I wear these pants far too often, though usually only around the house, since they’re basically… sweatpants. (Which obviously makes them insanely comfortable.) But last night, I was tired and couldn’t muster up the energy to get dressed up, and I thought “come on, I’m just going to our friends’ house for dinner, it will be Ronnie and his best friend Peter, Peter’s girlfriend and myself – who am I trying to impress?”. So, I got in the car, I drove to Stockholm and rang the doorbell – in my sweatpants – only to be greeted by a ton of people I’d never met before. Turns out there was quite the party going on in there! “Ooops, did we forget to tell you?” Oh well. There’s no law against wearing sweatpants to a party, sure, and I was definitely the most comfy guest there. But still… In hindsight, I wish I’d at least put on a skirt. I mean, I dress up more than this when I’m going to sit all alone my office all day!
But you know what? I realized just now that this is very much like me. Back at University, the people in our class thought my best friend Fanny and I were nuts – we would get all dolled up for school, in dresses and high heels and make up, and then go out at night (and hey, we were students, we always went out) wearing jeans, t-shirts and Converse sneakers. We figured it was nothing but logical: we loved fashion and saw school as a great opportunity to dress up, but when we went out to clubs or concerts, we wanted to dance dance dance! Then we needed to be as comfortable as possible, because seriously, how do people dance in high heels?! I’m no Beyoncé, that’s for sure – I need my flats if I’m going to jump up and down for three hours straight.
