On the Ninth Day of a Feminine Christmas
Are you warm enough? I know. Me either. So I bought a classic set of pajamas in merry tartan similar to the ones above.
I think plaid is beautifully classic but when I was a young miss, I would have screamed if my mother tried to get me into what I would have considered to be "boys pajamas". Let my brothers wear the red and green flannel pj's as well as the lasso-wielding cowboy-printed ones. I only wanted long nightgowns with frills and ribbons. Please!
But the older I get, the warmer I want to be in winter, especially during the Christmas season, when the desire to be cozy sets in.
I'm not saying abandon your silk nightgowns or your pretty summer nities...you will reach for them again. But there is something wonderfully reassuring about slipping into soft and warm menswear-inspired pajamas on a cold winter solstice night.
Would you agree?
