While there are definitely lots of meetings and events for which I need to look presentable (or fashion-industry presentable, which is different and harder), the SheFinds offices are casual, and my home-office is even more casual.
My litmus test for attire on the days I work from home is: If I go grab coffee, could I bump into an acquaintance in this outfit and not be mortified? Because anything less put-together than that doesn’t feel like work. That said, what’s the fun of working from home if you can’t dress waay down?
These conflicting notions usually lead me to a comfortable (which is practically synonymous with empire waist) dress like this ridiculously cheap number from Forever 21 ($11.50), paired with a relaxed cardigan ($62) and Havaianas ($15), still the cushiest flip-flops I’ve ever owned. Sometimes I even put on a necklace because, you know, that obviously means I’m actually at work.
