When I’m at home, you can pretty much always find me in a satin slip dress and matching robe. I imagine you’re thinking, “why on earth wouldn’t you just wear an old t-shirt and boxer shorts around the house like a normal freaking person?” Well, I used to until about three years ago. Like I said in my last post, it’s essential to treat. yo. self.
Your personal style is something that you carry with you everywhere 24/7 in all aspects of life. Early in my 20s, I would dress up super chic for day & night and then come home and put on ten-year old sweatpants. I had this persona of going out and doing the absolute most (*EJ Johnson voice*), but then I would come home and dress down to dinginess. It was just NOT cute. In my senior year of college, I binge-watched Gossip Girl (always with a face mask) and noticed that they NEVER dressed down to anything less than 100%. Granted this is a television show, but it inspired me to always look put together. And being put together doesn’t mean you have to uncomfortable. When I wear my matching satin slip & robe at home I just feel more productive, chic, and hot AF. I want to make note that I don’t do this for anyone else but for me, myself, and I.
Now, let’s talk about how MAJOR they are becoming in everyday style. I am ecstatic that slip dresses are now acceptable to wear in public because a) you don’t have to wear a bra b) you don’t have to wear a bra (it’s THAT important to me) and c) you can style them a jillion different ways.
Here’s how to style the trend:
Alexa Chung is the epitome of effortless style. She is literally grabbing coffee and probably looks better than me on most days ending in “y”.
In another lifetime I dream of myself wearing a slip dress, donning sunglasses at night with a personalized bomber jacket and choker, always.
When you have a dress as delicate as this, you have to keep it simple. Lily is perfection.
This look is ANYTHING but basic with the layered white-T. Plus the matching duster jacket, thigh-highs, and mini bag? Too. Good.

Do I EVEN need a caption here? Excuse me while I pass out.
