Last weekend I went on a surprisingly successful trip to Gap and picked up these leggings...I felt so indulgent spending money on something I probably won't even leave the house in...but it got me thinking about why I don't want to feel 'luxe' inside my house, too? Let's face it, now that winter has set in and I work a lot from home, I spend pretty much 70% of my life inside. I hate sitting around in jeans and 'outside' clothes and get changed as soon as I get in. So I decided to dedicate my spending money a bit more on loungewear.

A few years ago I only asked for nice pyjamas for birthday and christmas, so that when I get changed for bed I feel chic, rather than wearing a sloppy old band t-shirt. Now my nightwear drawer is a joy to open (as Marie Kondo would say). And that is going to be the same for loungewear. But there is no need to be head to toe in Bamford (as much as I love) to feel a bit luxey - M&S machine washable cashmere, and THESE Gap leggings are everything...
Basically, you want to look relaxed but also chic enough to be able to pop to the shops if you need...
I've gone a size up so they're not super tight, they're wool but stretchy and soft and feel more like cashmere. They would equally work well with an oversized knit for a plane journey - and did I mention they have roomy pockets?
