When it comes to this time of the year I feel the cold at night. And although my husband would like me to sleep lightly clothed, I just can not do it. I need to be tucked in, snuggled up and toasty warm.
But it’s hard to find PJ’s that I like. I am not a fan of boxy flannelette jammies with floral or animal prints, and I’m not a nightie kinda gal. Waffle knit pants, while comfortable, are a little too clingy for my liking and onesies, well, let’s just say that if I even purchased one of those monstrosities, let alone tried to enter the bedroom wearing it, we’d likely be heading for a divorce. hahaha.
These Body Long John pants from Cotton on Body are my new favourites when it comes to nighttime. Because they look a little like trackies, they can double for loungewear aka: Netflix suitable attire in the living room. And if I don my PJ’s once I’ve done the dishes and the kids are in bed, I can simply peel myself off the couch following a binge of Friday Night Lights (or whatever the current fave TV show is), brush my teeth, wash my face and climb into bed without having to undress at 10pm by which time it’s gotten even colder. Made from comfortable soft cotton, these pants are so good I got them in two colourways – the navy & white and the grey & white.
When it comes to a PJ top, I also struggle to find something I like. This long sleeved tee is made from thick plush cotton which is warm enough even without a singlet underneath. And with a slogan like that, how could I resist it? It’s simply perfect for this stage in my life (and I suspect yours too!). I can’t find it on the website any longer, but you may be in luck if you head into your local store.
Head to the Cotton On Body website to shop these looks, or in to your local store.
