One of the best parts about blogging and social media work is making new friendships. I have met three of the nicest ladies through Instagram, and I am honored to join them for a post about work-from-home style. We all are in different stages of school, but we all have one thing in common: We love classic style that is appropriate for any situation.
I have shared my story before, but I am spending this semester (and possibly 2021) at home as a remote student or e-learner. I spend several hours a day in front of my computer and often in live conferences. It is very easy to rely on comfy-cozy lounge wear, but I try to dress as if I were attending classes in-person.
With that said, I live in sweaters and jeans, but there are times when I need to dress up a bit more, such as for interviews with college admissions teams or scholarship committee members. I’ve also had to pull it together for speeches and videos used in campaigns. This is when I grab a jacket, such as a houndstooth blazer from H&M. This jacket is actually part of a complete pantsuit from H&M. I felt the pattern might be too busy to be worn together, so I broke the jacket and pants into separates to give myself more outfit options. I highly recommend buying a blazer if you work or study from home. It’s instant (and easy) professionalism!
Next, I love dressing in layers. My house can feel chilly in the mornings, so I reach for a popover, such as a sweatshirt-type from J. Crew with a shoulder button detail that’s popular right now. By the end of the day, I’m ready for something cooler, and that’s when a cotton button-down is just right. I’ve paired this harvest-yellow popover with a matching plaid shirt, also from J. Crew. It’s a great look worn together or apart.
I would like to thank Maddie from Leopard and Lilly Blog for inviting me to be a part of this team post. It has been so much fun working with these ladies. If you’re not following their blog sites or their Instagram pages, you’re missing great content! Their bios are linked below!
