Granny Sleep

There’s something so lovely about sleeping in good old-fashioned cotton. Be it traditional mens style pyjamas, or our favourite Victorian nightdresses (this is another thing we discovered we had in common shortly after becoming friends – Nicky is one of the few other people I know who loves a ‘Granny nightdress’ as much as I do!!), classic is best. If you turned up at my house, unannounced (please don’t), on a Saturday morning, chances are you’d find me wafting around in one… Here’s a little selection of stylish sleepwear that we’re liking, but with a bit of a Grandma edge to some more than others: this sheer embroidered night slip from TopshopGap striped pyjama pants, The White Company seersucker striped pyjama shirt and pants (love these!), Bodas striped cotton nightshirt, Skin nightdress, Bodas striped cotton nightdress, and these Next cotton ‘Summer’ pyjamas (we both ripped out the same page from the Next Directory to show each other!). Amazon is actually a great place to chanel your ‘inner Granny’. We like this one, this one, and this one will also double up as a fab holiday dress with a pair of tan flat sandals (you know the ones)
I have also always loved Lunn Antiques for nightdresses too. They do replicas of Victorian ones (I like and have this one), and the prices are great. I’ve also recently discovered that they’ve added mini me versions. So of course I’ve ordered one for Tabitha!

ps: we also love this gorgeous brand, Three Graces for totally dreamy nightwear, but maybe more for just daydreaming?
