New Pajamas

I like to have cute pajamas.

Why? Because I still consider myself newly married, and my dear husband deserves to have a cutely clad wife to fall asleep next to every night.

Unfortunately that doesn't always happen.

I have a few cute nightgowns, but after sleeping in them for a couple months they get all stretched out and pilled up, and it always kind of bugs me when those short little nightgowns get wrapped up around my waist (I'm a wild sleeper - I toss and turn alot).

After I start to feel frumpy in my nightgowns, I pull out the trusty shorts and t-shirt and start sleeping in those for a while.

Because, you know, shorts and a t-shirt are so much less frumpy.

I had started thinking I should pick up some new cute pajamas. I had been in the short and t-shirt phase for far too long. Well, I was shopping in Target yesterday and I spotted this:



These beautiful nightgowns that were on sale for $8.48! That's pretty cheap for good, cute pajamas, so I snagged one.

I tried it out over the weekend, and I think I love it. It looks lovely on. Can you say chic?

I was a little concerned that it might be uncomfortable to sleep in, because of how long it is, but I'm happy to report that I actually like it better than my short nightgowns.

It didn't get wrapped around my waist so much, like all the short ones tend to do. I guess it might be because it's longer, and has farther to go to get all the way up to my waist.

I was a little worried about not being able to stretch out my legs, but I really didn't feel constricted at all. If you like to practice some yoga moves while you're sleeping, like I sometimes do, the nightgown hiked up to just above your knees gives you adequate freedom to move.

Hooray for feeling like a Sleeping Beauty again!

Cute! Why do pj's have to be such a complicated process?!? I'm with you on not wanting to look frumpy, but you're absolutely right--I hate how the short night gowns ride up around my waist!

VERY cute! Hooray for cute pjs! I'm guilty too of going in and out of phases where I have nice nighties, then they get worn out, and I just don't go out and replace them, but you're right, our hubbies deserve it! Think I might poke around that department while I'm out shopping today! - Head on over to Windy Poplars and join in the fun of our Week of Confessions if you like! I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone better!

What a great deal! And that is a very cute nightgown. I love Target! TJ Maxx also has really cute pajamas for an okay price if you have one near you. We don't have a Target or a TJ Maxx close to us, which makes me sad. Although I've heard rumors of a Kohls coming in just 15 minutes from my house which makes me CRAZY excited. I bet they have cute pjs too :-)

I love cute nightgowns too! I wish my Target had had that sale.

I wish Target was as popular in WV as it is in MN...the one near me has a horrible selection. I was there a couple of weeks ago looking for a cute night gown too, and left a little disappointed.

you're adorable : ) i love that you wear cute pj's for your hubby---i definitely need to do that for mine. i recently discovered that HIS{way too big for me} boxers and t-shirt make the most comfy pj's and thats been my go-to for the past few weeks. i'm sure he just thinks it's soo sexy....
i'm busting out something cute tonight!! : )

cute! I had the same problem with nightgowns until recently (they would get all hiked up around my chest and all twisted) I found a couple that had drawsrings around the waist so they at least stay down to my waist, I love it! It's been so nice not to wake up a hot mess all tangled in my pajamas and the sheets!
