I know clothing isn't really important right now, but I do think that it can affect our feelings + mindset...and heck, I need something else to focus on for a minute...so... :)
I noticed that some of my clothing just isn't going to get worn for a while + instead of letting it jab at me every time I go to get dressed, I decided to go ahead + create a collection of go-to pieces to wear these days when leaving the house involves nothing more than a walk or bike ride around the neighborhood.
I like to start with silhouettes, so here are the ones I'm wearing these days:
:: Leggings make it easy to get onto my yoga mat + out the door to be active with minimum fuss. I like to pair leggings with a tank + sweatshirt...a button-up...a tee or tank...depending on the weather (it's spring!).
:: Linen overalls are a favorite as the days warm. I like to wear them with fitted tees + tanks.
:: My third comfortable silhouette involves soft pants + a tee, tank, sweatshirt or button-up.
Choosing three different silhouettes ensures that there is some variation built in. Having a little bit of variety in home wear is really nice, and surprisingly little is needed to provide quite a lot of it. I've found that focusing on bottoms first works well for me...as I did with my three silhouettes above (leggings, overalls, soft pants). One or two of each is plenty.
I like to keep my tops simple + solid. Again, an extensive collection is not necessary. A variety of outfits can be made from mixing those bottoms with a small number of button-ups, sweatshirts, tanks + tees. Spring weather offers a range of temperatures, so that helps vary my outfit choices from day to day as well.
A couple of other silhouettes that I can imagine being lovely for home wear are flowy dresses + soft, worn-in jeans. Some may find it helpful to their productivity mindset to just get dressed as usual during working hours. In any case, I think it might be helpful to sit down + think about a strategy for dressing in these new circumstances. Making a plan helps me to take a look in my closet rather than turning toward shopping in unbridled frustration (or boredom). The way I dress has a huge influence on my mindset, so I know that time spent shifting my wardrobe is not wasted. Moving my wardrobe around so that I'm not looking at all of the clothing that I won't be wearing for a bit enhances my ability to choose positivity each day, because I don't need any more points of frustration.
Loads of love to you my friends,
