Ok my friends, the time has come, I am officially BANNING sweatpants! I know what your thinking, “they’re so comfortable or it’s so easy to just throw on and go”.
Trust me, I understand, there are days when I am tempted throw on a sweat, but everytime I do, I always run into people I know, it never fails. I would always ask myself, “Is this my best? Does this represent who I am? Could I have put in more effort?”.
I introduce Option #1: The Jogger Pant. These pants are a lifesaver. I have them in 4 different colours and styles for days when I feel like wearing a sweat (look below for different jogger options).
They are JUST as comfortable, but they look super chic. You can dress them up by pairing them with a nude peep toe heel and a gorgeous silk blouse or go for a casual look with a graphic tee and ballet flats. They are sleek, minimal and are made of luxe fabrics. I refer to them as the sophisticated sweatpant.
Option #2: The Comfy Jumpsuit. Casual jumpsuits are just as cozy as a sweat, but look way more put together and current.
Try to find ones with an interesting detail, mine has tribal embroidery, just gives it some added visual interest. This look took me from a lunch date with a friend to playing at the park with the kids:)
As moms, we are quite busy, between pick up, drop off, extra curricular activities, running a home or working, we reach for what is easy and comfortable. We are victims of throwing on our yoga pants and running out the door. But the truth is, when this happens, we just don’t feel our best. Plain and simple. When you are happy with how you present yourself, you feel more confident from within. As a result, this positive energy radiates onto others and the world! Isn’t that a wonderful concept? So please, unless you are headed to the gym, I urge you from the bottom of my heart to step out of your sweats! Really, you can do so much better, I promise! It is possible to have the comfort of a sweat and still look polished. Thank heavens for the sporty chic trend, atheltic/sporty looks with a mix of elegance…what could be better?!
