A few years ago I had no idea what onesies where. In fact, I thought they were something you dressed infants in. Little did I know that in the years to come, onesies of all styles, including novelty style adult onesies would be everywhere.
It was Christmas when I first discovered onesies were a thing. My mom had received a cow print onesie as a gift from a friend and she let me try it on for a laugh. As soon as I slipped into that heavenly garment, I fell in love. What was this super comfortable, pajama style piece of clothing that you could get away with wearing from morning until night, without someone asking you to get changed into real clothes? I kept it on for hours and when my mom saw how much I liked it and how well it fit me (I'm a little shorter than her), she told me I could keep it. To this day I still have that onesie folded in my closet and I bring it out winter upon winter to keep me nice and toasty when it's cold out.
Over the years onesies have become increasingly popular. Celebs like Taylor Swift and Gigi Hadid wear onesies and showed theirs off in style on Instagram and J. Crew tried to popularize professional style onesies. So here's to all my gals out there who adore onesies and don't mind looking a little silly.

One of my goals in life is to be a unicorn, but as I haven't started developing magical powers or growing a horn just yet, I'd best stick with a unicorn onesie instead.
