I have recently had some requests to share some work-from-home outfits. Many people were working from home before the pandemic happened, but now there are more people than ever who are still working from home. I know that just within my own family, most of them are working remotely from home. I feel like there are both pros and cons to working from home. The pros for me would be that there is no commute, you are in the comfort of your own home and you get to create your own schedule. The biggest cons for me would be staying focused and motivated all day.

The one thing that has always helped motivate me to have a productive day is by putting myself together in the morning and putting on a cute outfit that makes me feel good. Whether it was for work or just for a day as a stay-at-home mom, I always know that my day will go much smoother if I feel good in what I am wearing. My outfit always sets the tone of my day. I technically no longer have a “real job”, but I think that most mothers would agree that taking care of kids is a full-time job. I treat my job as a mom just as I would a real job. I wake up early, I get ready for the day, I plan my day out, I schedule activities and errands that need to be done, send emails, clean, plan meals, do school pick up and drop-offs. My list goes on and on, plus I keep my blog afloat all on my own. I find that getting myself ready helps me accomplish all my goals for the day.
I know that loungewear has been a big trend during the last year and a half. While I do love wearing some comfy loungewear sets, I do think that they can be overdone and get boring. I usually change into my loungewear in the evening after I am done doing everything I need to get done for the day. Loungewear helps me whined down my day and relax. I have a hard time wearing it all day because it’s hard to stay motivated when I am wearing something that I could easily wear to bed. This is why when it comes to putting together a work-from-home outfit, I stay away from the loungewear, but still keep it comfortable.
Today I want to share some work-from-home outfits that don’t include loungewear. These outfits are easy, affordable, and comfortable. I will also say that all these outfits would pair great with slippers as well!
Look 1: Leggings + Cardigan
Once the cold weather hits, leggings become my best friend. Add a cozy cardigan and I will see you in spring. I love my faux leather leggings. I finally splurged on a pair of Spanx faux leather leggings during the Nordstrom sale this summer. I also have a more affordable pair as well. I just feel like the faux leather can dress up your legging look a little more than traditional leggings. I am also loving this cozy oversized cardigan from Express.
Look 2: Leggings + Tunic
