Perhaps one of the strangest feelings this week was how “normal” the strangeness has started to become. My instincts and thought processes are adapting to shelter-in-place life and the normalcy of it all is somewhat shocking. While styling tips and outfit ideas aren’t the most relevant things at the moment, I do think finding a way to feel pulled together and like a version of your best self while at home 24/7 has it’s mental and emotional upsides. The things I’m valuing right now in my closet are pieces I can put on in the morning and not have to change out of until the end of the day. I want pieces that are relaxed, feminine and easy to play, paint, cook and take a Zoom call in. I want pieces that feel like me, only the new life-at-home-all-the-time version of me. These are the 11 brands I’m loving for homebody life these days:
11 Brands We Love for Life at Home:
We hit 90 degrees last week, so I’ve already dug into my summer dresses. I love a cotton dress right now that feels easy and feminine and most importantly doesn’t have to be dry cleaned. This one is currently in my cart. I also love this nightgown that I would totally wear all day around the house.
If you’re a breastfeeding mama, you’ll love this one even more as each piece is designed with that in mind. Even if you’re not, though, you’ll likely live in this jumpsuit just like I do.
Fred Segal on Melrose is one of the first stores I remember carrying Monrow, but now it’s readily available online through a lot of retailers. Their fabrics are a really great quality and so soft. The fit is relaxed, but not frumpy. These vintage pocket sweats are on my wishlist.
How easy is this t-shirt dress to throw on and still feel pulled together? Plus it’s in my current favorite color that I can’t get enough of. This set looks super relaxing and these wide leg pants are exactly what I was looking to wear all last week.
This cozy fisherman sweater has been on repeat for me since January and these shearling slippers are exactly what I want to slip my feet into these days.
I have a dress by The Great that I wore all through pregnancy and now every summer since. Their pieces are unassumingly simple but fit and make me feel great. I love this column dress which comes in a few different colors, this tee, and these sweatpants.
