For many of us, the prospect of returning to our offices is but a distant point on the horizon. Personally, I’m not mad about it. I’m saving money and stress on my commute, and I don’t have to put on pants. It’s a win-win. The only downside is that back in March when we all started working from home, I, like many people, thought this would be a fun little three-week respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, so I did not invest in anything to make working from home more enjoyable long-term. Cut to, eight months later, and we’re still doing this. With the temperatures dropping and the possibility of even socially distant park hangs receding faster than daylight hours, it’s time to finally treat ourselves to some things we need but don’t actually need, now that we’ll be working from home for the foreseeable future. If you’re thinking, “maybe I shouldn’t drop $100 on tie-dye sweatpants that might not be in style next year,” fear not, because you can get that trendy piece without the side of guilt by using PayPal’s Pay in 4* solution. Pay in 4 lets you buy now and pay later when you pay with PayPal. You can split purchases into four interest-free payments, with the down payment due when you make the purchase, and the rest of the payments every two weeks after. You’ll see it when you check out at millions of retailers where PayPal is offered—just click PayPal as your payment option.
So with that in mind, it’s time for some retail therapy. Here are just some of the many, many things you can buy with PayPal’s Pay in 4 that will make WFH life that much better.
& Other Stories Oversized Wool Knit Hoodie, $129
You had me at “oversized” and “hoodie”. You can tell just by looking at this hoodie that it’s going to be softer than a cloud (I assume, never been on a cloud). With two colors available and matching joggers, this may be your new WFH uniform.
Aldo Reilly Lace-Up Boot, $140
So the reality is that at some point, you are going to have to go outside and face the elements, whether it be to buy groceries, pick up a prescription, take out the trash, etc. And when you do brave the outside world, you’ll want to do it in shoes that are stylish, comfortable, and durable. These combat boots are all those things, plus they’re made with sustainability in mind.
UGG Fluff Yeah Genuine Shearling Slingback Sandal, From $99.95
Is there any single item more suited for WFH life than these slipper-sandals? No. These are so comfortable since they’re made from genuine shearling, and they’re also amazingly fun. Like, being stuck in my apartment is immediately better if I’m trudging around in these platform fuzzy slipper slides.
Lululemon Navigation Stretch Down Vest, $168
Vests are back, baby, and not the weird plaid ones from the early 2000s that would make you cringe now. We’re talking comfort and style. This one will keep you warm and comes in a few neutral colors, so you can throw it over every long-sleeve shirt you own.
La Mer The Treatment Lotion, $115
You didn’t think we’d forget about skin care because we’re in quarantine, did you? On the contrary, that’s the only hobby I have now! So why not invest in this rich moisturizer from La Mer that’s paraben-, sulfate-, and phthalate-free? (No, I don’t know what phthalates are, but I assume they’re bad.) Anyway, this super hydrating cream moisturizes and optimizes your skin, which is going to be v necessary after spending hours curled up next to your heater.
Nike Sportswear Plush Faux Fur Blanket, $175
When all else fails, get yourself a super soft blanket to spend the entire winter wrapped in. This Nike one is made of the same fleece that’s used in their jackets, so you can finally take your jacket off inside the house. Now all you need is a fireplace to curl up in front of, and you’re set for life.

Is there anything to do on a snow day aside from eating carbs and online shopping? The answer is no. Like all responsible adults, we spent our work-from-home snow day productively searching the internet for cheap swimsuits that are super trendy and look super expensive but really aren’t. Like, anyone can spend last week’s salary on the same neon Triangl bikini Instagram models have been wearing since 2014, but we’ve moved onto better things. The swimsuits coming out for this summer season are all about cool prints and cutouts, so we compiled a list of our favs. Here are 10 cheap swimsuits you need to own by the time the snow melts.
1. ASOS Wolf & Whistle Snake Swimsuit
Does anything say luxury better than snake print? The one-piece is classy already, and the little cutout is a cute perk. Plus, it’s only $45. I’m into it.
2. Out From Under Twisted Bikini
Kind of a boho take on a classic bikini. The tie detail *might* give you more of an illusion of cleavage. This suit comes in a few different styles and colors so you can mix and match, and you’ll look good in all of them.
3. Missguided Blue Scallop Lace Up Swimsuit
Pastels are huge right now, and this baby blue one-piece is amazing. Perfect cut for any size and the color will make anyone look tan. Also, since it kind of looks exactly like every bodysuit girls on Instagram are wearing, you can totally throw shorts over this and wear it to the bar and no one will notice.
4. TopShop Ribbed Colourblock Bikini Set
The high-waisted bikini is tricky to pull off, but this one’s a winner. Plus, the color block and ribbed texture make it look super expensive, even though it’s one of the cheaper bathing suits.
5. Target Sugarcoast by Lolli Women’s Ruffle Triangle Bikini
This one’s super pretty and feminine, but it’s also navy, which literally looks good on everyone. That’s just like, the rules of feminism. The ruffle details will also enhance your curves, so really, everybody wins.
6. Forever21 Marble Print Bikini
If you don’t follow at least five Instagram bloggers who either wear or use marble print in every post, are you okay??
7. Victoria’s Secret PINK Strappy Front High Leg One-Piece
Thank god Victoria’s Secret lied to us about stopping their swimwear line, because they make the best cheap bathing suits. This suit comes in every color and I honestly want more than one. And obviously it’s 2018 so we need some sexy lace-up detail on our one-pieces. Whatever, it looks amazing.
8. Revolve x Kendall + Kylie Mesh Mix Bustier Bikini
Another color block suit, and the army green is SO chic. Did I mention top and bottoms are like $30 each? Cheap swimsuits are my reason for living.
9. MODCLOTH Beach The Alternative One-Piece Swimsuit
Florals try to make their comeback every couple years, but they actually work really well with this sick keyhole neckline thing. It will give you depressing tan lines, but it will be well worth it.
10. Zara Gingham Bikini Set
The cut on this one is so different, and honestly I’m pretty sure Rihanna owns this. She probably paid a lot more for it, though.
