Call me crazy, but I get some of my best work done on Saturday mornings. There's something I love about waking up early on a Saturday and getting some -ish done. The world seems so quiet and at peace. You don't get that "rushed hustle" vibe that permeates the atmosphere of LIFE, (even where we live on the suburban fringes), during the Monday-Friday working days of the week.
One thing that really helps me get my mind right and in a working mood is getting myself together and semi-dressed. The work-from-home life has definitely upped the amount of time that I spend in spandex and leggings, and it can kind of mess with my mind at times, forcing me into hours of procrastination and lack of progress towards my task list and goals.
So, how to find an in-between? Grab the leggings and Adidas sports bra, but throw on a cute sweater and some statement earrings and some Manolos (vintage, EBAYed, of course ☺).
Also, by the way...PSA about my most favorite leggings ever from American Apparel. I'm super picky about leggings and will pay for quality, because I really have a preference against seeing other people's undergarments showing through their thin leggings (and consequently, mine). The inside of these leggings are lined (with fleece? with something?) which makes them super thick & warm. I'm going on year three with these spandex friends in my capsule wardrobe closet. Investment? $38.
Because I've owned these leggings for three years, my cost per legging per year is currently at $12.65/year. I add this detail because I'm a huge advocate of paying more upfront to conserve financial energy over the long term. If you think $38 is a big "I can't," then I would highly encourage you consider the opportunity cost and "rearrange and abstain" so you can.
For example...a pair of leggings that initially cost $38, but can last 4-5 years. That's going to put me at roughly $7.60/year for leggings. Contrast that to perhaps buying some leggings that initially cost $14.50, but you have to replace them every year. You are now paying a total of $14.50 x 5 = $72.50 on some lower quality leggings over the course of 5 years as compared to $38 (for better quality leggings) as an upfront "investment." Consider continuing that pattern year-after-year and extend the mentality to shoes, home goods, vacations...and it adds up pretty quick.
