I Wear Leggings as Pants

Okay, okay. I know some of you have serious issues with this but it's true - I wear leggings as pants. I've read innumerable posts about the fashion sin but guess what? I do it anyway! I know how classless and carefree you must think I am but I really don't care. 

I don't feel like I need to explain myself but I have a blog so why not?

One of the few parts of my body that has remained in relatively good shape after college and pregnancy are my legs and I'm not ashamed to show them off. Plus, I have a baby and therefore spend minimal time getting ready each morning and leggings are comfortable and easy. Can I get an amen from my legging-wearing mamas?!?!


It's not that I have complete disregard for the leggings-as-pants naysayers. I follow my own version of legging-wearing guidelines:

  • For me if the bottoms are tight the top is not - I think this one's obvious but I've been to the mall - e-nuff said. 
  • In addition, the top has to be long enough to cover all the lady parts. I may wear leggings but I still try to keep it classy.
  • Keep the leggings dark and patternless - I might think my legs look good but Chevron doesn't look good on anyone's butt larger than a size 2 (and well, I'm not a size 2 so...) 
  • I only pair leggings with boots or flats - never heels. "Why?" you ask. Well because otherwise I tend to look like a call girl.

So to all you "legging aren't pants" ranters. To you I say, "I hear ya - I know you don't like it. Look away if you must but be warned I'll be stepping out in my leggings and I'm going to love every second of it. 

Be Blessed,
Brittany

  1. I'm with you. The only reason I rant that leggings aren't pants are when girls wear the skin tight/way too short shirts that leave them hanging out.

    But as long as the shirt is loose fitting and covering all the lady bits- then I'm in! Because duh- leggings are SO COMFY.

  5. Leggings are life-savers! I just always assumed that the issue with leggings as pants was because women (well, it's probably more likely to be high school students) wear the leggings with EVERYTHING showing. Cover it up and keep it classy!

    1. Just because you wear leggings doesn't mean you can't act like a lady. Everyone just needs to keep it classy!

    1. I'm glad you laughed, sometimes I think I'm funny and I'm the only one laughing at my jokes :) The family is safe and sound after the crazy snow. I'm sorry you didn't get any but at least you didn't have to wait 13+ hours in your car to get home or spend the night at home depot like so many people in ATL did - so sad.
