At the very beginning of this lockdown, I promised myself I would stay away (far, far away) from online shopping. We’re not going out, meeting people, going to work, parties or anywhere really, so why in the world would I need new clothes? At the very best I would put on a clean t-shirt to go down and get the mail but apart from that, my wardrobe has been on a strict diet of pjs, sweats and loose tank tops.
But now it’s been four months. As a girl who would conjure up an occasion out of thin air simply to wear a new outfit, I’m pretty much on the brink of having a closet meltdown, if that sort of thing exists.
So before I get really loopy and start bringing my high rise flared jeans and off-shoulder tops out to wear to the living room, I’m looking to add a few pieces of clothing I can actually wear at home, be comfortable in and feel good in (coz that’s most important) at the same time.
Here’s what I’ve seen so far and the best part is, all these can also be worn outside when we’re FINALLY rid of this pandemic – functionality is always key!
