I have a pair of pineapple print sweatpants. They are — inexplicably — mint green, with bright pineapples all over them. I bought them in….wait for it…2014 (first featured here, please don’t judge the horrifying photo filter phase I was going through), and they’re still in heavy rotation today. And by “heavy rotation” I mean they’re the sweatpants I typically wear each morning when I creep downstairs to get a little writing in before the kids get up. And they are also the ones you’ll typically find me in if I’ve shut myself up in my house to get more writing done. Annmarie, after popping over and finding me in front of my laptop clad (again) in said pineapple sweatpants — with no makeup, frizzy hair and a glazed look in my eyes — finally nicknamed them my ‘blogging sweatpants’. And Mike has asked me ever-so-kindly to not wear them to bed anymore.
So there’s that.
I think the reason for my long love affair with the pineapple sweatpants is because they are both fabulous and ridiculous. They’re amazing, but in a very don’t-take-yourself-too-seriously kind of way. The heart wants what the heart wants, and what mine seems to want every morning, noon, and night since 2014, is mint-green pineapple print sweatpants.
So when I came across these palm-print sweatpants (also ridiculous and fabulous) and felt the same sort of swoony rush of happiness pulling them on, I knew SOMEONE ELSE WOULD CARE. I mean…I can’t be the only girl in the world to appreciate an irreverent pair of sweatpants, can I? In a world of 7.53 billion people, there’s got be another one who likes her sweatpants like her Paul Simons: still crazy after all these years.
