Slippers inside, wellies outside - we're v rural. No need for the others.

What are you not using at all?

My handbag.

Meredithgrey1 Mon 13-Apr-20 18:20:53

My hairdryer. Just can't be bothered and so let my hair air dry.

You need a day robe (dressing gown) to wear all the time to complete the transition.

fuckinghellthisshit Mon 13-Apr-20 18:21:48

Oh god I don't know where my handbag is?!

I have a day robe. I get up and put on leggings and a jumper - day pjs. At 7pm I have a bath and put on night Pjs.

I found my handbag in my work bag, in the coat cupboard. Thank fuck.

I had a bit of a panic earlier!
I have 3 favourite everyday bras and I haven't seen or worn them in weeks! I finally found them stuffed under a pile of work clothes (also not worn).

I decided to dress up all fancy like for Easter Sunday - we have a few cocktails, champagne and a big dinner every year and although it was dialled back a bit this year, we went ahead. It was the first time in 5 weeks I've worn makeup. I felt like I had a mask on and apparently I've forgotten how to apply mascara.

My handbag used to be this massive thing with so much crap in it, which - shocker - turns out to be completely unnecessary. Now I take this tiny crossbody one out for my weekly supermarket outings/state sanctioned exercise. All I need to carry is my phone, keys, debit card and hand sanitiser.

Also I haven't dyed my roots for 8 weeks and I've got a lovely silver skunk stripe going on. And I couldn't care less.

In some ways, bizarrely, it's all been rather freeing.

Not worn makeup
Not used my handbag
Not worn clothes other than tracksuit bottoms and a T-shirt
Not styled my hair with the Dyson thingy
Not used my coffee cup for the commute
Not used my bus pass
Not used my credit cards

I'm officially a slob grin

Oh my flask has been fully packed away as have the travel cups and lunch box things. No need for them anymore.

I have been ensuring I get up, shower and brush hair, but have worn nothing but baggy jeans and comfy tops for a month now. Trainers or wellies for the state mandated exercise. I usually work in a corporate environment in suit jackets and heels. I've gone a bit feral and it's lovely. I'm not missing trussing myself into shape wear and putting on a full face of make-up or twisting my hair up into a tidy updo in the slightest. Mornings with no commute are lovely. I'm going to struggle to get back to it afterwards I think.

Haha! I've not straightened my hair or put make up on for 3 weeks, my greys are ridiculous!

But actually it's quite liberating!!

Thighmageddon Mon 13-Apr-20 18:51:17

Oh yes, lunch box has been packed away too.
Not worn perfume for a month now either.

Yippity Mon 13-Apr-20 18:52:29

I haven’t worn a bra.
Haven’t worn make up.
No tights.
Haven’t worn any of my work dresses or the shape wear I wear under them.
Haven’t worn heels.
Only washing my hair once or twice a week, rather than every day, and haven’t used my blow dryer or styling brush once.

My uniform is leggings, hoodie and slippers by day, into PJs after dinner/shower. Hair in a ponytail or bun.

It feels good!

No bra , make up and not straightened my hair - I’m sure I look stunning to my husband 😂😂😂

Barton10 Mon 13-Apr-20 18:57:52

No make up perfume and I haven’t straightened or dyed my hair. No tights or skirts either. My skin is so clear at the moment it has never looked this good.

fuckinghellthisshit Mon 13-Apr-20 18:58:42

Perfume! Wow.
Tights are my nemesis, I will never wear them again.

I have cystic acne and my skin is clear for the first time in 20 years although I am incredibly stressed as I am penniless (self employed and shut). Make up and pollution gone, cysts gone.

No bra, make up, styled or blow-dried hair.
No perfume or jewellery and I've only wore pyjamas or leggings and t shirt.
No coat or shoes and socks/tights either because we are shielding.
It feels bloody good!

Memphisblue Mon 13-Apr-20 19:10:48

@wineandsunshine Me too!

Can we get some pictures please

BobbinThreadbare123 Mon 13-Apr-20 19:16:07

No tights
No proper shoes (trainers for state mandated exercise, sandals or slippers around the house)
Handbag (stashed on a shelf; the dog has had a rifle through it by dragging it down by the strap though)
No jewellery - I normally I wear a lot but I've put it away. Hope I don't need to repierce anything!
No work clothes

A watch. I escaped from Italy as it was locking down on the 10th of March, picked up my watch to time the Easter roast yesterday and saw it was still on "European" time.
I'm back at work for the first time in 6 weeks this week so need to get myself into gear....

WaktiWapnasi Mon 13-Apr-20 19:20:43

Ginormous knockers, so braless not an option but I've been in comfort bras for three weeks.

Elasticated waists all day, every day.

Crocs or trainers.

Tis lush.

Only been off since Saturday. But so far, no bra, hairbrush or shoes. Bliss.
