Here’s what I’ve learned about what to wear when working from home »» I’m sooo much more productive once I’ve gotten out of my pyjamas and put on some actual clothes.
Here’s the thing – I know how tempting it is to stay in our PJs throughout our day, and I’ve been guilty of doing it myself. But, after a while of doing it, things start to blend and mesh and not in the best way. My nights turn into my days, which then turn into my nights again. It becomes more and more difficult to distinguish between “work time” and “chill time.” And you know what that means?? All you workaholic perfectionists out there know – “work time” becomes every waking hour and “chill time” vanishes into some mysterious abyss.
One way of practicing self-care and protecting our wellness is to set up some boundaries. For instance, such and such time = “work time” and such and such time = “chill time.” We can set these boundaries by scheduling actual time slots – i.e. 9-5 pm = work time. But, we can also help reinforce these boundaries by changing into clothes that help us get into “work time” mode.
Let’s face it, our PJs should only be restricted to “chill time.” They should help us feel calm and comfortable and ready to get some rest and relaxation. And if we’re also working in them ALL the time (a work sesh in PJs every once in a while is fine – we’re only human after all!), it becomes harder to fully get into a relaxed state. And no one wants to fall asleep with the stressors of work on their mind. My anxious folks especially know how difficult that is for our mental health.
With all this being said, I also still want to feel comfortable as I’m working from home. And that’s where I try to find a happy medium between PJ and work attire with some comfy casual outfits I can change into each day – which brings me to today’s post.
Here are 5 work-from-home outfit ideas (using sustainable and vegan items) that I turn to again and again. These keep me feeling comfortable but also dressed up enough to take on the day.
Hope to inspire you to be your best work-from-home self! Happy continued self-care <3
BTW – I know some people feel best getting a bit more dressed up before starting their work-from-home day, and all power to ya my sweet friend! ?
