{October 23, 2008}   Cosy Up In Pyjamas This Winter

Pyjama Party

After moaning and groaning recently about the cold, damp and generally miserable winter we have ahead of us (although it does provide a good excuse to go shopping) – we thought that today we would focus on the more enjoayble aspects of winter – the cosy nights in……….and long lies in the morning!

Of course, in order to fully immerse yourself in this experience you require some comfy nightwear. This is where the Pyjamas come in. I remember as a child being forced to wear pyjamas by my mother and to be honest i hated them! – they were impossible to get comfortable in and i couldn’t wait to pull them off – It didn’t help that they were about three sizes too big for me with a pretty horrendous maroon Paisley Pattern finish. So, until recently i had reverted to sleeping in a long t-shirt – however, the aforementioned burst of cold weather has rendered this mode of nightwear impractical – and forced me into the pyjama market for the first time in ages.

My principal discovery is that there are now a great variety of materials and designs available – Checks, Satin, Teddy Bear and Floral Pyjamas seem to prevalent in the most popular ladies pyjamas this winter. It’s no wonder that there has been a recent craze for wearing pyjamas to do the morning shop, and working from home in pyjamas (Hello, Lily Allen). Anyway, Here are some of my favourite Pjs.

Stage 2 of the enjoyable winter day is the long lie. When peering out the window at a frost encrusted landscape there is very little motivation to get up and out. Lazing around the house could become quite chilly so therefore a robe (dressing gown) is essential. Forunately, robes are a simple item of clothing that remain stylish whatever the era – there is very little that can go wrong with dressing gowns. We love some of the patterened examples out there.

After you are kitted out in the appropriate bedwear you can then fully enjoy lazy winter days and nights. What is your preffered winter nightwear?
