Fourth week on lockdown here in Hawaii and the mayor of Oahu just extended it to another month. Those who own small businesses or who work for one are definitely struggling financially. The medspa where I work as site director and nurse injector closed temporarily as a result of this stay-home mandate. We are still seeing patients in our family practice clinic but mostly utilizing telehealth. We also hold daily staff meetings albeit virtually. So yes, I have been working from home 99% of the time. But not in my jammies. I still get up the same time and get ready as if I am going somewhere. I don’t know about you but dressing decent and comfortably conditions my mind to stay productive and motivated. It allows me to think outside the box and find creative solutions to address setbacks, business-wise (read: how to veganize your wardrobe)
Funny thing is, I have been wearing makeup the past days more than I normally would when I am in the office. I am also wearing all the gemstone jewelries I made so far to keep me entertained all this time. My husband and mom suggested that I resurrect selling my creations online. That needs to be seen but for now, I would like to share with you some fabulous work from home outfit ideas.
Pants that can take you from virtual meeting to home exercise. I prefer leggings or jeggings that are neutral because you can easily dress it up if need be. Throw in a nice blouse, boyfriend top, tunic, cardigan, you’re in for the win.
These leggings from Alo are definitely one of my favorites. The tummy support is just right. I own several pairs, washed them many times and they are still in great shape
Paired with some nice top, from Zoom to Zumba you mean? Don’t forget this time to flex and tone your body.
Accessorize. Okay I get it, sweatpants or jammies are comfortable but you can up the ante by wearing jewelries or in my case, headband. You will look polished and ready to tackle the day.
I own tons of headbands, padded, skinny, you name it I have it. This headband with faux pearls is one of my most worn.
Wear prints but nothing too trendy . Fashion is a personal statement and you can wear what you want but if you like to set the mood of a business setting, choose prints that are on the professional side.
Animal print never goes out of style. It comes and goes but you always see it resurface season per season.
I hope you find these tips helpful. Heads up! I just opened my shop selling pre-loved items, mostly vegan luxury bags that were featured here on the blog or on my Youtube channel. I am constantly updating the shop so check back often. Mahalo!
