    Being cheap? My mom used to always say cold? Put on a layer. Warm take off a layer or go play in the basement.

    I’m sure post kid it would change. But before the kid it’s mid 60s in winter 78 in summer. We’d blast it a bit before bed to cool the house down. But as my mom always said “ we don’t work for the electric company” haha

Summer meant a 74/68 split. I will say that house had older HVAC, and likely wasn't the most efficient. The new place has boiler heat, so a whole different animal.

      As far as loungewear, in the winter I'm in a pair of slim (non-jogger) sweats, a wool tee, a shawl collar cardigan and UGG slippers. Summer means the same tee, track shorts and pair of Toms reserved for indoor use only.
      Our HVAC is new but our windows are 60yrs old. We are lucky that we have a lot of tree cover so the blazing hot sun doesn't bake our house otherwise we would have invested in newer windows by now but $20K+ expensive is a hard one to bite.

      Moms always have good phrases. I have no idea what temp we keep it in the winter but the summer we like it cooler at night and comfortable during the day so maybe 71 or something like that. I confess that my wife controls the thermostat unless I am warm going to bed....f that.

              Old Navy or American Apparel tank top. Yes, the AA tanks are very old.
              LB Evans slippers. Started wearing slippers around the house because walking barefoot on all my tile and laminate was giving my heels hell.

                Amazon Essentials sweatpants. I believe they are $15, and totally worth the money!

                  My WFH style has been mostly american eagle joggers or Adidas track pants, jeans if it's colder. Usually a t-shirt and flannel shirt, with alternating a cardigan or some form of sweater or sweatshirt. I like the vibe of the joggers with a chunky sweater, I might keep that going.

                    It's been in the 30s for a while here in the Midatlantic region, 20s at night. Champion joggers on the bottom, JCrew flannel shirt on top, or t-shirt and Gap cable knit cardigan if it's colder.

                    Acorn slippers are warm and breathable. Made from cotton terry cloth. Not wool, but not expensive.

                      I'm in the Mid-Atlantic too (DC area) and if I really want to lounge I throw on one of my two pairs of flannel PJs with a pair of LL Bean shearling slippers, and a bathrobe over that if necessary for warmth. Or I have an Everlane cashmere hoodie that's really cozy. I pair that with a pair of flannel sleep pants and the slippers.

                        I had a hard day working/parenting yesterday, and went was laying in bed for a few minutes. I was wearing my typical work from home clothes this winter - comfy corduroys (from Lands End), a Brooks Brothers Red Fleece sports short (button down collar, button-front), with a Uniqlo Airism v-neck t-shirt and cotton boxers. And you know what - I was comfortable in that as in ANYTHING I wear. The shirt is not normal - it is not all cotton and was some stretch built in whereas most of my shirts are all-cotton. But it was really remarkable how comfy it all felt.

                        I have plenty of more loungy stuff, but this was really good.

                          Preach. After the kids go to bed, lounging is more a state of mind
