We are staying in, cooking hearty food and being very content about it. We have the heater on in our little cottage. The neighbor’s cat is snuggling on the couch. Harsha is watching soccer in bed. I didn’t want to use the over used H word but there it is – #hyggie ! Its a state of being, not products to buy – Amen to that thought.

ON LOUNGE CLOTHING

We dress up when we go to a wedding or a night out on town or to go dancing at a night club or for a party. To look nice for all the mostly strangers who don’t really matter. The most important people in my life are the ones I live with. I want to look nice for my family. I don’t want my husband to see me in sloppy clothing. Even sans the man in my life, I see presentable sleep wear as a luxury but an attainable one.

I don’t feel the need to own a lot of lounge/sleep clothing. Two sets of pajamas make my entire collection. One in navy blue and other in sky blue. They are enough. I have been wearing them everyday for a year and half now. They held up well with wash and wear ! I highly recommend them if you are looking for a pair. They are significantly more affordable during the thanksgiving sale if you can wait.

In the winter, I wear an old gray sweater on top and wool house slippers. I would like a pair of matching silk pjs in navy blue. But I don’t have the energy to hand wash my sleep wear. I also don’t want to spend that sort of money on pjs. But the idea of them – yes please ! A pair of pjs in flannel would be ideal for the winter. My mother has been taking tailoring lessons and wants to make my next pair.

No, I wont be trying the ‘pajama trend’ any time soon. Hopefully never.

Is lounge clothing blog-worthy ? I wont justify the need to make this post. Everyone should have a personal style diary and its special no matter what the internet says.  Style is a perspective and it needn’t be liked or popular or accepted or avant garde to make it valid.
