I’m pleased to be back in jeans, which I missed during the summer. You’d think I’d be glad to wear something else for a change, but I missed my denim!
The last few months have been all about keeping as cool as possible at the keyboard and strategically opening and closing windows and curtains as the sun progressed throughout the day.
Between seasons layers
Now it’s time to start adding some layers as sitting at the desk soon gets a bit chilly. I find jeans with a linen tunic or dress is a good combination, topped with a lightweight cardigan if necessary.
A company called Forgotten Tribes popped up on my Instagram feed this week and looks worth investigating. It’s an independent brand with Asian-inspired designs that ‘provide optimal comfort to the body without any restraints, enabling ease of movement in the daily environment.’
They have a large range of soft, lightweight tops and bottoms that look ideal for busy home workers who want to add and remove layers depending on weather, activity, if we’re going out to meet people and so on.
Cold feet between seasons
I’m stumped for footwear at this time of year when it’s too cold for bare feet but too early for my sheepskin boots. I hold off on winter stuff as long as possible because it’s always needed for so much longer than summer gear. Unless climate change proves me wrong!
I know lots of home workers love their slippers, but I don’t, because I feel sloppy in them. Mahabis are marketing themselves as ‘slippers for people who don’t do slippers’, but I’m not convinced, especially at £70 a pair.
Sometimes I wear Moroccan babouche slippers, but I’d prefer something more shoe-like that I can slip easily on and off and keep for inside wear only. Any recommendations?
How do you deal with ‘between seasons’? Do you find it a nuisance compared to winter and summer, or enjoy making up new combinations of items to wear?
