Today’s post is in collaboration with Glamify and the items shown have been gifted. As you’ll know I’m quite the fashion crusader and don’t tend to purchase/accept anything brand new unless it’s of a good quality, that will stand the test of time, so I hope you will trust my judgement when I say these outfits are gorgeous and will last – you can visit their website here.
Well over a year after the beginning of the pandemic, where COVID-19 took over the world, everyone’s working life changed and the new normal was to work from home. Since that time, my working contract as a Property Manager has changed meaning that I now permanently work from home or out on the road visiting the housing developments/apartment blocks that I manage.
I’ve found that as an introvert (many people find this surprising and I’d like to do an entire post dedicated to this) I’ve been far more productive and much prefer the comfort of my own home to work without being distracted by others around me and the buzz of office life.
So, what do you wear when you’re a home based employee, that regularly has video calls on Teams or Zoom, when you don’t really fancy grabbing your blazer and shirt, to gab away about work related things (personally, my work related things could be anything from reviewing the grounds maintenance or cleaning on a site or a budget, to health, safety and fire risks).
Loungewear is of course the go to usually, but I’m not talking about your typical kind of loungewear (an old band tee with leggings or pyjamas is my usual go to), I’m talking about the fancier kind, the kind that you can chop and change with your “going out” outfits to be comfortable and a little bit different – I wore the top from this grey set out for a night recently, with a pair of jeans and my white platform Converse for a dinner date with Aaron.
If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know that I like to wear things that are a little bit different, and these loungewear sets aren’t the kind that I’ve seen all over my Instagram or TikTok – the details are original (just look at the ruching and gathering on the sleeves!) and unique enough for me to think “yep, no basic bitch vibes coming from this outfit”.
So what do you wear when you’re working from home? Whatever makes you feel the most comfortable! If you want to curl up on the sofa with your laptop wearing you pyjamas, that’s fine! If you want to get your glam on every day – go for it!
In summary, I’m glad to finally have something new to wear (nothing beats a new set of garms) and some new places around my house to shoot them – we’ve literally just finished off our bedroom and I obviously decided to take full advantage of it!
