Most girls at my university did that, but I think the only time I ever wore pajamas out was wearing a pair of plaid flannel pajama bottoms to a drive-through when I was ill. I used to wear a lot of smarter clothes...I never wore trainers and rarely wore jeans or unfitted t-shirts. Once I borrowed a friend's clothes for the day for fun (tracksuit bottoms, a t-shirt, tennis shoes, and a baseball cap), and no one recognized me at first.

Once again I invoke the Great Bono:

I went to stats this morning in my PJs. I'm still in them...I think I might put on real clothes for bio at 10.

Guess it's different for each person.
I didn't mean "good" as in fancy or uncomfortable; it can be jeans and a t-shirt or whatever you normally wear that's comfortable. Fresh & clean is really what I meant, and the more I think about it, the more I think that wearing to school--or anywhere in public--the clothes that you slept in is just kinda gross to me. Like eww. No offense, U2Democrat. But you're right, different strokes...

Wearing PJs out is repulsive to me because those same people would crawl right back into bed with the same thing on. That's just disgusting.

No. Never. Why would anyone do such a thing?



None taken, joyfulgirl!

I see girls/women at Target like this all the time, it's ridiculous.

Take ten minutes to throw on some jeans, please. It just proves once again how lazy some Americans can be. No offense to those college students here, but...

And in 10 minutes I can put on a suit and tie, so it takes even less.
Wearing pyjamas to school basically suggests to me that you don't care about even basic hygiene and appearance. Not even the hippies in the Sixties were this slothful.

Back in my school days, they usually had a "Spirit Week" or similar theme days during homecoming week. Either week would have goofy theme days like tacky day, fifties day, or, perhaps the inspiration for this new fashion, at our school it was "Pajama and Socks Day." You didn't even have to wear slippers or flip flops, just socks. I thought all of these themes were stupid anyway so I boycotted them. In fact, I think I were a button down and khaki pants just to fudge up the mainstream.

I wore military fatigues on "Hippy Day." No, not really. I'm not that controversial and offensitive.

hygiene?

I may wear pjs to class on occasion, but I never go unshowered or without brushing my teeth.
