Probably not, but they sure are comfortable.
Fast forward three weeks and here I am still wearing the sweats. Not every day but in the interests of full disclosure, they have been working pretty hard for me.
My logic is this: There will be days when comfort has to win.
The social distancing and virtual lockdowns we face are tough, emotionally and physically. Life as we knew it has changed and we are all looking into the future with different eyes. Yes, I’m very positive and “enjoying” my quiet time but I admit to waking up with an anxious ball in my stomach some nights. I don’t dwell and I put an audiobook on immediately, work with the calm and the feeling soon passes.
How long will this last? Nobody knows but it may well be just the beginning and if feeling comfortable on some days helps me, then I’m all for it. On other days I will dress up like the Met Gala has not been canceled and celebrate solo with all my heart. Moods will fluctuate and some will handle the estrangement and fear better than others but what does give me comfort, apart from a comfortable hoodie and an easy pair of pants, is knowing we are together in this.
Mixing it up in not only my daily routine but also my fashion choices is how I’m playing this one out. I won’t save the best for last and neither will I deny myself the cosy when my mood strikes. This is not letting go, giving in or settling, this is all part of the nurturing we need right about now.
Maybe tomorrow I will wear a tulle skirt with this sweatshirt and satisfy both inner voices. xv
