There are few things I love more than comfy clothes. I own approximately 30 pairs of basketball shorts and sweatpants, and could make probably sew 5 quilts out of all my t-shirts (if I knew how to sew, that is).
I love comfy clothes so much, in fact, that I wore sweatpants (“nice” ones—aka, my favorite 5 pairs of black ones) out for the entire winter of my Senior year of high school. I still showered, straightened my hair and put on makeup, but was too lazy for any pants that included a button and zipper. Why shouldn’t I wear out the same pants that I wore lounging in my La-Z Boy?
Luckily, I now understand that sweats are for school and sleep, not for dinner and drinks. Yet there is still one thing that stumps me every time I see it: People who dress up in their houses. Reality show stars like the Kardashians wear stilletos and stage makeup relaxing in their mashion. American Idol contestants wear dresses while channel surfing. Even the matronly moms from Wife Swap wear jeans and button-ups while preparing a pot pie.
I feel like I’m one of the few people that has received a comment “Wow, you’re dressed up!” when I wear jeans to class (yes, this has actually happened).
Am I the only one that is still stuck on sweats? Will growing up make me graduate to jeans?
