What do you wear around the house?

Loved this post from Belle about what she wears around the house on the weekends, and how honest she is.

Thought I’d tell you what I wear and it’s pretty much the same every night, every weekend especially since having The Bun:

  • Sweatpants from Skin
  • Large soft old t-shirt
  • Cashmere sweater (oversized & thrifted from the men’s department)

When I go out, I throw on some skinny jeans, flats or boots, and any oversized sweater I have over a t-shirt, tie my hair back in a ponytail and wear some sunglasses (Ray-Bans or Persols).

Or a dress because it’s a one-shot deal.

But if I feel like dressing up, I go all out. It just depends on my mood.


During the summer, it’s a dress because one-shot dressing is as easy as it gets.

No makeup because I cannot be bothered on the weekends and it’s not good for my skin to be covered up in that stuff anyway.

And no.. my skin is not perfect at all. I go out LIKE THAT, bad skin and all.

If I had to go out to meet friends or do something specific however.. I may throw on some concealer and eyeliner.

Or not.

Depends on where we’re going and what we’re doing.

…but Belle’s post made me think about ex-boyfriends or others I might meet and honestly.. I am not sure they’d notice or care.

If they did, then it is I who doesn’t care. I only make an effort for work, and even that has been slipping in the makeup front lately.

Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K.

    I like wearing things like these at home:

  2. Lila

    Leggings/yoga pants/shorts and t-shirts. I don’t wear leggings/yoga pants in public though, too skintight. I don’t wear makeup either just chap-stick or light lip balm. I like to go barefoot but for those times I wear shoes its flip flops, ballet flats, velvet ballet flat slippers (meant for the home).

    I really like the casual but dressy styles of Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz.

  3. Tania

    House (day) – shorts/tank top if I’m going to run errands too or Lululemon running skirt/Y tank if I’m staying home all day (I do a long walk in the evenings on the weekends so if I’m staying home all day I’ll just wear my walking gear all day). House (night) – sweats/leggings/long sleeve T if chilly, jersey maxi dresses/free people intimate slipdresses if warm. I no longer buy just for sleep clothes, I prefer jersey loungewear or free people slipdresses as they can be worn out too.

    1. save. spend. splurge.

      I don’t buy sleepwear either. I just never want to wear it.. I want to be able to wear it out of the house to get the mail, like you 🙂

      I also no longer buy nightgowns, they’re too long and get tangled when I sleep.

  4. Heather

    Unless I have plans, I dress pretty low key when I run errands on the weekend. Jeans, flats, and a casual top. I try to give my skin and hair a break on the weekends. No products, no blow drying…just mascara and chapstick.

    1. save. spend. splurge.

      I don’t even do mascara… HAHA! 🙂 I’m THAT lazy.

  5. Michelle

    I love to wear dresses! As for daily wear check out my post from today LOL! I like skinny jeans, cute boots, and a nice blouse/sweater for around the house. I’m also a fan of wearing a piece of big jewelry too.

    1. save. spend. splurge.

      Statement necklaces make any outfit pop.

  6. Taylor Lee @ Engineer Cents

    Around the house: sweat pants or athletic shorts (depending on the season), a plain T shirt, and pullover sweater as optional add-on during winter
    Out and about, minimal effort: jeans, nice long-sleeve or blouse or undershirt+sweater, infinity scarf, sneakers or boots
    Out and about, fancy: embroidered dress, leather sandals
