We went shopping in the little tourist town of St. Jacobs. No one would guess these pinstripe palazzos are actually pajama pants. I’ve never worn them as pajamas even though they are 100% cotton and 100% comfortable.
I bought them about 12 years ago with the intention of wearing them as stylish lounging wear and realized they were fine for going out too. Worn with my Elisa Cavaletti shirt makes me feel classy.
Shirt: Elisa Cavaletti (made in Italy)
Necklace: Star Store on Whidbey Island
Pinstripe PJs: Jacob Lingerie (Canadian store)
Sandals: made in Italy
A Slow Fashion Outfit
The only thing new is my necklace, everything else I’ve had for years. Having said that, I did buy five things on this shopping excursion, from small businesses: a pink scarf, leggings, non leather sandals, pink tulips and a puzzle game (that I had as a child) for my grandchildren to play when they come over.
Jacob was one of my favourite Canadian stores. The company was founded in 1977, with over 200 stores nationwide at its peak. Sadly, there are only 5 stores left now, part of the reason is “international retailers into the Canadian market, including H&M and Zara.”
Then and Now
I like this outfit as much now as I did then.
