I live in New York City; we don’t have the luxury of walking outdoors in our pajamas. If we want to go anywhere, we have to bundle up to walk there during the winter. Therefore I was shocked when I saw two people out and about in their pajamas yesterday.
These photos were taken within minutes of each other yesterday at a Dunkin’ Donuts while on the way to my sister’s for Christmas. My husband and I were standing on line to get some breakfast and caffeine and I saw this guy paying for his coffee.
This guy managed to put some minor effort towards putting a coat on, but note the pajama bottoms (with little penguins on them) and Adidas flip flops. I know what a caffeine fix feels like but, dude, put some pants on!
Next, standing right behind him was this girl wearing her house slippers. While they look warm, they’re slippers.
Now, I know that many of us wear UGG Classic Tall boots as outerwear. There are many Australians out there laughing at us for doing that, no doubt. However, at least UGG boots have total coverage. These slippers, possibly also by UGG, are slip in slippers and her bare feet are showing. Is it really that hard to throw on some shoes before leaving the house? Have we become this lazy?
Maybe I’m missing something. Perhaps living in the city has caused me to miss out on some popular trends going on in the suburban areas. Like I said, few of us in a city, who need to walk, have the luxury of keeping out PJ bottoms and slippers on. What do you think? Have we gone another step closer towards absolute slothiness or does this trend make sense to everyone besides me?
