in case you didn’t already know, january 3rd is the festival of sleep. i mean, how great is that? a day dedicated to sleeping in, taking naps, dozing off, and snoozing? i haven’t heard of a better idea since national chocolate day became a thing.
so in honor of this momentous holiday, i was approached by Casper mattress to participate in their “beauty sleep style challenge.” a mattress company designing mattresses “for the bedroom, not the showroom,” Casper uses a combination of two technologies- premium latex foam for cooling & bounce and memory foam for supportive comfort, to create the perfect spot for sleeping, lounging, and dreaming.
Casper posed the question that many an inquiring mind want to know -what’s your go-to outfit for a night of beauty sleep? because let’s be honest, fashion doesn’t end when the lights go out. looking good is a 24/7 job! and that applies right down to what you decide to slip on before climbing into bed. for me, like with my non-sleeping wardrobe, comfort is key. which is why my favorite thing to slip on in the off-hours is a cotton nightshirt. with no restricting waistbands or ill-breathing fabrics, i can pair it with cozy moccasin slippers if the temperatures dip, or roll up the sleeves and keep cool if we get an unexpected heat wave.
comfort and ease aside, there’s something about wearing a nightshirt that makes me feel pretty and feminine, too. i love my over-sized sweatpants as much as the next gal, but sometimes i want to feel a little girlie instead.
i’ve gathered a few different options on how to recreate my above look -at every price point -if you’re looking to slip into a nightshirt of your own this winter season.
one | j.crew nightshirt, $63.00
two | l.l. bean flannel nightshirt, $29.99
three | lauren ralph lauren knit nightshirt, $66
four | target chaia moccasin slipper, $13.99
five | nordstrom minnetonka ‘cally’ slipper, $38.95
six | j.crew lodge moccasins, $49.50
so save the date for the festival of sleep on january 3rd. and sweet dreams, y’all!
p.s. don’t worry, that coffee is decaf.
