FABRIC CHOICES FOR THE CAROLYN PAJAMAS

silk pajama fabric

Hola amigas! This week I shared some Ryan Gosling approved pajama styling inspiration. Today I’m going deep into the trenches to find some sweet fabrics for your Carolyn Pajamas. From flannel to silk, you’re covered.

SWEET SILK

If you go the silk route, your Carolyns will be decidedly fancy. Balking at the cost? Silk pajamas don’t sell for less than $400 and can go as high as $1000. You’re technically saving money and investing in comfort. Also? Treat yo’ self.

PLAIDS & CHECKS

These fabrics can go from “cozy winter chalet” to “preppy Nantucket beach rental”. Choose your own adventure!

NOVELTY FLANNELS

For a more casual “I’m not getting off the couch until I finish I finish all 5 seasons of the Good Wife” (aka every night of the week for me), a fun print in a cozy flannel is pretty much the best. Also, I found YUMMY SUSHI FLANNEL. Buffy fans, rejoice.

LIGHTWEIGHT RAYON & COTTON

Silky, soft and super breathable, Carolyns made from any of these would be amazing for warmer climates and spring and summer nights.
