Old Navy Chemise $11.99-$20.00

In college, my lounge/study wear consisted of various pairs of sweat pants and tanks. Four years after graduation, I still wear my beloved white cotton sweat pants when lounging around the house. The have so many holes and stains that every time I wear them at my parents’ house, my mom puts her best effort into repairing them and pleading with me to throw them away.

A few months ago my friend Krista extended me a much needed introduction to the concept of a house dress. A house dress is a dress that is short and light weight, but a little more substantial than lingerie. It’s the perfect outfit for warm summer nights in. While it’s not something that you would wear outside of the house, you can definitely wear it during movie night with your closest girlfriends.

The house dress is basically the sexy single girl version of ratty sweatpants and a tank. Just because its more sophisticated, doesn’t mean it has to be more expensive. Old Navy has some really cute ones for under $20.

    Those are much cuter than mu-mu’s or however you spell it. Although I recently went over to my boyfriend’s mom’s house and she was wearing the cutest mumu! It was from the 70s and kind of looked like those embroidered Mexican dresses. KInd of funny 🙂

  2. that’s really pretty dress.

  3. i’m never throwing out my ratty guy sweats from American Apparel. they literally fall down, have huge holes and i think i’d be hard pressed to find a less attractive look, but to me, they’re perfect. perhaps the next time i have girlfriends over though, i’ll consider these adorable options from Old Navy.
