Jeggings


blazer: Walmart, tee: Simply Fashion, scarf: Kohl's,
pants: thrifted, boots: JCPenney, watch: Target

Joining in on the fun again with Megan and Nora for Inspiration Monday.  I love Inspiration Monday because it's been forcing me to think outside of the pieces I'd usually put together.  Today it also gave me the idea to wear these jeggings and this blazer together, which are both pieces I've never worn.  (I've had the blazer for at least 4 years and just took the tags off this morning...this makes me a little sad that it hasn't been loved all these years!)

I've always been a little skeptical of jeggings.  I found this pair with the tags still on them at my favorite thrift store.  I put them on over the weekend, but then changed at the last minute.  Today I paired them with a longer tee to balance the tight pants so that I would feel a little more work appropriate.  Plus is that there's no bunching at the knees when I wear these with boots like I get with some skinny jeans.  Minus is that the waist band makes me feel like I'm wearing maternity pants.  The verdict?  Officially approve of them and can only imagine that they'll get a ton of use!

  1. You look cute! Well done on the Julianne Hough challenge! I, too, was skeptical of jeggings at first, but ... they're pretty great. They're comfy (mostly), flattering, and go well with boots.
