well, gang, it’s work from home day take three. or is it four? maybe forty-four? i think we’re all starting to lose count. a couple of weeks ago, we ran my top 3 work from home pants, but if you’re like me, you’re starting to look for new WFH outfits. many of you have asked me for new work from home outfits that don’t involve lounge-wear (or an elastic waist). well, you asked and today I’m thrilled to partner with Nordstrom today to share a very casual outfit that’s comfy and cute. it’s a loungeable look that works for home (pun intended) but will transition to the weekend with ease. (hopefully there’s still a distinction in everyone’s mind.)

now that spring has sprung here in the south; there’s been one gorgeous day dished up after another. this is the time of year i grab my laptop and wander outside to sit a spell. what a treat to work from home when the sun is shining and the birds chirping. even though the temperatures have been on the mild side, it’s nice to throw on a lightweight cardigan over a simple cotton tank top to keep the chill at bay. and what about these adorable camo crop utility pants that add pizazz to this OOTD? slip-on sneakers have been my go-to’s of late as they slip on and off in a jiff. this pair of platform sneakers from Calson comes in two colors: nude leather that goes with everything and black leather. it might not be spring where you are, and temperatures may not be as forgiving to pick up and work outside. but it’s important to remember, change up your work environment as much as possible to the extent that you can.
i think many, if not most of us are tired of loungewear as our WFH attire. like, if we never wore them again, we’d all be fine. am i right? i kid. but there’s a deeper point there. part of maintaining our own sanity during these times is finding a middle a ground—somewhere between totally casual and formal. accommodations have to be made given our new lifestyles, but bringing in aspects of the old is important too.
funny how little things like fashion can help bridge that gap. take today’s OOTD: not pajamas by a long shot. totally wearable on a Webex or Zoom conference. the white tank, camo pants, and platform sneakers are from Calson. the long cardigan is from Halogen. both brands are Nordstrom Made designed with you in mind. Calson is made with ease. Halogen is made to mix.
i like to check in with you, my readers, every week or so. i still think it’s important to remind ourselves that we are in fact there for each other. so do me a favor today. leave a comment below letting me know how you’re holding up. from all of us here at style at a certain age—kelly, junior style, oscar, ollie, pax, and myself—we’re committed to continue to bring you your daily fashion distraction.
a big thank you to Nordstrom for this sponsored post. and thank you lovely readers for supporting the brands that allow me to bring you fresh ideas.
