No, it’s not pajamas. 🙂 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’! 😉
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.
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 – Chain Necklace (available in gold and silver) – $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. 🙂
