Because on a comment thread under a post about getting dressed for an event that is so highly unlikely to occur in the history of your life or mine, one of you asked a slightly more reasonable question. A question whose answer could garner results that might actually render beneficial. What do I wear while working from home? Ten more of you echoed the question under that same thread so here you have it: I wear jeans and a sweater (or sometimes a denim shirt) and sneakers and often have to try really, really hard to motivate myself not to remain in my pajamas until 7PM when I’m essentially liable to put them on again.
I have found that remaining in sleepwear is depressing and tends to strip your soul of the creative power it needs to shuffle through the day. I am not, however, against working/writing/dancing topless. That is an entirely different ballgame and if you’re lucky enough to employ yourself or work on a freelance schedule that permits you “you time” that is work time too, give this a try.
The other thing about working from home and more specifically working alone from home is that sometimes you’ll get up around 2PM and realize you haven’t opened your mouth or spoken at all yet that day. When that happens you might stutter or say something really incoherent but you should remember it will pass.
Now, I know what you’re thinking–it’s May, assbrain. No sweaters here, pal. As temperatures get warmer, I will likely only suggest that you amend the sweater rule and opt for the aforementioned denim shirt in rotation or a linen, jersey slub tank top and swap out the jeans for a mini skirt (or, you know, cut-offs) that is not silk so to spare it a life of perpetual wrinkle-dom.
