Strawberries and Self Care

Well…it’s been a while since I’ve been back with a blog update. I’ll be honest, I had major plans for the start of the year. I even had a weekly styling series plotted out that just ended up simply not happening.

Basically I hit a creative slump and I was finding it harder and harder to shake off the depressive episode I found myself in during the holidays which ended up lasting far longer than I would have liked.  To the point that I even missed out on sharing any V-day inspired looks this year! And if you’ve been with me since the beginning, you know that has been a “time-honored” tradition for this blog over the last 8 years.

So where does this cute strawberry print pajama/lounge matching set come in? So, here’s the thing –  I’m shopping again. For clothes that is and this major turn of events inspired me to not only create content on my social platforms again, but return to posting on the blog, which I have greatly missed.

I had actually been eyeing this set online for weeks now and only got around to seeing it in person about a week or two ago after I stumbled into an Old Navy in need of some much needed retail therapy after a very long day at work in office. Old Navy tends to be my first stop at the turn of the season to stock up on dresses that would get me through both spring and summer. This is the first time that I’ve ever given their sleepwear more than a passing glance and I’m so glad that I did.

I mean, look at this color combo and print!

Here’s a little known fact about me, I am a sucker for a cute strawberry print.  Honestly, I blame the Nana manga and anime for my low-key obsession, yet I’m glad to see that the print is trending this season. Moreover, I love the fact that this set includes a matching bralette as I tend to sleep with one as it is so this is definitely an added bonus. Sure, I plan for this to be solely for at-home use, but the overall look just brings and instant smile to my face. Now I need to find a matching bonnet to go with it.

I think it’s fair to say that the majority of us are may be digging ourselves out of some figurative, yet negative, holes that we may or may not have intentionally thrown ourselves into. And yes, for me that has meant adding some more pink to my black void that is my closet, even if it is just my pajama drawer for now.

Anyway, whether you simply have a thing for strawberries or are looking to add some simple joys to your closet, definitely keep a look out for this pajama set and claim it as your own.

Style Note: I highly doubt that I will do this myself, but I could totally see someone wearing this set together like this to spend a day pool side on vacation so that’s also an option for you if you’re not into traditional sleepwear.  The fabric is lightweight and breathable making it perfect for pretty much either occasion – sleeping or fun in the sun. 

Are you a “fruit-print girlie”?

I know so many cherry and lemon-print girlies so I’m curious to know if this is something super niche and/or if there are any other fruit prints out there that people like a lot.
