Leggings + Jeans= Love

One of my fashion pet peeves is when your jeans get all messy and slouchy when you tuck them into your boots.

Argh, that just grinds my gears. And with two pairs of boots in constent rotation for the winter months, I was havin' none of this.

My friend Mandy had shown me a pair of leggings she bought a couple months back that looked like jeans. I was a little skeptical, but as I was browsing through Macy's yesterday I saw a pair. What the hell, I'll try them on.

I. love. them. Like luuurrrvvvvv them. These things are so comfortable and they tuck right into your boots!!

They look awesome with my new slouchy boots:

Sweater: Macy's
T-shirt: Old Navy
Boots: Steve Madden (Christmas present!)
Necklace: vintage Kohl's


As well as my old brown leather boots:

Sweater: H&M
Top: Forever 21
Tank: The Limited
Necklace: American Eagle
Boots: Daisy Fuentes for Kohl's (literally like 5 years ago)


Or if I'm feelin' a little sassier, I could rock these for a night out with some heels:


Top: H&M
Tank: The Limited
Clutch: yard sale find
Heels: Target

I was so excited when I got them I texted Mandy to tell her. And you'll never guess what she told me these things are called.

Wait for it... Wait for iiittt...

Jeggings.

!!!!!!

Serendipitous.

Always & Forever,
ME

Ahhh I just bought two pairs of jeggings from H&M and I lOVE them!!!! One pair is actually black so I guess they are bleggings? I never thought I'd jump on that bandwagon but seriously those things rule. Rock on!!!

Now we can all have our own JEGgings!!

I would have totally defriended you for life had you said that you like the boots in that first photo. they are nauseating.

For some reason my monitor at the office shows images on blogspot really dark. I will have another look at them when I get home. I am sure they look fabulous.

I have that same problem with jeans and boots! They never look neat and tucked in. I think it's because I am short. Love the outfits!
