Are you enjoying a hot cup of coffee as you read this post? I get a lot of comments that most of you read my blog, while you are drinking your coffee, tea, or something else. Now, I want you to look down, and tell me what you are wearing. Don’t be Jake from State Farm and say, “Khaki’s!” hahahaYou’re going to just love this post. We are going to talk about sleepwear. Fashion is everywhere, even in the bedroom. Are you married, have a significant other, or do you live by yourself? It really doesn’t matter, you SHOULD look nice no matter what.
I remember a story that someone told me about their mother. Her mom always wore a flannel gown that was so old, it was almost see through. If you have ever worn flannel, then you know as it is rubbed, the material gets thinner and thinner. You can well imagine the spots on the gown that got the most wear. She had plenty of other gowns, but would always pull out this old ratty gown. One night, my friend and her brother, decided that gown had to go, they had “seen” enough. After a lot of playing, tickling, and cavorting, the gown was in shreds. Her mom would laugh and laugh over this story, it was one of her favorite memories.
Years ago, I admit I had been guilty of wearing “stuff” I wouldn’t even put in a yard sale. I can’t believe I subjected Joe to those outfits. It was like, “I’m just going to bed, no one will see me.” I forgot all about the one person that WAS going to see me. I looked in the mirror one day, as I was leaving the bedroom, and thought how dowdy that person looked. I went that day and changed that.
Just like the mom in the above story, I had plenty of nice pajamas, but I would throw on a pair of shorts with holes, and a t-shirt that was stained or had holes too. Are you disappointed in me? In the winter, my go-to look was not any better, it consisted of leggings or yoga pants and a long sleeve top. When I would wake up, I threw on a long robe (to the floor) that was velour and dark mauve.
Bertha and I went to a woman’s club seminar one weekend, and we had to room with a lady that we only knew in passing. We picked her up, and she rode with us the for the 2 hour drive. She was really nice, and we felt comfortable rooming with her. Later that night, she went into the bathroom to change for bed. Bertha and I were already in bed, and we both were shocked when she came out of the bathroom. She had on Lingerie!!! I am talking about the frilly chiffon type lingerie of the 1950’s. I talked to a lady who had to room with her a month ago, and I had to ask if she wore the lingerie. The lady started laughing and said she did. Lol! This woman put us all to shame. I still do not wear lingerie, but I no longer look like a rag-muffin when I go to bed.
This is my idea of what you should wear in the summer months, if you want to wear shorts. How cute are these? This is still just a top and a pair of shorts, but I don’t see stains, rips, or holes. Instead, I see sweet, cute, and a tad sexy.
If you are not a fan of the two piece short set, then how about a gown? These are cute and comfortable. If you HAVE to go to the store in your pajamas, these at least could pass for a dress. Haha These are modern, and NOT a bit frumpy. These are also very affordable, you don’t have to spend a fortune to look nice. You have no reason to keep wearing those old rags. Lol!
Wearing Plus size is no reason not to look adorable. I love these cute little gowns!
This is one of my favorite looks for the winter. It is an oversized sleep shirt, but it looks like you are sleeping in your husbands button-up shirt. I think this is super sexy. Am I strange?
And for those of you who are saying, “I would freeze in those things,” here is what you should consider wearing. Your arms are covered, your legs are covered, and they button up for ease in putting on. BUT, they still look nice and cute. I have a couple pairs of this type pajamas. One pair is satin, and one is knit. I even took the solid black knit pair and had it monogrammed with my initials . Lol!
The moral of the story is, you have no excuse for not looking nice, even when you sleep. Take a few minutes and go through your pajama drawer. Get rid of anything that is stained, ripped, or looks like it came over in the ark. Haha! Go shopping, and let me know what your husband thinks when you put on some new duds.
This has been a public service announcement. You can thank me later, I know your husband will. Lol!
