A post on housepants, from my housepants. (That's the subtitle)
I feel sure that "housepants" is not a word, but I also feel like it should be.
Maybe I will hyphenate it: house-pants? That's better.
I have been stuck in house-pants for a solid 3 months now and I am really feeling ready for it to be over. I know that it is socialy acceptable, or at least acceptable in my mom circles, and to Mike and the 2 and 3 year olds who live with me, for me to wear my maternity and post partum yoga style pants all day/every day. But I hates it.
|I wear these pants every 3rd day- alternating between them and 2 other favs. It's a great little schedule.|
Nothing makes me feel less like my day is started than residing in the same kind of pants that I sleep in, heck some days they are the very same pants. The problem is that I can't seem to find a good alternative right now. My lone good maternity jeans only stay up over my bottom half for 2.3 seconds anymore after I put them on and all other jeans I own refuse to stay up on their own and leave me looking like the neighborhood plumber every time I bend down.
What are my options here? Am I doomed to be wearing pajama jeans until I rid myself of the muffin top? Or must I give in to the skin-tight jegging trend because at least they will stay up, even if they do look painted on?
|I tried out a pair of these and pretty much ended up like Kramer here.|
Or should I simply adjust my expectations for what these post-pregnancy days hold clothing-wise? Are these questions rhetorical? It's all so puzzling.
