|The sleeping uniform, more or less|
I have never really worn real pajamas -- plaid pants and button down tops. Nor have I ever done dressing gowns or shirts or chemises. It's all sweatpants and yoga pants and old t-shirts, cut-up or hole-ridden. All comfort, no style.
But on my path to making less, I've been thinking about what would make me feel luxurious and pretty underthings and sleepy things are at the top of the list. Really, who wants to look like this:
What I'm trying to mentally work out is how to get closer to the latter while feeling like the former?
I could get jiggy with something like this:
|From Free People, years ago|
- Fabric needs to be comfy and breathable -- knits would work or a drapey woven. Preferably wrinkle free.
- I'm always cold -- little shorts and short skirts may be too little to keep me warm (but I dream of tap pants!). Likewise, I don't want anything that looks funky when layered with a sweater or with socks.
- Rompers are out of the question. I may have to use the restroom on occasion.
- On the fence about loose A-line-y nightgowns that most likely will end up scrunched up around my armpits in the a.m. (I move a lot!)
But what about you? What do you wear to bed? Or: what would you wear around the house and to bed that would be both comfortable and stylish?
