A WEEK IN MY REAL OUTFITS


One of my aims this year is to keep it more real on the blog this year. Besides my blog, I also still go to university and do some freelance work every now and again. It means that I actually spend the majority of my free time at home working on my dissertation, doing work for clients or editing photos for my blog. I didn’t have any time to go and shoot new photos for the blog last week because of dissertation work and the glum weather. That’s why I thought I would be fun to share a week of my ‘real’ outfits on the blog instead because my outfits for when I am working from home are quite different than what I normally would share on the blog, as comfort is always key on these sit-down and work days. This post was inspired by the lovely Pinja, who shared this idea on her blog a couple of weeks ago.



Monday

On Monday I spent most of my day typing last weeks blog posts and editing the photos for those blog posts. This basically meant that I would spend most of my day working behind my laptop. It was quite cold, rainy and glum that day, so I opted for a super comfortable and warm outfit. I wore a warm brown jumper with a basic black tee underneath to keep me warm. I styled it with a pair of my Topshop flared trousers – which are the most comfortable thing in the world to wear, as they are basically leggings. Then to top off this look I of course wore my super cosy slippers to keep my feet warm throughout the day. So glam, I know.

Tuesday

Tuesday was another busy day. I went to the gym at around 10 in the morning with my friend that day. I got back at around 11:30, quickly hopped into the shower and got ready to run some errands in town. I wanted to buy some more photo frames so did for a quick hour before going back home to work on my dissertation. That day I felt like I wanted to put a bit of effort into my outfit, so I wore my mom jeans with a striped tee and my H&M trench coat. Of course I wore my Adidas Yung 96-J trainers with it, as they are super comfortable to walk around town in. I paired it with my Rika bag and was ready to go.

Wednesday

Wednesday was a workday at one of my clients. I felt a bit tired, so I wanted to be super comfortable in the outfit I wore, but still look quite put together. That’s why I decided to wear my H&M pinstripe trousers. These trousers are super comfortable as they have an elasticated waist. It basically makes it feels like you’re wearing leggings, so it was just the kind of comfort I was after during that day. I styled it with a very simple and plain black top, which I tucked into my trousers a bit and my Adidas Yung sneakers.


Thursday

Thursday was another day where I spent most of it inside working on my dissertation, which meant I needed to be as comfortable as possible. These mom jeans are surprisingly comfortable to work in, so I wore them again. I was a bit cold during the day so I also decided to style these jeans with this Primark jumper. The funny thing is that this is actually a pyjama jumper from Primark, but I tend to just go out in it, because no one tends to see a difference. During my lunch I went out for a bit to do some groceries. In the evening I changed into my gym gear again because I was off to the gym.



Friday

On Friday I was super determined to get every item of my to-do list for the week ticked off. So I dressed in yet another striped tee and my black mom jeans. Halfway through the day I had completed most of my tasks so I decided to reward myself by going out into the city center to enjoy the weather for a bit. I put on this Weekday blazer to feel a bit more like ‘stylish Laura’ instead of ‘super comfortable Laura’.

Saturday

On Saturday I wanted to run some errands and do some groceries. I decided to once again go for comfort, which is why I am yet again wearing a pair of my Topshop flared trousers. I am just happy I decided to stock up on these a while ago, so I can wear a clean pair of these flared trousers at least three times a week. I styled these trousers with a pair of Old Skool Vans, a black oversized tee and my oversized denim jacket.


Sunday

On Sundays I always like to chill as much as possible. It was Mother’s Day on Sunday so I just got dressed super quickly after taking a shower to go to the grocery store to buy some ingredients for breakfast for my mum. I wore my gym trousers with an old H&M tee, my leather jacket and my Vans. Later that day I added my glasses and swapped my Vans for my slippers as I wasn’t planning on leaving the house anymore for the rest of the day. We ended up spending all of Sunday in and around the house just chilling and hanging out as a family, which was lovely.

As you might have seen I don’t wear a full face of makeup most of the week as I am working from home and it seems silly to cover my face in makeup. I also like to wear my hair up most of the week so I don't have to wash it and I don't constantly touch it when I am working. 

I also hope that this was somewhat fun to read and gave you a bit of an insight into how I spent my week last week. Now you know that I spend most of my week behind my laptop working in the most comfortable outfits I own instead of a midi skirt or a pair of super smart trousers.
