Does it matter what your loungewear looks like?
Now that my life is (mostly) confined to home, I seem to be wearing more or less the same outfit all the time. In other words, I spend most of my days in the same clothes that I sleep in…
Yes, it’s shocking, I know. But hardly surprising. I mean, who dresses up at home?!?
Of course, I make an effort (or at least pretend to make an effort) to look somewhat presentable when I have online meetings. But when I’m home alone, and there’s nobody to see me, why bother?
Ah, but my husband is there, you might argue. Shouldn’t I make an effort to look nice for him?
Well… I’ve never been the type of woman to dress up for a man. And I’m not about to start now. And, for the record, I don’t expect him to dress up for me, either.
Because sometimes it’s good to just relax and let go of all the (mostly self-imposed) demands to look a certain way or do certain things. Sometimes it’s good to just be, without trying too hard, and focus on how something feels like instead of how it looks like.
And that, in my opinion, is the point of loungewear: I don’t care what it looks like as long as it feels good on my skin. And as long as I can sleep in it, of course.
