Eight weeks ago, the weather was pleasant enough for sleeping in cotton tees and cutie-pie cotton shorts that I certainly wouldn't wear beyond my own kitchen. (Okay, maybe to take the dogs outside first thing--but we are very far from the road.) Now, the nights are chilly. And what kind of sleepwear is available at the mothership? Mostly polyester, and plenty of 60/40 cotton/poly. The kind that pills, itches, and wears out quickly.
I want cotton, darn it! And maybe cotton flannel for uber-cool nights.
This is what I bought today, much to my chagrin:
Yep. I will be wearing 100% cotton Eeyore jammies ($7). Now, to be fair, I did own a darling set of flannel Piglet jammies--shorts and a 3/4 sleeve top. But that was well before I turned forty and I bought them at the Disney store because I was feeling whimsical and they were marked down. I don't know. I like Eeyore, but, really, these seem a little desperate, don't you think? I didn't get the matching waffle weave graphic top. I went to the sweats dept. and bought an $8 100% organic cotton tee shirt. It's soft.
Here are the other jammies:
These were $13. ($15 online--what's up with that?) This I can't figure out: I wanted to buy a pink or gray set instead. But the pink and gray versions were all 60/40 cotton/poly. Only the black ones were 100% cotton. I thought that maybe it was a labeling mistake, but it was the same for the nightgown version. I wonder if it has something to do with the black dyes.
Anyway. No glamour in the Benedict boudoir this winter. More's the pity.
See. Told you I couldn't wait to wear this again!
The last time I wore it was on Nov. 2nd, so it's almost been two weeks. Wish I could go the whole year without repeating outfits, but that's just not going to happen--just as it doesn't happen in real life. I did add That Damned Necklace ($7) and later in the day, my F'aux Uggs for comfort. A friend told me that I looked like Maid Marian, and I have to agree. As shown, the ensemble cost about $70--about $17 more with the sheepskin boots and necklace.
Tomorrow: Almost a pantsuit.
Have an enlightening week!
