PajamaJeans? OH EVEN YESSER.

With the free t-shirt!  It's totally a
booby shirt, not a crewneck.
On Tuesday, I received a belated birthday present from very dear friend and neighbor Ellen.  It was a pair of mutherf*cking PajamaJeans.  They are perhaps the best gift that anyone has ever received in the history of ever.   Kate & I have debated the merits of Pajama Jeans, and my position as pro-faux denim is well documented. But that was before I actually tried a pair on. 

Now I am an Evangelist for PajamaJeans. I have gone from being in favor of them to being like OH HELLS YEAH, go get you some.

Several of you have asked about the free-with-purchase gray crewneck t-shirt.  Crewneck, my sweet Aunt Fanny.  It's a soft and stretchy cleavage scoop-neck and It. Is. Awesome.

Per the request of some curious people on Facebook, here are some pictures of me in my fine new garments (also with no make-up or anything so please be kind in the comments section).  I am wearing the free t-shirt and high heels.

Why? Why is Lydia, longtime worshipper at Our Lady of the Perpetually Comfortable Footwear, wearing such blasphemously high and pointy shoes? For three* very important  reasons:

Seriously, considering how big it is
my ass doesn't look half bad
 in these things. WOOT!
1) Because they said to in the commercial.

2) Because it's so funny to me that someone would purchase these "pants" and then squeeze their feet into attractive torture devices.  Isn't being sort of fugly and comfy the whole point?  They look like jeans if you squint. And they are a huge improvement over wearing actual pajamas in public, but let's not kid ourselves.

3) Because it may be the thing that causes Kate's head to explode.  Or at least give her an eye twitch.  And the idea of her in a fashion-related frenzy of annoyance is highly amusing to me.

4) We're scheduled to back on Let's Talk Live next Thursday and I wanted to see how it looked so I could plan my outfit. Because you know I'm wearing these things on TV next week for realzies because Kate will have a seizure being seen in public with me and the hosts of the show will be like "there is NO WAY you actually just did that."

I included this photo so you could enjoy the detailed
contrast stitching on the hem.  Oh even yesser.

[*Editor's Note: That's four reasons, you stupid hooker. I thought about just correcting it from "three" to "four", but then I decided that I wanted to make you look stupid and bad at math. Also, because you made me proof a post about those "pants" and that you're wearing heels and I think I'm gonna slap you with a sandwich. Just as soon as the twitching stops. -Kate]

I love you, Pajama Jeans. And thank you so much Ellen. [Editor's Note: Yeah. Thanks, Ellen. Thank you so much. Super. -Kate] I love them.

xo, Lydia

  1. Never heard of them but now I must try! The more comfortable the better!

  2. BAHAHAHAHA. Yes, I was one of the curious ... LOVE IT! :) I'm a total convert ... off to order a pair (and get the free boob shirt because mama knows, I need more boob shirts).

  3. Ah NEEDZ me some PAJAMAJEANS! Youze should do a giveaway!!! Kin ah gits me some wif RFML "Whuck?!" on the cuff? Jus small, not like JUICY on my ass or nuthin.

    Love you long time Lydia!!! :D

    1. YEAH! Do a giveaway! Can't you get some kind of promotional something or other for advertising on a hugely popular mom blog (cause, really, who else are they selling to?)

  4. Oh. My. God.

    You didn't go there. Except you did.

    And I love you for it. (also? I just typed that and almost hit submit before I realized I had accidentally said "And I love you for tit." Which would have been a totally different thing.)

  5. My mom got me the pajama jeans with T-shirt almost a year ago. My friends mock me but sometimes I run errands in them on the weekend. The do ride down though and I always feel like I am pulling them up so I'm not a true convert.

  6. i was just afraid that heel was going to get stuck in between the deck boards. ooh la la sassoon.

  7. The fist thing that comes to mind are the words "pants and slacks." I'm just sayin'!

    This is the first I've ever seen or heard of pajama jeans. We don't have TV. (don't ask) Anyway, where would someone go to purchase a pair of said "jeans?"

  8. I love, love, love my pajama jeans. They are so awesome and comfortable. I cannot, on the other hand wear the t-shirt because it is a tad too tight fitting and basically shows all my bumps and bulges and I really hate shirts that do that. I swore I would never wear them out in public and then I got as sick as a dog and still have to shuttle the kids here there and everywhere and I ended up wearing them out in public. Not one person mentioned to me that I should not be out in pajamas. Though half the ladies drop their kids off at school in yoga pants so they have no room to say anything. LOL

  9. Three things! FIRST, in the picture they look like jeans. Second, you look great in that whole outfit. We'll call that look "Casual Hot!" Third, I think Kate doesn't want the normal people (who don't weigh 35 pounds) to run around being comfortable AND looking good. ;) Fourth(of three, you're welcome Kate) I can't wait to see your post with the clip from t.v. :)

  10. No, No, No-itty NO, No Way Hosay and Lydia? Whuck...

    This is like when you went to Brighton and ran off with Wycombe.... didn't get married, lived in sin and hid-out in London and disgraced your family.....

    Even No-er... Someone's gonna force you to marry those Wycombe Jeans and they're gonna be with you forever!!!!

  11. wow, your butt does look good...and now i want some. thanks. :D

  12. holy cleavage Batman! You look awesome! I want the jeans and the shirt ASAP!

  13. So...the glorified yoga pants don't make my skirt twirl, sorry. And the pointy shoes give me vertigo.
    reasons 3 and 4 out of three? Totally make them worthwhile!
    Promise you will post the LTL video so we can watch Kate twitch and throw a Choo at you? Pretty please?

  14. I think you look fab Lydia! I must try!

  16. There is so much that is wrong with pajama jeans. BUT (hehe, she said "butt") you are absolutely rocking that look, Miss Lydia:) From every angle. And there is no article of clothing in which I would let someone photograph me from behind, so you get major moxie points as well.

  17. Awesome! You're way cooler now than I ever thought you were before.

  18. Hahahahahaha!! Kate's gonna smack you with a sandwich! But in the mean time your ass looks AH. MAZ. ING in those pajama jeans! Almost makes me want a pair. But like Kate, I'm twitching a bit.

  19. Hilarious! You have convinced me to give into my inner "comfy-fugly". Bring on the pajama jeans!!!!

  20. Just got some 'jeggings' aka knockoff pajama jeans and I LOVE them. They kinda rock for under longer shirts maternity stuff (clothing I wear at this point). Buahahaha. and they were only 12 bucks.
