Loungewear and PJ’s with Elle Apparel and Skirt As Top // Stretch Yourself

This series is sponsored by Baby Lock. For over 40 years,  Babylock has been dedicated to the love of sewing by creating machines for sewing, embroidery, quilting and serging – all with ease-of-use, high quality and a touch of elegance.


Knits are so soft and stretchy that they beg to be slept in and lounged about in. That’s really the reason why I grab my knits before most anything else–they can’t be beat when it comes to comfort. Our wonderful guest posters today are covering loungewear and PJ’s,

Head over to Elle Apparel to see Leanne’s striking tribal slouch cardigan (that print!! Only “loungewear” in the sense that it’s super comfy;)
