The pajama trend is one that has been around for a couple of years, allowing those to mix up their trousers with pajama bottoms and tops with sleep shirts. A brave few are able to make both items work as a seamless ensemble—this intrigued me.
One of the brands that remains at the epicenter of this movement is Sleepy Jones, a company that believes comfort brings out our true selves. So I recently ventured into their store in Lower Manhattan to see if I, too, could pull it off. I was immediately sent into a lounging, calming environment with soft music playing in the background and pajama-clad saleswomen.
Enthralled with the choices, I left the store with two sets—one for bed and one, of course, for everyday wear. I couldn’t wait to get into one of these sets, and once I did, I didn’t regret it one bit. I felt like I’d leaped into a cloud and my body had it’s own mini-eureka moment.
The next day, I decided to don this entire look at the office. This time, instead of rocking my slippers, I opted for suede loafers. If anything was a clear indication as to how passersby felt about my outfit, it was the glances I received on the subway that morning. People were taking in every detail of my outfit, which I expected.
What I didn’t anticipate? My coworkers’ reactions. Many of my colleagues loved what I was wearing that day (some were, dare I say, jealous?), and even complimented how perfect it was for the time of year and for the ever-changing temperatures—score!
I felt completely invigorated by my choice in attire that day at work and, regardless of people’s reactions, it definitely had the gusto to turn heads. Plus, I did killed it that day.
