    Default Do you wear workout clothing as casual wear?

    As the years of being a stay at home mum have gone by I have found myself wearing workout clothing such as Lorna Jane for everyday wear. just wondering if anyone else does this. I am not a fitness person but for some reason I feel better when I wear this type of clothing as opposed to jeans or shorts etc. Am I odd?

    Ha ... Well it's not Lorna Jane (I wish!!) but I have found myself picking up DS1 from school in fitness wear. But I have usually gone to the gym or done some form of exercise. I've also been know to spend a whole day in PJs until pick up time :/

    Yes. But only to do to child care pick up, run to the shops, etc. Not if I'll be out for a while and not if I'm meeting anyone.
    I hate jeans so would rather wear leggings/yoga pants and a hoodie.

    LOL no I only wear it when I've had to wear it, as in I've actually been working out.
    A mum at school used to wear sports clothes all the time, I asked her which gym she went to and she responded with "oh I don't go to gym...I don't actually do any exercise" it was a bit awkward. She stopped doing it after then too! Oops

    I just assume that people wearing gym/exercise clothes do so because they are going to or coming home from the gym/exercising.

    No, never, ever. I loathe workout gear anywhere but when you're working out.

    I live in jeans when I'm not working. I find them so comfortable. I've even managed to find pregnancy jeans that work for me. Bring on cooler weather!!

    I had to reword this to no, I only wear it for exercise. Trackies and a singlet I will wear to duck out though.

    I don't even own trackies. Neither does DH nor any of the kids.

    I have a serious issue with trackies - I think it's bordering on a phobia. And fleece jackets. I'd die if I ever moved to the country

    I just don't understand why people would wear fitness gear if they don't ever work out?
    It would be like me wearing motocross gear when I've got no interest in it.
