I have a new love

And my husband dislikes it.

I found these while shopping in Target with my mother in law and she talked me into getting them. She wanted to buy me a couple of maternity things and she swore the leggings would be comfy.

Holy crap. She was right. I'm wearing them right now and I might not ever take them off.

Why hasn't this legging craze taken over? Or has it? I'm hardly a fashionista so what the hell do I know. But really these things are amazing. I tried them on and to quote dash-1 I was like "Oh snap!".

(Yes I taught him that in jest. Come on its hilarious to hear a four year old say that. And his father hates that too so it just fuels my fire.)

But back to the leggings, I modeled them for flyboy last night and perhaps hate is a strong word to use but he did tell me not to leave the house in them. And I'll try to oblige, but they are that comfy folks. Really I might contemplate leaving him for these pants. I'm hoping I can find a cute long shirt to wear with them and hide my ever expanding derriere and then he too will be on the bandwagon. Maybe he'll even want a pair.

Why is it whenever you find awesome pants or skirt and you are just in need of an equally awesome shirt you can't find it?

And who else out there is on the leggings bandwagon?

  1. I am SOOOO on the legging bandagon! Seriously! It's "in" right now, and I'm trying to get with it, more...

    Look at Target and Walmart, even - they sell nice (even materinty) sweater dresses, or even summer dresses, now, that look SUPER cute with leggings. And they aren't the same length as regular dresses - they're a little shorter, so they look SUPER cute. Seriously! Check it out!!

  4. Leggings actually have caught on, I thought. I've worn them with sweater dresses over winter time and they are sooo comfy. I also think they are quite flattering! Glad you like them! Target has them in all sorts of fun colors and prints!

  5. I haven't worn leggings in years. They are really popular right now. I fully intend to purchase a drawer full of them when I'm preggo!

  8. I love leggings! I wear them when I clean, I wear them with skirts, and I wear them with long shirts. hahah I wasn't trying to rhyme.


    When I'm preggo- I think I'll probably live in them!

  9. I haven't gotten on the bandwagon...probably because this pregnancy was mostly over the fall/winter. However they look comfy and cute!

  10. Me! Me! And I'm late to jump on the bandwagon! My youngest sister has been wearing them forever so they've been in style for a while now.

    I wear them underneath casual knit dresses with some flats or sandals. Tunics are good too. I've seen the college girls around campus here sporting them with regular short-ish shirts. I have to cover my butt though!

  14. Thanks for the opinion!

    And oh man, about the Duggar special...I literally wrote a post-it note and put it on the TV so we'd remember it. After watching the trailer I was like "WE NEED TO SEE THAT!" It was so weird and creepy. I love where the guy was like "Jesus didn't drink wine...that was grape juice." and was explaining why no one could dance. A wedding with no alcohol or dancing? AWESOME! No wonder they were dying to hump each other.

    I can't even IMAGINE how awkward it was.

  15. I love leggings! I wear them under my jeans and pants, and I've seen many people wear them w/skirts and dresses. Where I work, it gets pretty cold, so it's a nice extra layer to wear under jeans and thermals. In fact, I just bought myself another pair today!

  16. Hahah, they are in now. One of my best friends is obsessed with them. I'm a bit too self-conscious about wearing them though, so I've avoided them. I will wear tights though.. and yes, I do believer there is a difference in the two! :)

  17. Eek, I can't do leggings. They just scream, hello '80s! I'm too afraid bid hair will return next....

  18. I love them with a long shirt. Before I was a nurse I had to dress up for work every day and the leggings made such an easy and comfy outfit! Your Preggo, tell flyboy to deal, it's all about feeling good in what you wear darn it! Joe hates leggings and capris..two of my favorite things. He told me he wouldn't let me in the house if I ever came home wearing them LOL.

  19. I can't get into the leggings. They were all the rage when I was a teen, and I just can't get past it! And I am tall with long legs, and materials were not what they are now, and I had constant crotch-droop. NOT attractive! :D Of course now, if I wore them, I would look ridiculous! :D

  21. I love my leggings! So comfy! But *R* loves when I wear them...perhaps a little too much...TMI?

  22. Definitely a go-to item when you're pregnant!

  23. I haven't experienced the leggings sensation yet but if they're comfortable, why not? There are definitely a lot of long shirts out there now so I'm sure you'll find cute outfits to put together.

  24. I am noticing Tunics are making a really big comeback too! I think leggings would go great with the right Tunic. My fear is that bike shorts will come back AAAHHHH!! God, please, NO! Remember those things???? The worst is when a Guy wears them GAG!! He might as well have a big sign taped to his crotch saying..."Check out my package!" I am still in recovery therapy over the bike shorts! LOL!
