Cutest Pajamas of the Season

You may not be able to control what you do in your sleep but luckily you can control how you look while you sleep. Whether it’s Christmas morning, vacation, girl’s night or a sexy sleepover, let your pajamas be just one more opportunity to make your life more aesthetically pleasing. Think that’s unnecessary? I don’t. Think about the look of one of your favorite characters in a movie. For me when I dream of a fantasy world it’s Sofia Coppola‘s Marie Antoinette. You think the Queen of France would ever climb into bed with her king wearing her ratty old college sweatpants? Not a chance. So toss out those frumpy duds and slip into something more pleasing this season. Here are some cute pajamas that you certainly need.

Fancy Bum

We all have those days where we just want to feel cozy, cute and surrounded by soft things without taking the time to get ready.  My girlfriends and I joke that our dream is to just live in cashmere and fur blankets. I guess it’s how we imagine celebrities would relax. But why not pretend I’m just as fancy?

I typically don’t like to wear sweats in public, so if I am going to (and it will usually only be on a Sunday), I like to find ways to dress up the look a bit. My go-tos for these lazy days? Beanie (so I don’t have to do my hair), oversized sweater, cool joggers, and fun sneakers… topped off with a fur coat (or faux fur!). So maybe fur with sweats seems ridiculous. But so what? It’s fun to be over the top.

Where To Shop: First Impressions (Lafayette Hill, PA)

This store holds a very special place in my heart because it is the one place I was able to find unique pieces beginning in high school. Living in an area where most people follow the same trends, it is truly exciting to find a gem like this that offers a great array of clothing and allows dressing creativity to flourish. The owner Pam has an unbelievable eye for buying and is definitely a kindred spirit of mine. Bottom line, I can’t go back to Philly without stopping here to shop. It’s sort of like my version of “Cheers” where everybody knows your name.

Now check out the three looks I put together straight from the racks!

Stud Muffin

I love me some black jeans. Give me skinnies, give me rips, give me studs, I’ll have them all. I love the embellishments on this pair. They’re not your typical studs and the placement is fun and different. I was going to wear them with a pair of black booties but I figured if I was going to draw attention towards my feet, I was going to draw attention to my feet.

Lumbersexual

Have you heard the term “Lumbersexual” being tossed around? According to the Urban Dictionary, Lumbersexual is ” A Metro-sexual who has the need to hold on to some outdoor based rugged-ness, thus opting to keep a finely trimmed beard”. So this look is sort of the total opposite because I am a female choosing to hold onto her femininity by opting to wear a finely shaped navy fur vest with her rugged outfit. Bet that one got you thinking…

Where To Shop: Sheridan Square (Merion, PA)

Shopping at boutiques is great because it is a much more intimate experience than shopping at a department store. But shopping at a boutique that is run by lovely sister-in-laws with impeccable taste is really great. Sheridan Square is filled some seriously cool and cozy pieces. The clothing is high-end and unique. Looking through the racks I found main stream brands mixed with some artsier labels and I couldn’t get enough. Throw in some awesome jewelry and great energy and you’ve pretty much nailed the essence of this store.

Check out the three looks I put together straight from their racks!
