I get it...when we work at home there is huge temptation (especially in the winter!) to stay in pajamas and a robe all day. However, I have discovered that if I make myself dress for "my office" then I actually accomplish more during the day., and not feel so much like I am going through the motions of life.
Most mornings, I will start in a basic style like pictured here. Today, I began with a ponte knit pencil skirt, tights, and a solid knit blouse. It is comfortable and easy for sitting at my desk most of the day. Then if I need to go out, I just throw on a nice jacket and cute scarf. It is easy to step up the game if someone calls for a lunch appointment or to meet over coffee. I can style several versions of the basic style underneath with pants or skirts and be ready for any moment. Plus it keeps me in a business state-of-mind!
I highly recommend all who are self employed, behind a computer at home, that you ditch the PJ's just as you did when leaving the house to go to work, and mentally prepare for work...you will be amazed at how it affects your productivity, your bottom line, your attitude and your courage to step out and do more. I do not want to merely go through the motions...life is just too short! It really is not complicated to look your best each day.
