I’m in a lull at the moment. Not a trough or a funk or a low – a lull.
I can’t be bothered to decide what to wear in the morning. I’m fed up with all clothes – not just my clothes, ALL clothes. So I’m going back to wearing my gym kit during the day.
Everyone goes on about GapFit and H&M sports tights and they’re both okay but nothing marvellous. GapFit are very flattering but the pair I tried on seemed abnormally scratchy, whereas the whole point of tooling about in technical sportswear is that you are snug as a bug in a rug all day long.
So I have 1 old pair from Sweaty Betty, (such a clip joint, that place), 1 non-itchy pair from H&M, which are so boring I can’t even be bothered to describe them and then I have ordered 1 pair from Lululemon that everyone bangs on about so much.
It’s this pair and they were £82 and called the Wunder Under Pant III * Special Edition, which sounds like a show name for a pedigree cat, so they had better be freaking amazing when they show up.
Despite selling sports tights made of old knitting needs and wire wool, Gap are otherwise doing some good sportsleisurewear at the moment and I got this long hoodie, which has thumb holes (I love thumbholes, SO NINETIES!) and a long bit at the back to cover your VPL and reasonably long at the front to cover one’s “personnage” as my friend Irish Mary terms it. Having long back disease means that I also need to wear a long vest from H&M for full modesty, but on anyone normal, it would probably do the job on its own.
I also realise that I have no sweatshirts, having given loads to a charity in a rage after wearing them every day for a full calendar year after Sam was born so I got this jolly red one from Gap, too – to be worn over the grey hoodie.
I always wear Asics trainers because, I don’t know, it seems so much less credulous than wearing a pair from Nike. And I have a number of long socks worn shrugged down over the ankle to cover that wind-blasted bit between end of shoe and beginning of sports tight.
