During the holidays I hibernate like a bear and eat like one too. It’s the time of year when I’ll stay in my pajamas all weekend and eat almost anything that’s put in front of me. Thankfully, it’s also the time of year when that sort of behavior is acceptable, so I don’t feel bad about it and neither should you.
Just remember that your pajamas need to be stylish in case any last minute visitors drop by. They should also be comfortable enough to wear all weekend. I’m currently in love with thermal one-pieces. They don’t ride up or expose your midsection to the cold and they’re loose enough to hide a bloated belly when you’ve eaten too much. If you’re a fan of the one-piece jammie look but prefer a two-piece style, then a stretch Henley PJ set will do the trick.
The traditional PJ style of baggy pants and a loose button-up shirt is also a really great choice. The shape is flattering for every body type and comfortable to boot. If you’re always cold, like I am, you can choose a flannel version or throw a camisole tank top and thermal long johns underneath for extra warmth.
It’s also a good idea to invest in a soft robe. Besides adding warmth, it comes in really handy if you’ve spilled something on yourself and need to hide it from your visitors. It can also double as a blanket when your too lazy to get up and grab one. I really like plush robes made of cashmere or fleece. They’re super cozy and totally worth the investment, but a cotton robe is perfect if you want something that’s warm and really easy to wash.
The holiday’s are meant for relaxation and you should take full advantage. So take after me and stay in your pajamas all weekend. Just make sure you do it in style.
Happy Holidays, everyone!
