“I wore my winter pyjamas from Annabella Maternity earlier this week, and now I don’t want to wear anything else to sleep in ever again. They were honestly the most amazing pyjamas I’ve ever slept in, I’m not sure where they source the fabric but it has the most incredibly soft and light feel to it, you almost feel like you’re wearing nothing. I’ve really been feeling the need to be pampered since being pregnant. I’m not sure if it’s cause I was feeling so rubbish that I needed any form of pick-me-up that I could get, or if it’s just cause it’s Winter and we all feel like we need a bit more TLC, but regardless – wearing beautiful pyjamas is just one of the ways in which I can pamper myself.
My tummy isn’t all that big yet but here you can see how these pj’s can work for when you’re heavily pregnant. I love the subtle detailing at the tips of the arms and legs, and the pretty scooped neckline of the top. For my previous pregnancy I bought one of their nighties online which I also loved as it was A. so comfy, and B. so easy for breastfeeding. I wore it for ages post pregnancy as it is just so comfy and soft. I’ll be doing the same with this pair of winter ones no doubt, they’re light enough to be worn on the cooler summer nights… If you’re currently wearing your husband’s hand-me-downs to sleep in to accommodate your growing belly, I highly recommend getting yourself at least one pair of pretty PJ’s like mine – SO worth it! (I nearly said ‘because you’re worth it’ ha!)”.
About Pippa: “Personal style is the outward expression of your inner self. We all want to look (and feel) gorgeous, but often we don’t have the energy, time or means to look our best. That’s where PippaJ comes in. No matter what your shape or size, I take the hassle out of looking great, partnering with every client on an effortless adventure to their own personal style. I studied at the London College of Fashion, honing a natural gift for what looks good on people – with the sensitivity to work with any body shape or form. Most importantly, I love seeing the transformation in the way my clients feel about themselves and the positive steps they take in other aspects of their lives”. http://pippaj.co.za http://shopannabella.com/boutique/product/soft-winter-pyjamas/
