Quilted and Cozy

Now that the colors of fall have faded and wintry weather is ultimately upon us here in the Mid-Atlantic region, I really want nothing else than to stay inside and drink tea.  Before it was the norm to put on some sweatpants and a hoodie to keep warm, ladies would wear house coats over their lingerie or PJs while getting ready for the day or winding down at night.  I decided to start looking for a nice and comfy housecoat so that even if I can't kick my yoga pants habit, I can at least look somewhat put together at home.

I recently found an excellent vintage house coat, and there is nothing like it for keeping you toasty and glamorous around the house.  This one is reversible, with a quilted royal blue side and a green gingham pattern on the other.  This is just the thing for the season and I'm happy it's getting a new lease on life.

  1. Gorgeous housecoat! I really like the gingham trim. What a sweet, feminine detail. I love housecoats, too, and wear mine often (ditto for my vintage bed jackets). They're perfect for our long, icy Canadian winters.

    Big hugs & happy start of December wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

    1. Thank you! It's actually a standard bathroom mirror that we removed, and then I made an art deco pattern with masking tape and sprayed it with "frosted glass" spray-paint. It's really added a 1920's touch to the room!
