Lately, I have been spending more time, more effort, and more precision in choosing the outfits that I wear to bed as opposed to the outfits I wear out the door.
It wasn't always like this.
Back in the day, I would gravitate towards the same tired Gilly Hicks sleep pants/tank ensemble and call it a night, then proceed to spend 20 minutes every morning standing in front of my closet in a sad state of depression because I had nothing. to. wear. What factors attributed to this major shift in sleep styling?
1. Filling my closet with basic, easy to mix and match separates has made my workwear choices practically foolproof, even in the dark and/or hungover.
2. I realized that wearing soft and silky chemises to bed made me feel more like a luxurious and saucy minx à la Sophia Loren, less like a college student puttering around the women's dorm, à la Gilmore Girls.
3. I have a boyfriend who gives my rotation of nighties and negligees the same undivided attention and focus that he normally reserves for Detroit Lions' and Playstation 3 games.
As women we know, pretty underpinnings can get pretty pricey, which is why I can't wait to embrace the Far East Movement in lingerie with the Josie Natori for Target Collection.
Released on October 30th, Target's newest limited-edition designer collection brings a touch of Asian influence into our boudoirs with Josie Natori's Eastern-inspired patterns and playful, flirty details displayed on pretty demi bras and panties, three piece printed pj sets, colorfully coy racerback chemises and sexy as all Shanghai Embroidered Dragon robes.
The best part? Everything is under $35 bucks (2,727.98 Japanese yen). The 2nd best part? This is only part one of the collection, keep your eye out for Cherry Blossoms dropping this spring.
My favorites? The Two Piece Printed Cami Set and the anything but tame Teddy, both for $24.99.
I'm pretty sure everybody is Kung Fu fighting over Natori's nightwear, so grab your favorites now before they say Sayonara. I'll be shopping for a new rotation of skivvies to keep my guy's undivided attention this weekend. Uncharted 3, Drake's Deception was just released.
