Dear UWS Moms,
I know you’re all very busy, overwhelmed, and stressed out. I am, too. I work part-time, am doing an internship, and have two active boys. But I’d like to respectfully make a request.
Please stop wearing your workout clothes all day.
I know those Lululemon pants are comfortable. I know they make your ass look spectacular. But they’re doing nothing for your self-confidence.
And lest you think I’m being high and mighty, I wear my workout clothes to school drop-off at least 3 days a week. There are days when I want to just toss on another pair of sweats after a workout or even just leave on what I wore to spin class that day. Ewww. Indeed, I did this for a solid year after my second son was born. I stopped succumbing to these urges.
It’s amazing what even a pair of jeans, cute top and some sassy shoes can do for your demeanor. You can still be comfortable without looking like a hot mess. You’ll feel more put together and may actually even get a compliment. Don’t underestimate the power of a compliment from another woman. It’s empowering.
See you on the playground. I’ll be sure to notice your shoes.
