As I am sitting here hanging out in my favorite garden gnome jams, I am thinking about how as much as I love to play dress up, I am alllll about the comfort zone! (And don’t I know it this week! It’s Mini Maven’s Spring Break and we are lappin’ it up like a bowl full of warm milk!) As I have stated over and over and over again…… I am a collector of many things. One of the things I collect is pajamas. And not just *any* pajamas, but ones that I think suit my personality. ::grin:: I am a ginormous fan of Nick & Nora Pajamas. You can find these just about anywhere; including superstores like Target — or Tar-jay, as so many of us like to say when we fancy sounding fance-say. Of all the topnotch PJs out there, Nick & Nora make the most cozy, comfy, snuggled-down jammies on the market. I kid you not! (And I kid you more often times than not, so…)
I LOVE pajamas. If it were up to me, they would be suitable outerwear and daily attire. I mean, c’mon, folks…! Life is short! Don’t you all enjoy being free to flow and having free-flow? Oh, you knooow you do! I have a good friend, of whom I call DEElicious, who is cringing right now, and chewing her nails down to bloody stumps, because she abhors when people go out in public in their jams, but I can’t deny that I am guilty as charged. Book me, Dano!
Though Nick & Nora pajamas are my utmost favs, I also adore Frankie & Johnny jams, as well as the wondrous invention & concept of PajamaGram. If you don’t know what I am talking about (click on the name), go check ’em out! Who doesn’t like receiving an excuse to go loosey-goosey and curl up under the covers with a pint of Ben & Jerry‘s Chubby Hubby while watching Downton Abbey? Name someone and I will tell you, straight-up, they are no sleepover sista of mine!
But it’s not just pajamas that I go gaga over, it is also fuzzy robes & fuzzy slippers! It takes a special breed of man to love me, because I am still sportin’ my adult version of Underoos — and with no apology! I’m all about the playful-cozy, and no amount of years tacked onto my brittle bones are going to take it out of my spirit. Though I like to get gussied up — prim & in my Sunday best — I will one day create my comfy commune in cotton zzz zzz zzz colony. I plan to inform & revolutionize! I’ll organize the march if you paint the picket signs. #sticktongueout (This was about 98% the lure to the all-women’s liberal art college, by the way. I could roll out of bed and go straight to orientation. #primo (DEElicious just fainted.))
All jest left to the jester… Down below I have posted some photos of my best loved jams, robes, and fuzzy character slippers. Not that I don’t greatly enjoy my sexy nighties & hubba hubba, eyes-pop-out-of-head-like-Pepé-Le-Pew ensembles, but you have to know me to know that my jammies really make a whole lot of sense. ::smile:: I have pajamas of the most peculiar sort: cupcakes, Couture shoes, Cheshire Cat, Olive Oyl from Popeye, and even lobsters in Santa hats (yes, you read that right — I am a native Floridian, after all). Funny thing is: Even in coffee cup & egg pajamas, Darling Hotbuns chases me around the house like he’s bringing home the bacon. ::snort:: I guess it’s just all how you prepare it!?! ::winkwink::
Okay, yeah, I’ll stop before this gets uncomfortable.
All of my pajamas & accessories can be found online via the retailer websites, Amazon, and eBay for those that are from previous collections. And I staunchly suggest thinking of PajamaGram for your future special-occasion-gift-delivery needs. They even come in a happy little round hat box with a bow — just dandy!
Keep calm & DREAM on, Mavens!
