Just like that, a new month is here. January was so good that it was hard to see it go. The entire month felt like a dream- with an unexpected career accomplishment, promotion and new personal projects on the horizon. I can’t think of a better way to start a New Year. Now, onto February, which means, fashion week, a long holiday weekend, new work challenges and very little sleep.
I’ve never been a good sleeper. Four hours of uninterrupted sleep is a lot for me. Most nights, I’m lucky to squeeze in close to three hours. I may not be much of a sleeper, but I adore elegant sleepwear.
I love the tradition of bespoke menswear pajamas of the likes of Charvet or Jermyn Street. A custom fitting at Charvet is one of life’s little luxuries. Luxurious, lightweight cotton, traditional piping, pockets, a discreet monogram and an understated color palate of navy, pale blues and white, get me every time. Classic pajamas that are borrowed from the boys but tailored to fit a feminine frame are my favorites. Poplin has the masculine/feminine down to perfection.
Pajamas are perfect for curling up with a good book, burrowing in for movie night or lingering over tea and an early morning grapefruit… Always worn with a loose chignon or bun. Pure nonchalance. Over the years, I have amassed a collection of effortless and yet undeniably chic classic sleepwear. It all started as a childhood holiday tradition- coordinating pajama sets for Christmas Eve. Years later, a decadent pair of pajamas is still one of my favorite holiday gifts.
With the basics covered, a cheery Liberty Print pajama set is the perfect addition to my collection of sleepwear. My wardrobe consists of few prints, but the ones I do add are truly special. As a lover of textiles, Liberty Print always wins me over. Those archives and the meticulous printing process are the definition of heritage.
PS- If you have any sleep tips or rituals do share.
