Ode to Pajamas from The Pajamanista

Well, kittens, at 50-somethin’ and post-mastectomy,

a swimsuit model I may never be, but pajama

couture/luxury sleepwear supermodel?

You can call me The Pajamanista.

Pajamas suit me and my lifestyle

at the moment, and if you read about my

jammie lovefest with Domi

(a luxury sleepwear brand),

you’ll know these organic cotton

babies made in India shared with me

have happily

become my summer uniform.

I live in them for the obvious reasons.

Comfort, of course.

But I’m also The Pajamanista

due to my stay at home gypsy tendencies.

I’m the homebody type who likes to

take things slower.

When you work hard to create a peaceful,

cozy nest, it’s easy to want to linger

in the slow living and tranquility.

A day where I don’t have to leave

home to face road rage, Walmart runs,

or grocery store lines is a pajama-fine

sweet day indeed.

It feels luxurious to not have to dress to impress,

and I’m in awe of grownups who every day

pull on clothing, accessories, and fancy shoes

as they save the world.

Me? I’m more rebellious.

Everything I have ever read about working

from home says I should avoid lounging

in pajamas and should *gasp*

always wear shoes to be productive!

But on days where skype is nowhere

on the agenda and creative writing ensues…


find me cozy in cotton comfort, honey child.

I am also cuckoo for cocoapuffs about

lingering in a good terry spa robe!

Know who I think of while vogueing? No one. My mind goes to mush…but wouldn’t Lauren Hutton
seriously rock these Oversize Pajamas?

How about you?

Are you a pajama-glama vixen who

arrives home from work and quickly sheds the

streetwear in favor of lounge lovely?

Are you a saucy kind of sweats and scrunchy diva?

Or is athleticwear your poison?

I’d love to hear about the fabrics and fashion

you favor in the privacy of your castle.

Peace to you right where you are.
