Sheet Style

I have this kind of random theory that you can tell where a person is at in life solely by looking at their sheets.

For example, if you walk into a guy’s apartment and he has black sheets. Run.  There’s only one reason to buy black sheets and it’s not cleanliness.

If a friend has paper-thin white sheets that look like they’ve been through a hurricane, I’d place a large bet that they were out of college (I‘m so grown up!) but still in their 20’s (My disposable income goes toward booze, not bedding.).

And me? Well, the minute I hit my 30’s I saw my sheets as this sort of life marker. You see, I would offer that the mark of true adulthood is being at a place where you don’t just clean your sheets, you change your sheets.

I have always been a white sheet girl (oh the power of bleach), so my bed has never been anything but the color of snow. And while I have always been big on washing, it wasn’t until recently that I got a wild hair and started ordering multiple sets of sheets for each bed.  And quality sheets at that (this gorgeous monogrammed set is by Peacock Alley – the best).

There is something so proper about actually changing your sheets on regular intervals. Giving them a break from my self-made room service and weekend long naps. They last longer. They look better. They are cleaner.

It feels so simple but is one of those things that you don’t worry about until you start picking your clothes up off the floor and putting them on velvet hangers, sweeping the floors and taking a little pride in where you call home.

Because I actually am an adult now. I have the baby to prove it.
