Working from home for me (before, during, and eventually after the pandemic) usually means sweats or leggings. Or let’s be really real here, last night’s pajamas. One evening I slept in a beautiful nightgown and just did not want to take it off the next day. It was so lovely! So, I paired it with a beautiful wire-free lace bralette and wore it for Zoom calls as if it were an elegant slip dress. I threw a cardigan over the silky material and no one was the wiser that I was working in my nightie! That inspired this look for the Out on the Range photo series. I took one of the most beautiful nightgowns from Rya, added in a contrasting lace bralette from Fleur’t, and accessorized.
This look is more country (hello, I’m in an actual cow pasture) but you can jazz up your look or even wear something like this to a high end event. Consider wearing a velvet blazer or belted cardigan over a silky nightgown, and pairing it with heels or dressy ankle boots. You can also wear white sneakers and a loose sweater for a Parisian streetwear look. Get creative!
Fun fact: I was SO excited to shoot with some cows and it turns out the cows and I have a mutual distrust and healthy respect for the other. They are BIG and leave some big *ahem* poops. So walking through this pasture was a bit of an adventure itself. Our team had to be extra careful. And the closer the cows and I got to each other, the more hesitant we each got. Turns out they can smell a city girl a mile away, and I can smell them, too. Ha!
Enough about the cows. Enjoy this look and get to shopping!

Shop This Look Featuring: Rya & Fleur’t
I think I’ve worn this bralette in 10 colors. For real! It’s so pretty and comfortable and fun to show off. Though it doesn’t have adjustable straps, it does have a fair amount of stretch and is sewn in a way that can offer some support for most sizes. The relaxed look is so in right now, anyway! You get to decide what shape you want for your bust – always. I was so pleased to let this bralette show through the daring back of this nightgown. The blue contrasts with the light pink of the nightgown, and compliments the hints of blue in the floral embroidery. *chef’s kiss* Try it for yourself and wear it indoors, or out!
