This is the time of year when I break out my Day of the Dead sugar skull PJs!
I saw these adorable and Nick & Nora Brand PJs at Target several years ago and fell in love!!! Had to have them…but…could only find a size small nightgown at my local Target. Well, I don’t know about you, but I HAVE to have a lot of room in my PJs and so a large is my preference…even an XL feels good to lounge around and sleep in and be comfy. So, I hit up every Target in the area to find a larger size of these cute PJs. And at the time, that was about 3 stores total!
I eventually found a medium gown and bought it. Much to my surprise, at my annual cookie exchange party, my sweet friend Denise Koch gave me a sugar skull gown as a Christmas gift! She said she saw it at Target and immediately thought of me! So score for TWO sugar skull gowns!!! (I have such great friends!!!)
The next year, Target carried sugar skull PJs again. This time coordinated pants and tops, and of course, I went to all the stores looking again. My husband even got into the act and would stop at Targets when we were traveling out-of-town to help me look. That year I even found Sugar Skull slippers!
I’ve accumulated quite a few gowns, pants, and tops over the past few years, and in addition to being quite comfy, they are very colorful. I always see someone wearing these PJs at the Bare Hands Gallery Day of the Dead festival in downtown Birmingham each year. So…it’s clear I’m not the only one who loves this design and theme!
Target hasn’t carried them for several years now…probably because Nick & Nora label hasn’t made them in a while. Maybe they are taking a brief break and will come back with a new design one day soon. I’m hopeful!!! Would love to see a new design to add to my collection! Plus, a few of mine are starting to show a little wear! Fingers crossed for next year!
