Work from Home Waist Up Style

This week on #CommunityClosetChallenge I chatted with Farnoosh Torabi, a working mom and host of the “So Money” podcast. Farnoosh asked me about finding the best shopping deals and how to look chic from the waist up while working via video chat. Does it take half the time to get ready if you’re only focusing on half your body? Hell yes. Who said working from home wasn’t kind of awesome?

 

WHAT’S THE BEST WAIST-UP WORK STYLE FOR VIDEO CHAT?

Chic and simple is the name of the game. Remember ladies, we are ALL working from home so getting too done up will just flat out look ridiculous. Plus, who wants put in all that effort? Take a cue from your audience. How does your boss look? What about your fellow co-workers? Don’t have the answers, don’t worry. I will have you ready in 10 minutes, just scroll down to my top 5 tips below to get waist up work fabulous in a jiffy.

 

IS IT THE RIGHT TIME FOR SALE SHOPPING?

I know this is not our biggest concern right now, but it is DEFINITELY worth chatting about. There are crazy sales happening, it helps you, the economy and your fellow human to swoop up these deals. Think long term. In these uncertain times we don’t know what we will be doing tomorrow. Go for foundation items, things you KNOW you will need no matter what. Choose big ticket items that on are super sale. Get it girl.

WHAT SHOULD I BUY NOW?

Simple answer, things you absolutely love. Your closet should bring you joy and thrill you every time you open the door. This should be how you operate ALL the time, but now is a good time to start practicing this habit. Most people have too much stuff. Right now we are being forced to analyze all of that “stuff”. Great! Start building a wardrobe that sings to you, that makes you feel alive when you wear it. It is always the right time to start a new habit. Especially one that saves you time, money and wardrobe heart ache!
