I often hear clients tell me that they feel “sloppy” and strive to feel more polished. The truth is, what you wear at home can have a big impact on how you present yourself in public. You see, in order to change something you have to have a goal and consistently work towards it. If that goal is looking and feeling more polished, but you come home every night and throw on your old, paint-stained sweats and worn out tee shirt, the chain of consistency is broken.
I’m a strong believer that one small change can lead to many bigger changes. So, upgrading your loungewear wardrobe and feeling more polished around the house may very well lead you to a more polished life. Here’s how to do it…
You start and end everyday wearing PJs (unless you don’t*), they should set the tone for the day. *Don’t wear PJs? Start with a luxurious robe instead.
Now that you’ve invested in some comfortable, matching PJs, you must take good care of them. Laundry techniques deserves its own post, but here are some easy tips to keep those PJs fresh.
See, only two steps to keeping your PJs fresh and clean! You can totally do it.
Once you have a pair of PJs that make you feel like a chic lounger, you’ll want to wear them every night! When that’s the case, get a few more pairs of PJs and GET RID OF THE OLD ONES! You are a new polished, chic lady now, you DO NOT need your sweats. As Marie Kondo would say, thank them for their service and say goodbye.
Now that you’ve drank the chic Kool Aid, treat yourself to a nice robe and slippers too. It’s nice to have one robe for lounging (may I suggest cashmere) and one for getting out of the shower, getting ready, etc. Extra points for an eye mask.
Now that your sloppy sweats are a thing of the past, organize your loungewear drawer to feel really luxurious and indulgent. These drawer organizers can help. Add a lavender sachet or fabric spritz for an extra taste of luxury.
Most importantly, enjoy!
