I’d love to know what your work set up is right now. I know some professions don’t allow working from home and I do know some people who were working from home are now back in the office. Or some kind of hybrid situation. Or work from home indefinitely. I have friends and family who fall everywhere on the spectrum.
Mike and I are still fully working from home. (Always normal for me, haha, new normal for Mike.) At the very beginning of the pandemic, I was all about being cozy, cozy– it felt luxurious to hang around in the house in sweats and a sweatpants. Then that got old, and it got warmer, and I switched over to comfortable and cute summer dresses. (Things also felt a bit more “normal” from July until November-ish with cases down and more to do outside.) Now that we’re back in the dead of winter, cases are bad, and there’s really just not a lot to do…. I found myself just down about getting dressed. It was a huge reason why I started the Week of Outfits post– it was forcing me to not wear the same thing every day since it was being documented.
WORK FROM HOME FIT
Anyway, this is a pretty good representation of what I feel most comfortable in during the day. From a physically comfortable standpoint, and also what makes me feel the most productive mentally. Just cozy enough where I don’t feel uncomfortable, but still put together enough where I don’t feel like an absolute slug. (There’s a balance, you know.)
I just bought this J. Crew turtleneck and I feel like it’s my 2021 version of the ever-popular funnel neck from last spring/summer. I sized up one size because of the high/low hemline. I have a long torso so I didn’t want it to be too cropped. It’s exactly what I like to wear while working from home. Expect to see it in heavy rotation.
The turtleneck is great because you can leave it up for a slouchy look or fold it down for a cleaner look– I’ve been doing both and it somehow makes the turtleneck take on a totally different vibe.
I will confess I added the shoes for visual effect only. I typically go barefoot completely and when I go out, it’s been so cold that I typically opt for my mini Ugg boots…. or sneakers. Especially since I’m waiting for my pinky toe to heal. But these little buckle shoes from Ann Mashburn are so chic and I haven’t shown them off enough 😉.
