Being self-employed takes a lot of work. Although I work part-time, I still spend a lot of time at home creating content and editing photos. I absolutely love working from home, it’s one of the greatest aspects about owning a blog. I get to do what I love, from the comfort of my own space.
But, working from home comes with its downsides. Sometimes I find it difficult to get motivated, and taking an afternoon nap has never been more tempting. It also means my office is my home, and so switching off isn’t always as easy as I’d like. Most of the time, I work from my desk in my room, but I still like to have a daily routine, and change out of pyjamas as if I’m heading into an office.
I think sticking to a routine helps me feel a little more put together, and when it comes to getting dressed, I have a really simple style because comfort is key.
Leggings are always the go-to. I’m a huge fan of leggings, and I just seem to gravitate towards them on days I’ll be spending at home. High-waisted of course. I’m not one of those people who can sit in jeans at home, even if I have been out of the house in denim, I change into leggings or sweats the minute I get home. They’re not comfy enough!
I own a ridiculous number of leggings, and one of the things I love is that they’re so inexpensive. The same goes for jumpers and hoodies. Today’s jumper is one that I’ve owned for years from Topshop (it’ll be included in my spring favourites post), and it’s never failed me.
Even though I spend most of my time in the house, I do like to get outside for fresh air every so often. On certain days, I head to a local café or meet up with friends, so I need to look like I actually tried to put an outfit together. It’s nice to feel presentable.
My distressed denim jacket is a gifted piece I’ve owned for a year or two, and now the weather is getting warmer, it’s the perfect extra layer to add to a simple outfit. The heavy denim is double-layered, so it keeps me warm, and is long enough to wear with leggings.
The one thing with leggings, is that I like to wear something a little longer with them. Either a longer jumper or an oversized jacket. For me, cropped tops and leggings aren’t a favourite combo.
I would definitely class this outfit as a typical “work from home” look. The home days are usually different variations of this four-piece outfit – simple and inexpensive!
