I don’t know about you, but over the past 18 months, I’ve gone through many phases of lockdown dressing. From the “I’m going to get properly dressed for the day and wear jeans and a blazer” phase to the “Imma stay in my PJs allllll day” phase to the “Loungewear is life” phase. Right now? I’m at a stage that basically combines all three of those into one. On some days I wear proper clothes and on other days, it’s best described as a mash-up between my trackies and PJs (and I’ll of course change into a fresh pair of PJs for bed because I’m classy like that 😉). Let’s face it, lockdown sucks and no one’s having a good time of it. So whatever phase you’re in, I’m sure you’re doing what you can to get through it.
We’re almost at the end of our 7th week in this lockdown and this week, I’ve prioritised comfort. So I thought I’d put together this post to share the comfortable bits that I’ve been wearing that have been just right while I continue to work from home.

Monday: The ‘sweatpants-are-all-that-fits-me-right-now’ look
Everlane sweatshirt* (sz S), Everlane sweatpants* (sz S)
In clear breach of the Plastics Rule (here’s a refresher: On Wednesdays, we wear pink. You can’t wear a tank top two days in a row. We only wear jeans or track pants on Fridays. You can only wear your hair in a ponytail once a week…), I opted for comfort to start my week. I wasn’t feeling particularly motivated to get into ‘proper’ clothes but was perfectly happy (and productive!) in my sweats.
Tuesday: A ‘semi-proper-clothes’ look
Scanlan Theodore tank (old season, similar here), Everlane pants* (sz S, review here)
A bit of an in-between outfit for Tuesday, I paired this silk Scanlan Theodore tank (that was a c. 2015 purchase) with these tailored track pants. I’ve got these pants in three colours (you can read my review here) and I’ve raved about them numerous times on my Instagram. We’ve been enjoying some warm winter days here in Sydney and my desk is right beside the window so it’s been nice to soak up some rays while getting my work done.
Wednesday: The “are-sweat-shorts-a-thing-because-they-should-be!” look
Everlane jumper* (sz S), Everlane shorts* (sz S)
I’m totally embracing the track suit look here in this super comfy co-ord. I left the house on Wednesday to get my second jab (yay!) and rugged up in the process (we’re talking some knit, coat & scarf action!). It ended up being a really warm day so I changed into this co-ord as soon as I got home. If sweat shorts weren’t a thing already, I have a feeling they will be given all this time we’re spending at home!
Thursday: The ‘make-an-effort-with-dressy-sweatpants’ look
Summery Copenhagen top (sz 1, and FYI – a recent name change from Cecilie Copenhagen), Everlane pants* (sz S – review here)
Injecting a bit of print into my WFH ensemble with a classic Summery Copenhagen piece (the name change from Cecilie Copenhagen is taking a while to get used to). This top has been in my collection for the past couple of years and was a tried and true piece while I was on maternity leave a couple of years ago. It’s lightweight and soft and the timeless print looks great on Zoom.
Friday: The “wannabe-sport-luxe-but-make-it-business” look
Everlane shirt* (sz 0), Arket tee (sz S), Everlane track pants* (sz S)
And to round off my week in outfits… well, comfy trousers are hardly a revelation! These are a bit of a fancy-schmancy pair and they’re perfect for when you want to feel like wearing your PJs at your desk but don’t want to look too shabby when you need to answer the door to take delivery of your DHL parcel, if you know what I mean.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
