Up your Sleepwear Game!

Listen, I’ve started and stopped this post so many times because I can’t figure out the right way to tell this story. It’s probably better told on snapchat or instastories so you can hear the light playfulness of it, but I’ll do my best to write it here for you too.

I have this v-neck camisole that is one of my favorite things to wear to bed. It’s a fleshy, nude color and has a soft grey lace around the trim. The shorts that match it are long gone, so the camisole is just that-a simple little camisole. It’s been worn so much that it’s the softest feeling cotton in the world, and it’s light and thin so I don’t get hot. . .I could go on and on forever but you get the point, right?

Getting ready for bed with Justin is usually one of the most fun times of my day. We tend to joke a lot and get to laughing quite a bit. The house is quiet, the kids are tucked in bed, there isn’t any other stressor taking our attention, so we can just be with each other. I cherish going to bed at the same time so we can have that quality time before sleeping.

One evening, a few months back, we got to talking about things we wouldn’t mind if the other would quit doing, in a very lighthearted but honest way. My go-to is to point out the “tweener” ottoman that holds clothes that are not dirty enough for the laundry, but not clean enough to be put away, his travel suitcase, other clean clothes that need to be sorted, etc. And he bravely confessed how much he dislikes my favorite camisole.

“It looks like something my grandma would wear 70 years ago”, is pretty close to what he said.

In shock and horror I gasped, and I immediately started machine gunning him with questions about 1. how long has he harbored this hate for this cami that I always reach for? 2. what doesn’t he like about it? 3. what else of my sleepwear does he not like? etc. etc. etc.

I just remember laughing so much and being so surprised that he didn’t like this perfect camisole! Well, perfect in my eyes.

Anyway, because I’m a loving and considerate wife, I only wear it every once in a great while now, and I’ve found other items that are just as soft and just as comfortable. And if he’s traveling for work, you can be sure I wear “grandma” every single night.

What I’m Wearing


Here’s a bit of what I’ve been wearing, that you may have seen on Instagram already. If you aren’t following, come join the fun! I’ve also dipped my toes into the instagram stories pool, and I may be converted from SnapChat! It’s so easy to do it all in 1 single app!

*I feel like I need to share a disclaimer that I picked up the Joie blouse thanks to earned Trunk Club credit. You should know by now that I’m a Target, Gap, Loft, Anthro, J.Crew Factory shopper for the most part!

blush crush

Blush has seriously come onto the scene as a trendy shade over the last few months or so, and I love it. Any soft color that can easily go with grey is a huge win in my book.

It’s such a pretty and feminine touch that can really go with any outfit. And it isn’t overly girly, which works really well for me.

I saw those pretty blush sneakers in store, but they didn’t have my size, so I went to order them online and they are completely sold out! I think they’ll be a perfect alternative to my grey Steve Madden sneakers which, while I still love, have taken a bit of a beating over the last few months! I’m hoping they will restock soon.

Also, how cute is that tote bag? It’s from Target. I don’t know when I’ll stop being impressed by the style and quality of items that come from Target, but I hope it’s not soon. So many of my simple wardrobe staples are from there, and it’s just to easy to pick them up when I’m shopping for other necessities.
