Finding Your Go-To Comfy & Casual Uniform

~This post contains affiliate links denoted by a * ~ Please see my disclaimer ~

We’ve all been there, stood in front of the wardrobe and thinking ‘what on earth am I going to wear’. At the moment, the focus is on comfort for our working from home days. Lounge wear is GREAT and definitely ‘fashion trend’ at the moment but sometimes getting *properly* dressed can work wonders too. I haven’t gone as far as wearing make-up daily though.

The UK is in the ‘spring to summer’ fashion period. One day it’ll be a scorcher, the next day we’ll be searching for the jumpers. I’ve never found Spring/Summer fashion an easy balance to strike and typically, the one day I decide to wear a cute summer dress, its WAY too windy. But whilst we’re in the home environment, it’s the perfect time to ‘shop your wardrobe’. You might find few items that you forgot about – for me, I finally had the right colour jeans but had never paired it with the green top. Here are my 4 staples for comfy/casual ‘at home’ outfits.

The 5 Things You Should Know About Yoga

It’s been three years since I started going to yoga classes, but I think I can now define myself as an amateur. My yoga journey begun with an incredible instructor at a village class and although I was completely sold on the benefits, my practice has been on and off over the years. But my yoga mojo is back and it’s here to stay this time I’m sure. It’s become my weekly past time for switching off and attempting to master some flexibility.

How to Feel More Body Confident

As I’m writing this, it’s been a very chilled Sunday afternoon of pretty much doing nothing. I’d caught up on all the series I’ve been watching, so picked the first thing Netflix’s ‘Top Picks’ list, ‘I Feel Pretty’ & as it turns out a Netflix rom-com was just what I needed. But, the underlying message of ‘everyone is beautiful’ in this film has got me thinking.

I’m on my own lil journey towards ‘body confidence’ (as I’m sure we all are!), but here’s a few ways that might help along the way…

Wear what you feel comfortable in

An obvious one I know, but it’s true. If you’re not comfortable, then you’re less likely to feel confident. When I’m going somewhere & I’m not sure what to wear, my mind tends to go into overdrive & before you know it, I’m really frustrated with not knowing what to wear. Piece together a few ‘go-to’ outfits that you know you feel comfortable in & avoiding the ‘I don’t know what to wearrrrr’, ‘nothing fits me’ saga, should hopefully improve confidence in the long run as you’ve conquered the battle of what to wear beforehand.

Put the brakes on comparing yourself to others

Easier said than done, I know. I’ve been there, stood in the mirror, not liking what I can see, before then going on Instagram & seeing everything I want to look like.

But here’s your reminder that you are your own individual, no-one else is like you, so can there really be a comparison to make? To be straight & to the point, there’s your answer.

Surround yourself with Positivity

Whether that’s friends who lift you up or focusing on having a positive environment for yourself, it’s likely to give yourself a more positive mindset which will hopefully reflect as confidence.

Love yourself

Learn to love who you are. I’ll be honest, I’m trying to practice what I preach here. I’m not saying it has to be 100% (we all have bad days right?), but work out what you love doing & what makes you happy. Set aside some time to focus on you, whether that’s reading, watching your favourite series, exercise etc.., to lift you out of the bad days.

There you have it. It’s not easy I know, but one small step at a time will hopefully lead to feeling more body confident & comfortable in your own skin.
