BUY IT

Barefoot Dreams Pajamas, $130

"I am a student of pajamas. In fact, the reason I started Favorite Things 21 years ago was that I had a great pair to share. The only drawback with my latest loves is that they’re so soft and stretchy, you won’t want to wear anything else." - Oprah

BUY IT

Caroline’s Cakes 7-Layer Bliss, $60

BUY IT
