I Wore My Pajamas Outside and Got Compliments (Plus, They're 50% Off Right Now!)
When the POPSUGAR team told me I could test out an item from Banana Republic's site for a story, I was a bit overwhelmed. What would I choose? Would it be a wish-list item? Would it be something I would wear all the time anyway so I could compare and contrast? Banana Republic has so many must haves this season that I knew it would be hard to pick. But when I saw this big-cat-printed Banana Republic Satin Pajama Set, it checked all of my boxes. It was a wish-list item because I don't treat myself to great pajamas nearly enough. And it was something practical that I would wear all the time, because working from home — especially over the holidays — loungewear and sleepwear are starting to blend!
We've seen pajama dressing on the red carpet, and our editors have styled their favorite pajamas to wear at home, but I wanted a true 24-hour look, perfect for that curbside pick up or corner-store run that will get me on my couch and back to Netflix ASAP. These pajamas were perfectly comfortable and chic; I took a Zoom call, went to the supermarket, and got so excited that I even tried dressing them up with heels like I would do on an evening out. I got so many compliments on the street with my mom (she took the photos), and one woman even asked where she could get the "suit!" The best part? These pajamas are currently $87 with an extra 10% off with code BRCYBER off at checkout — most things are with Banana Republic's Cyber Monday sale — so get them now and wear them all day over the holiday season!
Check out how you can style my new favorite pajamas with other great Banana Republic finds on sale!
