Summer is certainly 'in bloom' with @InBloomLingerie - See what's new and enter to win a $50 Gift Card too!

This giveaway is sponsored by:

In Bloom By Jonquil Logo

Many of you know it has been 'love at first wear' ever since I discovered In Bloom by Jonquil, they are best known for their beautiful Bridal lingerie and peignor sets. If you watch the television series Hot in Cleveland, the character Joy Scroggs played by actress Jane Leeves happens to wear In Bloom Pajamas quite often. Her character Joy often wears many of the same in Bloom pieces I own. And my fellow 'truebies' aka fans of HBO television series True Blood will have also seen in Bloom being worn by one of the characters on the show as well!

Television Wardrobe Stylist's have discerning taste, they not only have to get a feel for the character to nail their style, but I'm sure how well the garments actually wear is an important factor on the set as well. I'm more in to Quality than Quantity myself and yes that includes my PJ's, if they are comfortable but don't wear well, what's the point?

For me my in Bloom Pajama sets have been the perfect marriage of form and function, because they have all worn incredibly well, they wash well, I haven't experienced the dreaded pillage on the PJ pants, and they are super comfortable, and many of the loungewear pieces could pass for beach wear and 'outside' wear without anyone even thinking they were PJ's (always a plus in my book).

When I think of PJ's and Loungwear I think of my 'chillax' time and there is nothing better than a good book to go with new PJ's right? Press on the banner below to do just that!




I don't have copies I can offer you yet Butterflies, but In Bloom is more than great PJ's, it's a BOOK too!  (Press on the banner above to purchase it directly at Amazon at a great price!) I'm working with the author to get hard copies of the book available for a giveaway on Ascending Butterfly soon!

Here is a teaser:

My name is Olivia Bloom and I. Am. Free.

I left for LA with everything I owned piled into my old Volkswagen and dreams of becoming a costume designer. Little did I know I’d wind up designing for a lingerie company—yeah, not sure how I landed this gig—and taken under the wing of two young Hollywood insiders. The fashion shows and parties were great, but life really got exciting when the seriously hottest lead singer of my favorite band started to fall for me.
 
How does someone like me, an ordinary girl from Pittsburgh, wind up in the arms of the world’s sexiest rock star—surrounded by celebrities, fashion, and music—and not be eaten alive? Berkeley is everything I've ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, but the paparazzi, the tabloids, the rumors, it's all getting a bit too crazy. My life has become every girl’s dream come true, if only I don’t blink and lose it all… 


I created this cute Polyvore board to showcase the 'Blue Grass Pajama' Set by in Bloom

On a Polyvore roll! This Polyvore board showcases the Blue Grass set from the back (look at the detail on the top with the cute lace racerback!) and I also featured the 'Riviera Tank' in Black which in my opinion you could even wear out over white jeans, such a cute 'right now' tank top!

WIN IT:

My Take:

Most often loungewear items are sold individually on in Bloom so I totally appreciated that the Blue Grass Pajama Set is sold as a pair. The Riviera Tank is absolutely gorgeous and it pairs up with all the bottoms perfectly and in my opinion you can totally get away with wearing it out as a top with jeans too. These were all definitely a hit for me!
