The last time I put on actual pants for work was March 18, as I started working from home on the 19th. Since then, it’s been sweatpants, leggings, and shorts. I’ve been able to cycle through my vast t-shirt collection of sports shirts, university shirts, and race shirts.
The one really good thing is that I haven’t had to do my hair or put on makeup. Both were sometimes a drag for me to do when I was still going to work; some days I just didn’t feel like doing either but felt like I had to. When it comes to my hair now, sometimes I wear it down—I don’t straighten or curl it like I used to—or I put it up in a ponytail with a headband; the second is much more common.
There have been times lately when I miss getting dressed up—I had bought two dresses from QVC right around the start of everything and I’ve yet to wear them—but for the most part, I like not having to plan out what I’m going to wear; I just wake up in the morning and put on leggings and whatever t-shirt is next in rotation. I’m able to sleep in and not worry about having time to get ready.
I’m able to be comfy in my own room. There were some days when I was going to work that all I wanted to wear was a hoodie and leggings, and now that’s actually a reality. It’s just nice to not have to put a lot of effort into clothes and your appearance, you know? It takes a lot of stress off.
How does your work from home wardrobe compare to what you normally wear to work?
