The New Normal: How to look good working at home (even in your pajamas!)
I had to laugh when I saw that April 16 is #NationalPajamaDay. With stay at home orders across the country, I think most of us have been having pajama days (weeks??) already. I admit there has been a day or two where I stayed in the jammies I slept in all. day. long. Usually, though, I get out of my comfy cozy P.J’s and change into another said pair of comfy cozy clothes, that could easily be my pajamas. And all of this would be fine if it was 1982 and my connection to the outside world was simply a hardwired phone. But now, daily, I’m face timing, zooming, skyping and people can SEE ME! So, I thought I’d put together a few comfortable ways to dress while you’re at home so you won’t be embarrassed when that facetime call comes in. Oh, and if you want to sleep in some of these picks, I won’t tell! 🙂
Let’s start with color!!
A vibrant splash of color is one of the easiest pick me ups I can suggest! And a pretty color near your face brightens your complexion, especially if you’re not wearing much makeup.
Comfy with a touch of couture
These are the types of pieces I think every woman should have in her closet. I rely on pieces like these a lot. For some, it’s everyday essentials, for others, more casual weekend type wear. But for the time we’re living in right now, I think these are 24-7 staples.
Here are a few more things to think about as you’re adjusting to more time at home. Try to establish some kind of routine that gets you up and moving. Take the time to blow dry your hair. Spritz on a little perfume. Use a tinted moisturizer instead of full foundation. I know I feel better when I still take the time to implement my pre-pandemic routine. Maybe not every day. But I definitely notice a difference in how I look at the day when my hair is fixed a bit and I get a little waft of my favorite scent. Even in my pajamas 🙂
