Hi, my name is Julia, and it’s been 286 days since I last wore a pair of jeans.
There were many things I thought 2020 would bring, but my complete departure from denim was sure not one of them. But if I’m being totally honest here, I actually haven’t missed wearing jeans.
When I started working from home full-time in March, I pulled my worn leggings from the depths of my dresser drawers and dug a few tattered sweatshirts out of the back of my closet, and never looked back. But all these months later, my at-home uniform has become even more worn and tattered—so it was time for an upgrade.
When Black Friday sales began a few weeks ago, I decided this was the moment to revamp my loungewear situation. I’ve loved LOFT’s Lou & Grey line for a while now—all of their pieces are incredibly soft and well-made—and with 50% off site-wide, I purchased my first matching sweatshirt and sweatpants set. And, let me tell you, it’s sooo good.
I know this is far from rocket science, but a coordinated loungewear set is equal parts comfortable and elevated—the perfect combo for work-from-home productivity without sacrificing any cozy vibes. (Plus, you can totally run to the grocery store or pick up the kids without feeling like you’re still in your pajamas.) Adding these new “outfits” to my weekly rotation has been a game-changer, and I’m here to spread the good word, friends.
If you’re like me and are ready to up your loungewear with a matching set, we’ve rounded up eight of our favorites from Lou & Grey below—happy shopping!
