Loungewear on a Budget | The H&M Pieces you Need

Now I don’t know about all of you, but when I get in from work everyday, the first thing I will do is have a shower, and get straight in to my jammys. Home = slob time for me.

But what do we do now that we are working from home!? Is it acceptable to be in pyjamas 24/7? YES…probably not?
If you’re like me and just can’t work from home in anything that doesn’t have elasticated waist bands, and loose fitting tops – then H&M have answered our prayers!

H&M has always been a firm favourite for me, especially when I need to tighten the purse strings a bit. I am a huge fan of the quality you get for the price, and I wanted to share some of my favourite things from my recent purchase.

(In order)
I was in need of some new, comfy tops that are wearable with every outfit and I have to say, this cute Love Jersey T-Shirt and comfy Dark Mole T-Shirt were perfect! I personally am always more drawn to a loud, patterned skirt/bottoms – so with tops, I usually like to keep it plain and simple.

Speaking of loud bottoms, my favourite of my purchases have been these patterned joggers, or as I like to call them, my “gap year” pants. They’re high waisted, stretchy, loose fitting and have pockets – the necessity to your loungewear wardrobe.
The weather has been absolutely glorious, making our daily walk so enjoyable, but it can still be a bit deceivingly chilly. So I had to pick up these grey cotton-blend joggers which are a bit warmer to wear on any windy walks.

This striped jumper is going to be a transitional staple wear for me. I love wearing jumpers and hate leaving behind all my thick wooly knitwear now that we’re entering that awkward Spring jumper/no jumper weather. This is warm enough and thin enough for that, and I love that it’s so bright – the red stripes against the white really stands out well!

So you’ve got a Zoom meeting with your boss today. Does anyone else dress up on the top, and slob it out on the bottom? This ribbed fitted top has become part of my “smart casual” work from home meeting outfit. Although it’s fitted, it’s so surprisingly comfortable, while remaining a very flattering fit.

Where is your favourite place to shop on a budget?

There’ll be more from me soon…
