12 Cozy Pieces of Loungewear Perfect for Working From Home


美女视频黄频大全视频About one week into self-quarantining, I asked myself a disturbing question: How often should I be washing my pajamas? The pajamas that I was, at that point, wearing basically around the clock?

美女视频黄频大全视频You can imagine how horrified I was to discover that some experts recommend washing your pajamas every three to four . And that’s just when you’re wearing them to bed, not when they’re your new work uniform.

I placed a panic order for additional pajamas, and also started looking around for new loungewear that would allow me to work comfortably from my couch without looking like a total slob in Zoom meetings. Here are a few suggestions in case you, too, have found yourself in this situation recently.

1. Amazon Essentials Lounge Pants; $9–$25

Men's sweatpants from Amazon.

美女视频黄频大全视频These cozy joggers are super soft—the women’s are made of terry, and the men’s of fleece—come in a number of colors, and, even better, they’re affordable, so you can buy a few pairs to keep the comfort going all week long.

2. Tracksmith Crew; $82-$88

A shirt from Tracksmith.

These comfy crews do double duty: They’re smart-looking sweatshirts for all your Zoom calls but also serve as a layer for morning runs (if that’s your thing). I can’t get enough of the women’s Union Crew—which is made of a breathable recycled cotton and Tencel blend and has a dropped shoulder and dolman sleeves for a looser fit. The men’s Hare Crew is made of a cotton-polyester blend that doesn’t pill. Tracksmith’s running tights (, ) are also comfortable enough to wear on your couch, and their merino wool Harrier long-sleeve top (, ) has both anti-microbial and odor-resistant features, perfect for those who can’t currently make trips to the laundromat. (Tracksmith reports that sales of that shirt are up 122 percent!)

4. Icebreaker Tabi RealFLEECE Long Cardigan; $150

A robe from Icebreaker.

This sweater—which is 88 percent merino wool—is basically a chic robe that you can also wear as a light jacket out in the real world. One reviewer calls it “supremely cozy, yet structured and elegant,” with “nothing scratchy inside, just a dense, almost terry-like layer of airy warmth.” That’s thanks to RealFLEECE, a fine merino wool reinforced with a nylon core to ensure durability.

Disney Will Kick Off Star Wars Day With This Limited-Edition Collectible Lightsaber Key


With the recent debuts of The Mandalorian, The Rise of Skywalker, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and the highly anticipated last season of The Clone Wars animated series, Star Wars fans have had a lot of content to digest over the past few months. But the real highlight of the yearly Star Wars calendar usually comes on May 4—a.k.a. Star Wars Day.

Star Wars Day is typically reserved for a flood of merchandise sales, countless events around the globe, and special announcements about upcoming projects, and this year should be no different. To kick things off, Disney will be releasing a limited-edition Star Wars key . This is part of the company’s ongoing line of collectible keys based on their biggest properties like Frozen II and Aladdin, along with special promotions like a Tigger key celebrating Leap Year and one that was released for Minnie Mouse’s 90th birthday.

This key is, of course, modeled on a lightsaber and will be available in limited quantities at 10 a.m. EST for $12.99. As with anything that gets released on Star Wars Day, don’t expect these to last long.

The key is far from Disney’s only offering on Star Wars Day—the company will also be celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, which was released on May 21, 1980. Though nothing about that campaign is known yet, Disney will reveal more on May 4, including the announcement of new products to go along with the anniversary.

美女视频黄频大全视频If you’re looking to do a little pre-Star Wars Day shopping, the site also has a pre-order for an 11-inch , a giant , and a , for those looking to bring order and security to their outdoor gatherings.

美女视频黄频大全视频Your commute, your weekend plans, and the weather are all tried-and-true topics for small talk, but that doesn’t mean you can’t meander into uncharted territory and wow your friends, family, and coworkers with some more obscure facts from time to time.

To give you some (more than 300, actually) ideas, Mental Floss has teamed up with Andrews McMeel Publishing on a with one amazing fact for each day of 2021. If you’ve spent time on the Mental Floss website, the phrase amazing fact might sound familiar—the calendar is an offshoot of the popular Amazing Fact Generator, which has been delivering offbeat, zany, thought-provoking trivia to readers for a good part of Mental Floss’s 20-year history.

The facts themselves cover everything from pop culture to history and beyond, giving you the opportunity to discover, for example, that the little plastic "table" on top of the pizza you get for takeout or delivery is called a pizza saver, and it was patented in 1983 by a woman named Carmela Vitale.

Some of the facts relate to their corresponding dates. On Halloween, you can kick off your morning conference call with this endearing entertainment tidbit: Children in 1966 were so distraught that Charlie Brown only got rocks in his trick-or-treat bag during It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown that they mailed heaps of candy to Charles Schulz’s office in California.

By the end of next year, you’ll be the most interesting person in your company and everyone’s first choice for their team. The calendar will be available online starting September 8, 2020, and you can get details on how to pre-order it .
