a week of leggings. sequins.

gah...the dreaded legging. you either love them or hate them. i've seen enough faux pas to make me want to stay away from them...from too-tight-it-shows-too-much to the so-faded-and-thin-it-shows-evvrything-in-bright-daylight to the it-just-shows-to-darn-much. i mean, you get the point. but there's an occasion for everything, and sometimes you want the comfort and ease of a simple pair of leggings. so when choosing a pair, i try to look for ones with patterns and prints, texture, or some detail that makes them appear thicker, and i always, always try to cover a portion [if not all] of my derriere. this week i'm busting out these tricky bottoms that rarely get worn. i bought this sequined pair for a christmas party a couple years ago...dressed them down here with just an oversized tee and simple heels.

are you comfortable wearing leggings? how do you wear yours?

  1. I actually own a couple of pair of leggings...but only really wear them at home for hubby. These look great on you and I can imagine wearing them out for a night on the town.

  2. You totally rock these leggings! I think only people with thin legs should wear them...and since I'm not much of a fan of my calves...I stay far away.

  6. So long as the top/dress covers your crotch it's fine by me, if not then...its a no-no if you ask me! So sick of seeing misworn leggings!
    You look awesome in these sequin ones. Great job x

  12. I totally agree, but if they are worn properly, they can look good. And in your case, they look amazing! Your wore them perfectly!

  14. Those leggings are truly amazing, so awesome!

  15. Wow, those are pretty amazing!!!

  16. Yup, I concur on all counts. What I REALLLLLY hate are leggings with a top that is too short. Come ON - wear something longer on top so we don't see your ladybits. And I have waffled for the last year or two on sequin leggings. I mean, I love them, but then I think, how much wear will I REALLY get out of them? But then I see them, and I'm all, Come ON, woman - they were like $24 at F21 - just GET a pair already. And then I'm all Rawr! Grrrrr! Arrrggghhhh!!! So you can see my dilemma...

  18. the post photos are even better than insta photo. Love your top and the words are so chic.
    your glasses and my absolutely fave here - the outfit would have lost so much if you didn't wear it and the glasses look lovely your face on.

  19. You are hilarious! But I do agree on how people wear their leggings can be some what ridiculous. Yours however fits perfect + sequins?! Love it! I love leggings because they are so comfy! I bought these velveteen ones from Forever or H&M a few seasons back and wore them out w/ mostly tunics.

  20. Oh those leggings are awesome! I love leggings but I agree wear something with them long enough to cover the bum. I HATE when ladies wear them as pants, I don't care how skinny you are, leggings are not pants! Love how you styled these! Perfect!

  21. your legs look long and lean. love the shirt pairing... you look gorgeous!

  27. Seriously, only you could rock sequined leggings and make them look fabulous! My only rule when it comes to leggings are that they have to cover the booty, lol!

    Today at the library, this lady had on a pair of leggings that were so tight they were just awful. The worst part was they were low rise AND you could see right through them.

  30. love it! i wear leggings, usually just black because i'm afraid that if i wear the printed ones it won't look like what it's supposed to look like? like if i attempted to wear an animal print one it might look like an overweight cheetah or pregnant zebra? i have to do more research on my theory!

  31. love your fun mix of animal prints, the leopard pants are fantastic :)
    would you like to follow each other?

  33. I love leggings, but never NEVER wear them as jeans. The long top, dress, skirt or tunic is the ONLY way to wear them. But I'm loving your sequins leggings. STUNNING!
