These days, the line between pajamas and daytime wardrobe has blurred considerably. Pants with buttons seem like a formality I have no real use for and, like many, I've spent a significant amount of time scouring the internet for all things soft, comfy, and lounge-friendly.

One of my favorite finds? Lake pajamas.

These sophisticated cotton jammies make me wonder why I've waited so long to invest in more grown-up sleepwear (especially now that we just call them "clothes"). With all the softness of my favorite 15-year-old threadbare t-shirt, Lake delivers pajamas that are made to roll out of bed and just keep going (and even answer the door for the delivery person without total embarrassment).


Their chic silhouettes are cut from the most luxurious Pima cotton, which feels both fancy and laid back. It's that kind of comfort that makes you want to light a candle and put on your most expensive skin cream, but also eat ice cream on the couch after the kids go to bed.

Launched in 2014 by two mamas who couldn't find their ideal pajamas, Lake celebrates the most comfortable moments that make life sweeter: Sunday pancakes and epic living room forts. Stolen moments in the hammock with a good book. Sunset walks that end with a glass of wine on the front porch. With simple silhouettes and classic patterns, they offer a variety of styles to choose from.

Here are the Lake pajama sets I'll be living in all summer:

Pima Shorts set

Lake Pima Shorts Set Marine

These are my new summer uniform. Sweet details like contrast piping and rounded hemlines feel stylish and modern enough to wear into the afternoon while the breathable cotton makes sleep cool and comfortable.

$84

Maternity Short Long set

Lake Maternity Short Long Set

Who deserves a cozy set of pajamas more than a pregnant mama? No one. This softer-than-soft set is cut to provide your bump with ample space to grow while the nursing-friendly snaps ensure you can keep wearing them right on through the fourth trimester.

$114

Vintage Long Sleeve set

Lake Vintage Long Sleeve Set

Perfect for cool rooms and hot sleepers, I'm personally a big fan of the long sleeves and shorts combo. Made from a modal/lycra blend, this slinky set is lighter than Lake's usual Pima, but equally as soft.

$98

Pima Weekend Tank gown

Lake Weekend Tank Gown

Nightgown or bathing suit cover up? Up to you. Versatile, cozy and perfect for those summer mornings that find you outside in the sandbox at what feels like the crack of dawn.

$68

Kids Short set

Lake Kids Shorts Set

Because cozy pajamas are a family affair. Say goodnight to getting ready for bed struggles. Butter soft with adorable contrast hems, the bigger challenge will be getting your kiddo to change out of them. (Bonus: You can totally twin with your littles in the grown-up version.)
