I have had it!

I am sorry if I am going to offend anyone, but I have got to get this off my chest. I am so sick of people wearing their yoga pants to places that aren't yogaishy..... Like the mall, or Staples, or the grocery store. I think that there are a few places yoga pants are appropriate and those places are yoga class, the gym, your house... and possibly a scrapbook retreat weekend. I do not think that yoga pants are a substitute for regular clothes. I am so tired of people wearing theirs everywhere they go. And I get why they are... I totally do. I bought a pair of yoga pants from LouLou Lemon last year. They were $98. More than I have spent on any other pair of pants. More than I spend on most of my shoes... but just because I forked out the money doesn't legitmize them to be worn EVERYWHERE I go.
So, why now... why am I ranting today? Well... last night I was meeting a person in Calgary in the Staples parking lot to exchange some scrapbook stuff, and a woman walked through the parking lot in her yoga pants. But what is worse?? She was wearing boots..... with heels. Are you kidding me????
So, I propose this... buy yoga pants! Wear yoga pants! Enjoy the comfort of yoga pants.... but if you are leaving the house for any reason other than yoga.... put something else on. I firmly believe that yoga pants are half a step up from sweat pants, and I think we all agree those really shouldn't be worn in public... :)

I love it! and totally agree ... seriously people. I've seen them too many places that there was no yoga around. I love the rant.

Okay, Kim, I have to say that I agree with you to a point. I think if someone were to choose yoga pants as their outfit for the day, that would not be cool. However, If I am getting dressed to go to my fitness class, I don't really want to take two pairs of pants so I can wear one in the class and one for travel. And sometimes, I have to do errands after class, like get some groceries or the mail...

But I would NEVER *gasp!* wear yoga pants with heals. How silly.

I guess we can't be friends then HAHAHA you must hate me and trash talk behind my back LOL
I wear them almost daily (as you probably know). But I own one pair of jeans now that aren't ripped. So I feel yoga pants are better than ripped jeans. Comfort outweighs anything when I'm running a million kids to a million activities in a day.

But I have never worn them with heals or anything other than runners. Yes I'm a mom and a slob... :)
