So, I am pretty sure I am the only person in the history of the world to gain weight with mono. Do you remember Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion (I mean, how could anyone forget) and Romy claimed she lost 20 pounds due to mono, just in time for prom? This did not happen to me. Due to mono and the sedentary lifestyle it has caused in its evil wake (okay, and the holidays), my belly has grown a wee bit. Or ten wee bits. It happens, right? So my clothing options for work have decreased and a few people have asked if I’m preggers. I’m not. Which brings me to sweatshirts. I’ve mentioned my disdain for wearing sweatshirts to work before, so I have two questions for you: Would you wear a sweatshirt to work? And, do you consider this a sweatshirt? It sure is snuggly and made for a très cozy workday. I think the ruching, longer length, and cowl neck help to elevate the top from gym only territory to work appropriate (only in a super casual environment though, i.e. a children’s hospital). I may alter my stance on cozy workwear for tops like this that keep me warm and hide my belly, which helps to avoid further pregnancy queries. Thank you, lululemon, for creating non-sweatshirt sweatshirts and Nathan, for surprising me on Christmas with this (I’ve been living in it since then).
