Yes, I quoted Saturday Night Live's classic moment with Maya Rudolph and Amy Poehler as two Bronx talk show hosts celebrating the arrival of temps that allow for ample sweater use! Confused? Click this LINK.
Ok, back to the topic of fashion. Let's explore my style, or lack there of.
It's not that I don't like clothing, it's just that I like comfort more than being "in" style or fashionable. Nothing beats an oversized, over worn, soft sweatshirt on a chilly evening. Not only does it feel great, but it's something that I can wear while I think back on fun times I've experienced while wrapped in its warmth.
Beyond the sweatshirt, let's talk yoga - yoga pants that is! While bending and twisting myself in to various poses isn't my game, those pants sure are. I know anytime I pull on a pair that I am not fooling anyone. I am not jetting off to yoga class, I am more likely to be sitting on my couch or in a cozy camp chair by a fall fire pit under the stars.
While my not-so-stylish ways may annoy some people, they are pretty friendly on my bank account. I tend to fall in love with a specific shirt or pair of pants and wear them down to the point my pop eventually uses them as his "shop rags" to apply wood stain or other manly woodworking activities that require a soft cloth. This is pretty good for my finances because the cost per wear is pretty amazing! (If you have never heard of cost per wear, click this LINK and educate yourself!)
Additionally, my clothing habits are better for the environment. By dressing comfy in clothing I like and wearing those clothes until they are pretty worn out, I am not feeding the throwaway fashion culture that is filling our landfills and harming our environment. Yes, even fashion can be harmful to our planet!
So, let's be honest here, maybe my lack of style and love of all things that are comfortable is a good thing after all, eh? Certainly something to ponder!
