Fashion Misappropriation


Hello lovelies, I hope that you have had a great start to your week? These last few days I have been working away and studying for my law exams. So to try to maximize my time and improve my concentration I have been trying to stay at home, in my room, focusing on the task at hand! So apart from the work and dreaming about my next holiday destination, I have been spending a couple of days lounging round drinking coffee and sitting in my PJs and it’s quite unbelievable how quickly I have gotten used to “slouching”.


So when my friends asked me to meet them in town, the thought of leaving my snuggly PJs behind and squeezing into some stone cold jeans just seemed too much to bear (plus I was a bit late)…so I committed the ultimate Fashion sin and wore something in a way which it wasn’t intended to be used…I decided to go into central in my Tartan PJs. I guess the secret of my “Free the Pajama” look was making sure no one doubted for a second that they were not proper trousers. So I decided to wear them with black heels, a blue denim shirt and a jacket to really make the trousers more formal. The bold tartan pattern and colors really gave my outfit an original twist and it was great being able to find some original trousers that my friends hadn’t seen before from the bottom of my draw.

Let me know what you think and also if you have ever worn your pajamas out of the house/to work/to see friends! If not pajamas, then have you ever fashion misappropriated another household item,  say like a blanket or a curtain? ❤ Abi xxx

I am an ex-professional tennis player and have just graduated from King's College in London. I share daily fashion outfits and stories of my travels and the tour. Every story has a beginning, but I will start mine here, at the start of something big. For us this was a journey of a lifetime, where dreams were made and broken, where friendships were cherished and torn apart. We lived and still live the life of aspiration and we tell the tale of victories and defeats that come with growing up at such a young age on the brink of greatness and fame. In our world youth, beauty and riches combine. We trained hard but played even harder. Our parties’ were and always will be legendary, our travels exotic and carefree. We were becoming stars. My Girls On Tour showcases street style looks, avant-garde fashion, new designers, fashion shows as well as travel stories and adventures. A fun window into the glamorous world of a professional tennis player turned fashionista, this is the place for wonderlust and fashion inspiration. Instragram @abigirlx Twitter @Abigailroyston

  1. Good luck on those law exams! 🙂 Now, I’m remembering all those olde English cases we read in law school.

    I am sure that the Stuart tartan has never looked better! (I think it’s Stuart) As we say, res ipsa loquitur.

    1. THank you Tom! I have have a few more exams coming up soon. I am not sure what tartan it is or if it actually belongs to a clan, but I do hope it is Stuart because that would make it a lot cooler 🙂 I hope you are having a great start to your week and that you don’t have too much snow where you are?
