I don’t know about you, but I love a new pair of PJs. I think I’d rather have a new pair of pajamas than a new sweater. I rounded up some stylish spring/summer pajamas this time last year, and you all seemed to love it, so I decided to update the post for 2019.
I think some women have a hard time spending money on pajamas because they figure no one that matters sees them, and I get that. I used to wear my pajamas forever, and they were all old and worn and baggy. But a few years ago I decided that even if I’m just at home with my husband and kids, I don’t want to look like a total schlumpadink. They deserve better than that, and so do I!
So I started updating my pajama wardrobe, and now I usually treat myself to a new pair of pajamas each season to keep them fresh. I also make sure to weed out the old worn-out stuff, and I try to keep my PJs contained to one drawer in my closet. I fold them the Marie Kondo way to maximize space. When that drawer gets too full, it’s time to weed out a pair.
I like practical PJs for the most part, so I can wear them around the house with the kids present, but I do want them to be cute and flattering. Here’s a roundup of some of my favorites so far this season.
Where I Buy Pajamas
For size reference, I always buy medium in pajamas because I like them to be roomy, and I want to be able to throw them in the dryer. All the images below are clickable, and they should take you to the corresponding pair of pajamas on the retailer’s website.
Soma has good short sets as well. This one is really cute, and I like that the top is bra friendly. I wear my bra with my pajamas until I go to bed, and I really should put it on first thing in the morning, but I’m usually alone for a few hours. At any rate, bra-friendly PJ tops are always appreciated!
I love the idea of the coordinating robe on top. These make great gifts too, if you’re looking for something for your mom/sister/daughter/bestie… anyone, really!
Their forever favorite t-shirt is super soft and comes in a ton of colors and designs.
Like Old Navy, Gap has a lot of different styles for pajama bottoms. I also like their selection of sleep shirts, although I personally never wear those. With the kids around, I feel more modest in pajamas.
I did a whole roundup at Christmastime, but they also have some fun spring styles coming in for Valentine’s and Mother’s Day. This SONOMA Goods for Life Mother’s Day 3-Piece Pajama Set comes in a bunch of different color ways.
They have a nice selection, and not all are super pricey. These Moonlight Pajamas by Nordstrom Lingerie have over 500 5 star reviews, they’re $55 for the set, and they come in 6 different color ways.
They have a long version as well with over 1000 5 star reviews.
The Make + Model Gotta Have It Tee goes with any of the pajama bottoms in your collection, and they’re just 2 for $39.
I have both these jogger pants and these lounge pants, and I love them both equally. I wear them to sleep sometimes and also to hang out at home when I want to be comfy. Oh, and these lounge pants are great too — a little thicker than the Make + Model ones, and oh-so-soft and cozy.
And of course everyone loves a Barefoot Dreams cardigan. I finally got one after listening to all the hype for several years, and I can’t believe I waited so long to jump on this bandwagon.
I also like to check out Nordstrom Rack for good prices on these Nordstrom brands. Sometimes I get lucky and find a bargain.
This lightweight cardigan is a great substitute for a robe and a little more appropriate for wearing around in front of the kids and their friends. I also love these terry lounge pants and this tie waist top.
