This past weekend was so nice. After months and months of non-stop work, we actually took some time off to relax. It felt wonderful and weird all at once. We’ve been waking up for sunrise every morning, going on long beach walks everyday, spending lots of time in the kitchen and falling asleep early. We got back into the swing of things yesterday, and I have to say, some r&r is always good for both work and personal. My mind feels recharged and excited- ready for the new year, which is just days away. Since we’ve been taking it easy around here, I’ve been spending lots of time in comfy clothes and loungewear. On Christmas morning I didn’t even change out of my pjs until 2pm. There’s also just something about the wintertime and cold weather that makes a cozy outfit so appealing.
It wasn’t until a few years ago that I actually bought myself some nice at-home loungewear. Before that, it was only pajamas, workout clothes and regular clothes. There were always times or even days when I wanted something in-between, something that looked nice and put together but felt like something I would want to sleep in. I’ve recently got a few things from Lou & Grey, which has a really cute selection of relaxed pieces- I want to live in this sweater and these pants. Eberjey is another favorite brand of mine for similar pieces (I also love their pajamas). I brought these ivory quilted pants and this grey set with me to California for our holiday- both have been exceptionally perfect for both lounging and sleeping in.
