“Oh, how to make PJs work-able! I love to be comfy in every situation: whether I am running from casting to casting, meeting with a new client, or going on date night. These pants and top combo are awesome because they’re so versatile.”

“I’d wear it during the day with ballerina flats or slippers, to work with low heels and a blazer like shown in this image, and at night with nice sandals and a sexy leather jacket.”

Look 2: Romantic Applique

“I love dresses that aren’t bodycon and skin tight. Yes, showing your curves is awesome, but I don’t like to have to think about sucking my tummy in or standing straight or any silly things like that, all the time. Especially, when at work!”

“This dress is comfortable, yet sexy, because of the length and feminine details in the front. Perfect fit for a farmer’s market walk, a day in the office, or a girl’s night! I love the flower details, the warm colors help the complexion and make the dress special.”

Look 3: Bold Meets Comfort

“This skirt is awesome. I love the print and the material. Super soft and comfy. I almost want to make it a pillow case and sleep on it – is that bad?”

“The classic shape is contrasted by this crazy print, which screams ‘That girl is bold!’

“I love playing with volume: tight on the bottom and a flowy top. Talking about tops, that one is a must! Skirt, jeans, leggings, shorts, literally anything would work with it!”

“I am very much into boots and I think it elevates the outfit. Now, if you have a more conservative workplace, slip-ons or low heels would be great too.”

Look 4: One-and-Done

“I like to wear funky shoes – I chose those star print ones to give that dress a bit of a quirk!”

Look 5: Bright and Breezy

“This dress is a perfect back-to-school dress. Cute color, shiny fabric, and this awesome sexy bow that makes the whole difference.”

“The color flatters every skin tone and the shape is a perfect fit for most. My advice would be to grab one size up (I’m wearing the 1X) just so the dress doesn’t stick to your hips area.”

“Bare legs and boots or with thick tights in later in the year, it’s versatile and will always bring some colors to the coldest days.”
