In last week's post, we took a look at creating a loungewear capsule wardrobe. Many of us are sheltering in place at the moment and might be paying more attention to what we are wearing at home, than anywhere else.
That's true for me, too. And I have to confess that this is the part of my wardrobe that I tend to ignore.
I mean, I have loungewear.
But I certainly don't love it. I'd say we tolerate each other.
So I decided to today to take a look at what an ideal loungewear capsule wardrobe would be for me.
Toward a Loungewear Capsule Wardrobe: What I Have Now
Years ago, I bought several things that were meant to make me feel more cozy at home, but I didn't reach high enough. I bought a couple of robes, and a couple of house dresses.
They are very comfortable, but they don't feel like I'm actually dressed, to be honest. They are practical, but not very stylish. And not all that flattering, unfortunately.
This past year, I grabbed an old burnt orange cardigan that is still in fairly decent shape & paired it with a red loungewear dress and red-and-orange fuzzy socks. it has become my absolute favorite thing to wear at home.
Why do I love it?
Well, it's comfy and it feels like me! I like the sort of cheeky color combo, and the way it looks like I am wearing actual clothes at home.
But the next step, obviously, is to wear actual clothes at home. The only problem is that I don't want to wear out the clothes I wear elsewhere. So my goal is to choose clothes I will probably only wear at home.
My Loungewear Wish List
Though I may eventually want ten pieces, as I recommended last week, I am willing to start small.
Here's what I'm thinking for a mostly warm weather loungewear capsule wardrobe...
2 pairs of leggings - brown and heather grey
2 tops - one, a tank top; the other, short-sleeved
3 cardigans - a heather grey one, a burnt orange one & a green one.
The good news: I have all three cardigans already; I just haven't switched them over to use at home, except for the burnt orange one. And I have a pair of brown leggings that after more than a decade, are probably ready to retire, but are very comfy.
So I am almost halfway there. Eventually, I wouldn't mind adding a tank dress and a striped or floral top.
What's on your loungewear wish list?
See you tomorrow!
