When it's this hot outside, all I want to do is stay inside. And wear as little as possible.

So maybe I'm not running around in my lingerie. But if I were, it would look like this. I love bloomers — more on the feminine side versus cute. They are functional and comfortable. And if I looked like this in them, maybe I would run around in bloomers all day. Inside, of course.

In the warmer months, I am definitely a boxers kind of gal. That and a tank to sleep in, perfect. With lace playing a big role this season, I love the idea of adding it into sleepwear.

DKNY is one step ahead with the American Riviera boxer short — flirty lace boxers with ribbon drawstring and crochet trim. Comfortable and pretty, yes!

While we're on the subject of lingerie, can I please share one of my all-time favorite beauties with you?

Helena Christensen, you are delicious.

This bodysuit by Helena Christensen for Triumph (directly below) will be available soon. Along with other pieces in her stunning collection. The danish fashion model, who forever changed video with Chris Isaac in Wicked Game, continues to bring innocently sexy to you.

If Helena doesn't make you want to buy beautiful lingerie, nothing will. And February's the month to do it, so go already!

pinklingerieDelicate. Feminine. Beautiful.

I am crushing on this Mimi Holliday by Damaris Bisou Bisou Cherie lace lingerie set, just in time for Valentine's Day. It's just so pretty. 

I envision wearing this under a pencil skirt and blouse. Or, jeans and a tee. Or, under a fur coat with nothing else in between. 

There's something to be said for wearing frilly extra specials under ordinary clothes. They don't have to be seen to capture attention. And they don't have to be for anyone but yourself. Of course, if your significant other happens to catch a glimpse, the better.

I am not one to shop the day after Christmas. Especially the mall. However, when hubby and sister come a calling, I step up to help.

After spending the entire day at the mall yesterday personal shopping for my husband and one of my sisters, I am proud of our productivity — crowds, and all. We crossed everything off both lists! 

Though nothing was on my list, my eyes did a double take when I came across these Natori mesh panties in the lingerie department with my sister. I couldn't resist 3 for $45! They're just so pretty and feminine. There are several versions of the Bliss panty, so if cotton or lace are more up your alley, Nordstrom's got them.

Starting the new year off with a little something sexy under my clothes just makes me smile.
