Jules in Flats - June Outfits Week 3 (Business Casual Workwear on a Budget)

Hi everyone!  Here's a look at what I wore to work last week.

We are finally back in our apartment after 5 weeks of renos!  I am SO happy to be back home buuuut things are a bit of disaster here as well.  We have no bathroom sink, countertop or mirror so we have to wash our hands and faces and brush our teeth at the kitchen sink.  We haven't finished painting the trim in the bathroom and the bathroom door so the paint stuff is all in the hallway.  A fine layer of drywall dust got on every single surface in the apartment so we have to clean all of that ... it's a lot.  But we are doing what we can and are grateful to be back.

Hi everyone!  Here's a look at what I wore to work last week.

I only worked from home on Monday, I didn't shoot that outfit for the blog since it was raining but you can see it on my Instagram if you are interested!  So all of these outfits I wore to the office but they are definitely suitable to work from home in as well.

Hi everyone!

Here's a look at what I wore to work last week.  I worked from home 2 days and I went into the gallery to work the other 2 days.  It was the first time I have put on real pants (not leggings or sweats) and a real bra (not a bralette) since quarantine started.  For me that has been since about St. Patricks Day ... so around 2 months!

Hi!

Here's a look at what I wore to work from home last week ... really leaning into the sweatshirts and leggings on the cold days and easy dresses on the warmer days.  If you are wondering what the deal is with the change of scenery in the last photo, you must have missed my announcement on Instagram!  Our bathroom reno has started so we've moved into an Airbnb for a month or so.  The new place is much darker inside so it would be more difficult to take indoor pictures.  Plus the yard is beautiful, easy to access and on a quiet street.  Expect more pics from this area next week!

I am starting to go back to work at the gallery a few days a week next week so my outfits will be a little more office-friendly.  Are you guys going back to work soon?  It's so weird with some places still in full quarantine and some places opening back up again.  I hope wherever you are, you are healthy & staying safe!

Thank you so much for visiting!

Hi everyone!

How are you holding up?

Things here are good, same same you know what I mean?  We are renovating our bathroom soon and since we only have one bathroom in our apartment we will need to move out while construction is happening.  We are just waiting on our permits to be approved by the city but think it will be starting around early May!  At the same time, we are going to have some work done on our patio so that when we move back in (hopefully in early June) we can really start enjoying it to its full potential!  Construction-type things we want to do on our patio during May include removing a tree stump and replacing it with a palm tree, and adding decking.  This may not sound like a lot but it actually is!  T also wants to add a wall of bamboo, re-do our garden boxes and paint the stairs.

Inside, we are hoping to re-do the closet in our bedroom, and I think T is planning on painting both bedrooms and our front entrance hallway.  He won't do the hallway until bathroom construction is done, because they could damage/scuff the hallway during construction.  We never decorated or painted the front hallway for exactly this reason.  There are holes all over the wall in the entry (and our bedroom) that the seller didn't fill before we moved in so we've just left them because we always knew that we would be doing a bathroom reno.

I'm actually very excited about re-doing our bedroom closet and think we have a couple of units from Costco picked out.  I'm just waiting to hear back from customer service about the inside drawer dimensions so that I can really plan out how many I will need!  T and I share the one closet in our bedroom right now, plus we have a dresser that is 90% mine (he has one drawer).  I did a closet tour a while back if you're interested in seeing what we're working with!

So anyways that's what we've got going on right now (or soon - hopefully!).

Hope you're all healthy & staying safe.

Hi everyone!

Well, here we are - week 3 in quarantine.  I know some of you have been quarantining for even longer than that and my heart goes out to you.  I am so fortunate that T and I still have jobs and are able to work from home.  I have actually been loving working from home.  I have a lot to do for work which I'm grateful for and have been able to be very productive working remotely.  I miss seeing my colleagues everyday and getting that immediate feedback on questions or projects we are working on together though.  And just catching up on life in general with all of them I miss too.

Because I am still working 8 hours a day, I don't have an abundance of free time to fill.  Our post-work routine is pretty much the same as pre-quarantine, except I don't workout after work anymore.  So really I only have an 'extra' hour between when I'm done work and when I would be home normally.  I'm not sure why I haven't been wanting to workout after work, but I'm trying not to worry about it.  I've been enjoying doing yoga in the morning on weekends, or going for a walk or a run.  It's funny, pre-quarantine I was against working out on the weekends! (For myself, I don't judge or care if anyone else is doing it).  I associated working out with the work week and in my mind lumped them together.  But now that's totally switched!

 I know some of you are essential workers and I am so, so grateful for all of you!!  We have been trying to minimize contact and the burden on delivery services by not shopping online during this time.  It has been hard - there are a lot of things you think 'oh, I could just order that off Amazon and get this project completed tomorrow', or 'oh, that tie-dye sweatsuit is amazing, let me just order one online to wear next week'.  I have thought these things many times and do I want a matching tie-dye set to post on Insta?  YES, very badly.  But do I need to put an extra strain on our postal workers and risk contact with them or a potentially contaminated package so that I can look cute?  NO!  NO NO NO.
It's so hard, retailers are having all these great sales right now to try and stay afloat and we can support them buy buying.  I get it.  But I have been asking myself if I REALLY NEED something, and 99% of the time the answer is no.  I do think we need to support small businesses at this time if you are financially able to.  T and I have been getting takeout or delivery from our favourite local restaurants about once a week which (I hope) helps them out, and also gives us a nice break from cooking.

Anyways, I hope by sharing my work from home outfits you get some inspiration, hope, or feeling of comradery. I hope you all have a great weekend, please stay safe.

Due to COVID-19, I have transitioned to mainly working from home.  The first outfit here was on my last official day going to the gallery to work.  I am not really sure what this is going to mean for the blog (which is the least of my worries, trust me), but I will keep sharing my daily looks on Instagram so please follow me over there if you are interest!

I hope you are all staying healthy and safe,
