To socialize or talk informally preferably over a drink. Word forms: 3rd person singular present tense hobnobs, present participle hobnobbing, past tense, past participle hobnobbed.
But honestly. Hobnob is a safe space for women who prefer iced coffee over a perfectly curated wardrobe. It’s is a daycare center for women who are intrigued by trends, but also don’t care. It is an open bar for those who swear on vintage Chanel and whose pension funds hang in their closets.
Here’s a three step guide on how to wear yoga pants in places where it may, or may not be, socially acceptable.
Carin McCormac is Head of feelings and content at ATP Atelier. She also writes about really important things (like snacks) and takes photos of her dog.
I know, you should never say never. But I’m sorry, I will never (ever) be a yoga girl. I will never find my inner peace or what not. I will forever prioritize hysterical crying and cold french-fries in front of the television. That being said, I love the stretchy pants that go with the before mentioned physical activity. I love this particular item of clothing so much that I have taken it upon myself (for everyone’s sake, really) to push the boundaries of the physical space wherein they by society (looking at you, Stephanie) are allowed to be worn. Here are three suggestions on how to style these wonderful enablers of comfort, if you are interested in joining the movement. You can thank me l8er.

If you do not consider this outfit fun, you and I have ve-ry different ideas of the word, and we shouldn’t be friends. But I realize, to my disappointment however, that that is not the purpose of this sartorial story. So, we’re good either way. These yoga pants by Outdoor Voices aren’t even for yoga, they are for #doingthings, so you can imagen my love for them. Works just as well in the office as when I’m walking my dog. But, let’s be honest, my dog is tiny and refuses to walk more than a few blocks, which takes approx. the same amount of energy as performing my duties as Head of feelings, so I must admit, that comparison was not my best one. Well, to get back on topic, I’m living my best life here, looking like a kid on my way to a birthday party.

Have you seen the scene in Homeland when Carrie yells “OH MY GOD, YOU LOOK SO PROFESSIONAL??” to her sister? Well, it’s not even a little bit funny if you haven’t seen that mental breakdown of a clip, but that’s what I heard in my head while putting together this outfit. Wearing these Nike Pros basically gives you the same sensation as wearing, that’s right, no pants at all. So, obviously that’s a v good sensation. The only instance in which this becomes problematic is when you’re (I am) in an important meeting, constantly having to double check that I do, in fact, have pants on. Which can become quite stressful tbh.
