Cozy Couture to Conquer Working from Home
Look, it's fine that you're sleeping in your clothes. It's also fine if you just want to only focus on what actually shows up in the frame of your Zoom meeting. What's below your waist doesn't really matter anymore, so why not just wear the same pajama bottoms you've had on for two weeks now or your lover's boxers or absolutely nothing at all. Frankly, it's none of their business.
Really, congratulations on washing your hair this week. You've truly gone above and beyond.
It used to be that we had to think about things like wrinkled clothing and durability because we needed to know when we flew to Paris at a moment's notice, we could shove something into our carryon, pull it out ten hours later, throw it on and instantly be devastating. Now we need to know that if we just can't be bothered to take our dress off at night, when we roll out of bed the next morning we can still make ourselves look right for the webcam.
Let's start with a nice comfy but still elegant dress. Berenik clothing is very easy to wear, chic enough to go unadorned, and adaptable to different occasions and contexts. It has a dreamy lightness to it.
These items are comfortable and hard to wrinkle, so you can do whatever you need to do to get through the day and still look fresh as a daisy.
There's a reason why Porto has such a devoted following. The fabric is durable, washable, and always looks crisp and fresh. These are clothes to be lived in. You can ride a train across Europe for 36 hours in one of these things and come out looking glam as hell -- or you could, before international travel was prohibited. But even if the only thing you're riding is your couch and five seasons of a Gordon Ramsay cooking show, you will still look great for that unexpected Facetime call.
They're flattering without being restrictive, and they quickly make themselves essential to your life by being low maintenance and adaptable.
Raw Earth Wild Sky makes clothes as comfortable as your favorite old t-shirt while also being beautiful. It's all organic cotton, sustainable and ethical.
There's no need to transition from work to leisure when you've got good cozy clothes and your work space is your living space. And time is meaningless now anyway. Get yourself a good jumpsuit, you're good to go in just a few minutes, not even long enough to start to get anxious about the future.
