I think we all can agree that Zoom University has been pretty interesting so far, don’t you think? It will definitely take some adjusting to get back into my usual school groove now that I’m still at home and classes are virtual. But with that said, I wanted to spend today’s blog post trying to convince you that you should still get dressed for your online classes, or virtual work, or anything else you’re doing while at home, even if you are just staying in your bedroom all day… Now I’m not saying you have to get completely dolled up—even I won’t be wearing blazers anytime soon—but I am asking that you at least swap the pajama pants for a pair of jeans or leggings.

We all have those days where we don’t want to get dressed… Whether you’re feeling sick, it’s your time of the month, or it’s just any old Monday, finding the motivation to get out of bed and put effort into an outfit can be tough work. To use the vernacular of “kids these days,” sometimes you “just can’t.” On this chilly winter Monday, while I’m sitting on the couch wishing I was napping instead, I figured it’s the perfect opportunity to share some of my tips for still looking presentable, even when we least want to get dressed. Who’s with me this Monday? Who wants to be comfy as possible without looking like a slob? Don’t worry, I know you guys are silently nodding yes. Continue reading “What to Wear When You “Just Can’t””
