Clown clothes


I have no shame anymore. I just throw anything on in the morning.

Pajama top? pajama bottom? I'm not ashamed to wear them out on the street.

So I'll pull on a pair of jeans or sweatpants, but leave the pajama top on under my jacket.

Or sometimes I sleep in a t-shirt, and pull on pajama bottoms in the morning to keep my legs warm while I fix breakfast. I'll wear them out on the street.

But you know what's weird? I draw the line at wearing both outside at the same time. That's just not right.

Crocs - the only place I'll wear them is on my street in the morning.

A colorful scarf around the neck because my chest gets cold. An old cable sweater. Or a zipper sweatshirt jacket I got from my mom.

Capri-length yoga pants. It's cold, I need socks. How about these lime-green soccer socks?

I used to care more about what I wore on the street. Then I met a neighbor, wearing her plaid cotton pajama pants at four in the afternoon.

And then I met another neighbor on a morning dog-walk, wearing pajama pants printed with dog pictures.

OK.

Anything goes. I guess. Even Crocs.

I think COMFORT is the word we are going for here.

I go to the mailbox in my jammies. Usually the tops and bottoms match.

I have sometimes taken a child to school while wearing the jammies, if I was going to stay home sick that day. WHY WHY WHY when I am home sick did I still have to take the child to school?

If we're talking about odd combos, how about sushi socks and leopard sandals??? ...guilty...

Sushi socks? You mean socks made out of raw fish?

I wore my Crocs yesterday and my girls had quite a laugh. I just find them so comfy!

Thanks for stopping by!

I failed to get the garbage and recycling out yesterday because I was wearing a nightshirt and cropped leggings. It wouldn't have been a big deal, but the neighbor man was outside at the time. I draw the line at having to greet anyone else in my pajamas.

However, I will drive a kid to school while wearing warm winter pajamas. And then I will stay in them until the end of the school day.

crocs and bike shorts in the warm weather, clogs with socks and pajama bottoms (when wearing a jacket, sometimes even no bra) in the cold weather, that was my uniform for walking the dogs for a long time. Truth be told, sometimes it still is :-)
