Recently, I was doing an informal interview about being a woman in today’s society. One of the questions was “when do you feel prettiest?” and the answer popped into my head immediately – right before bed.
I stopped to ponder this immediate reaction – right before bed? Seriously, Christine? You have no makeup on. But much to my surprise, it is true. I always go to bed with a fresh, clean face, soft, brushed hair and pretty pajamas. Every. Single. Night.
If you make one small change towards a refined lifestyle this week, let it be pretty pajamas. Need more convincing? Read on…
Pretty pajamas don’t have to cost a lot. One of my favorite nightgowns came from Target, and other inexpensive retailers like H&M or Old Navy have cute designs as well. Also, pajamas go on sale quite often, and you can almost always find something lovely on the clearance rack.
Pretty pajamas are just as comfortable as sweatpants. In fact, there is nothing in my closet more comfortable than my purple satin night gown. Or my stretch jersey classic men’s pajama set. Or the adorable tap pants and tank top set I got for my birthday.
Pretty pajamas make you feel pretty. Honestly, try it – dig out something pretty (
even especially if its only you who sees it!) to sleep in tonight. Brush your hair, wash your face, light a candle and climb into bed. How do you feel? Chances are, you’ll feel refined, luxurious, and very pretty.
