Working from home for an extended period of time presents unique sartorial challenges. Outfits need to balance comfort and function in equal parts and make us feel ready to tackle the day. Never have video calls been such an integral part of my work day. And while the old saying goes ‘business at the front, party at the back’, I’ve noticed many putting a modern spin on this old adage to our new WFH/videoconferencing life by mullet dressing – ‘business on top, casual down the bottom’.
Keeping sartorial standards high (even if it is with just an elevated top like this navy Marks & Spencer one I’m wearing here) will no doubt inspire you to be at your most productive and boost your morale.
I received these Everlane flats at the end of February and they are amazingly comfortable. They’ve been great for our morning walks and the taupe colour goes with everything. I shared my initial thoughts in my review on the shoes here, but since posting my review, they have softened with wear and become even more comfortable.
And as for this Uniqlo trench coat, I picked it up during a promotion earlier in January and it was a steal at $109.90 reduced from $129.90. It has since sold out but I’ve linked some similar options in this post. While a Burberry trench has been on my wishlist for the longest time, it gets pushed further and further down my list given the exorbitant price tag. I don’t really see myself biting the bullet any time soon given there are so many high quality affordable options available (like this one, or this one or this one).
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you’re all staying well and positive x
