The random crap you wear when you go home for the holidays, typically unearthed in your childhood bedroom closet, drawers and the plastic bins under your bed.

There is a high likelihood that you don’t pack a toothbrush to go home for the holidays (your mom will have an extra) let alone actual outfits. If there’s a formal occasion on the itinerary, you may remember to pack a nice pair of shoes. Otherwise, you rely on the good faith that your parents wouldn’t dare donate your nostalgia to Good Will and the fact that high school intramural volley ball sweatpants will always fit.

 

Besides, who are you trying to impress? The dog? Your family loves you no matter what and your middle school crush is married. You just want to be comfy, and comfy means t-shirts from freshman orientation, footwear that was cool in the year 2000, fleece jackets, a topknot and your old glasses. (You forgot your contacts, too.)

 

…The prescription is from like, 5 years ago, but whatever — the two biggest things on your social agenda when you’re home are reading and listening to podcasts.

 

And if you do go out? So what. Everyone else will be in their home clothes, too.

    Ha! I don’t have any clothes at my parents’ house anymore. But my cat print leggings, Instagram tshirt and oversized men’s cardigan go with me everywhere I travel.

  • Definitely old track and cross country sweats and T shirts, 5k T shirts, etc. But I’d have to say the prize of my collection is a giant purple T shirt with Chuckie Finster’s face on it that I used to wear as a dress when I was a toddler. I wear a pair of men’s polar fleece plaid pajama pants with it (purchased for $5 at Ocean State Job Lot). Yes, it’s one of my favorite outfits. Yes, I’ve been wearing it while having unexpected small talk with a roommate’s one night stand while he was on his way out the door. No shame.

    I used to pack to be fashionable when I was home…but then I realized nobody in bumfuck New England dresses nice, like, ever so I just threw in some basic jeans and sweaters and called it “packing light”. And then stealing my BF’s only tee shirt he brought….

  • My Hohm Klohz includes a Von Dutch trucker hat. This should explain what kind of community I grew up in. (read: trashy)
