oversized denim jacket (small) || target shade & shore birkenstocks (sized up 1/2 size) || janessa leone hat (similar)

technically this co-ord is listed as pajamas, but with a few additional pieces, i was able to take it out into the wild. here are my tips on how to dress it up:

throw on a jacket. often deemed the ‘third piece,’ a jacket is the perfect addition to help make an ensemble feel complete. i personally reach for my denim jacket to achieve this effect, but a structured blazer is another great option!

add a hat. not only does a hat hide dirty hair (guilty as charged!), it also adds visual interest to any outfit. if hats aren’t your thing, try a scrunchie, bandana, or headband.

pair with a playful shoe. at this stage of life, i’m all about comfort when it comes to footwear. thankfully birkenstocks are having a major moment right now (cue goal post hands) and come in a ton of colors at a variety of price points (i snagged the ones i’m wearing in two colors). when i’m not wearing these, i’ll probably pair this set with lace-up sandals (currently have my eye on these, too).
