Who else has trouble relaxing at home in the clothes that they go out in? It can’t only be me. Jeans are too stiff, if I’ve ironed it to go out in then I’m definitely not comfortable flopping on the couch or cooking a meal in it, sometimes the waist is too tight, or the buttons annoy me… What does it boils down to? Unless I’m wearing pyjamas, sweat pants or a t-shirt that definitely belongs in the rag pile, I don’t feel 100% comfortable.
I thought maybe that was an “adult thing”, but eight years into adulting and I’m either still a total rookie, or I need to find a solution.
I have a small section of my wardrobe that fits the bill for both “comfortable for home” and “able to be seen in public”, and so I’ve promised myself that if I am going to get new clothes, I should attempt to make sure they Can be added to this pile.
Cue this little Zulu and Zephyr dress. What a dream. Not only is it the first dress I’ve tried on in years that doesn’t hang an awkward two inches past my knee (short girl problems), but it’s so comfortable that I’ve been pulling it out weekend after weekend since I bought it.

The top is actually like a backwards bib, with the ends then going around your waist so you can pull it as tight as you’d like (or in my case loosen it when you eat too much breakfast).
I paired mine with the ultimate in comfy accessories: sneakers and a backpack. I’ve walked to waterfalls in it, gone out to breakfast in it, watched the sunset on the beach in it and eaten three-people’s worth of hot chips on the grass while watching fire twirling in it. See what I mean? Total keeper.
