Loungewear Faves

Thursday, September 19, 2013

First off, its almost Friday, which is awesome.

As much as I like to shop for new things and share my favorite fashion pieces with you all, this is my typical outfit of the day, or OOTD, if you will....



I've mentioned this before, but in case some of you don't know, I work from home. I have a Masters degree but I wear yoga pants to work. Sounds kind of sweet, right? Without getting into the nerdy details of what I do, and no its not anything IT-related nor am I a telemarketer, I will say that it has been an adjustment. While I love the flexibility working from home offers, it's not all that glamorous and I actually miss being in the office.

When we lived in DC, I wore suits and cute pencil skirts every day... clearly things have changed! Besides my size and ability to walk in heels... I also have a closet full of these clothes and nothing to do with them... sigh

When people ask if its hard to stay focused working from home or if I shower and get ready in the morning even though no one sees me, my response is yes and no, respectively. No seriously, I assume its similar to what a stay at home mom goes through in that there are a million things that need done but you train yourself to focus on the task at hand. There are a few things I could not do without, and in case you were wondering where this post was heading, there it is. 

Oh and I do shower and put makeup on, but not usually until my lunch break and hopefully before I scare the bejesus out of the poor delivery guy who drops off my late night shopping finds. 

Clothing
I don't usually shop at Old Navy because some things don't fit me well, but I loooove their loungewear. It's super soft, washes well, and its cheap. You can pretty much always find a 20-40% off coupon code, and who doesn't love coupon codes?! I try to go for items that are comfortable, obviously, but can also be worn while running errands without looking like a bum!

Keurig K-Cup Coffee Maker: The first thing I do in the morning is turn this baby on and make myself some vanilla coffee (lately with a few sprinkles of pumpkin pie spice). The hubs got me this for either a birthday or Christmas gift, and that might sound weird, but its the best. I love buying the sample packs of k-cups and trying new coffees, plus you can use it just for hot water, make iced tea or coffee, or hot chocolate.

Emerald Cinnamon Roast Almonds: Working 20 feet from the kitchen and not eating all day is tough, so I try to make myself some sort of protein every morning. If I get hungry throughout the day, I grab these almonds. They taste like Thanksgiving in the form of an almond. Go get some, now.

I also like to eat granola for a snack, so I've had the pumpkin granola around a lot lately!

What are your favorite loungewear pieces? If any of you work from home (that includes being a stay at home momma!), is there anything that helps get you through the day? Also, has anyone sold clothing on Poshmark? I have really nice quality work clothes and I'm thinking of trying to sell them!

  1. Lucky you to be able to work from home! Honestly I bet it can be hard to stay focused when you know there's so many other things you can be doing at that moment. As soon as I get home every day I take off my jeans and put on yoga pants. There's nothing better! I'll have to check out Old Navy's lounge wear. I never shop there!

  2. I saw your #ootd on Insta as I was getting ready for work this morning and I was jealous!! I don't have to wear a suit (thank goodness!) but I do have to look pulled together. Which is unfortunate because I am so NOT a morning person!

  5. Thanks for posting your thoughts on working from home! I always wonder what that would be like, and it seems like there are definitely pros and cons for both. Unfortunately my job won't cooperate, but I have a friend who can do 2 days in the office and 2 at home...that seems perfect!
