Baukjen Marte Organic hoodie

Marte Organic Hoodie - get 20% off with code MYMIDLIFE20

Morning ladies with us all having some form of restrictions in our everyday lives, whether that be lockdown or curfews we're all spending more time at home.  So with this in mind I thought we'd concentrate my latest post with Baukjen on home comforts.  Pieces that are perfect for keeping cosy in whilst home but once freedom is allowed can also be dressed up for everyday life too.  Their latest drop, which you can see in full here is perfect for wearing now whilst restricted but equally great wardrobe staples once normal life can continue.

So let's start with the ultimate dress down staple the hoodie.  This wardrobe staple is just perfect for throwing on with jeans or leggings but equally can be dressed up with a maxi skirt or leather leggings.

Another great staple is a timeless longer length white shirt, the uses for which are countless.  Pair with leggings for days at home, wear with denim (jeans, or even shorts come the warmer weather) & when we're allowed to travel it also makes a great stylish beach cover up.

Brandi Pocket Leggings

Talking of leggings, these ones are perfect & even have 2 side pockets!  I just love how they've been styled above & should you perfect your hoodie to be longer in length then Baukjen have you covered with this one.

If however, you're not a fan of leggings then a great alternative is a cargo pant.  These slim fit ones are the perfect to wear at home but equally would make a great weekend alternative to jeans.  Just layerwith a hoodie/crew neck jumper & biker jacket.  Plus they're also available in grey here.

Baukjen irene skirt

Another practical piece that can be worn at home as well as for everyday life, not to mention all year round is a midi skirt.  At home wear pair with an oversized knit or hoodie & then when running errands layer with a biker jacket/blazer & trainers.

Deryyn Ecotec Cardigan

Of course the perfect home comfort has to be an oversized cardigan that can be worn with leggings, jeans, skirts & even dresses.  Plus it has to be the ultimate in terms of a virtual hug.  

Cropped Palazzo Trouser

If slim fitting trousers aren't your thing then another alternative is Baukjen's cropped Palazzo Trouser.  Ideal for days spent at home plus they equally look super stylish worn with a biker jacket, simple tee/white shirt & trainers.

Baukjen emory lyocell jumpsuit

However, if you find dressing separates hard, then what about a jumpsuit.  This has to be the ultimate in stylish homewear, especially if you're like me & find that dressing up makes you generally feel better.  For cooler days layer with a simple tee or polo neck jumper then come warmer times wear on it's own with some great accessories.  For me jumpsuits are like maxi dress & always look so put together, they just need trainers/ballet pumps & a leather jacket to finish the look.

Baukjen hanna top

Hanna Top - get 20% off with code MYMIDLIFE20

Of course all cosy loungewear has to feature a classic long sleeve tee & if you buy timeless styles in neutral colours they also make the perfect top for layering under a blazer or biker jacket.  I don't think you can get anything more classic, not to mention hard working than the above breton or below grey styles which are both real wardrobe staples.

I've been lucky enough to be sent a couple of pieces from Baukjen's newest collection & with today's blog topic in mind I thought I'd share how I'd style their jumpsuit for a cosy day in at home.

As you'll see from the below images I've teamed their Hanna Top with their Emory Lyocell Jumpsuit & then swapped the belt for a leather navy one & finished the look off with some timeless ballet pumps.

In terms of sizing I went with my normal size in the jumpsuit (UK8) & then sized up with the breton to a size UK10 as I plan on also pairing this with skinny jeans & prefer a more oversized look.
