I’ve never really been one for loungewear if I’m being honest. I’m that weird person who can wear jeans inside the house all day 😬 But then lockdown happened and my jeans suddenly became obsolete. I didn’t want to be sitting working all day in jeans and the only thing I had close to comfortable clothes were pyjama bottoms.
For the first couple of weeks, I was wearing “day” pyjama bottoms and a t-shirt and then I’d get changed into my “bedtime” pyjama bottoms later in the evening, but somehow, wearing pyjama bottoms during the day made me feel super unproductive. Plus they’re quite thin so I was getting really cold!
I’d tried ordering some sweatpants online but I was sent the wrong size and the wrong colour so I gave up. Then Femme Luxe came to the rescue!! They very kindly offered to send me over some loungewear and holy crap do I feel comfortable and stylish at the same time!!
One of my favourite colours to wear (apart from black) is light grey! I don’t know why but I find it such a calming colour 🙂 That’s why I knew I had to get this grey jumper and grey Lizzie cuffed joggers!! Both the joggers and the jumper are so soft and comfortable! Although these aren’t technically a set, I think they go pretty well together 🙂
I got the joggers in a size 10 and they’re not too tight which is great!! There is a string tie on the inside if I need to make them a little bit tighter though 🙂 They’re perfect for lazy days when you just want to chill in your bedroom and read a good book!! The Lizzie joggers also have quite deep pockets which is super handy for storing my phone and snacks!!
Femme Luxe have loads of grey loungewear sets if you did want to match!!
Kris is loungewear set that comes with a zip up hoody and matching joggers. Kris comes in khaki, black or wine 🙂 I got mine in black (obviously) and I love the white chevron print detailing up the sides. I got this in a size 8/10 and it fits really well. The zip up hoody is a little over-sized which I really love 🙂 Both the hoody and the joggers have pockets!
The material on this set is a little thinner than the Lizzie joggers, so it’s perfect for wearing outside in the sunshine when there’s a bit of a chill in the air!
If black is your thing, Femme Luxe have a wide range of black loungewear sets 🖤🖤 I’ve got my eye on the Hazel set!!
I’ll have to admit that pink isn’t a colour I’d normally go for, but I figured as they’re just for lounging round the house, I’d try something new!! These are the Lizzie joggers in light pink 🙂
I went for a size 12 as they didn’t have 10 in stock and actually, they’re not too bad!! They are a little baggier than the 10s but it makes it easier to lounge about on the sofa watching TV! I teamed these joggers with one of Femme Luxe’s oversized plain white tees. I think these joggers might be my new favourite thing ever, they’re so pretty and comfy, I just want to wear them forever!!
Femme Luxe have a wide selection of the most gorgeous pink loungewear sets. I had my eye on the Blake set but they’re currently sold out in my size 😢😢
I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Femme Luxe for sending me the comfiest and cutest loungewear ever!! I wonder if I can petition to get loungewear accepted as “suitable work clothing” when lockdown ends and I have to go back to work? 🤣🤣🤣🤣
What are you wearing in lockdown? Have you joined the loungewear party? Let me know in the comments below 🙂 x
*These loungewear sets were kindly sent to me by Femme Luxe but views are my own.
I can never wear jeans in the house all day. I get so hot! I’m with you though on not having lounge wear. I’ve always wanted some nice lounge wear because all I have are jeans, dresses/skirts, and pajamas. I’ve been meaning to order some lounge clothes. I’ll check them out. Fingers crossed they have plus size!
I know that feeling, nothing worse than being inside and feeling hot and sticky!! I think they only go up to a UK size 16 but I’m not entirely sure xx
Hey Holly, loved this post, loungewear has become a saviour recently for everyone and it’s going to be very hard to go back to wearing normal clothes whenever lockdown eases and we have to go back to work!
Thank you 🙂 Ahaha, definitely I don’t know how I’m going to cope wearing smart/casual trousers when I go back 🙂 xx
I wouldn’t normally wear pink but I actually really like those pink joggers! I’ve been living in my black ones throughout lockdown!
Ahaha, I’m exactly the same, I’m not usually a fan at all but I absolutely love them 🙂 I’m glad you have comfy clothes for lockdown 🙂 xx
I aspire to be as chilled as you look in that first image! I really like those pink joggers, I think they’re my fave of everything here BUT I do tend to go for pink quite a lot! I’m a huge lounge person – in fact I’m wearing pj shorts today! Ultimate lounge! xxx
Ahaha, thank you; it was so warm in the garden but there was a lovely cool breeze!! I think the pink ones are my favourite too, which is weird because I don’t own a lot of pink!! Ohh nice, I need to dig out my pj shorts for the hotter weather!! 🙂 xx
Some fab items! I can’t wait to receive my gifted items from Femme Luxe, I’d never heard of them before lockdown. Comfy clothes are the best though, hope you are keeping well Holly.

Ooooh, can’t wait to see what you got!! I’d heard of them but didn’t realise they did loungewear 🙂 xx
I don’t have much in the way of loungewear either so I’ve been living in jeans, or changing into on bottoms when I get home. At work I’m wearing smart casual clothes and wish we could wear something more comfortable! I love grey coloured clothes too.
Ah that’s a shame! Yeah, you’d think at the moment you’d be able to wear more casual clothes at work!! I’m glad I’m not the only one who loves grey 🙂 xx
You’d think so! But nope. I think I’ll need to get some loungewear so at least I’m a little comfier at home. It might even motivate me to start blogging again! 🙈 x
That sounds like a good idea! Wearing clothes that weren’t pyjamas definitely made me more productive so it might work for you!! 🙂 x
