He Said, She Said: Bumming it vs. Dressing Nice

I think it’s easy to say that “confidence is key” and “dress to impress” are the standards to follow when trying to make a first impression or show your style, but it can’t always be the case every day. What I’m trying to say is that there are just some days where you don’t feel like showing off to the world and just putting in all that time and energy for another day. Just bum it out, you know? Honestly, there are just days where you have so many clothes and want to decide which different style to wear on a specific day, that you don’t have to go all -out every day.

Of course, there are some exceptions where you really need to dress to impress. Perhaps it’s for a job interview, a presentation, a special event, to impress a girl or boy, whatever it may be. However, there are just some days where you just want to wear a t-shirt and sweatpants to school and honestly, that matters much more than what people have to think about you.

I’ll admit, when I wake up in the morning and try to figure out what to wear, I honestly care about wearing something that makes me look good, but is also so comfortable and I think the latter is just as important as anything. This isn’t to say that I would want to wear that t-shirt and sweatpants combo all the time; I like to switch it up and try something new. Be it a long-sleeved shirt and jeans, a sweatshirt and shorts if the weather is just right, or a hoodie and sweatpants. Every day is different.

Right now as I’m typing this, I’m wearing a sweatshirt and sweatpants. They are perhaps the clothes I most like to wear during the winter season due to how comfortable they are and how simple the style is. For me, it’s a classic. They are the clothes that can fit any scenario during the day. From going to school, to going to the mall, going to the gym and then going to sleep – they work for anything!

We all have lazy days. We also have serious days, and that’s perfectly fine. That self-care is really vital, and what you’re wearing before the entire world is the first thing that people will notice about you. However, it doesn’t hurt to get comfortable and wear what YOU like instead of going all-out. In the end, it’s always about keeping your style.
