    Yeah, i HATE that look! I do not understand all the college age people (our town is packed with them) that run out in the nasty jammies. And the not fixed hair. At least brush it. It IS lazy. I really don't think it's worth sitting and being nasty over though... People need to relax. lol

    I have run very late at night into a convenience store for milk or gas or something in nice sweats. That's the closest.

    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."

    Amen sister! And I've missed you Bunnyfufu! I absolutely think that PJ's in public on adults are bizarro. And yes, in my mind I think "WTF" and probably lump them into several other areas of clothing or personal "ick" judgement. I don't mind admitting it. Don't waste a lot of thought on it, or bother to give dirty looks or anything, just think that it looks sloppy and like someone doesn't care how they present to the world. I do believe that how we present ourselves to the world does matter some. It isn't everything, but it isn't nothing, either.

    Then again, it doesn't bother me that I've read articles judging me as the "lululemon Mom" or the "SUV Mom". I do go out in workout gear all the time ~ because I've worked out that morning and haven't had time to shower yet and am taking my kids to school or running an errand before I shower in the afternoon and go out that night or something. I just can't compare nice, quality performance wear and someones flannel pooh pajamas ~ one is intended to crossover from the gym to the store, one is intended to sleep in, IMO. In fact, I just got back from picking my daughter up at school and am still wearing my gym clothes. Will shower and change into "real" clothing before I go out with girlfriends tonight.

    Judging is fine. And PJ's in public look lazy.

    Running out in your lululemons to run errands is pretty big here, or at least it seems. I see girls standing at the bus stop in their pj-ish pants - sloppy and lazy and gross. On the flip side, I've seen some pretty exhausted moms sitting patiently in urgent care with their wee one, dressed in sweats, and I don't blame them for a sec. I would never hunker down for a 4 or 5 hour waiting room stay in jeans. nope. Give me comfy pants. Generally though, short of an emergency-type situation, get dressed in real pants.

    What gets me are the people who wear slippers as shoes? WTH? Slippers and flannel pants are not meant for shopping trips or classrooms. Ick.

    I do think it looks like you've given up and it makes me sad for these moms/college students/teens. I get asked all.of.the.time. how I remain "put together" or "polished" as the mom of 5-- and it drives me nuts that society expects us to fall apart after having a kid or two. To me, it matters how one presents themselves and is worth the investment of time and energy. There are lots of comfortable options that are easy to slip on that aren't pajamas-- find a comfy basic black skirt, some non-wrinkle khakis, well-fitting jeans, a cute jacket and some boots and you are set.

    I dont see people in pajamas very often around here, unless I go into the town a few over that has a college. When I do see it, I dont give it to much thought.

    I dont mind people in workout gear, but maybe that is because I do wear mine sometimes if changing before or after my workout is not fitting into my schedule.

    This has made me wonder if other moms judge me? I go work out most days before picking up DD2 from school so I am in workout gear but have the 2 littles? Oh well, if they are judging for that then maybe they will miss all the other stuff they could judge for

    This is kind of how I judge (and ya, I do it): If you look like you're either on your way to or from the gym then workout gear is fine. I admit I don't change out of my stuff at the gym because i'm going straight home to take the stuff off and jump into the shower. I would LOVE to use the gym at work but I don't have time during my lunch hour to work out, shower, hair, makeup, dressed etc. If you're wearing workout pants, uggs, parka (and I am not against any of those articles of clothing separately) and smell like cigarette smoke....wanker. Pajama bottoms, t-shirt and braless in the grocery store or 7/11...ewww.

    I wear sweats all the time on the weekends or holidays. I also don't blow dry my hair or wear makeup. If people think I've "given up" I'm okay with that. I prefer to wear comfortable clothes when possible.

    We see many, many people around here wearing pajama pants. Sometimes it's not even the fact that they are wearing the pajama pants that we notice but rather the shirt/pajama combination.

    Hi Bunnyfufu! Long time no see!

    Anyway, I don't even know how it's debatable that wearing your PJ's in public is lazy. "I didn't feel like bothering to put on clothes today" just is lazy. Having said that, I really don't care if someone wants to be lazy. Personally, I don't really feel good until I've showered and put on clean clothes in the morning so going out in my PJs isn't something I'm into, but if someone else doesn't feel like getting dressed, oh well. I won't give you a dirty look or even spend many thoughts on it, I just don't think you can argue that you look "put together" in your jammies. LOL

    Like Melissa and Laurie though, if I am on my way home from working out and need to run an errand, I will do so in my workout clothes. Do I look "put together" at that moment? Nah, probably not. But I also don't care if someone thinks I look less than my best. When I'm trying to rock an outfit, you'll know it. :P
