I've been working out of my home for over 5 years now. I can't even believe it. It makes me incredibly proud that I have been able to do it for so long. The other day I was on the phone doing an interview and one of the questions was "What are your work-at-home essentials?". At first I couldn't quite figure out what exactly what they were, but then it occurred to me I've got my "go-to" outfits, my routines for my day and all my tricks of the 'work at home' trade. I created a guide especially for those of you who are like me and work from home. You can get your free copy here. Now let's get back to my essentials.
Work at home: Look #1
High waisted skinny jeans are a MUST for me + paired with this Marsala (color of the year) knit sweater its a comfortable outfit for a day at work. I've got to be comfortable yet a relaxed stylish. Now this look can work with a classic pump or sneaker wedges which I love because they have a heel, keep you warm in the fall and are SUPER comfortable to run around, pick up samples and haul furniture in. I also am a huge believer in keeping things organized in bags. I keep all my planners, notebooks and project folders in one tote bag that I throw in my car and take everywhere with me. This Celine one is a classic.
Work at home: Look #2
When there are days that I know I may have to run out for a meeting or even just to pick up fabric samples, I want to be comfortable with a hint of dressy so I shoot for a monochromatic look. Totally the Kardashian thing, I know, but it in fashion and I love the way it makes you just pulled together. I love these Topshop skinny jeans in grey. I would pair them with a grey knit sweater and this budget friendly tote would go nicely. Also, If I could wear Uggs everywhere I would, so these grey Uggs with heels are definitely on my list!
In addition to my daily planner, I keep beautiful journals at my desk and it my tote where I jot down every little thing that comes to my head. Should you need glasses, I am obsessed with these Warby Parkers. I also love to burn only the best Diptyque candles, tuberose is my favorite.
