I’ve Got Shit To Do: Why you shouldn’t care about your weekend attire

I was having this discussion with a colleague about how when you own a house, you have so much shit to do on the weekends, it’s nuts. We agreed that fashion was no longer a big deal and we both didn’t care about what we wear, because it simply doesn’t matter anymore.Why even bother.


You get to a point in life where you don’t have time to care about what you’re wearing or to look your finest at all times. You’re wearing rain boots, joggers, an old sweater, a baseball cap and you’re out running errands, cutting the grass, cleaning the pool, cleaning the house…the list is endless!

My fall outdoor clothing fashion

I have some friends who would look at me and say ”you’re going out like that?” I say hell ya I’m just going to run errands who cares, I got so much to do at home, no time to get all pretty if I want to get things done.

Working on cars, always working on cars

If you have a busy weekend ahead of you, which is generally what my weekends look like (working on my cars, cleaning the yard, cleaning the house, etc.) there’s absolutely no point in dressing up ”nice” to do these chores. You’re going to get dirty, sweaty and more dirty. And if you have to run out to get something quickly, are you really going to shower and get all pretty just to run to the store and then come back to your chores? I don’t think so.

Just chill and drink wine

On top of it all, It’s the weekend just relax, if you’re at home doing things around the house, or just chilling out, who are you trying to impress? Your significant other isn’t going to be bothered by your attire, chances are he or she will join you in this full blown ”vedge-mode”. Save that pretty look for a nice evening out or dinner with friends. It’s important to give yourself a break on the weekend, a break from everything also includes the way you dress, makeup, hair etc.

Doing your laundry perhaps?  Hahaha usually laundry is a weekend thing so if you’re like me you’ll be wearing sweats or pyjama’s while you’re doing your weekly laundry run, pretty much another reason why you’re wearing comfy clothes. FullSizeRender (21)

Don’t sweat it, nobody cares really. My comfort on weekends is one of the things that help me disconnect from everything. As a homeowner, you realize that nobody is there to pick up after you, or to do anything for you. You’re the one who needs to do the chores and maintain your household. trust me the last thing you want to be wearing when you’re doing is housework is a pair of tight jeans, talk about getting your panties in a bunch!

In conclusion what I’m trying to say here is that as you get older, as you become a homeowner, a parent , etc, things that once were important to you like looking top notch 24/7 eventually don’t feel as important. We live such busy lives with work, school, managing your house all week, etc., Is it wrong to have weekend comfy clothes? Not at all, join the club and feel great!

What do your weekend comfort clothes look like?
