Floral Leggings

1.15.2014

I've become leggings obsessed. It is actually becoming a serious problem. So much to the point where I went to get dressed for a date the other night and put on jeans, then I turned to Adam and said, "I feel constricted." Since when are jeans constricting!? Jeans are supposed to be the clothing item you look forward to wearing on the weekend after skirts and heels all week. Right? Right. Well... I guess not anymore. Because in jeans I can look casual and work in the yard and whatever. But in leggings I can look casual (or like I didn't care to get ready) and work in the yard and do the splits and go to a dance class and really do whatever moving I want.

Leggings: Agnes and Dora \\ Top: SexyModest \\ Cardigan: Cotton On \\ Boots: JCPenny
Necklace: Bluebird Bridal \\ Bracelet: Color By Amber

So there you have it. At least my leggings are cute? In fact, the other day someone complimented my "cute floral jeans" so maybe they are good enough to be jeans? Nope. Not so much. So I am not making it a goal, after many discussions with my husband and my brother to wear pants more. Because leggings aren't pants. They are leggings. But jeans, khakis, color, or white pants are pants. And pants are more normal every day. Right? And feel free to tell me I am wrong or tell me I am crazy. Because I am pretty sure I already knew that. Where do you stand on the pants vs leggings?

Giiirl, I've been feeling super constricted in my jeans lately too! I think it's my holiday weight. Hahaha! Your leggings are super cute!

Hot stuff!! And I think leggings can act as pants when wearing a longer sweater/top and when the leggings are thick enough.

i wear leggings every day. not a joke.
but i always make sure that my bum is covered, so i'm always wearing long shirts or sweaters with them so its not weird. i also found some super thick leggings that i love that are thicker then jeggings so ya.
and i love jeans i just haven't found any that i love yet, so until then i'm sticking with my leggings.

Leggings totally count as pants, just make sure you get the ones that are opaque in the butt (and everywhere else). There's nothing worse than thinking you've got yourself covered with leggings, when in fact you're wearing footless tights. Yikes!

On the flip side, leggings are stretchy pants, so if you gain or lose weight, you don't notice as fast as when you put on your jeans and can't do them up. oops ;) (this may or may not have happened to me :p )

I have to wear all black every day, so I pretty much wear leggings non stop. I love them. But I definitely find it hard to wear jeans. Although, I only own one pair because I have never liked jeans. I prefer skirts and dresses :) You look so cute!

Leggings>pants all day! and I love this outfit, especially the leggings and the sweater. I agree with one of the people above, I wear either a long shirt or short dress. No one will ever convince me that leggings aren't pants. Lol
