The things I want to look at or buy upon walking into a store have made a shift over the last 5 years or so. I’ve always wanted to have a cute apartment since I got my own back in Two-Thousand-I-Don’t-Want-To-Admit-How-Long-It’s-Been. Let’s just say, for a few (ahem) years, I have been mildly interested in home furnishings, but it would always take a back seat to a bar tab and “going out” clothes. Recently, however, I have gone to the home section of a store before even venturing through clothing. Going out clothes have not been purchased in eons – the last time I “went out” it took me almost an hour to find something to wear that didn’t look like I’m a kindergarten teacher stepping out of Gap. Now I won’t even buy a dress or skirt unless I can wear it to work (i.e. proper length). I buy workout clothes. I know. I can’t even believe it myself. Anywho, my point is, my interests have curved. One of my newest loves: PAJAMAS! I have had a love affair with pajama pants and shorts for as long as I can remember, but now I really have gotten into matching pajama sets. Stay with me, I know it sounds funny.
When I get home after work I can’t wait to wash my face, put my hair in a ponytail, and change into something comfortable. Who says your comfortable clothes have to be drab? I like my old T-shirts, but most of the time I’d like to be adorable. (It’s a character flaw.) Think of the things that you really need for comfort while sleeping as well. T-shirts get too hot at night and with the tossing I do it feels like a baby monkey is choking me when I wear a crew neck to bed. I like something breathable, and lightweight, also preferably not cloying. Remember, I flip over a lot. Here’s some of my recent favorites:
(Victoria’s Secret sleepwear) – Can you tell I really love the lace details on the edges of the fabric?
(J Crew Factory sleepwear) – Tell me that red & white number isn’t to die for. And red piping on a baby blue PJ set? Adorable.
(Nordstrom Rack sleepwear) – Once again, lace details on the edges of the fabric. The pretty pastel colors and feminine pieces are classic.
Other favorite places to look for PJs are: Old Navy, Forever 21, Etsy.
