    I read the “why are american houses so big” article this morning (before seeing your post) and thought of your blog!

    I have those very same pyjamas, which I call “the most pyjamy pyjamas a girl can own”. Wish Muji would come out with a similar, just-as-soft, short-sleeve version (shorts and shirt) for summer, and thus solve my summer sleepwear needs

      I also have these pajamas. Wearing them now! So cozy. Bought them on a visit to New York in May and wore them in my freezing hotel room.
