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.

Nightwear and Underwear Wishlist

I pay special attention to my nightwear and underwear pieces. So I make sure I go for quality items that would stand the test of time and look great. I update my nightwear and underwear collection quite regularly and I am forever looking out for new additions to fill up spaces of those that I have discarded. Nightwear and underwear pieces are clothing we were everyday so they need to be made from good quality fabrics. And they need to be well designed too.

Here are some items that should be on every girl’s wishlist this season.

If you are after some nice quality nightwear, then look no further. This stunning Promise Luxury Rigoletto Pyjama set by UK Lingerie is all you need and more. I love this gorgeous piece a lot. The floral design is so pretty with the lace trim details. I also love the coral-red colour, the satin fabric and the tie waist. This pyjama set screams luxury from a distance and I love it.

It is definitely my favourite nightwear at the moment. I love how it feels next to my skin. Definitely going to be sleeping like a baby in this pyjamas set. What do you think of it?

This Combstooth Bralette and Brief set by Hidden Beneath Underwear is simply amazing. I love the organic bamboo cotton fabric.  I am also a huge fan of the combstooth pattern on the front and a slight terry cloth texture on the back. It is a beautiful set and feels so soft on the skin. Sizes come in small, medium and large.

This gorgeous underwear set is from the Cotton Collection. The collection is made from organic fabrics from traceable sources, which is great.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Baby, it’s cold outside! It is painfully cold at the moment. I finding it extremely hard to get out of bed with the darkness and the chill in the air. I wish I could stay under my duvet, with a cup of tea, all day, but that is not my reality. My reality is, I need to get stuff done, which means my wake-up time is usually on or before 7am.

NEW FSP OOTD

 

How are you all coping with cold? I am indoors most of the time, so I am nice and warm. And when I need to step out, I make sure I am well layered up. I just recovered from an annoying flu (my first ever full blown flu), so I am not in the mood for any more sickness. If you spot me out and about, I will be rocking my many layers of clothing.

On cold days like this, I am grateful I work from home. It is a lot harder to earn a living working for yourself, that I know, but the pros outweigh the cons massively for me. And I appreciate that so much more in the winter months.

I am currently typing out this post from the comfort of my sofa, wearing my new fluffy nightgown, and I am happy with where I am at in life. I turn 30 in a few days, and I feel like I am in a good place. I can’t imagine any other job that could allow me work in my nightgown, so the flexibility of my job is the best part of it.

Speaking of nightgowns, I think I would need to get some shopping done. I am in need of some new pyjamas and nightgowns. I have a bit of an obsession with nightwear collections, but for someone who spends a great deal of time in my nightwear, I like to have quite a few. I have my eye on a few womens nightgowns by David Nieper, I need to check them out. In the winter months, I like my nightgowns thick and fluffy to retain the body heat, and David Nieper has a couple of warm fleece nightgowns that tick all the right boxes. I can picture myself wearing some of these comfy/stylish pieces already!
