    I'm a teacher using zoom now. I tell kids to go brush their hair or make their beds (when I can see them). One kid was sitting by her pool today (I'm in New England, it is not swimming weather yet--snow storm Saturday for most of Maine--my state). I turned on the snark for my comment on that one. Stuffed animals, posters on walls, some parents put their kids in basements, a student earlier this week had his favorite chicken (live) with him. Fun times.

    My daughter wanted a backdrop so nobody could see her room so we made a standing frame to hang a sheet over. No snarky teacher comments about housekeeping tolerated here! Lol

    I wear what I would call my home "old" jeans and top. Nothing special that I would want to be seen in if I was out anywhere, but OK for being at home or working in the garden on a day when I wasn't intending to be seen.

    Edited to say I wish I had been quicker off the mark and said Chanel No. 5.

    Default Re: What do you usualy wear when you work at home?

    When I am attending any of the many, many Zoom meetings (committees, work groups, research management and so on), I always put on a shirt. Mostly this is just courtesy to the other viewers - they don't want to see me in a paint spattered T-shirt, but also, and perhaps just as important, is that wearing 'work clothes' helps me to separate (in a sense) work life from home life. This is critical for me as I have been in near solitary seclusion for the last 8 weeks, and even though our local Alert Level has dropped to Level 2 I am still advised to keep working from home.

    I don't really like the concept of work/life balance, as work is part of life and not separate. Yet creating even the illusion of a silo can lead to better focus, in my opinion. YMMV

    It has been an extraordinarily stressful time, and discipline has been key.

    I agree with the separation via clothes. I can't feel ready for work if I'm wearing PJs. But I may have to try wearing more formal shirts (vs t-shirts) for a week and see what happens.

    Jeans and a golf shirt from home. I occasionally go into the office and sometimes I do the same as above, yesterday was slacks and a dress shirt. Why? Because I hadn't in a while.

    One has to be ex-army to truly appreciate that even if it is somewhat prejudicial.

    At first I was wearing my PJs (for calls it was changed for a shirt and jeans), but later I realized that wearing PJs I didn't feel to work. Now I wear something that I would wear for my normal working days.

    My (I'm really retired) 'work from home' wardrobe is the same as my 'day off' wardrobe; a T shirt, 'joggers', and socks and shoes.

    Flannel trousers, shirt, socks and slippers. Clothes I feel like myself in. Basically I always wear the same type of clothes. I decided some time ago that I wanted a small "timeless" wardrobe which would work in most social settings I might find myself in.

    Chicken?? Are you serious ahah?? I also work as a teacher and so far we also use zoom, but to be honest, I don't care how students dress at home. I try not to pay attention to it. The most important thing is that they do their homework and learn all the new information. The only situation when I was a little awkward and funny when one of the students forgot to turn off the camera and I saw her parents in his and hers robes set. It was very funny and cute. They were so confused when they realized that I and some of the students saw them.

    I'm rather that kind of person wraped in my duvet comforter with sleepers and a hot coffee.
