Christmas Morning Pajamas
LAKE just opened in Buckhead at the corner of West Paces Ferry and Northside Drive. LAKE was founded in 2014 in Savannah by longtime friends Anne Read Lattimore and Cassandra Cannon after struggling to find better pajama options while spending time at home as new mothers. After the first wash, my flannel jammies felt like an old friend. Not too hot, so very soft with adorable contrasting piping and pockets in both the top and bottoms, which suits me fine. I’m short, and I wasn’t swimming in them. Flannel set in grove and port. $128.00.
