It’s a new week, and many of us have now made the switch from working in an office to working from our homes.
And look – it’s ok to admit if you’re finding it a bit of a struggle. Struggling to concentrate, struggling to ignore your partner’s phone conference going on in the other room, struggling to turn your living area into a functional workspace…
So while we all try to adapt as best we can, who better to look to for some inspiration than the original WFH muse, Carrie Bradshaw?
Mamamia reviews: Non-family-friendly fashion. Post continues below.
Carrie famously worked as a freelance dating columnist for the fictional New York Star – a gig she managed from the comfort of her bougie Upper East Side apartment, and one that seems to have single-handedly funded her designer wardrobe, shoe addiction, cigarette habit and busy social life.
And while much has been written about the financial impossibility of her situation, we couldn’t help but wonder… are there any actual lessons to be learnt from her laid-back approach to working from home?
We took it upon ourselves to revisit the Sex and the City box set to find out.
Lesson 1: Wear your most fabulous outfit for absolutely no reason.
If Carrie were in self-isolation right now, you just know she’d be sitting in front of her MacBook in an elaborate feathered jacket, sweatpants and heels.
There may be some merit to this. If you’re on a Zoom call, your colleagues don’t need to know about the sweatpants. Unless you want them to. Which Carrie definitely would, because fashion.
