Flannel pajamas & cozy gifts - une femme d'un certain âge

Ringing in the cozy season

When Maria in The Sound of Music sang about “raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens,” she didn’t mention “flannel pajamas,” but they are definitely one of my favorite things. Especially in a fun print like this one!

On these chilly nights and mornings, there’s nothing more cozy than a pair of flannel pajamas. These are 100% cotton and super soft. They’re available in a bunch of fun prints, and also come with a matching headband (which Bella is modeling above).

More cute flannel pajamas & slippers for women:

Sizes: I’m wearing a Small in the pajamas (probably could have sized down), and a size 8 in the slippers (went 1 size up from my usual).

I’ve never tried an espresso martini, but now I’m intrigued…

Cozy at home

Nordstrom has a fantastic selection of cozy gifts for him, for her, for home. Shipping is free, and if you need something in a hurry, you can often order online and pick up at your nearest store.

And don’t forget Fido…

Nordstrom has some great gifts for our furry family members too. If your dog has sensitive skin, here’s a pet shampoo from one of my favorite brands that’s gentle, vegan, and cruelty free.

Holiday photos are more fun when everyone gets festive…here are some scarves that should coordinate nicely with everyone’s Christmas sweaters (or flannel pajamas). Here’s a squeaky toy when only the best will do for your pooch (and these are durable too).

Keep your best friend warm and dry with a heritage brand quilted jacket. I recently bought this harness for Bella, and really like that it can be put on without having to slip over her head. It’s also easier for older dogs or those that may have mobility issues. It comes in lots of great colors, so why not get the matching leash?

And finally, “The Big Lebarkski” sweater. How can you not love it?

    Susan—I would love a post on sleepwear for petite height women. Just wondering how long the pants and sleeves were on this pair of pjs? Hard to tell by the way you’re modeling them. I’m 5’ so it’s almost impossible to buy long pjs without paying to have them hemmed. Even long nightgowns are usually too long also.

      These are a little long on the legs, so here I’ve turned up the hem. The sleeves have the fun contrasting color and embroidery on the cuffs and the length was perfect with the cuffs turned up. I’ll see if they shrink any when I wash them, and may get them hemmed. It is tough finding full-length pajamas for petites. I also sometimes look for ‘capri’ lengths.

      Bedhead makes cropped length pajamas with three-quarter sleeves.

    Hi Susan, you look great, as always. Warm pajamas are so desirable right now. I am petite and use the same strategy with pajama sizing. Or, sometimes, if it’s a family type of situation just buy a big kids’ pair.
    Bella steals the show, though, she is extra adorable with that bow.

    Susan, I have you to thank for my favorite two sets of pajamas that you featured a couple of years ago. You linked them in your story, and I immediately bought two sets and have loved them ever since! Of course, now those particular pajamas are no longer available, and I dread the day these beloved pajamas wear out! Thank you!

    You look super cute in those PJ’s. I don’t think we have such fun ones over here. Espresso Martini is a nice cocktail. As the name indicates, a bit coffee flavoured although there is no Martini in it. I think the Pornstar Martini is even better. Again there is no Martini in it and neither is it drunk by a pornstar or are you one. Strange name haha.
