The Range: For the Love of Pajamas

At some point, after Kyle and I started dating, I stopped wearing pajamas.  Boyshorts and a t-shirt became my uniform.  But last month, I bought these wonderfully soft Nordstrom pajamas that I’ve been wearing non-stop.  And I am never going back.

I had forgotten the simple, sumptuous pleasure of slipping into a cozy pair of pajamas.  The comfort of feeling ready for bed.  It’s one of the simple joys of childhood.

Also wearing real pajamas separates your daytime life from your sleeping life.  Washing my face, putting my phone away, turning the lights low, and slipping into real pajamas has given me a bedtime routine that (to my surprise) seems to have made falling asleep easier.  It’s like a mental invitation to be ready for bed.

Want to bring real pajamas back into your life?  Or just buy a few new pairs for 2019?  Here are a few pairs that I love.  And if you want more choices, check my Shopstyle page for more styles (including some fun holiday picks).

      This. I bought these (Moonlight I think?) for my post-partum self since with the buttons they were easy to nurse in and now that we’ve finally weaned are just normal PJs.

    I sweat so much when I sleep and wash them so often they get so ratty so quick. I think I’ll stick to my free race tshirts and old shorts 🙂

      Wash them on delicates with a product called Biz. It’s a dream for getting out sweat.

    While J Crew has been spotty lately for both quality and style, these pajamas I can attest are THE BEST. I have them in every color and they last. They are comfortable, stylish and Abra, I completely concur, as a fellow insomniac they HELP ME SLEEP. Even though I really don’t understand why lol.

    But don’t the legs ride up? That’s why I stopped wearing pajamas. I can’t seem to stand crawling into bed and getting comfy to have to move to get the openings of the pants back to where they should be on my legs.

      I’ve been wearing the Nordstrom Lingerie ones. The fabric is so soft, even if they do ride up, I don’t really notice. With the cotton poplin ones I do.
