Sometimes boyfriend jeans are the best solution for a day at home, rather than staying in your pyjamas or sweats all day. They're more comfortable than skinny jeans (especially if I'm doing things sitting down), yet I still feel as if I need to dress them up just a little bit. I tend to get one or two callers at home during the day (we live right in the town centre and I get a lot of deliveries), so having something I can throw on in the morning that's also respectable for a knock at the door is important.
All boyfriend jeans need, for example, are a slightly smarter top, a leopard print belt (also helps to keep them up - why do mine always become so big on the waist?!) and some funky sandals. Yes - I pranced about the house in these (on sale) ones from Debenhams all day, simply because I felt like it. And when your hair is unwashed, matted and generally pretty rank, do what I do: tie it into a side ponytail, backcomb the hell out of it, pin it all up into a messy bun and plonk a hat on your head.
Voilà - comfy, front-door presentable, and even worthy of a photo shoot. What's your go-to outfit at home to make sure you're prepared for visitors? And do you toy with boyfriend jeans at any time to make a change from skinnies...?!
