Pretty PJ’s

Going to bed is very serious business.  You brush your teeth, wash your face, and might even jump in the shower before hitting the sheets.  This, at least, is my normal nightly routine prior to putting on my (not-so-attractive) pajamas and turning on Watch What Happens Live, of course.

About those not-so-attractive pajamas… it’s pretty bad people!  Typically, my PM uniform consists of big, baggy, old sweatpants (which I most likely stole from my brother years ago or more recently from my husband) and a huge over-sized t-shirt that either says on it the words Facebook (where my brother works), WXRT (the Chicago radio station that my brother used to work at), Kappa Kappa Gamma (my college sorority) or the White Sox (my favorite baseball team).  Obviously I’m ridiculously comfortable but this attire does nothing for the eyes and on top of that, doesn’t make me feel very cute in the least – something I’m a firm believer that we all should feel around the clock, 24/7. Right?

Or wrong?? I know some people who would tell me that it doesn’t matter what you wear to bed because you’re not going to see anyone anyways and there’s no need to feel cute because you’re literally just sleeping in bed!! Yadayada and you know what? I’ve never had any qualms about my ugly pj’s until lately, when I just feel blahblahblah upon prepping for my beauty sleep!

And so the quest for new, cuter, more figure-flattering pajamas has begun!
Take a look below at these adorable sets that I am totally coveting at the moment…

    When I do sleep in clothes it would be a two piece something with short sleeves. So maybe something like the purple. However I sleep on my stomach so the buttons probably would not be too comfortable!

    I usually wear grunge clothes but I love the idea of getting cute pajamas!

    I’m all about the comfort when I go to bed too! Not always the most attractive… but I recently got a pajama set from Victoria’s Secret so it’s not AS terrible anymore! Love your blog, been reading for a while now. I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award on my blog! Check it out for more details!

    I really think it depends on how I feel that night. But, I really like the PJ’s that look like a romper! Great Post!

      Thanks KT! And I couldn’t agree more… totally depends on how you’re feeling that night. Since posting this, I’ve bought a few of the sets and I already feel like a sexier and happier me before hitting the sheets! HA!

    […] for my husband and I (although he doesn’t know it yet)…. it’s going to consist of cozy pajamas, a homemade dinner, and a stay-up-all-night TV show marathon.  Here’s what’s on my […]
