Are they judging you because you look a little too risque? Are they judging you because you dress like a million dollars? Are they judging you because they they just love your clothes?

I am confused.
Let's just say I get a lot of seemingly disapproving looks from some (not all) of the other moms. I've gotten a few eyerolls and side glances that were definitely NOT looks of "OMG, you look amazing"! Some of it could be due to the fact that I'm a lot more fit than most of them as well. Or it could be because I put on a full face of makeup on to drop off my kids. I wouldn't say that I look risqué at all....in fact my sons teacher often compliments me on my clothes and she is fairly conservative.

It's funny that someone mentioned yoga pants, because I wear those too...a LOT! What's wrong with yoga pants? They are comfy, they look great on a nice butt and they're convenient!

One knows how to spot me day or night, most of the time .
Black levi type pants and black T shirt depending on the weather.
It's like a uniform in a sense because there are several environments I work or rather had worked in that this blends with.
Several professional stores and services use this same method now.
It might seem boring but it stems from old world culture , a class of folk wearing a particular garb.
I don't wear suits or ties or shiny shoes , the only one I need to impress is in the mirror.

I just like to distinguish myself from the status quo. Some people like that and some are not so appreciative of it, I guess.

From your descriptions of what you wear, this look is not all that uncommon, and is often viewed as a combination of low class and a pathetic attempt to cling to youth. It is more likely that this perception, rather than some envy of your fitness, is behind the eye rolls and side glances. As you say, they "were definitely NOT looks of 'OMG, you look amazing'! "

She is obviously a narcissist. They see themselves totally different vs how the rest of the world see's them.

I think people are very judgmental about clothing, as well as other aspects of appearance (hair styles, facial hair, make-up, tattoos, where one is on the scale of neatness and cleanliness, etc.). Even if they aren't aware of it, it's subconsciously effecting their perceptions. Same with homes. How they are decorated and cared for says a lot about a person to observers.

Well, I'm definitely not low class, but if that's what you got from my post then so be it.

My husband is a professional and has always been proud to have me on his arm. His coworkers have complimented him on having an attractive wife and nobody who actually know me shares your opinion.

Some people just seem to have a negative opinion of people who dare go outside of their narrow view of what they deem is appropriate. I accept that.
