"Home Office"



Working from home today. Instead of staying in my pajamas, I forced myself to still get cleaned up before sitting down and getting to work. I thought about setting up in my study or living room, but ended up spending my day at the kitchen table. I loved being able to look out into the yard while working, and to smell the aroma of freshly brewing coffee while working the day away.

I work from home too, and I get dressed every day. Unless I'm sick. My usual uniform is a sleeveless dress and cardigan. I really enjoy your style! Keep it up.

Amber said...

Just out of curiosity, what industry do you work in?

GingerSnap said...

I think its great you can work from home. I would like to more often! You look cute, as always :)

Sher said...

It's the shoes! You take the time to put shoes on. I usually walk around bare feet on my days at home LOL!

Looking good Londyn. Nice to see your job makes you smile! (:

girl you are better than me. I have been working from home all week, and my panties and tank have been work outfit...I just cant do it...I am together when I am there...but I have been shopping online for work so that helps.

Wow, you even wore heels!

I telecommute full time, have been for the past year. I do get up and shower and put on actual clothes every day, but it's usually jeans, t-shirt, sweatshirt, and slippers. I feel like I get dressed up if I put in earrings :)

I'm trying to change that though- I really do miss wearing cute clothes and shoes and the all over 'caring about my appearance'. It's hard though when I know the only soul who will see me before I head off to the gym that day is my dog.

I'm a work-from-home'er too and I love it! My morning coffee at the table is something I always look forward to. Admittedly, I don't always look this cute though!

Londyn said...

Ok, ok - you caught me.... I have to admit that I only put on my heels for the picture (otherwise, I had my slippers on all day!).

Londyn said...

Amber - I work in HR for an international CPG company.

jess said...

Working in slippers is one of the great perks of telecommuting- there's no shame in it!

I do admit, I did wear pearls the other day while working from home. On one hand it seemed a little silly, but I did feel pretty and fashionable, so I guess it improved my mood all day long.

If I work from home, I set up shop on the dining room table, which faces a window and I have a great view of outside!

Jessica said...

You've def got me beat. I would have stayed in my pjs all day.

Love the table? Has it been passed down or did you buy it? I love the color.

I work from home sometimes and I admit I stay in my PJ's, but I change right before my hubby comes home :-)

Sounds like a great day-Happy Friday!

Londyn said...

Thanks! My shoes are Charles David and I got them from DSW :)

Londyn said...

Jessica - Thanks; I love it too :)

I bought the table when I moved into my condo late 2007 -- I actually got it for a fabulous deal at Target! It's actually real wood and is really sturdy.

Sarah R said...

I always make sure I'm dressed when I work from home. I get a lot of packages and can't be scaring the UPS guys! Although I admit, I'm almost always barefoot or wearing slipper. But I wear those cute little ballet slippers for $5 from Target.

Tamstyles said...
