So it’s no secret that the world has been forced to work from home… and so therefore it’s no secret that a lot of us have either been tempted to or have been working in their PJs or joggers or something equally comfortable. Do you not remember when all the online retailers said they saw an increase in tops sales, but not bottoms? You know, video call fashion and all!
However, I’m one of those people who needs to get up, get dressed and actually get ready like I’m going to leave the house to be ready to work. I learnt quite early that getting dressed as like I’m going to work makes me actually ready to work. All the way down to brushing my hair and sorting out my brows.
And while I often spend my evenings in my PJs and my weekends in over sized t-shirts, I thought it was worth sharing with you some of the outfits I’ve been wearing over the past weeks.
I learnt quite quickly after purchasing this jumper is that I really suit red! There’s something about it, and especially this jumper that really suits me. I have to say I bought this jumper some time ago from Debenhams (such an underrated store, and I hope they make it through this), so I’m actually so surprised you can still get hold of it, but coloured high necked jumpers? Yup, they’re for me!
Glasses and earrings are from Primark, shoes are from Dorothy Perkins and the bracelet is from Pandora.
Then can we take a moment to appreciate these jeans? I’ve always been a super skinny, super high waisted jeans that feel almost too tight round the ankles. And I was like 100% sure I’d never go for anything else ever again. Then Mom jeans became a thing, I had a pair from TopShop and they just didn’t fit properly – they were waaaay to loose around the waist and bum and then uncomfortably tight around the thighs.
Then walked in the New Look Lift & Shape Mom Jeans. God these are amazing! Thick, structured jeans that feel good quality and have that retro feeling. They fit perfectly round the waist, pulls my bum in perfectly. And then they are slimming around the thighs (but not too tight) and then straighten off a little around the bottom.
I just love these and thought they deserved a shoutout. What are your fav jeans?
So for those days I just need to get too much work done and I’m not sure how I’m going to get through it all, I proper dress up for the office. And in a proper New Look appreciation post, both the camel coloured trousers and the top are both from New Look! Literally love these so much! Feel like a proper city chic and because the sleeves are see through and the trousers are a satin-y blend material, they don’t feel too heavy or warm (which lets face it, is getting slowly more important as the heatwave goes on).
Last outfit. And now this is the one that makes me feel like a proper cool kid. Dark wine red pleather shorts, cool black and white heart shirt, high top black boots, sunglasses, and heart earrings? Don’t really get cooler than that.
Also, I so miss wearing heeled boots and going out about the town… feel short!

These all look so cute! I love the first one even though red doesn’t suit me 😂 actually I think if anything a jumper would so I’ll have to look out for one! The earings you paired with it are gorgeous too. I recently got some grey and white striped trousers from H&M and I’ve been living in them whilst alternating between various crop tops 😂 Great post! ✨💕
I feel like I completely forget H&M exists sometimes! Those trousers sound amazing though!
Love all of these looks! Inspired to get dressed up more!!

I have been living in all the PJ’s and athleisure! When I have a video call I have been rocking the quarantine mullet – business on the top PJ’s on the bottom. Ha!
hahaha, I’m sure you’re not alone! I just can’t work in PJs! x
Love every single look! I adore the coziness of the first one and dying over those shorts.
I mean who doesn’t love jeans and a jumper?! ha! x
Those are fabulous outfits all around. I’ve still been getting dressed up normally because of all of the online shopping, there’s a delivery almost daily…LOL
Hahahahahah that’s hilarious! Money’s tight for me atm, so I’m on a strong spending ban, but it means that I’m really starting to love the things I already own! x
I can’t wait to be able to get dressed for something again! 🙂 Shopping my closet again will be so fun!
hahah yeah I got out my Summer clothes at the weekend that I forgot I’d packed away, it was like going shopping! x
Well done on getting up and getting dressed up while on lockdown. All your outfits are lovely especially the second one. Your picks are really nice.
Ahaha thanks! It’s the only way I keep motivated! x
I love those topis with the puffy sheer sleeves! I’ve honestly been wearing smock dresses most of the time because it’s like wearing a tent hahaha xx
I know what you mean, being on a schedule, being productive and getting up early and getting dressed all help. And may as well look good! Love these three looks!
Glad you agree and love the outfits! x
Ah yes love all three looks!
I’m with you! I have to get dressed everyday in order to feel productive! Love all of these outfits you put together!

Love all of these! I think I’m missing out as I’ve not worn anything pretty ever since this quarantine started. 😂
haha. Highly recommend it, makes you feel kinda normal! x
Going to try out the Debenhams, it’s a nice list again. Love to use the Primark always.
Debenhams has closed in the UK and it makes me so sad! x
