SATURDAY MORNING COFFEE DATE WITH THE GURLS

Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is sitting in her kitchen in Soma pajamas

Happy Saturday! This is my usual Saturday morning attire, and I figured that most of you were dressed in something similar. So, since so many of you read my blog with a cup of coffee, I thought that we could have a drink together this morning. I’ll give you a few minutes to grab your beverage, I’m drinking Chai tea, and then let’s talk pajamas.

What I’m wearing: leopard print kimono-sleeve robe // Sleep Tank // fold-over pants // Blue Fog fuzzy slippers

This tiny breakfast table is my normal perch as I sip my tea and look out the window. Lucy is my shadow, and she doesn’t seem to mind that I don’t have on makeup and haven’t combed my hair yet. There is a reason that you gurls call me real and authentic, what other blogger comes to you looking like this? Lol!

I love those memes that say, “I woke up like this” and you can see a full face of makeup and curled hair. Lol! Maybe they have a hairdresser and makeup artist that visits in the middle of the night instead of elves that make shoes. Anyway, today is Kentucky Derby Day, so I’ve got to get some clothes on, throw on a big hat, and go fix myself a mimosa since I am not a fan of mint juleps. lol!

Some of you have asked about my new house, and why we have moved. Actually, we haven’t moved and don’t have plans to move any time soon. We are just spending the weekends at our new house for now, and we’ll see what happens in the future.

Our house is in the flood zone and is slated to be bought out through a government program. The time frame is between 18-24 months, and we decided to go ahead and purchase a house to take advantage of the low-interest rates. Since my son and grandchildren live next door to me, their house is also slated to be purchased. Everything is in holding mode right now, and we will decide in the future which house we live in, which we sell, and where my son will end up if he also has to move.

But, since we are spending the weekends at this house, we are slowly bringing a few things at a time instead of moving everything at once. As you can see, my coffee mug is a Christmas mug. I didn’t have any plates, cups, or silverware, so I am running to the store later today and grabbing a few things.

I guess all of you actually came to the blog looking for fashion, so let me tell you that pajamas are fashion choices also. You spend almost half of your life in bed, so torn shorts and dirty t-shirts should NOT be what you are wearing. I have to admit that I was guilty of the torn shirt and t-shirt sleepwear look, but I upped my sleepwear game years ago, and Joe is much more appreciative.

I love the Cool Nights pajamas from Soma. It took me forever to take the plunge, but I’ll never go back. I have gone through my PJ drawer and ditched anything that isn’t from Soma, and have slowly been adding to my collection. I love this cool blue set, and I also have it in black.

The leopard print kimono-sleeve robe is a gorgeous print of pastel blue, pink, and gray. I thought it was so unusual, and I love that it just matches my Blue Fog pajamas. The Sleep Tank is soft and flowy, and perfect for sleeping. I could have worn a medium, but I didn’t want it to be snug at all, so I chose the large instead. The fold-over pants are in the same material, and I am wearing a size medium in those.

You might remember seeing me wearing the Blue Fog fuzzy slippers the other day when I forgot to take them off. But, in my defense, they did match my outfit. Lol!!!

I also recently got the outfit below, and it is gorgeous!

So, who are you pulling for in the Kentucky Derby?

    Love your blog! I would never let my husband pick out my clothes because I am too hard to fit.
    Love the Soma outfit but I have a problem with buying sets because I wear 2 different sizes, a medium bottom and usually a large top. This is so frustrating!
    You are an inspiration!

    I have really embraced the no makeup look throughout the pandemic. Missing lipstick though! You look great with or without. Just recently signed up for your posts and am really enjoying them. As a woman of 66 it’s important to find someone who speaks to me! Thanks

    Beautiful no makeup look! That’s been my pandemic-stay-home look but I’ve been trying to make an effort lately w/eye liner & translucent powder to perk myself up 🙂 I have a pair of Soma sleep shorts (on sale), very comfy for summer!

    Very interesting about living in two houses! I was going to ask, when I saw the first picture, if that was your new house. It looks really gorgeous.
    And even though you don’t have make-up on and I’m appalled…hahaha, just kidding; you look beautiful, I love this “sleep ensemble!” I’m excited about trying their fabric. I have not tried Soma before.
    I’m usually cold in bed, so I normally don’t wear sleeveless, but I’ll give this a try. I’ve been gradually ridding my pj drawer too. I found some wonderful, soft pjs from Koolaburra by Ugg on QVC recently. I’m imagining these Soma ones are similar. I hope so! Thanks Tania…even though I’m reading this at 5p.m. and not over “coffee with the Gurls,” it’s so enjoyable!

    Yes, yes, yes for Soma! I have several of their short gowns and a couple of pj’s. Fabric does make a difference! I’ll have to check out the other blue you show! Can’t wait to see you in your Derby Hat!

    I love this post! Not for the pajamas, but all the other things you mentioned. And it’s funny. I am sitting at our cabin, and this year I have decided that it’s time to stop bringing all of my old clothes up here, and to pick out some extras that I love or buy some clothes to leave up here. We do plenty of socializing up here, and it’s casual, but I want to feel as presentable as I would at home! Enjoy furnishing the new place!

    Good morning Tania. You look great first thing in the morning, unlike some of those photos of celebrities without makeup. The pyjamas, robe and slippers are beautiful and I’m rethinking my sleepwear choices…I’m not quite into torn shorts and t-shirts but I’ve never spent much money on pjs.My little Yorkie Gus says hi to Lucy!

    I have heard of “cool pajamas” and wondered if they really work since I haven’t tried them. And…I never wear a necklace or bracelet to bed so you still look put together with your pajamas on!

    Hi Tania! I was so sorry to hear about your email lissa could of days ago with a darn plug-in causing it. If we lived closer, my husband is a Director of IT for a company here in Minnesota would definitely be available to help your situation. He is the kind of person who never gives up until he gets the project done (wrestle the difficulty until it says “I Give!) I don’t think I’ve ever met a computer issue he couldn’t fix. I do enjoy your stories about your Joe. They sound just like stories about my Joe. I have been cutting his hair for 35 years as of August. I don’t do anything fancy. A 3/4” guide on the clippers and cut all around his head, trim around the ears, sideburns and look for any stragglers. When I had surgery a couple of years ago, he decided to go to the barber shop. He gave instructions but they ended up tapering it to where the hair was a little longer on top and shaved tighter on the sides. We dubbed the cut “The Mushroom Cut.” Since then I have cut his hair no matter how much pain I’m in from chronic back pain. He cuts a lot himself by flipping his head upside down and just running the clippers all over to get all the hair to 3/4″. When he’s done all I have to do is trim the neck, around the ears, sideburns, and finish with a kiss. Then he goes to shower all that hair off. Sorry, long story. Our Joes sounds similar. Dry sense of humor. Maybe we will all get to meet someday. Good luck getting your email list put back together. My midnights wouldn’t be the same without it. (I’m in central time so I get the notice at midnight and I’m usually lying in bed, trying to find some sleep. Have a good weekend!
