Wasting a Perfectly Good Outfit

Hey! She's wearing heels!

Fabulous quote of the day “I have an irrational fear of wasting a perfectly good outfit on an insignificant day.” The first time I read it I laughed. The second time I thought, “darn that’s me.” I’ve gotten up in the morning, gotten ready and realized that my outfit was way too good to sit around the house typing at my computer. Due to a good outfit I’ve ended up running errands when I really wanted to stay home.

When I have some place to go and have planned the perfect outfit, this is not a problem. I’ve planned my outfit and have a place to show it off, so everything is good. But what about those days when we really should be wearing sweatpants? I’ve thought long and hard about how to wear a pair of sweatpants and not look like I’m ready to work in the yard or paint a bedroom. So far nothing brilliant has been bestowed upon me.

If you search the internet you can actually find video tutorials on how to wear sweatpants. There are tips such as, “don’t wear different pieces.” Apparently it is okay to mix and match but if you wear sweatpants, go for the entire outfit. Also, pajama pants are a no-no. They can call your hygiene habits into questions and no one wants to have questionable hygiene. You are also not allowed to wear Crocs or high heels. Tennis shoes are the perfect shoe and last tip; don’t wear them out to lunch or dinner. So I guess wearing them out for a night on the town is out.

So while these tips are helpful, I still don’t feel comfortable leaving the house in a pair of sweatpants, although they are the epitome of comfort at home. I have worn yoga pants with a sweater and tennis shoes out of the house, but that is just to run a quick errand. Like getting milk from the grocery store or picking up a lotto ticket at 7-11. So maybe sweatpants will never be a go to outfit, but at least I won’t have an irrational fear of wasting a perfectly good outfit on an insignificant day!

Some pretty good tips, plus she tells it like it is!
