Every February I write a post encouraging women to “be lovely at night.” Let’s throw out our ratty pajamas pants and replenish our intimates and sleepwear drawer with things we love and feel good about. I have browsed my favorite stores and sharing some favorites in today’s post!
I’ll never forget, maybe a year or so after I got married, we were visiting my grandparents and I came downstairs one morning in a washed out sorority t-shirt and flannel pajamas. It was no coincidence that a few days later my grandmother called me and had the “don’t let yourself go” talk.
At first I was defensive (“he loves me no matter what I wear!”), but I eventually came to agree with the ideals of my grandmother. I believe it’s important for both men and women to make effort to present our best selves to our significant others and keep the flame alive, so to speak. And Vacation Bible School volunteer t-shirts every night just don’t cut it;).
So this annual post really has ulterior motives. My drawers are in desperate need of some new nightgowns and sleep sets. But before I get to those, I want to share some pretty intimates and bra sets I found. Nothing to racy here! Everything is tasteful but would still make your hubby swoon this Valentine’s Day.
Okay now for the pajama sets and nightgowns!
P.S. You know what’s sweet? My girls always make comments when I wear pretty nightgowns at night: “Mom, you look so fancy!” Being lovely in your daughters eyes is important, too, I guess.
Also, don’t miss my cute Valentine’s gift inspiration post from Saturday. Lots of cute ideas for your bestie, child’s teacher, and maybe even yourself!
