Jeans, a Basketball Game, and Yoga Pants

"The bad thing about your kid having a Friday Night game is that you have to stay dressed," I said to Lawn Boy recently.

It was... a Friday Night ~ I know you are shocked~ and I was standing there in my jeans, desperately wanting to put on my yoga pants after a long week of work. Once upon a time, I wouldn't have thought twice about throwing on a shirt and heading to the game in my yoga pants, but I've gained some weight recently ~Remember when stress made you lose weight? Yeah, me neither~ and I'm not really comfortable going out like that. Granted, I'm not really comfortable in my jeans right now either! ~ There is something extremely discouraging about being in better physical shape then you've ever been... I mean, I can run five miles without stopping... and weighing more than you ever have unless you were pregnant... and no, it's NOT muscle, trust me!

I caved and put on my yoga pants anyway and then it was time to get ready for the game.

Short of stomping my feet and whining, "I don't wanna get dressed!" I went into the closet and put on  a shirt, scarf, and cardigan, leaving LB exclaiming, "Those look like work pants!"

One kicky pair of flats later, we were out the door, sans jeans!
And now I might just be wearing my yoga pants to work!

How about them apples!?!

I think that outfit looks pretty good; certainly perfect for a casual family outing. You go girl!

I wear my leggings and yoga pants to work all the time just dress them up with a cute top!

I think that was a really cute outfit! Kudos to you for making it casual and comfy :)

That's a cute outfit! I have learned to embrace leggings and tall Uggs. So comfy.

My oldest has basketball practice on Friday nights and I cannot wait for it to be over. On Fridays, all I want to do is be at home, doing as little as possible.

I hear you on the weight- I gained a ridiculous amount this fall due to stress. Weighed more than my pregnancies. I'm working on taking it off, but it's not as fast as I'd like.

Ha! Works for me. I may be heading in that direction! Fred and I tried doing Insanity today because I'm growing out of my pants! Mine is inactivity AND stress. I need to go find a couple of yoga pants!

Uhm, I think that's a really cute outfit! Who says you can't wear yoga pants out?!

So since I work from home, I've sadly gained a bit of weight too and am trying NOT to wear yoga pants around all day because then I feel like I'm not accomplishing much (which is silly, because why do I have to wear clothes to feel accomplished??) Anyway, I'm realizing that jeans are just SO SUPER UNCOMF. Isn't there anything between a yoga pant and dress pants we can invent?? Hmmm…
