Baby, It's Cold Outside
First off, just because we’re trapped in the house does not mean that we don’t need to bathe/shower/wash our hair. Really. So do that first. And don’t just wad your hair up into a topknot. Do something with it. If you want to wear it up, by all means, wear it up-but put some thought into that up-do.
The routine is similar to the “Sick with Style” routine. If you’re going to sit around in pajamas, and you aren’t sick, they really need to be cute-you don’t get a pass if you feel lazy. You can upgrade from PJs to nice leggings; something snuggly and sweet, cashmere and floral prints, etc. Vintage thermals are good, if you can find them. I like to pair them with the husband’s old-school Abercrombie Big Shirt and a tank. My feet are always cold, so I choose a pair of footie socks and then a pair of thick boot socks over them; heathered wool or cashmere from Anthropologie. Slipper socks are very Esther Williams in Duchess of Idaho. (Which is great for cold, snowy weather wardrobe inspiration!) I also advocate perfume, whether you’re going anywhere or not.
Whatever you decide, remember that everything is better when you’re fresh and properly attired!
