My Favorite Work From Home Clothes

No, it’s not pajamas. ūüôā ¬†Do you have a work from home uniform? I realized today that I do. ¬†I have.. I don’t know.. several pairs of leggings and long tops that make up my work from home uniform. ¬†They are my go-to clothes when I know I’m not leaving the house until the evening. ¬†Even so, sometimes I just put a necklace on and go out in my ‘uniform’.

Only after I’d been working from home for 5 years or so, did I discover that if I actually got dressed I would be more productive, energetic, and happy. ¬†When you work from home it is important to stick to a normal routine of showering, getting dressed, and putting a little makeup on, even if your office is just down the hall. ¬†It’s proven (by me) that when we look good, we feel good. ¬†When we look bad, we feel bad. ¬†Plus wearing pajamas can make you think (even if in your¬†subconscious)¬†that you can get back in bed anytime.

Get out of your pajamas!

On that note, I’d like to share my current work uniform with you. ¬†It’s simple, the pieces are easy to find just about anywhere, and super comfortable, but stylish at the same time. ¬† ¬†A couple of accessories, cute shoes, and brushed hair and you could even leave the house in your work ‘uniform’! ūüėČ

Most of the clothes I wear I work from home are from H&M

Most of my ‘work clothes’ are from H&M. ¬†The clothes are cheap, comfortable, available in lots of sizes.. but as to be expected when you pay $24.95 for a sweater, it may not last as long as your favorite $150 sweater. ¬† ¬†The good thing about H&M’s prices is that you can buy a lot of things and put together several outfits for the price of one top somewhere else.

Comfortable, stylish work from home clothes

1 – H&M Melange Leggings – $9.95

2 – Oversized Knit Sweater – $24.95

3 –¬†Dylan Muscle Tee with Drawstring – $143 (pricey but it’s a top that can be worn a lot!)

4 – Oversized sweatshirt top – $24.95

5 РChain Necklace (available in gold and silver) Р$5.95

When shopping for leggings keep in mind the thickness of them if you want them to hold ‘stuff’ in. ¬†When I’m feeling particularly good about myself I wear thin leggings but on my off days I wear thicker leggings because they tend to hold ‘stuff’ in better.

Be mindful of others ladies and as Grechen says here, cover your ass when you’re wearing leggings! ¬†Leggings are not to be worn with short tops. ūüôā
