    Default Pajamas in Public *gasp*

    I read an article today and I am not sure what I think about it. The tone is set to provoke and that is what it did. The comments get pretty rough with one another.

    Moms Who Wear Pajamas in Public Have Officially Let Themselves Go | The Stir

    Basically, the debate is whether or not wearing pjs while out and about means that you've 'given up."

    What I find interesting is the seemingly Herculean task it seems that putting a pair of pants on is for the people who left comments.

    PJs in public? Lazy or just another clothing choice? And this seems pretty straightforward but, given that you own pants or rather, non-sleeping-attire and don't have a medical condition which makes wearing non-sleeping attire a challenge . . . isn't it better to wear regular clothes in public.



    p.s. I rarely pop in here, but used to post a fair amount. Hello to some familiar names!

    How in the hell is someone going to judge other people about pajama pants when she openly admits to wearing yoga pants in public? People are fing insane.

    Good to see you! I remember you.

    ITA with the article. Wearing PJ's when one is leaving the house, short of a fire or medical emergency, is nothing but lazy. Same with sweats; if you're not heading to the gym or working on the car or yard, put on a pair of real pants.

    I would not leave the house in my PJ's unless it was an emergency such as a fire or someone broke a bone. Even if I am not planning to go anywhere for the day I still get dressed. I rarely wear make up or anything fancy though if I am staying home or just going to the store.

    People are nutso!

    I just was so surprised by the vitriol of the "I wear pjs and you can suck-it" crowd. So funny.

    yes I agree with Melissa. I HATE seeing pj pants in public outside of an ER setting or a baby. It's lazy for all people not just moms .

    Yoga pants/sweat pants are no different. At least a pair of jeans.

    Sounds like y'all are pretty much on the same page that I am. Wlillie, you went right to the judgement thing and that is interesting to me too.

    They were all upset about how judge-y the writer was. I am always baffled by this. We all 'judge' all the time.

    The pajama enthusiasts judge pjs as appropriate "out-shopping" attire. In my judgement, I think it's best to wear, you know, clothes. I feel like I am a little socially tone deaf when it comes to what is considered "judgemental."

    OT - I have never found jeans to be very comfortable. I normally either wear Khaki pants, dress pants, or a skirt or dress. Christmas Day is the only day of the year that I wear PJ's all day long.

    I wear jeans almost every day.

    I agree -- pajama pants are for inside. Workout or yoga gear is for when you're on your way there & back, and that's it, although I will stop for errands on the way home from yoga sometimes. I'm a little self-conscious about it but if I'm doing that, I have my yoga bag slung over my shoulder too, so hopefully the people I accidentally whap with it will know that's why I'm wearing yoga pants in public.

    But yeah, keep your pjs for home. Get dressed before you go out. It's not really that hard.

    At least jeans for me. I VERY rarely might wear sweats to the convenience store just to run in for something quick late at night or something. Never PJs even for that.
