WFH Wardrobe Refresh

So I broke my little spending freeze the other day because it was time to update the WFH wardrobe a little bit. At first I was just going to buy some really inexpensive (read: cheap lol) items from someplace like Misguided but then I figured it’s honestly better to invest a little bit more in pieces I know I’ll wear year after year and I don’t really need to keep contributing to fast fashion if I can avoid it. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m not perfect in that department by any means and I have way to much crap/am not the most sustainable person (not winning any awards in that area)! However, it doesn’t mean I can’t make more conscious decisions here and there. And not knocking websites like Misguided, I think it’s great for certain items and in fact I have a few shackets and coats from there that I have been wearing the last 2+ years. But in this case, I didn’t need to just load up on cheap loungewear that I’d likely end up replacing next season.

When it came to where to order – all of the sudden, Everlane popped into my head. I’ve personally never ordered from them before but I know that they have transparent (and fair) pricing, are ethically made and use really high quality fabrics. Now that I type all of that I’m like why have I never ordered from them before?! But one of my good friends shops there and she pretty much only buys super versatile (and comfortable) basics so I think that’s why Everlane popped into my head. I’ve realized that now, I really only “dress up” about 1x a week and that consists of “jeans and a cute top” lol. So basically the other 90% of the time I’m just wearing whatever is most comfortable. Yes, a lot of my time is spend in front of the computer WFH but even when I got out for coffee, run errands, etc. I’m still wearing the same items (ie. leggings or sweats and a sweatshirt lol). That said, I figured I could spruce up the WFH wardrobe a little bit and invest in a few more items beyond my 2 pairs of sweatpants and 2 pairs of leggings I wear each week.

As far as what I ordered – I wanted all the pieces to check 3 boxes. 1. All the pieces I ordered could easily be mixed and matched together 2. All the pieces went with the items already in my closet that I wear the most 3. All of them would be comfortable to wear when WFH. So as you can see, in order to achieve this, I pretty much went for all neutrals and super simple styles when it came to tops and bottoms.

I’ll keep you posted on how I like everything when my order arrives but in meantime, I’ve shared a couple posts on how to find your personal style and how to know what clothes to buy that you’ll actually wear.
