Now that autumn is near, getting ready for the sweater weather is a must. Fall is the perfect in-between of spring and summer, mixed with winter. It isn`t too cold, but it`s not hot either. It`s somehow a little bit of everything.
Many of us stay home due to the pandemic, and we introverts, ought to savor the moment of always staying indoors. Though I can`t say the same for extroverts, there`s always something positive you can get from staying at home. Since it`s fall, you might be feeling blue and missing the fun. I feel you! So make your fall feel cozy at home, reflect on your dreams and goals, work on getting better, relax and have mental breaks with these fall essentials:
Whether it`s your day off or you want to wear something comfy, a pair of silk pajamas are always a must. Not feeling much of the friction of the fabric is one less irritation.
Besides, silk pajamas are so soft that they become relaxed and perfect for a self-care day. You also won`t have to worry about your clothes absorbing your buttercream or lotion.
A COZY KNIT SWEATER
Feeling cozy is subjective, but we can all agree that wearing a knit sweater can make us feel fuzzy and warm. A stunning knit sweater is essential for autumn, especially when the temperature gets lower.
WORK WITH AN INDOOR-OUTDOOR SHACKET
An indoor-outdoor shacked is a combination of shirt and jacket. It`s not a jacket so that you won`t feel hot immediately, and it`s also not a shirt that can make you shiver during fall.
Shacket is the perfect balance to keep you both warm and cozy. It`s ideal for wearing if you have a Zoom meeting or online class where you have to look at least decent. All you have to do is wear your shacked on top of a plain shirt, and your outfit will look presentable. Afterward, you can remove it and flop down on the sofa for a well-needed break.
HIGH-QUALITY BEDSHEET SET
Bask in the beauty of your home, and watch your favorite Netflix shows or Asian dramas by investing in a high-quality bed sheet set. A good comforter or duvet will keep you feeling like a queen in your home. Wouldn`t it feel nice to lay down, have a sweet rest while sniffing the aromatic scent of your bed?
A PAIR OF FUZZY SLIPPERS
Keep your feet warm with a pair of fuzzy slippers. There are many cute designs or minimalist ones that you can find online. Walking around the house barefoot seems nice, but you don`t want your feet accumulating all the dirt when the vacuum should be doing that. So keep your feet clean, especially when you climb up your bed.
LOOK STUNNING WITH A SHIRT DRESS
A shirt dress is an easy way to dress up at home. Whether you`re working or studying from home, a shirt dress looks basic yet decent enough for you to turn the cam on.
Even if you have nothing much to do that day, a shirt dress is a relaxed way to dress up.
TURN ON YOUR HUMIDIFIER WITH A FRESH BAMBOO SCENT
Another perfect thing you can do is turn on the humidifier and put on a fresh bamboo scent. It`ll make your house feel so good, inviting, and inspiring. Transitioning to fall isn`t so bad when you`re at home, drinking your favorite cup of chocolate, reading a book, blogging, or watching your dogs run around.
CHANGE YOUR CURTAINS
Start the season right by changing your curtains to a blackout one. Blackout curtains are thicker and will mute the sounds outside. Less noise means less distraction, and you can also relax better.
A HOT CUP OF TEA OR COFFEE
Don`t forget to get a cute mug for your hot tea or coffee! Study for a test, work from home or watch your favorite movies while sipping your favorite drink. It`ll be a lovely time for you to work on your goals or relax while rehydrating your body.
While you`re working or relaxing, you can go on Youtube and type “Café soundtrack” to get that coffee shop vibes. Most café soundtracks are calming and can help you to focus and think better.
These fall essentials are all perfect with the current work-from-home setup. You don`t even have to spend a lot of money to have the best home you can feel the most comfortable in.
