What are YOU wearing?

It´s a relaxing day off and you´re about to sit down with a tea or a nice strong coffee and maybe a good book, the sun is shining outside.

What will you be wearing?

I will admit I haven´t put much thought into what I wear when I´m relaxing at home, but I do know that you feel better when wearing something that looks good as well as being comfortable. And I also know that I wouldn´t want to open the door in my current loungewear! It´s not very fancy, it’s washed out, shapeless and definitely not a matching set.

I was told about this fabulous loungewear brand Dote, perfect for those lazy days, in a stylish way. They offer everything from dressing gowns, slips, Pyjamas to cashmere knits. Sexy and feminine or that perfect boyfriend fit. It´s all about elegance and comfort, a perfect mix. They also have a quote on the website that I love, “ For those lazy lounge lizard days” perfectly put! This brand is already a favorite amongst the celebs such as Kate Moss, India Hicks and Lauren Laverne.

I love layers when I´m wearing loungewear, soft sheer fabrics matched with a rougher warm wool, usually because I´m cold and like to feel bundled up, and there are some really nice options at Dote. My favorite must be the Cashmere waterfall wrap and I would put this with the Harlow dress in modal jersey, perfect for a day or why not evening in with that special someone.

But I have a super soft spot for kimonos and long silky slip, you can find some beautiful long or short versions, it´s really hard to choose, and they are very reasonably priced so why not get more than one set?

If I would be going on an all girls stay somewhere I would probably be looking at wearing something like the China girl shorts with the Easy tank top topping it off with the Boyfriend cable cardi, will make the gossip filled eves comfortable and stylish. But on top of all this fabulously chic loungewear they also have things that can be worn out and away from the comfort of your couch.

For those moments when you want some fresh air and might want to sit on the patio of your summer cabin near the lake with your tea, you know that perfect movie looking cabin scenario we all dream about, you can put the Blanket Poncho and the Cashmere cable wrist warmers, on top of a pair of nice

Warm, comfortable and chic at the same time, is there any other way really?
