Joggers in fashion over 40 – can we do that?

You have already noticed that I love sleek clothes. Thus, jogging pants or sweat pants are not along my line because they are “so bulky”. Even when I just hang around the house relaxing or do yard work, I wear sleek jeans. Jogging pants were a no no for me. Until this winter, I would have said I cannot imaging that I would ever buy a pair of jogging pants! However, it happened this winter that I actually bought a pair of jogging pants! How comes? Well you know I love leather, and the jogging pants were leather, and in addition they were sleek. Thus, they were crying my name and I listened. 😉

Sleek joggers are unexpected

Can you imagine the reactions of my friends and colleagues when I wore them the first time? One of my colleagues run around to tell everybody in the department “Nicole is wearing jogging pants.” She even called her husband to tell him! When he did not believe her, she even requested that he would come up the stairs when he would pick her up from work that evening. Later she realized that the jogging pants were leather, and she said “now I understand why you bought them.” I really liked that comment.:)
