New pyjamas at Christmas is pretty much the best Christmas Eve tradition. I ordered my new PJs ages ago but when they arrived they were way too short so now I’m on a last minute mission to find the perfect pyjamas for this Christmas Eve.

I’m lucky in that my current job doesn’t have a dress code. When it comes to workwear, most of the time if I’m working from home I’m wearing pyjama pants or leggings because if I’m not comfortable I find it hard to concentrate on writing. If I’m heading out to meet with someone or to an event I’ll dress up, it’s always fun picking an outfit now that I don’t have to wear a uniform or comply with an office dress code. Continue reading
