I usually try to avoid the word "chic" because I'm sooooo not. Still, I'm loving this new trend that makes sweatpants acceptable. You are seeing them on runways and fashion blogs everywhere. Yay for comfort! A friend of mine said "Call them joggers. That makes it okay." YEAH, man. Joggers, not sweatpants!
This is one of my staple looks around the house: oversized top, comfy pants, and flats. I’m going to be completely honest here: Bloggers don’t always dress that way they do on their blogs. Seriously, they actually have pajamas, workout gear, and *gasp* lazy days. The reason I blog is for the outfits that I actually DO like. I post about styling that I can’t wait to try out, new items that I am completely in love with, and little accomplishments that I'd love to document. It is creative space, and there is just no realistic way that I could keep up with it 100% of the time. Seriously, I get spit up on at least four times a day.
With a four month old, these "joggers" are a lifesaver. I can run errands, do chores and handle Lou, all while not worrying about an uncomfortable waistband or making sure my skirt doesn't fly up. Plus, sneakers are a total must. I don't look a hot mess either! Well, sometimes (total disclosure, there are quite a few days where I am pretty disheveled).
So yay for lazy chic! Fashion world, the moms of the world thank you tons.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go fix the crooked picture frame behind me.
I draw, make, and occasionally tell a story.
