The 7 Items I Wear on Repeat When Working From Home

It's been just over four months since I started working from home. That's roughly 126 days of setting up shop at my little desk with my laptop, which is stacked on top of two board game boxes (Alhambra and Ticket to Ride, if you're wondering), making dubious lunches with whatever I can find in the fridge, and attempting to join in with IGTV workout sessions without getting distracted by Percy Pigs (the fizzy ones are my kryptonite). It's been a big adjustment, to say the least.

It's also been 18 weeks of discovering a more laid-back side to my wardrobe, which is a big adjustment when you're used to dressing up for work. It took me a few weeks to work out my personal dos and don'ts. For example, don't wear anything restrictive or any items that wrinkle when you sit down for long periods of time, but do have plenty of layers at hand and make the effort to change out of your pyjamas

It might have taken the entirety of spring and half of summer, but I think I've finally worked out my working-from-home winners. Most of my items have one thing in common: They are comfy and versatile yet still possess style. Of course, for some people, fashion kudos is very much at the bottom of their list, but as someone who gets joy from playing with clothes, I wanted to make sure I held on to some of that fashion flair. So without further ado, I present to you my working-from-home champions. From jumpsuits and throw-on dresses to pretty tops and chunky sandals, scroll down to see what I chose.
