I love PJs. Always have done, though to be honest they’re not something I’ve ever felt the urge to splash out on. I’m sure I’m not the only one happy to spend a small fortune on an amazing dress and killer heels for a special occasion, yet sleep every night in something I’d frankly not answer the door in! The older I get the more I think that these little things actually do matter… that we should love the everyday things in our lives.
With this in mind, I happily accepted Charlotte’s offer to try a pair of her PJs. Charlotte & Co is an online boutique filled with girly gorgeousness to add a little (or a lot!) of lux to everyday life with a range of homeware, clothing and accessories ranging from pretty pure silk knickers to stylish mock croc wellies.
Meet my new PJs…
I’m a sucker for butterfly prints so couldn’t resist this very girly pink brushed cotton flannel pair.
They’re so soft and comfy to wear and the genius design means they’re elasticated at the back but the front can be loosened (or tightened, if you’re lucky!) for the perfect fit. This might just come in handy after Christmas dinner! I can’t stand tight PJs and usually size up - I didn’t this time, but these are very true to size and a comfortable, relaxed fit without being overly baggy. (ie I don’t feel like I’m wearing a sack & they don’t stretch & hang off my bum after a night’s sleep!)
It’s hard to photograph PJs - this was the best way to show you them in their entirety (much as I love you all, I’m not ready to pose in my PJs just yet - sorry girls!) The fabric is not at all transparent, despite how it looks against the light.
This pic is a more accurate perception of the colour and fabric.
The soft, pretty fabric, comfortable design and pretty finish is what makes these a bit more special than my usual High St options. And while it’s more than I’d usually pay, I don’t think £39 is extortionate for cotton flannel PJs - especially as they do make me feel lovely going to bed!
Oh and if you ‘like’ Charlotte & Co on Facebook you can get 25% with the code luxe25 for the next 3 days, which works out at just £29.25!
For those lucky enough to have a super generous Santa in their life, Charlotte & Co also sells Classic Silk Satin pyjamas. As for me, I may dream on…
