It’s safe to say that lockdown is starting to feel like an absolute drag now, not only have we been in quarantine for four months straight but I’ve also just come out of a longterm relationship and everything is so crazy!
So I really needed a shopping spree this week to feel a little more human, focus on things that I love -fashion- and have some cosy casual clothes to lounge around in watching chick flicks and eating ice cream by myself…
Kicking off this weeks fashion haul I thought that I’d start with some appreciation for cropped loungewear sets as the weather has been just as up and down as my emotions! One minute it’s scorching hot and the next it’s freezing cold and raining, so crop tops are the perfect transitional piece.
I love khaki as it’s such an earthy, peaceful colour and always makes me feel calm. Soft, stretchy, comfy, cosy and surprisingly forgiving towards my ice cream binges, this loungewear set is literally everything!
When we think of loungewear we think of casual clothes to wear around the house whilst relaxing, but I love rocking loungewear to the supermarket and daily errands simply because it’s an instant outfit, incredibly wearable and looks effortlessly stylish.
I’m absolutely crushing on this navy tracksuit because it’s so light, cool and flattering on the hips. With full length sleeves it’s perfect for a chilly afternoon walking the dogs or a duvet day on the sofa bingeing Netflix.
Something that is incredibly on trend right now are ribbed loungewear sets and this rust coloured beauty caught my eye instantly because it’s so vibrant and uplifting.
The vertical ribbing helps to elongate the body whilst the high-neck short-sleeve top makes the torso appear much longer because of the continuation of colour.
Finishing up with this weeks haul is my love for khaki ribbed loungewear sets – literally the best of both worlds for on trend ribbed detailing and a classic colour!
I love how the high-waisted bottoms fit like a second skin and the thigh pocket detail kicks off a military vibe. With full-length sleeves the crop top adds a glamourous, flirty touch to this set and makes me feel like a million dollars when I’m doing the dishes.
After a stressful few weeks of going through a breakup it’s nice to get back to a little normality and to go online shopping again. We’ve all made such huge sacrifices because of Covid-19 and times may seem scary and uncertain for so many for a huge variety of reasons.
This week has taught me that self-love is the most important at all, as we can never be sure of what is waiting for us around the corner, no matter how long a relationship has been established for. In which case I think it’s vitally important to take care of yourself, put yourself first and treat yourself to something nice as a reminder that you are loved and deserve to be treated well.
