It’s only Wednesday and the week already feels like it’s been going forever.  Life in lockdown has me feeling sluggish.  Not only that, but tomorrow is packed with so many back-to-back meetings that I’ve already planned for tomorrow night’s dinner to be leftovers.  Like a lot of you, I need to keep the camera on during my virtual meetings so I put in some effort when getting ready in the morning.

With a lot of us still working from home, I thought I’d share with you five pieces that have helped spark productivity on a remote working day.  They strike the right balance between work and life – helping you feel your best, but also comfortable too.  

Here are the pieces I’ve been relying on the most:

#1 – Silk Shirt & #2 – Leggings

One of my go-to WFH mullet outfits – business on top, comfy down the bottom.  I love the freedom that stretchy leggings provide but this classic silk shirt looks just as polished on Teams as it does in person.  I’ve worn this silk shirt to the office many times but it’s soft and comfortable for a day at home. And during my lunch break, I’ll throw on a jacket and go for a walk for a bit of exercise.

#3 – Turtleneck Knit & #4 – Tailored Fleece Pants 

Everlane knit* (sz XS), Everlane pants* (sz S), Nike sneakers

Two wardrobe workhorses that were bound to be paired together during these isolating times.  This is my favourite style of cashmere knit (I’ve got it in 5 colours!). And you may or may not have seen me venture into the office in these pants when I was transitioning back to office life before this most recent hiccup that’s keeping us at home. The piping down the centre of the leg gives off the impression that they’re tailored trousers.

#5 – Track Pants

And if tailored track pants aren’t your thing, how about a pair of good ol’ classic track pants.  I took the opportunity to replace my extremely old and tattered track pants during the pandemic with this classic black pair. They taper at the ankles meaning length isn’t an issue (particularly if you’re petite like me). And even though they’re track pants, they still look great styled for when you need to head out and run errands. I popped on a denim jacket and my chelsea boots to drop the younger boys at day care before coming home to start my work day. The structured pieces make me feel put together despite wearing track pants for the day.

I hope you’re all staying safe and thanks again for stopping by!
