The One Where I Address Sweatpants.

One question that is frequently asked from me is if I always "dress up", even when I'm at home.  The short answer is "No".  The spunky answer is "hell to the no!".  But the real let-me-shatter-the-glass-for-you answer is that I change into comfortable clothes the minute that I come home and stay that way until the minute that I have to put "real clothes" on and greet the world.  
I don't think there's anything wrong with sweatpants or pajamas.  In fact, I prefer to live my at-home life in them rather than to wear out my "nice" clothes when I'm not doing anything special.  
I even have matching sweatsuits.  I'm really not kidding.  My husband likes to joke around that I look a mob-wife when we're at home.  Three things to address that statement: 1. It's probably true (sans the make-up and nails). 2. I don't wear velour ones, okay?! I stick to the regular mono-color athletic sweatsuits. 3. He loves it!

Now that you know way too much about what I look like at home, here's what I've been wearing at work. ;)

  1. Love your style! And I want to see pics of those fancy sweatsuits! My husband hates sweatpants but loves leggings, so that's what I wear at home - it's an easy compromise and they're just as comfy. www.texaslovely.com

  2. You always have the cutest outfits! If only I could dress like that. I need to basically study your look. Where do you work that you need to dress up so nicely everyday?

  7. I know Spring is here, but it's still so cold in Chgo., which is why I still wear blk tights. The ones I have cut-off blood flow around my thighs - ouch! Could you tell me what brand of blk tights you wear? Are they comfortable?
