5 Super Comfy 'Pajama-Clothes' Moms Won't Be Embarrassed to Wear in Public

yoga sweatsI had an a-ha moment yesterday while I was folding my laundry and realized that literally every article of clothing could be categorized in the "pajama" category: I never get dressed.

I work out of my house two days a week, and yes, those days I put on "real clothes", but the other three? It's a sweatpants bonanza. And I'm not proud of it. In fact, I feel like a dirtbag. It's just, I'm of the mind that if I don't really have to get dressed, why bother?

This all started when I became a mom -- okay, fine, it didn't, but can't you use being a mom as an excuse for anything? Look, I don't want to be this way, but I don't see myself becoming a "get up and get dressed" kind of person. However, I want to make a small effort. So I'm going to transition from "pajamas" to "lounge-wear".

If you don't get gussied up each day, here are 5 really cool, comfy pieces of clothing you can wear in public and not look like you just woke up or are going to yoga.

$79 for a freakin' T SHIRT???? You have to be insane! (And it does look like something I would only wear in the house)

How hard is it to put on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt? I would NEVER pay $79 for a shirt, the only time I bought a pair of $100 pants was because they were on sale for $50 and those super expensive pants got a hole in them. Never had my $30 pair do that.

Those first pants were hideous. :S I never get dressed up either, but none of these clothes struck my fancy. And the prices ... Yee-ouch! Bloggers must make a lot of money. Anyway, I mostly stick to capris and tees with flats.

Those prices are insane. Kohls has some amazing yoga pants that flare for like 20 bucks and I usually grab q couple when they r 50% off at 10 bucks. Currently wearing them with a nice blouse and heels at work. Perfect

I would only pay thrift store prices for any of those outfits/items and then I would ONLY wear them at home while cleaning,working out or as pajamas.Look, I don't expect everyone to get all gussied up every time they leave the house;I know how hard it is being a mommy so I don't judge others when they go out into public wearing "comfy"/"house clothes"...but for ME, who is already slightly chubby and getting closer to 40 and all the WONDERFUL things that comes with age, I feel better when I get dressed(nothing fancy of course but at least jeans and a nice t-shirt), put on make up and do my hair. It makes me feel put together,confident and not like a frumpy housewife that has no respect for herself...but again, those are just MY insecurities and how I deal with them(.and I'm so glad it doesn't make my daughters think that THEY have to wear makeup,which I love.) Basically, I don't care WHAT you wear,( as long as you're not dressed like a hooker,)lol and I won't think badly of you...but my opinion is that I don't consider the items pictured as "leaving the house" clothes.

I can see why those first pants were called Walk of Shame. They were ugly. The rest looked fine, though I wouldnt pay most of those prices.

Your cover photo- if I had that body I could pull anything off any time of day too. Add 20 years and 50lbs and see if you think that's still acceptable...

Almost everything was way too expensive and ugly. I could find better and cheaper at Walmart.

Nope, sorry - I still would be embarrassed to wear every single item in this list, except possibly the cardigan.

Those were terrible choices. Expensive and ugly!
