I am in desperate need of corduroy pants for our winter trip to Croatia. I am hoping against all hope that we get there this year. But just in case we don’t, I am creating Croatian inspired recipes. These choc nut bars are pastries typical to the country.
No one would use the word fashionista to describe me. I have an innate sense of style, which is unique to me. During my life I have gone through many phases. I have done the ultra smart office attire, as well as jeans and sneakers when I worked in steak houses. For the time I worked in a psychiatric practice I wore smart pants, and tops to suit the weather. And when I began my business journey in the Western Cape clothing was bought with the hardware stores I was calling on in mind. About 5 years ago my entire wardrobe was overhauled as I wanted a new look. And since then, this has not changed for the summer. I changed my winter clothes last year as I found a combination of comfort and warmth that is better suited to my working life.
Stuck away in my cupboard are dresses I can wear to formal occasions and I relish wearing them when the time is right. For one season I wore tracksuit pants. I was feeling a bit down in the dumps, and the comfort clothing suited my mood. And I would have stuck to wearing them had a friend not intervened. She told me I looked awful and that very day I went and bought what became my favourite pair of cords, and jeans. However, tracksuit pants are all the rage right now. Smart ones for that working from home look. Fancy ones to go out in. And others ones would call athlesuireware. But no matter what, I will not be buying any! I think just putting them on will make me feel sad. Not only because of the feelings I had when I last wore tracksuit pants, but because that friend has since passed on.
Do you wear tracksuit pants, and if so, just at home, or when you go out?
