Since I began working at home, I spend a lot more time in workout clothes, a.k.a, fitness apparel, performance clothing, activewear or “athleisure.” I confess some days I stay in my yoga clothes for quite a while – running a few errands after class and even meeting friends for coffee.
But, I’m not apologetic about it. Performance clothing can be really nice!
“There are some people who think activewear should be reserved for exercising.
I respectfully disagree.”
When in Rome…Wear Your Activewear
Activewear has come a long way in the past decade. So has society’s acceptance of it – along with a renewed interest in healthy lifestyles.
My attitude about when it is appropriate or inappropriate to wear activewear beyond the gym is summed up by the cliché, “When in Rome.”
What I mean by that is observe what is acceptable among your peers and colleagues. Since I began working from home, many of the friends I see on weekdays also work from home, are fitness instructors, or are stay-at-home moms. If we’ve all just been exercising, we’re all fine with meeting up wearing our activewear.
Since I’m spending more time in my yoga clothes, it has become necessary to divert some of the money I used to spend on other types of clothing to invest in my workout style. Because I have a really bad case of poison ivy right now, I will not share a picture of myself in my new activewear. Instead, they are pictured below.
