Outfit Post – My Birthday Look

It was my birthday some days ago, and I am super thankful for another year. I always look forward to birthdays, mine and my loved ones. It allows me reflect on how far I have come and plan the road ahead. I enjoying celebrating life and that is really what birthdays are about. Recently, I have been thinking of how we spend time and energy and things that do not matter.

We chase friendships/relationships that are dead and buried, we seek validation from everyone both online(especially online) and in real life, and it sucks. I have chosen to not be bothered with certain things anymore and instead focus my energy and time and those that truly matter. And it has made me very happy and satisfied with my life and those in it.

Which is why I switched off my birthday notification on my personal Facebook page. That way my birthday stays private and no one gets notified. If you remember, then it means you are special. That way, I don’t have to worry about who wishes me happy birthday and who doesn’t. It felt so good. I also took myself out of a certain Whatsapp group that wasn’t doing anything for me or anyone to be honest. That felt great. I have come to understand what really matters, and that quality always supersedes quantity.

 

Outfit Post – My Birthday Look

This was my birthday look. I got this red turtleneck dress last year. This is my second time of wearing the dress. I love the way it looks. The bright colour makes me feel a lot happier. I think it is great for the current weather. I have had the black sleeveless waistcoat for a few years now. It always works well as a light outerwear, more for fashion than function. The tights came into my wardrobe last year. I reviewed on Fashion and Style Police. The tights are advertised as magic tights that do not rip, and they are yet to rip. Loving the pair.

My black boots, sunglasses and cross body bag are some of my go-to black accessories. I love them.

What to Wear When You Work From Home

What do you wear when you work from home? This is one question many self-employed/freelancers ask themselves over and over again. As many of you already know, I work from home and have done so for the past 5 years. Working home alone means I get to wear what I like, when I like. I could decide to work in my nightwear all day if I choose to, or I could work from the comfort of my bed in my loungewear. The fashion choice is mine and I love that about my job. It is liberating.

I like to get out of my sleepwear everyday, even though I work from home. The Kiddies started primary school last September, so the school run is now a morning and afternoon routine. I love it because it gets me out of the house everyday, and I like to be presentable when I step out of the house. Which is why I always take a morning shower and get dressed every morning. I like to be dressed and ready for work by 9:30am almost everyday.

 

Here are 2 things I have in mind when I am picking out what to wear when working from home –

 

Comfort

The first thing I have in mind when it comes to styling my working from home outfit is comfort. You will easily find me wearing a pair of leggings or joggers depending on the weather. I like causal comfy tops as well, and dresses are my preferred option in the summer months. Comfy clothing allow me move around freely and stylishly.

 

Material

Many people are too lazy to get out of their sleepwear. Others love the feel of their pyjamas on their skin, and live in them. I get why many find their pyjamas so comfy, they sleep and work in them. I find mine comfy too! Which is why I like go for pieces with material that feels as comfortable as my sleepwear. You usually won’t catch me wearing lace or any complicated/overly dressy material.
