|Ladies, we have to be WAY more brutal than this|
There's been quite a lot going on at the moment - crazy amounts of work, NY trip, Yorkshire trip (yes..these were fun but also quite manic), more work and..oh yes...I'M MOVING HOUSE ON FRIDAY. More than this, I'm moving in with The Boy. Living with one of Them..not on my own as I have done for many years. It's exciting and scary all at the same time but, to be honest, I haven't had a huge amount of time to think about it. I've been too busy trying to clear out stuff, Ebay stuff (actually my wonderful Mama has been doing that) and trying not to freak out. I have three of my best girlfriends coming over tomorrow night to help and am extremely grateful. I see it as a sort of pyjama party, but one where there will be wine and we will hopefully achieve a lot and put lots of things in boxes and suitcases. Also pyjamas are causing big beeps on the fashion radar at the moment.

I'm in two minds about them. In one way, I want to embrace them, being a huge fan of nesting and luxe lounge wear generally, but many don't fall into this category. In some cases you can actually look like you are wearing pyjamas and you ran out of your bed to a party. I'm talking about you Rachel Roy. I don't care if you've put red lippie on and managed to brush your hair..you forgot to set your alarm and pegged it to the One Day premiere.
Sometimes you could just be in a rather jazzy suit...Pippa Holt, contributing editor at Vogue (left) manages to look quite put together and I like the bed hair. The same applies to Caroline Sieber, although hers do look like more traditional pjs.
A lady who does seem to rock this look is Lauren Stephenson, the PR director of my-wardrobe.com. You can tell they're pyjamas and give her snaps for being frightfully on trend but you also don't get the fallen out of bed look.
For me, although I would adore some traditional men's pyjamas for Christmas and have been hunting for the ones that Audrey Tatou wears in Coco before Chanel, for me they will remain an item to wear round the house, perhaps lounging elegantly on my new sofa or bed..now I just have to get through the move...
