I've come to the realization that there are many simple ways to be just as (or more!) comfy in cute clothes. Flowy skirts are as cozy as sweats, cute sweaters are as comfy as hoodies. When I went to take my MCAT in a maxi-skirt all the kids in sweats looked at me like I had four heads. You all know my policy, though; dress to make yourself feel confident and let it translate to your performance. Acknowledge the significance of whatever event you are involved in by dressing as if you care.
In the words of Mindy Kaling:
So yesterday I did so. I was sore (I finally reached the 10 mile mark in running yesterday, yay!) and kind of just wanted to wear work out clothes. I swear if I went to the gym in my exercise clothes half as much as I just ate in them I'd be a much thinner woman. I basically did (leggings, duh), because I'm not sure if I'm the only one, but I use yoga pants for just about everything BUT yoga. Regardless, I ran into a few friends from undergrad that I hadn't chatted with in a while, and I'm glad I made it out of the house looking (semi) okay.
I put on that lipgloss and became slightly more psyched. I was still comfy, but a step-up from gym clothes.
