In the beforetimes, I would probably have described my day to day underwear setup as… practical. I would mainly reach for my trusty cotton basics to get me through a work day then strip it all off and cocoon myself in a robe as soon as I got home. As a Lille gal, I of course had flashier lingerie sets for special occasions or a day where I needed a little pick-me-up but for the most part, I leaned much more toward comfort and breathability. However, since I’ve been spending so much more time at home (living, working, socializing—what can’t you do from home these days?) I’ve noticed a significant shift in my underwear game. Now I have the time to wear and appreciate some of my more fun, interesting and less practical pieces and while I still have my go-to comfy favorites, I’m definitely hoping to spoil myself this Christmas with a little more frivolity. Here’s what I’m lusting after this season...
Only Hearts is one of my favorite lingerie labels. Everything I have of theirs is comfy and wearable without sacrificing on wow factor. I thought I’d died and gone to heaven when I saw this adorable sleep set. I certainly won’t be sleeping in it (more like swanning around the house taking mirror selfies) but the toughest choice I face now is whether to get it in Blue Black or the more holiday themed Black Cherry!
Even though we technically got this set in over summer (helloooo restock fairies!) it’s a dream under a chunky cardigan or a flowy sundress—endless versatility. The crocheted lace is so dainty and sweet and I am obsessed with the tortoiseshell ring detail. We also just got a new colorway--you can't go wrong with basic black!
For impromptu Zoom calls, I always need to have a robe handy (in case you haven’t guessed, I spend A LOT of time in my underwear). The Jane Kimono Robe is the perfect work-call-ready robe. Its scalloped edges and soft, satiny finish dress it up.
Because I’m still a total sucker for comfy stuff, this Else soft bra has definitely caught my eye. The whole Base Layer collection is unbelievably soft and comfortable and this sporty little number is no different and I love the keyhole in the front!
I am a self-described “super smeller”, I have no idea if it’s a real thing but I feel like it’s my strongest sense by far. I sniff everything and I loooove good smelling things. When we first started stocking Boy Smells, I fell hard for their unique scents and crisp packaging but the thing that got me truly hooked was how good their candles smelled even between burning sessions these candles really go the distance! Agua De Jardín is my favorite scent from their Hypernature collection and I love it so much I’m considering stocking up so I can smell this beautiful smell for the rest of my life—that’s not weird right?
