Bedtime Stories


What do you wear to bed at night? If that’s not too impertinent a question….

Are you a pyjama fan? Or more of a nightie girl? Perhaps you just sling on an old t-shirt and pair of boxers or do you make an effort with a slinky cami and lace-trimmed shorts? Or maybe you do a Marilyn Monroe and head to bed wearing nothing but your favourite perfume? 3 small children later, my Monroe days are gone and I’m very much in the PJ camp – or PJ bottoms/shorts and a vest top – if you really want to know. PJs are in fact such a loved part of my wardrobe that I yearn to throw them on as soon as as I’ve manhandled the last small boy into bed. I’m currently wearing some by the always-brilliant Hush. However, there’s always room for more sleep (wear) in my life. Here’s what I have my eye on at the moment (I particularly love the yellow silk-satin shorts by designer Olivia von Halle)…
