I wore my yoga pants yesterday when I walked 8 miles. While on my walk, I remembered something I needed to pick up at a store for an activity I am participating in soon. As soon as I arrived home from my walk, I grabbed my keys, jumped in my car, and went to the store to get said item. No one batted an eye. In fact, I was not the only one wearing yoga pants in the store. No big deal at all.

How about caring about what you look like and showing some modesty?

I do this, and yes, it is partly because I am too lazy to dress up. Right now I am at home with my kids. And the activewear is not only super comfortable, but it can be washed and washed and washed and still hold up well. It's not worth it to me to wear something that if i wash it too much, it will start to look bad, or even worse, something I'd have to bring to the dry cleaner.

If I'm meeting someone for lunch or I have some kind of event that I'm going to, I wear something nicer. But for typical days, where I'm pretty much staying at home, or going to places like Costco or Target, or the grocery store, I don't see the point in wearing something else. And I don't see spandex pants or yoga pants or fleece sweatshirts as anything offensive or inappropriate.

Frankly, I'm amazed at how many people seem to take offense or get upset at this.

Let's be honest.

Nobody is under any obligation whatsoever to ensure that your vision goes unsullied by clothing you don't personally want to see, or cares if you are compelled to cast your eyes upon physiques you deem unattractive, regardless of how they are clad.

Don't approve of other people's attire? Big deal. Your opinion is yours to hold, but beyond that, it really doesn't matter.

Someone said lazy and that's part of it for me. After all, how many outfits do I want to wash every day? On a day where I have nothing to do I probably will get up and put on some running pants and a t-shirt. The clothes are comfy and a snap to wash and dry. But I never wore clothes like that to work.

I have thin legs so I don't look like a sausage in yoga pants. They are actually quite flattering and I wear them often. Wearing workout clothes might encourage people to work out and move more and that's probably a good thing.

I don't like it. It just reminds me that we have become way too casual in society. There are plenty of casual ocassions and sports gear for that is fine.

But people no longer know how to dress up. They wear workout clothes to the theater, Broadway, dinner at a nice restaurant, church, and so on. Easily 30% of my female coworkers wear workout clothes and trainers to work everyday in the office.

It has gotten so bad now people are walking around with sports bras, hoodies, workout pants and heels. This is a high fashion look. That's an oxymoron.

*you can mix workout clothes into a polished casual look with careful pairings and make it look intentional.

women who wear pajamas to Walmart say the same.

Where I live a lot of women wear yoga pants and workout gear. It does look a lot more comfortable than jeans or other attire. Sometimes it looks less sloppy than what other women wear to be honest.
