I can’t keep my jeans on. It’s a problem.
The second my foot passes the threshold of the door, I’m hunting out a pair of joggers/leggings/pj bottoms. Anything with a bit of extra give. And something that I can potter around my house in, bending down picking up toys etc without feeling like my insides are being restricted. I’ll be very honest and say that my current loungewear choices have seen better days. More often than not they’re a bit bobbled and perhaps a little too stretched out. I’ve been thinking for a while about upgrading these for more comfy pieces in my wardrobe that aren’t so… Worn. So I thought I’d share some finds with you at the bottom of this post.
But mainly, I wanted to pose the question to see if you even don loungewear at home? Or are you one of those fancy people who find it absurd, and feel that when a person is dressed for the day they must remain so, until it’s night time and one is dressing for bed?
My father-in-law is very much anti-pajamas/loungewear during the day and must despair at the state he sees me in sometimes. But my comfort is of more importance to me than approval, so joggers it is. It’s become a bit of a running joke in the family actually. His opinion that is, not my joggers. Although I wouldn’t be surprised if my usual disarray is a topic of conversation too.
I kind of wish I was one of those people who wanted to look ‘put together’ all the time. It seems like a much sexier way to live. But with a 18 month old who seems to ALWAYS find a way to get snot all over me and my inherent desire for stretchy waistbands and general comfort, I’m not sure I’ll ever be in the ‘swans around the house in jeans and a shirt’ kind of girl.
And don’t even get me started on my love of fluffy socks.
Above we have a few loungewear items I currently have in my collection. And a few I’m soon going to add. I’m currently trying to decide between the loungewear set and jumpsuit by ASOS, they had me at ‘soft brushed’ and ‘super soft touch’. I like the little hoop zipper and the raw edge on the ASOS Curve set. You can never go wrong with an Adidas Originals Sweatshirt and I’m thinking of paring this particular one with some Amie Joggers from Hush. Bit more spendy than I would usually go for but they have become quite iconic and flexible enough for working from home but also making the school run, slightly put together. I own both the Uniqlo drape pant in red and the joggers in black print and all I can say is that the waistbands are heaven. But we all know I like a bit of Uniqlo.
