Black & Gray

by - Monday, October 01, 2012

Today's look is a departure from the norm. I own a pair of leggings, bought during my feeling-like-trying-new-things phase. It hasn't seen the outside of my closet much, so I figured it's time to remedy that before it gets too cold.

I think the root of my issues with leggings is that I never feel "covered up" enough. Is my bottom hanging out? Is the material too thin? But oh, are they comfortable. Paired with a long tee and the addition of a boyfriend blazer for that extra longer layer, I left the house without the usual leggings worries.

Happy Monday, everyone!

  1. Love this look! So comfy. :) I always go by the "booty" rule with leggings - if the booty is covered (i.e. long shirt just like you did!), you're covered up enough.


  2. I love this look so much, Cee! One of my favorites on you! I just ordered a pair of leggings last night from J. Crew during their 25% off promotion. My husband stocked up on shirts, so I added the leggings in so we could get the promo.

  3. Great look! If I could, I would wear leggings all the time because they're so comfy. lol I always have the rule of covering my booty if I'm wearing leggings too.. if it's covered, you're good to go. :)

  4. I have a fear of wearing leggings as well. I feel so exposed! But I love this look here, maybe I'll try out a variation of it :)

  5. I love leggings! I live in the ones from Target.. only $8 a pair. :)

  6. Looks so lovely & chic!

    I'm not comfortable with leggings... never felt covered enough. I used to wear it with dress (I guess Japanese still do - my SO is so against it) like I wore them as tights, I cannot get over that idea yet!

  7. You look lovely! I always wear leggings with tunics, so i dont have to worry about my booty :)

  8. this is a great look! i have yet to try leggings - you may have just given me more courage! xox P

  9. I'm going to have to get a pair of leggings now. You make them look so chic!

  10. so beautiful!!!!love this look

  11. I once bought a pair and, being a woman of a certain age, thought, "I'll never wear these even if my bootie WAS covered up!" Just not my style; I'm old-fashioned that way, I guess. But, you can pull it off and with such flair. You look so stylish!


    1. Lol! Love your way with words, Sonia :) Do you still have that pair of leggings lying around? I say dig it out and give it another go!

  12. You know what, I actually don't even have leggings! My issue is always length and they are too baggy LOL! Are these a recent H&M buy?

    1. No, this pair is from last year. But I think their basics (tees, bras, tights, leggings, etc) always come back in stock during the season, so keep your eyes out! Mine is just a tiny bit short on me, so I think they'd fit you nicely :)

  13. When I was pregnant, Leggings and I were best friends. We did everything together for that 9 months!!! :D I love wearing it with a short dress but I still don't get it when ppl wear them with a reg shirt and you can see everything hehe


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
