Pick Pretty Pajamas: 30 Days to Gorgeous Mom Style

Eloise Nella top

To me, this is actually the beginning of 2015. Yesterday didn’t count because it was a holiday. Sure, you could just sail through the weekend and start on Monday, but that would put you 5 days behind, style-wise. And who has that kind of time when looking even cuter is just around the corner. So here’s the plan. Every day, you’ll find one, totally doable action step to upgrade your mom style for 2015.

Today, I’m going to start with something that gets far too little attention – pajamas. Even though only the family sees them. Especially because only the family sees them. I grew up wearing pretty, feminine nightgowns and pajamas, and never fell into the t-shirt-and-boxer phase. I think the clothes you wear in your downtime, around those who are closest to you, say a lot about how you feel and who you are in relation to them, and I want my girls, and especially my husband, to see me as glamorous and girly, not as someone who has given up on life. Sure, the sassier pieces, those that could be dubbed “lingerie”, may have been put aside for a while, and only occasionally make an appearance, but we can still look cute lounging at home.

The first step? Get rid of the loud flannel. The cutesy prints. The serviceable but sad mismatched pieces that pass as pajamas. And replace them with something cute. Really cute. Here, for a little inspiration, 10 of the prettiest pajamas I’ve found.

    I’m with you on this. I could use a change in my nighttime attire… However, I live in cold weather. All but one (the first) of these options won’t work for me unless I plan on freezing instead of sleeping. Any example ideas for one who needs warmth AND cuteness? PS – I like the price point of #1 too, as long as the quality is there.
