Work from home outfits for when you’re stuck in a leggings rut

Hello hello and welcome to no leggings January. My friend Renee and I have challenged ourselves to give our leggings a break and work from home in *gasp* real pants. I’ve been semi-faithfully taking mirror selfies so: here are a bunch of work from home outfits that are comfortable but do not involve leggings!

Winter teaching outfit favorites

As the weather gets colder dressing for teaching is a challenge. Why is it that we put college classes in different buildings than professor offices?! What do you wear when it’s freezing outside but your classroom is heated by an overactive, ancient radiator? I don’t have all the answers, but I do have a few favorite items I reach for over and over as it gets cold. Here is what to wear as a professor or teacher for fall and winter!

I tried copying Dakota Johnson’s outfits for a week

Last week Pinterest showed me an outfit from Dakota Johnson (yes, of 50 Shades of Grey). It was the type of outfit that made me say “hey, I can make that!” so I pinned it. By Friday, the Pinterest algorithm had decided I had an unhealthy obsession, and was ONLY showing me Dakota Johnson street style. But all the outfits were pretty cute and casual (not to mention she has an amazing loafers and sunglasses collection). So here I am, deciding to remake as many Dakota Johnson outfits as possible…

Adding Jewel Tones to My Capsule Wardrobe

When I started a capsule wardrobe 8 years ago I had every color ever in my closet. As I cleaned it out and assessed what I actually liked to wear I discovered the magic of only buying stuff that is versatile and goes together. As a result, I ended up with a closet of highly mixable neutrals. Lately, however, I have really felt the need for a color boost. So here is the one colorful thing I’ve added to my closet lately, a teal silk tank top, and a bunch of ideas for mixing and matching strong colors with a neutral capsule wardrobe.

4 Work from Home Outfits because I am Over It.

Hello I am so bored of work from home outfits, possibly because now it is my favorite season and I have nowhere to go to wear my favorite fall clothes! So this week I decided to dress as extra as I felt like being, regardless of the practical side of me that says we aren’t going anywhere and I should probably just put on some activewear. Here are 4 outfits because I am bored, bored, bored.

Bike shorts outfit ideas: 2 ways to wear them outside the gym

Bike shorts have made a big comeback this year (and last year, I was just very hesitant last year). They make even more sense in the era of Zoom outfits as a comfy, stretchy way to stay cool while working from home. But how to bust them out beyond workout outfits? Here are two ways I’ve used mine and what tops I wore with them in both casual and work from home outfits this summer!

3 ways I’m styling overalls with fall layers

Overalls can be a fun wardrobe edition but once you’ve put a t shirt under them you might be thinking: what else can I do? I’ve been playing around with fall layers, especially cardigans and jackets, with my overalls to extend the seasons I can wear them in as the weather gets chilly. So here are some ways I’ve styled my overalls for fall 2020!

Outfits Lately: Back to School

Greetings from the beginning of the school year. I am not ready to be busy again but it feels amazing to have a place to go and a reason to get dressed! Here’s what I wore for the first week of classes for some good old fashion professor style.

7 easy outfits for extreme summer heat

Just like midwesterners get sick of winter, we in Nevada get very, very tired of summer. Is it over yet?! Nope, not for at least another month. I have created some easy outfits lately for dealing with hot temperatures when you still want to feel put together. It’s hard to pick out summer outfits because the “third piece” rule (add a third item to an outfit to make it cool!) is just out the window. So, here are my recent attempts at layering that makes me feel like it’s early fall, without overheating.

Now & Later: Repurposing Office Clothes for Work From Home

Welcome back to another week of challenging myself to wear my work clothes, even if only to get on Zoom. I asked some friends what clothing items are getting the least love in their closets right now and blazers were at the top of the list (maybe right under my entire shoe collection). So here’s how I’m wearing my blazer now to work from home!

Any old blazer can be fine for working from home but I really love softer sweater-blazers for this. However, the blazer I chose today is just my regular oversized suit blazer. It’s relaxed enough to type in, plus in between meetings I tend to hang it off the back of my chair anyway.

WFH. Bloggers are always wearing their blazers with denim shorts and I have never understood who can get away with that (people who don’t work in offices, that’s who) but now is the perfect time to feel a little more street style in your own home! With flip flops and a tank top, this outfit is perfectly ready to run errands as well. Tank/Shorts/Flip flops (old Old Navy–yes really hahah)

Later. I just got some espadrilles and am excited to wear them in the fall with my favorite shirtdress! Shirtdress (old, similar), espadrilles

What should I style next? What things in your closet need a little more love lately?
