LOUNGEWEAR is one of the areas my wardrobe is most lacking in, right now. Every single month, I tell myself that as soon as I get paid, I’m going to stock up some lovely pieces to wear around the house… and then every month, I end up spending my money on what I think of as “real clothes” instead, while the loungewear drawer remains sadly neglected.
It’s silly, really: loungewear, after all, IS “real clothing”, and, in my case, the fact that I work from home, means I tend to wear it more often than I wear the rest of the items in my closet. Well, some days, at least. I’m always telling other people that the clothes you wear most often are the ones you should pay most attention to, and I also firmly believe that if you want to feel good about yourself, you should try to make sure that ALL of your clothes make you feel that way – lingerie and loungewear included. I should probably start taking my own advice on that, huh?
Well, I can’t promise to change my ways overnight, but I do have the very best of intentions, and today I’m making a start on them with this collection of loungewear pieces I’d love to own. These are the kind of things that would be perfect for lazy Sunday mornings, or nights curled up on the sofa: and all of them are a whole lot better than the washed-out workout clothes that normally pass for “loungwear” in my house!
