My Style: One Small Step Up From Pyjamas

Zara Pom Pom Necklace Ella Cocos Tea Party

Marilyn Monroe believed diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but I actually think pyjamas are a girl’s best friend. Because, given the chance, who wouldn’t want to wear their PJs all day long? Of course, the sensible compromise would be to wear diamonds with your pyjamas, but sadly life isn’t one giant sleepover, and diamonds don’t grow on trees.

Jumpsuits, however, are basically glorified pyjamas, and this monochrome design is ridiculously comfortable. It has an elasticated waist (my idea of heaven) and a slightly over-generous amount of fabric around the midriff, which gives it a bit of a ‘big lunch or baby bump’ vibe. So far I’ve worn it with heels and a cropped jacket for drinks with friends, with Converse sneakers and a leather jacket for a day of errands, and casually thrown over a white T-shirt whilst working from home. It’s easily one of my best summer buys!

Printed Jumpsuit Ella Cocos Tea Party

Kylie and I shot these pictures a few weeks ago, just as the Kim and Kanye wedding drama had started to die down. It felt like the circus was finally over and we could all enjoy a moments peace, but then we made a wrong turn on Brick Lane and came face-to-face with Yeezus himself. There is no escape. And now that Kanye poses Spiderman’s superpowers the world as we know it may come to an end. You have been warned…

    I have a pair of slinky geometric pyjama pants that I bought recently, and I am having to limit wearing them. They are ridiculously comfy, go with just about everything and still look chic- perfect!

    I have those Flash Trash bracelets, so cute. Where is the colourful beaded one from, Ella?

    (and the kitty pumps look perfect with the jumpsuit.)

      The one above the watch is Claire’s from last season. The pink and orange beaded ones are also Claire’s.

      • Abby

        Thanks. Even better, I only have tiny wrists so Claire’s stuff is usually okay on me.

        • cocos_tea_party

          I have the same issue. Claire’s is cheap and cheerful too.

          • Abby

            Ended up caving and getting one of the Lucy Folk bracelet s and have worn it pretty much non-stop, so I figure it’s worth it! Getting lots of compliments on it too, so yay. 🙂

  • Love this look Ella!x
