Like many people, the Chatelaine team has been working from home for the past five weeks. While there’s something to be said for rolling out of bed five minutes before a 9 a.m. meeting and wearing sweatpants all day, adjusting to an uncertain new reality is not without its challenges. The good news? We now fully appreciate the small things in life, like a warm pair of slippers, a good pair of headphones or a perfectly chewy brownie. Here, we share the work-from-home essentials that are helping us get through this period of self-isolation.
A cozy romper
“The most difficult part of working from home for me is finding the motivation to get dressed in the morning, but this Smash + Tess romper has been a game-changer. It's ridiculously soft, loose and comfortable, but it looks more polished than sweatpants. I usually throw on a sweater or cardigan on top whenever I have video meetings, but I'm looking forward to wearing it out in the real world paired with a leather jacket, cute sneakers and lots of layered jewelry.” —Andréanne Dion, associate lifestyle editor
