LIFESTYLE | The Pants Optional Movement

I have a confession to make.

Usually around five seconds after I walk through my door at home, I tend to de-pant. There's nothing better than pulling off a tight pair of jeans after a long day at work or slipping out of a stylish skirt on a hot day to instead relax.

Sometimes I'll go for the option of light leggings instead or small pajama shorts, but generally I almost always say goodbye to jeans/pants/trousers/skirts etc. I simply don't feel relaxed enough until I do.

In fact - another confession - this is actually my current blogging space (though this is soon to change so do keep your eyes peeled!).

And there's NO way I can wear something as restricting as jeans in bed, can I? Especially when I've got fresh sheets on the bed.

I recently heard about the Pants Optional movement which has been taking place throughout August, so I'm definitely not the only one!

The general idea is to acknowledge that so many things can be achieved with or without pants and that when being uncomfortable is no longer an issue, life is better. I mean who doesn't want to spend the whole day lounging around in their favorite pair of underwear?

I want to share a bit with you all about how I embrace the pants optional lifestyle and when pants are definitely not needed, so that we can all join in on this movement! (and yes, these are all clean & PC. Mostly.)

I don't have my own place yet and neither does my boyfriend; so for the meantime lazy clothes or less are a necessity on a Sunday. I fully plan to insist on naked Sunday's once we get our own place though. On the rare occasion that I do have a Sunday off to give in to the pants optional movement, I usually start the day with breakfast in bed and a catch up with New Girl and Made In Chelsea in 4od.

Oh yes. Is binging Netflix with pants on even a thing?! How can you sit or lay for hours at a time when you're not comfortable? It just doesn't bare thinking about. My next big binge is going to be Stranger Things of course, but I'm also trying to find the guts to watch The Mist and I'm currently catching up on Jane The Virgin. 

Sometimes you just run out of clean clothes because you're too lazy to do any washing until it all piles up at the end of the month *raises hand slowly*.

Well. This one's obvious, isn't it?

Well I know this one is kind of dangerous. But it's also kind of fun to dance around the kitchen half naked cooking along to your favourite music, no?

How about you? Will you be joining the pants optional movement? Let me know!
