Cozy And Cute: Velvet Pajamas


There’s no doubt that velvet is having a major moment right now, and one fun way to wear it is pajamas.  Velvet PJs are cozy, cute, and have a little something extra that feels especially on point during the festive holiday season.

My hands-down favorite pair of velvet jams are from Madewell.  The top is cute enough to wear alone and the shorty-shorts are short enough to be sexy, but long enough to bend over without fear.  I warm things up with an oversized cashmere sweater, legwarmers (which never get enough love if you ask me #flashdanceforever) and cozy slippers.

And before I forget…..I need some new holiday kids’ books.  Anything good?  Too many are SO cheesy – and I’d love some multi-cultural book ideas, too.  In lieu of that, I did pick up this unabridged, illustrated copy of A Christmas Carol.  Raines loves it, but Pax is a little scared.  I forgot how intense the story was (but also amazing, so we’ll persevere).

I love that moment when we bring out alllll of the holiday stuff: books, decorations….Mike’s Christmas village (don’t ask).

Actually, we haven’t brought Mike’s village up from the basement yet. It’s so precious that I’m always fearful taking the many little parts out of the many little boxes. Yet it brings that man SO MUCH JOY YOU GUYS.  So much joy.  I gotta get on my game.
