As an adult, I love getting new pyjamas. Even more than that, I love wearing pyjamas whenever I am not doing much… which is very often. Christmas is the perfect time to lounge around in pyjamas, and relax.
I’m no fashionista, my favourite pyjamas are mismatched and pretty worn – though I doubt I’m alone there. Some people may argue that Christmas is a special occasion, and that, even if I am in pyjamas, I should still put some effort into looking respectable for the holiday.
But it’s Christmas, and I’ll wear the tackiest pyjamas on the planet, and dance through the streets in them. In fact, just last year, I got the most tacky set of Golden Girls lounge pants, and I love them more than life itself!
Who needs to look set for the red carpet on Christmas?
They are comfortable, and stretchy, and breathable. Besides, isn’t Christmas all about relaxing, and spending time with those you love? Who needs to look set for the red carpet on Christmas? Just throw on a comfy pair of pyjama pants, and a soft sweater; its a day to chill and eat copious amounts of turkey (and cocktails, if you’re naughty).
We just need one day, just one day, to wear something comfortable, and breathe. Just breathe, and exist.
Social media has created this false sense of needing to look immaculate 24/7, regardless of holiday, or event. This is such an exhausting mindset. We just need one day, just one day, to wear something comfortable, and breathe. Just breathe, and exist.
So, spend some time with your loved ones. Wear those hideous-looking, yet super soft mismatched pyjamas… You deserve it after this god-awful year!
