Amazon Nightgown: Get It While It’s Still In Stock

VTNF Picks
Until I heard Kate Kennedy describe it as “the garment of a pottery enthusiast with a trust fund,” I was having a hard time pinning down the best way to accurately detail the dress/mumu/coverup/caftan/large piece of fabric now known, for better or worse, as The Amazon Nightgown.
I’ve slipped it on more days then not this summer, and I must say, I DO get a lot of compliments whilst wearing this now-viral loungewear/daywear hybrid fitting of someone who at any moment may scream; “Fetch me another olive for my martini, Jeeves!”
More simply: I feel like a Poor Patricia Altschul™
Okay, so now that we’ve cleared that up, let’s get you into one of these things! Predictably, #bloggernation came THRU when they heard that the #amazoncoat of 2018 fame now has a rival, and are buying these things up faster than a faux palm branches at a Pier 1 end-of-summer sale. Below, I’ve rounded up where YOU can still get your hands on The Amazon Nightgown (as of 8/29 at 10 p.m.) and some lookalikes to shop, as well.
FIT SITCH: my only note is that it’s tight in the bust/chest area! I prefer the Small but the Medium worked fine for me as well! Perks of publicly wearing a nightgown, I suppose 🙂
P.S. If you work from home, you will LOVE this thing. A one-step styling process is not something I take for granted these days!

The Look for Less: Madison Boat Cruise Edition

VTNF Picks
Heading out on the boat this weekend? Shop these looks from Amazon Prime that can be #YoursByFriday!
My three golden rules for serving looks at sea:
– Bring a hair tie or headband, ALWAYS. It may be hard to believe in the cloud of humidity known as the District of Columbia, but boats are windy AF and a #hairnightmare. Keep scrolling for some cute ways to keep that mane out of your face.
– Also pack a jacket or wrap. Same principle here! It’s cooler on the water and by nightfall you want to be comfortably sippin’  a spritz — NOT shivering!
– Last but not least: remember coolers can be cute! Leave those clunky, plastic monstrosities on the shore — I’ve rounded up some adorable bags that keep those drinks cold, too.
