Loungewear That Also Works As Work-From-Home Attire

This December it will be one year since COVID-19 reared its ugly head in the Wuhan Province of China. Twelve months later we are headed into our second lockdown as the prediction that cold weather would result in a massive uptick in cases was sadly correct.

That said; there have been some major breakthroughs in COVID19 vaccines, and experts are predicting that we might be getting back to a more typical life by spring 2021. There is a light at the end of the tunnel!

Still, the fact remains that due to the lockdown, we’re not going anywhere anytime soon. Even after a vaccine is available, many companies are discussing making the work-from-home method permanent at least part-time since office space is not cheap and clearly many jobs CAN be done remotely.

It’s so tempting to just wear pajamas all the time while working from home, but don’t. It can really blur the lines between work time and off time. Let’s face it, our reality is becoming so fragmented already. But that doesn’t mean it’s time to break out your suits and heels. One of the best things about working from home is we get to be very comfortable! Fashion Reverie is here to help you answer the question “Can comfortable be chic?” YES!

Cashmere is comfortable, warm, and ridiculously soft. But it is not inexpensive.

Nadaam was determined to produce the world’s finest cashmere sweaters but make them at affordable prices. The company is also deeply committed to sustainability as well as fair wages. They work directly with herders in Mongolia, to keep prices down. Their high-quality elegant pieces are work appropriate and nap appreciative.

A few tips for keeping work life separate from the home, which becomes so difficult when your home is your office.

  • Have a dedicated workspace. If you can’t dedicate an entire room, designate an area. That area is to be used exclusively for work.

 

  • It sounds odd but since smell is strongly tied to mood, spritzing yourself with your ‘work’ perfume or cologne (only used for work) is a way to signal your brain it’s time to be productive!

 

  • Make sure your office knows there are certain times when you are NOT available. You won’t answer texts or emails. These times are strictly for relaxation and recharging.

 

  • Schedule one or two breaks during your day where you take a walk around the block (weather permitting) or perhaps march in place for 10 minutes, something to get your blood flowing.
