House Dresses, Workout Gear, Athleisure and Pajama Favorites

Wearing Stelen Dress from Need Supply

Y’all know I live for a good house dress. It’s a southern woman staple for carefree around the house-ness while still being presentable should a delivery man or gentleman caller pop by (B.C. Before Covid). I get so many questions asking where I buy my house dresses, workout gear, athleisure and pajamas so I thought I’d do a blog post to highlight some of my favorites and my picks for each.


When it comes to house dresses I have 2 types that I love, ribbed form fitting dresses for Fall & Winter and flowing Kaftan style dresses for Spring & Summer. My top places for buying a good house dress include: Naked Wardrobe, H&M, Need Supply and Urban Outfitters. I also love wearing silk and satin slip dresses as house dresses too. I love feeling soft and feminine even if it’s just around the house.


I’ve been working out pretty much every other day thanks to my girl Gloria (who is my Zoom Workout Instructor). She kills me every time but I feel amazing afterwards. She’s hosting $10 classes on Saturdays & Sundays so DM her here and join us this weekend for a workout! When it comes to workout gear I love Asics, Aerie and Target! All 3 places have amazing and affordable workout gear.


I love a great set of pajamas and although I don’t wear them too often it’s nice to have some strictly for those lounge around and watch TV all day days. I also love doing all my beauty treatments while in a nice set of pajamas so I don’t ruin my house dresses. I just got a brand new cozy robe from Target that I can’t wait to receive in the mail. I also got some new fuzzy slippers to wear around the house as well. Being that I have white rugs throughout my space, I’d like to make sure they stay pristine. Plus, there’s just something so instagrammable about a pair of fuzzy slippers. Right now I’m loving my Sleeper Pajamas. They are definitely more pricey when it comes to pajamas but they are so well made that I know I’ll have them forever.

Wearing Skims Briefs


When it comes to being cozy I’m all about athleisure. You can workout in it or you can leisure in it. For me that’s a pair of comfy jersey leggings or a pair of Nike Sweatpants. I also love seamless shirts and bra’s and stock up on them from Urban Outfitters. Anything that’s comfortable yet cute is a go for me including Skims! Yes y’all, I am in love with Skims loungewear and since ordering their briefs (which are the perfect pair of full coverage high waisted cozy cotton panties), I’ve gone on to buy their cotton leisure bras, shorts and leggings. They are so soft and luxurious, I will definitely be ordering more soon.

    Hi Monroe,
    Love this article! My mom’s people are from South Carolina and we believe in wearing a good house dress. Love the lounge wear from H & M in your blog. I could see myself rocking that. Do they make it in plus size?
    Thank you.

    Love your posts on instagram and YouTube. Love all the little details. Also – glad you’re doing what you love. I didn’t like my job and still don’t like my life the way it is. If I had a good idea for something I liked, I’d do it. Go girl!!

    I did a nice H&M haul fueled by the inspirations you provided in your blog! I love that it is so affordable to get some nice pieces that I can wear around the house and feel good! We might as well look good while we are self isolating 🙂
