Weekly Capsule 09.4: Jim-jams

See what I mean about roller-coaster weather? Yesterday I was in sweater and blanket scarf, and today it’s t-shirt and pajama-like pants (it’s the plaid. They look like my dad’s pajama pants.) I’m still trying to make these pants work-appropriate, but other than a white shirt and heels, I don’t know how else to dress them up. So for now I’m using them as my “work at home” pants – they’re really comfortable, so it feels like I’m wearing sweatpants, yet they’re actual pants, so it feels like I’m still making an effort. Unlike those “joggers” you see everywhere on the blogosphere a couple of months ago. Look, I’m all for comfy clothes, but I also hate giving old things new, pretentious names just to make something sound trendy. Joggers. Pfft. Shut up, they’re f**king sweats.

P/S: I’ve been watching so much British TV these days that it feels a little weird typing “pants”. In British English they would be “trousers” or “slacks”, and “pants” usually refer to underwear.
