My friend Lisa and I were chatting, over dinner on a patio in Tiburon, about fashion and our closeted pajama wearing. As a fellow work-from-home woman, she understands my need to be comfortable. This is different from being comfortable while I am out of the house. It's some mental thing for me. I get cleaned up when I am getting ready to head out to meet a client, run errands, etc. I seem to have a hard time focusing on my admin duties (see "small business ownership") here at home when I am dressed to leave the house. So somehow my brain has connected pajamas to working at home. So why fight it?
Now don't get me wrong, it's not like I am walking around the house in hole-filled tees and sweatpants (implying I would sleep in that sort of thing). I collect vintage kimonos because they make me feel beautiful, even when just lounging around the house. I love this vintage beauty from Shrimpton Couture.
Maybe you're not a kimono kind of person, but you still need to ditch your track suits and holy duds for something a little nicer. Here are some suggestions:
