NYE-Long Live PJ's

New Year's Eve 2015 is on the horizon and for a lot of people that means a party of some sort. Many women are out shopping for any thing that sparkles, heels, dresses, handbags and such. Personally, I am looking for cute and warm pajamas.

Pajamas come in so many styles, designs and numerous colors, these are not your grandmas pj's.
The goal is to be warm, but it is a plus if you are cute and stylish as well.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director for Pantone Color Institute had this statement to say about the colors chosen:
