Loungewear + WIWT Wardrobe Essentials



Morning ladies today I thought it would be useful to look at loungewear a.k.a. trackie bums & sweatshirts.  Cosy clothing that has a hint of style, that's as comfy as wearing PJ's but slightly less embarrassing if the doorbell happens to go!

I don't know about you but generally I'm much happier in more tailored pieces but come the end of a long day or on those blissful days that are declared pyjama days there's nothing better for a day of horizontal surfing that a pair of tracksuit bottoms/leggings teamed with some sort of sweatshirt/long sleeve tee & a big pair of socks.

Not only is loungewear nice & cosy, it's comfortable for snuggling up in, warm & of course generally has an elasticated waist, which with Christmas dinner & all the treats & party food that will be doing the rounds over the coming weeks might prove to be a useful design feature!

Of course the high street is awash with this type of clothing but for anyone on the look out for some new additions I've put together my top picks, including complete loungewear sets to tracksuit bottoms to sweatshirts that not only would be perfect for a day cuddling up on the sofa as much as they would be for rocking with a pair of boyfriend jeans, a biker & trainers......after all the more we can think of ways of making a new purchase multi-purpose the easier it is to justify 'clicking that button', yes?!! ;-)

Talking of comfort & practical clothing for a simple Sunday I'm bringing out all my wardrobe essentials today.  I think it's probably safe to say most (if not all) of us own a stripe top, jeans & some form of leather jacket.

So ladies what are your thoughts on loungewear?  Are you an avid devotee or do you prefer to relegate some old jeans & top for cosy days in?  As always I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Enjoy your Sundays ladies.....a week today we'll all be in the midst of Christmas Day & secretly longing to change into our elasticated waists ;-)  Right I'm off to have a good look at all the sales that are currently doing the rounds (a full list can be found here).  Anyone got any sales confessions yet or are you being good?!

Back as always in the morning & in the meantime the Boden up to 50% sale has just launched here......happy shopping!

  1. I love that jacket. I must confess to living in black leggings (much to the Husband's annoyance) but there's lots I could do to spruce up my daytime wardrobe!

    1. Thanks Linda, it's definitely been a good investment.
      The beauty of black leggings apart from the comfort factor is they go with everything don't they. Just perfect for this time of year & quiet days in & let's not even start on the elsticated waistband ;-) I'm already thinking we're not going to do another food shop for quite a few weeks!
      Have a great week.

  2. I confess to a couple of pairs of harem style lounge pants in a lovely soft viscose and cotton for working at home days paired with a few v neck baggy tops which have never ventured further than my front door. Like you though I enjoy getting an outfit together for the days out visiting clients etc.

    1. There's something quite special about days where you know you don't have to leave the house Susan aren't there - my idea of bliss especially at this time of year.
      Hope you've had a lovely day.
