This week see’s the end of my seventh week in isolation, as I chose to stay at home a week or two earlier than lockdown was announced. I work as a full time blogger and content creator along with running an online Etsy store, so it’s fairly easy for me to keep myself indoors.
It’s been hard, and having the freedom to see my family and friends taken away has been a tough one to get used to, but something so essential to follow right now. However, I’d be lying if I was to say the ‘home life’ had been awful. I’ve somewhat enjoyed living in loungewear, not driving around everywhere, and spending more time on cooking and relaxing.
I’ve hardly been active, so I’ll be coming out of lockdown carrying a few extra pounds, but I’m pretty happy with that! I’ve enjoyed trying new wines, new foods, baking, playing more guitar and just generally making the most of being at home.
I thought I’d share some of my favourite loungewear looks on the blog today that I’ve been enjoying wearing at home. I’ve been sharing them lots over on Instagram, but thought I would put a couple of my favourites into this loungewear edit on here, too. All three looks are from Femme Luxe Finery – an online retailer I share a lot of on here and on my @byemmacampbell page.
The first set I’ve been loving wearing in my home office on those busy work days is the cream roll neck top and joggers combination from the loungewear collection. I love a good roll neck jumper, and this set is a little more fitted than the looser fit styles for those who want to give the oversized style a little break!
The second work from home item I’m loving and literally can’t take off right now are these coral joggers, which I find in the joggers section on Femme Luxe Finery.
These come as a slightly oversized style, as I went for the size 8 and they are slouchy and a little big – plenty of room when it comes to lazing and lounging! They also come in an array of different colours, from pale pink and greys, to greens and lemon shades. You can find them here at the Coral Cuffed Joggers – Lizzie listing for just £14.99.
Now I thought I’d save my favourite for last, because this white loungewear set is a little bit different to the usual hoodie and joggers combination I see most people wearing in the house.
I do love a good roomy hoodie and joggers set, but this one below is just that little more stylish for when you want to nip outside, yet still stay in your loungewear!
It currently retails at £21.99 and is the Cream Tulle Mesh Tie Waist Loungewear Set – Harlee. I love how it features sheer mesh material, floaty sleeves and a waist tie to add some shape. The bottoms are fitted but not too clingy. In fact, I’ve decided I’m going to wear this today on this rather sunny Thursday before the bank holiday.
I’m slightly worried that all my wardrobe is merging into a collection of staple loungewear pieces, that when lockdown is lifted, I won’t know what to do with myself! I’ll feel so strange putting a dress on!
That being said, it’s my birthday on the 29th May, so ideally I’m planning on embracing the dress up stance and will be putting on a little sassy dress even if I’m still restricted to staying at home…
