I started off the lockdown in loungewear, lots and lots of loungewear. I developed quite the addition to ordering cute loungewear sets for working from home. But as April turned into May, LA got too hot for my loungwear sets. I tried ordering a few shorts sets but none of them worked for my body type (though I’m still on the hunt for the perfect one!). So these past couple of weeks I’ve been working from home in breezy dresses.
I usually go for midi or maxi dresses when working from home. That way I can still sit cross-legged on the couch (or often floor) without exposing too much leg. I know technically it doesn’t matter if you live alone but it’s nice not to have to worry in case a last minute Zoom meeting or FaceTime comes up.
I’ve mostly been rotating between three lightweight maxi dresses: This leaf print midi dress (now on sale!) is super soft and lightweight. Plus I like that is has an elastic waist in case I eat too many snacks. The tie-dye version is also super cute.
I brought out an old black maxi dress that I used to wear all the time at the beach for my Breakfast at Tiffany’s themed Zoom happy hour. I then put it back on the following day because it’s just so comfortable. It’s sold out but the updated, nearly identical version of the v-neck maxi dress is on sale in black (only$20!), and comes in a bunch of other colors and prints.
Slip dresses have been another favorite recently. I wore my tie-dye slip dress three days last week! It also comes in lavender and black.
Last night I ordered two cotton dresses: this white crinkle cotton dress and yellow v-neck cotton dress. I’ll add them to my “Try On” Highlights on Instagram when they arrive. Fingers crossed I don’t develop the same addiction for breezy dresses like I did with loungwear. Although it looks like I’m already coming close.
I also wanted to share some extra photos of Jack Jack in honor of National Rescue Dog Day. You can read the whole story about how I rescued Jack Jack. I’m even more grateful than ever for my little furball now that he’s kept me smiling at home these past couple of months. Our favorite activity? The 8pm clap for our heroes on the balcony. He gets so excited every night, wagging his tail and dancing around to the applause. The truth about rescue dogs is they’re really the ones that rescue you.
