With less than a week until Christmas, and two weeks until 2017, cue the most used phrase at the end of each year… “where has the year gone?” the holidays are fast approaching. From presents, to holiday parties to food, food, food, we’ll be losing precious sleep and gaining not so precious pounds.
Despite working, holiday parties and the endless amount of running around and preparation before Christmas, I try to slip into my pyjamas and chill during this time as often as I can. And yes, that totally means I’m achieving grandma status and passing out before 9:00 pm on some nights.
As much as I love ratty old t-shirts and lived-in bottoms, it was about time I traded in the old for the new. These cat motif pyjamas from La Vie En Rose provide the same comfort and coziness as my old, ratty ones and are cute enough to lounge around the house in. Sippin’ on hot chocolate and watching holiday movies in these pjs, the early snowfall this year provided the essence of Christmas we were seriously lacking last year.
We all have that person(s) that is IMPOSSIBLE to shop for. Whether they have everything and more, or are super picky when it comes to receiving gifts, pyjamas are that one gift during the holiday season that won’t disappoint. Whether you’re male or female, a nice set will be appreciated beyond words (and put to good use).
With that said, I’ve put together a little holiday guide with my favourite picks exclusive to La Vie En Rose, to make your pyjama shopping that much easier. P.S don’t I have the cutest little Santa sitting on my lap?!
Accessories & Fun Stuff:
So I know it’s been awhile since I’ve last posted here, and some of you have been wondering where I’ve gone. Well, aside from travelling in the summer, I was also taking summer school courses and doubled my semester in September. It’s definitely been time consuming, to say the least, and I’ve been hardcore slacking on the blog. But the plus side is I’ve got plenty of outfit and travel photos lined up and (almost) ready to go. 😉
This sleeveless burnt orange sweater (official name “autumn red”) is a recent purchase from Guess, and loved it so much I went back and got it in black! It’s the perfect cut for fall layering under jackets and cardigans, and will definitely keep you warm in the upcoming colder months. Pairing it with a black bomber, black knee high boots, blue jeans and black aviators kept my look casual and season- appropriate. And the orange and black just so happened to go with today’s occasion, Halloween.
I’ve linked below the exact top I’m wearing in both “black” and “autumn red.”

My feet seem to always be cold, so socks for me are a must. And when they come in so many cute designs and colours like these stance socks, how can you resist?
The description of these socks on the website is just too cute, I had to share…
Whether you’re single and ready to mingle or off the market (with a keen eye on the goods), Stance’s Single Mingle are the quickest way to raise some heart rates. Fall head over heels for the buttery softness of combed cotton and the reinforced stitching on these Tomboy Light fit socks. Whether you wear them out on a first date or in for a night of Netflix and chill, they’ll do all the talking for you-we know your lips are busy.
So cheers to keeping the love alive, and keeping your feet toasty all year round. xo
