Do you ever wake up in the morning, after hitting the snooze a few too many times, and say to yourself, “it feels like a sweatpants kinda day”? If you are me, then this happens about every other day of the week. Unfortunately, the world does not look kindly upon sweatpants, which is a stigma that I will fight with all of my snoozing-hitting might. Sweats are the best. They are easy, comfortable and hide a bevy of bodily flaws. Sadly, they are also ugly, unflattering and unprofessional. And therein lies the rub. How do I wear the slouchy bottoms my laziness longs for whilst fitting in (or, at least, masquerading) as a contributing member of society? These are the dilemmas that keep a fashion blogger up at night. But, I believe I’ve found the answer. Dress as if you’re not wearing sweatpants! The mistake people tend to make when donning their beloved trousers is that they dress to match the sweats, coordinating a sweatshirt, tennies and unbrushed hair. Might I boldly suggest not coordinating at all? I dolled my sweatpants up with a silk bomber, furry accessories (Pip included), statement jewelry and a blowout to boot. With all that jazz going on, you’d almost never notice that I’m wearing the same pants I’ll later go to bed in. Clever? Or just the most drawn out scheme ever to wear sweats to the office? I’ll let you be the judge. But, as you judge, remember this- I’m the one that got away with wearing sweats on a Tuesday.
