This post about loungewear you can wear outside is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Nordstrom. All opinions expressed in this post are mine.

Hi gorgeous friends! You’ll agree with me that this year has made us rethink a lot of the things we do. It’s hard to even think about dressing up when you know that your work station is a few feet from your living room.

Loungewear has redefined the way we look at transitional pieces you can lounge and wear outside the house. But they are sometimes mistaken for sleepwear. This is a closer look at comfy, cozy, and chic loungewear you can wear outside the house.

Shop The Look

This just means that I can give my work pants a break while rocking comfortable loungewear pieces. Couple that with the recent heatwave we just had, and I have 1001 reasons to be happy at home.

But this is not an excuse to be frumpy. You can still remain nicely put together in comfortable pieces that you’ll be happy to wear outside the house.

Today, I’m partnering with Nordstrom to share stylish loungewear you can wear outside the house. It’s easy to want all-the-things from Nordstrom (and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale) makes that temptation greater. Keep reading for my tips on how to find the best Nordstrom loungewear that is cozy, stylish, and won’t break the bank.

Gone are the days when you had to pick between “house clothes” and “going out clothes.” Athleisure clothes serve more than one purpose (workout/street style) and the same thing applies to loungewear.

Just so we are on the same page, loungewear here refers to comfortable clothes that you can wear at home and still casual enough to be worn outside the house. Soft, cozy loungewear that is stylish, can easily be worn working at home and to run errands without looking like you just rolled out of bed.

Nordstrom Made Brands, particularly, Halogen, Leith, Treasure & Bond, Chelsea28, Zella, and BP. are great examples of loungewear brands that make stylish yet comfortable loungewear pieces and loungewear sets.

You can easily mix and match short sets to your needs. This floral joggers and top set I am wearing are comfortable, stylish, and super comfortable. It is lightweight but the fabric is not see-through or flimsy.

If you’re not into the matchy-matchy outfit trend, you could style each loungewear piece with something you have in your wardrobe.

Since it’s been a super warm summer, I opted to pair the sweatpants with this BP. lace trim camisole. The silky soft satin fabric is a nice juxtaposition to the thicker fabric of the joggers. I kept the loungewear to streetstyle look simple with a pair of timeless loafers (these flats are included in this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale).

The cozy loungewear top is the same fabric as the joggers. It runs large so size down for a better fit. For the second lounge to street outfit combination, a pair of leggings was a quick and obvious choice. And for shoes, comfy yet stylish wedge bootie (these sell out every time) added a slight edge to the ensemble.

Now how is this for comfy loungewear you can wear outside the house that is stylish.

Washed out sweatpants and 5-year old tees should be left in the past. And stylish loungewear pieces have become commonplace. There is no better way to inject your personality into your daily life than through the clothes you wear.

Thankfully, affordable luxury brands like Zella, Halogen, Leith, BP, Treasure & Bond, and Chelsea28, all available at Nordstrom, make this easier.


Think of loungewear as transitional pieces, they can be worn at home. And they can easily be worn outside the house as I did in this post. In order words, loungewear pieces are the happy mid-ground between sleepwear and casual wear.

Need a few pointers? I’ve rounded up the best loungewear pieces that are perfect for lounging at home, working from home, and going out during the summer below.


You’ll find organic cotton pieces, sets embracing the athleisure trend, to loungewear options that don’t look like loungewear. You can’t go wrong with these stylish summer finds. As always, thank you so much for reading.

    Since I started working from home full-time – maybe 7 years ago? – I’ve been all about athleisure. Comfy but not frumpy is the way to go. These are great choices!
