I’ve got pajamas and robes on my mind right now. More “responsible” and ethically made ones, of course 🙂
I usually wear “regular” clothes around the house and don’t wear pajamas to bed, so I’ve never really had a proper robe or a pair of pajamas, but at this point in my adult-hood, I am ready. I do have a robe: the Only Hearts organic cotton robe above, but it is strictly a warm-weather robe. It’s also not quite “sturdy” enough to bring for visiting family/traveling. I highly recommend it though, for a warm-weather robe; it’s held up beautifully (I never dry it) and serves its purpose.
Now though, I would like a longer, cold-weather robe, with larger front pockets. In fact, the Coyuchi waffle robe is in my cart at Amazon, but I was also toying with getting the Coyuchi linen/terry robe that Oprah named one of her favorite things. If Oprah loves it….
As I mentioned, I don’t wear pajamas, but during the winter months my arms get cold while I’m reading in bed, so I’ve been looking at long-sleeved pajamas to lay around the house in, and for reading in bed. They should also be appropriate for traveling and visiting family. I’m looking at some of these by Domi, which I can get with credits at Garmentory (if you use my referral link you’ll get a $20 account credit for opening a new account, and so will I), but they’re also available at Rodale’s.
What do you wear to bed? Do you wear pajamas and a robe around the house? or “regular” clothes?
