With two young children and a work-from-home career, I’ve often defaulted to the fuzzy PJ pants and t-shirt combo. Comfy? Yes. Stylish? Not so much.
We put so much effort into picking the clothes we wear during the day, so why shouldn’t we put just as much into looking great at home?
I was recently given the chance by the luxury scarf and pashmina label, Somerville, to up my loungewear game with a pair of their stylish pyjamas.
These 100% cotton PJ’s come in both long and short versions, and in a selection of classy colours: I instantly fell in love with the pretty blush pink with the metallic gold stars (also comes in denim and white).
The fabric is luxuriously soft and lightweight, yet still has that delicious crispness you’d expect from cotton. The top has that slightly oversized boxy shape I love while the shorts have a traditional drawstring (another favourite of mine – I love to pull them tight and get that ‘bunched up’ look around the waist).
These stylish pyjamas are the perfect sleepwear for weekends away (these would have been perfect for my trip to Champagne, or my minibreak in Grasse), or those deliciously lazy Sunday mornings at home.
But it’s not just fabulous sleepwear – Somerville actually made their name from their range of luxury cotton scarves and pashminas, and have since expanded to include kaftans and slips for summer, and snuggly winter accessories, including hats, neck warmers and (my favourite) cashmere wrist warmers.
Thank you, Somerville, for adding a little starry style to my mornings.
