Thursdays this summer are Craft Beer Days at my company. Supporting local breweries, craft beers are served on the patio (our outdoors party spot – and yes, we have an indoor party spot as well) at 4 p.m. So when YA’s team decided to go into the office for the first time, now that their building’s updating has been finished up, they chose Thursday. In preparation for this, YA has purchased a few things for her cube: pencil holder, markers, a frame with changeable letters.
On Wednesday afternoon we got an email encouraging us to wear our “Pride swag” on Thursday as well. I didn’t have to worry about this because I would be working from home, but YA was obviously pondering her choice. I laughed when she told me this and asked if she had any yoga pants that could be considered pride-worthy, since that is her primary outfit choice. She haughtily (actually VERY haughtily) told that she doesn’t own any yoga pants; she wears leggings or joggers, not yoga pants.
I was dumbfounded; if you had asked me, I would have said she had at least 25 pairs of yoga pants. Guess I’m wrong. I looked up leggings and joggers and yoga pants online. If there is a difference between these, I can’t tell. Once more, fashion has left me in the dust. I pulled out what I have always called my yoga pants and YA says they are not yoga pants, they are leggings. Of course, it doesn’t really matter, since I haven’t worn them since the pandemic started. It’s been mostly sweat pants and jersey shorts for months with an occasional pair of jeans or khaki shorts. I actually wore a sundress to Blevins on Sunday – it felt weird.
What fashion choices leave you scratching your head?
