Since the baby was born, I’ve been spending more time than ever at home. It actually feels pretty amazing to be in one place this long, nestled up inside getting to bond as a family. I cannot remember the last time we were in the same place for more than a month, let alone almost three (aside from a short trip to NYC for our coat launch)…it’s been years! I think it’s safe to say that it was much needed and our daughter has brought a newfound desire for a bit of a slower pace. I’ve been working from home since I jumped back into things about a month ago, and although I make an attempt to get dressed up (i.e. put real clothes on) everyday, my pajamas and loungewear pieces have had a lot of extra attention lately. That’s one of the reasons why I love buying beautiful pajamas and cozy pieces for home- they get just as much use, maybe even more, than my regular clothes. I slip into them almost immediately when I walk through the door. And when I’m at home all day with the baby, all I want to be is comfortable. One of my favorite brands that you’ll often see me wearing is Lake Pajamas. I love that they also have a maternity line, which makes breastfeeding even easier and they recently launched men & kids. Another one of my go-to brands is Skin– I have a handful of their loungewear pieces that I’ve lived in pre and post baby- like this set and this one as well. I also never go a day without using a plush robe, especially now that the temps have dropped. I keep a big terrycloth one right by my shower and this one right by my bed. I’m all about that cozy living!
