I work from home, so most days you’ll find me in casual, comfortable, leisure-type wear.
When you work from home, it becomes very tempting to hang out in your PJ’s the whole day (especially on cold, winter days), but I try my best not to do this.
I think it’s important to make an effort with your look, even if you’re just popping out to run some errands, fetching the kids from school, or doing a supermarket shop. I dress for myself because looking polished and pulled together makes me feel good.
I have a clothing formula that works for me when it comes to casual dressing: Hip sneakers combined with a basic T-shirt type top in a neutral colour and slouchy trousers – also in a neutral tone.
Black Raglan Sleeve Slouch Top R580 by Desray (BUY)
I adore everything about this top from its slouchy, comfy fit to the way the fabric feels on the skin. It’s made using a soft and luxurious cotton/spandex blend and has a round neck, long raglan sleeves and a scooped hem (back is longer than the front), which allows for comfortable movement. It’s such a versatile style and really works with anything from simple leggings to jeans and leather trousers. This top is one of my most worn winter 2019 items.
Black Bid Tape Pants R490 by Desray (BUY)
I love the style of these trousers with their universally flattering tapered silhouette and relaxed fit. The super cool contrasting cream, white and black tape running down the outside seam gives them a very hip, athleisure vibe. The elasticated waist band ensures comfort and there are also two functional pockets. These trousers can be dressed up or down. For a night out, I pair them a silk camisole, leather jacket and simple black heels.
Puma Hydrid NX TZ Sneakers R1359 from Superbalist (BUY)
My hubby bought these Puma Hybrid NX Trailblazer sneakers for me recently. Aside from being unbelievably comfortable thanks to the midsole foam technology, I love how futuristic and hip the design is. I work out in them too, because the running technology in the design ensures my feet are properly supported, and never hurt after an intense HIIT session.
Let Us Spray Everyday
Even if I’m wearing no makeup, I make sure I spritz on some scent because I like to smell good.
I’m really enjoying the narcisco rodriquez Pure Musc EDP (R2180 for 100ml & R1565 for a 50ml) and like the way its floral, woody, musky notes seem to work so well on my skin. Musk is the hero of this scent, but it’s refined with a bouquet of heady, white floral notes and woods in the base. This is a clean smelling, super feminine scent that is perfect for both day and evening.
