Striped shirts, monogrammed pouches and fashion books all make for excellent presents, but let's face it: nothing really beats pajamas and socks. They're the kind of items you don't often gift yourself, that evoke all kinds of wonderful cozy/fresh/clean feelings, and make you think of the recipient every time you get down for a Netflix sesh. It's a pretty unbeatable combination.
Recently, my boyfriend gifted me the above pajama set from J.Crew, and I'm fairly in love. A sizable part of my wardrobe is dedicated to stripes, particularly of the blue-and-white variety, and these pajamas (accented with raised dots) fit right in. They're crisp and well-tailored, and the fabric is a medium-weight cotton that's comfortable to wear year-round.
Now all I need is a pair of these babies.
J.Crew textured-dot sleep set in stripe, $98, available at J.Crew.
