Immediately. I flatly refuse to be the mom who drives her kid to school in pajamas. Even if no one can see it, I just can’t cross that line. I don’t change into a fancy pants outfit, but I have to do something other than sleepwear. I have done so many things I swore I would never do, so I feel like this is my last holdout😆

@KPMG6 you do you. As long as you love it and it makes you happy, enjoy it. Extra credit if Betsy has to wear a suit and you get out of your car in polar bear slippers and hold up that drop off line. One thing I have learned about parenting is whatever my opinion is today, it’s likely to change within a few years so keep an open mind. 🙌🏻

I laughed when I got a Facebook ad for these "Zoom-ready pajamas" but now I legit live in them. Warm enough for my always-cold self, especially with a cardigan. Unstainable, stretchy/comfy and I've work the pieces both to bed, for work and out to clubs. (E&C, call me if you want a brand ambassador...) https://shop.elizabethandclarke.com/collections/bundles

Pandemmy attire for me has evolved into 10 sets of yoga pants and t-shirts. I wake up and take my sleep clothes off and change into yoga pants and tshirts. If I have a call where I need to ‘dress-up’ I throw a cardigan or collared shirt over the tshirt 😬Living the life over here….

Agree-I’ve gotten dressed nearly every single day of the pandemic but it’s from pjs into athleisure. Helps me mentally transition into the work day.

I have yet to reach that time.

I was formerly a brush my teeth in the shower in the mornings, so it’s been a bit rough transition away from that

I typically get ready for the day after the work day is over.

Same! Every once in a while I find a lull late afternoon where I start the process early. But most of the time it’s end of work day

I still have mine on. I put a sweatshirt on to hide the top. If I don't leave my place, I keep it on until I shower 😂

I start every morning with walking the dog, so immediately. I feel like a slob if I stay in pajamas. That being said I typically just change into athleisure and stay comfortable throughout the day

When I wake up, I immediately change into my going out pajamas that I wear to drop the kids off at daycare in the morning. Once I get home, I promptly change into my WFH pajamas. I change out of those around 5pm to my evening pajamas which I will usually then wear when I go to sleep and then start the cycle over again.

funnylike

I mean, I don't sleep in pajamas at all. I wear loungewear all day though unless I leave the house. To me that is getting dressed 👸
