Being cosy is high on my list of priorities, hygge is my thing and this winter has been perfect for it despite my daily complaints about the freezing temperatures. I work from home and I often get cold as I sit at my computer typing away for hours on end. Layers, knitwear and an endless supply of tea are my best friends – until I can’t stand it anymore and I crank the heating up!
Finding suitable workwear when you work from home can be tricky. I work better if I’m properly dressed, it gets me in ‘the zone’ but I don’t actually need to be dressed up as such, unless I’m going to a meeting. I need clothes that make me look smart, keep me warm and can adapt to my lifestyle.
I received a parcel from Joules a few weeks ago and promptly did a little happy dance because good design and excellent quality go hand in hand with these guys. I dressed my daughters in Joules from head to toe when they were little and I have since been able to hand a lot of their outgrown clothes to our friends’ younger children, top marks for durability.
Clothes that transition well throughout the day are a winner in my eyes
I can wear the Monroe skinny jeans for work, do the school run and pop to the shops but I could easily dress them up for meetings with a pretty blouse and a blazer. I’m really impressed with the Kia funnel neck jumper, it is my favourite piece for the soft yet weighty fabric, slouchy style and the après ski vibe.
My spring style is looking up!
The Westbourne ankle boots have been a huge hit. My feet slide into the buttery soft leather with ease (true to size in my opinion) and their recent appearance on my Instagram feed got a lot of attention, so they must be good, right?
Is there anything better than a classic with a twist?
I’m a stripe obsessive and I believe a decent Breton should be in everyone’s wardrobe. Fresh and chic, the silver bee Harbour top is a fun classic with a twist. The Keva cardigan in French navy is a good layering option for chillier days and brace yourselves people: it has pockets!
Do you work from home? What are your cosy days wardrobe staples? I’d love to swap notes!
