Love Letter to Sweatpants and Flip Flops

I love sweatpants. I just had to write it down after I shout it out (figuratively) several times. Sweatpants are comfortable, can be cute, chill and perfect to spend time in with a loved one or romantic hopeful.

I’ve been a girl that loves the well dressed guys. When I read a recent Us Weekly, there is a quote from Lady Gaga that made me laugh because of how many celebrities say silly things about sweatpants.

“I feel that flip-flops are the downfall of many relationships.

It’s, like, first it’s the flip-flops, and then it’s the sweatpants, …

It’s the gateway drug to no sex.” Lady Gaga

Back in the day, I would have agreed. Yet, when I met my now-husband, the first time we went out he was in jeans, grey t-shirt, cute hair, and flip-flops. But, you know, the clothes don’t make the man. And he is a wonderful man. We started dating and one of the first times he came over after work, we both wanted to put on clothes to chill. I lent him a pair of man’s sweatpants (after a great party, I borrowed a friend’s boyfriend’s pair when we stayed the night, and they broke up before I could return them. They didn’t break up over someone wearing sweatpants.) that I had in my closet and it was never an issue between us. In fact, I loved that I could relax and be myself in the most casual of ways and still be sexy. The fact that we have been married seven years, two kids, and still crazy about each other. And, I love him in his flip-flops.

So, I say rock your sweatpants, ladies!
