Long Layers for Leggings

I love leggings. I hope they never go out of style, but I know they will...and probably soon, too. I don't know why people don't like them so much...they're comfortable and cute. At least they are to me. I think, perhaps, that my love for leggings stems from my many years spent figure skating...in basically...leggings. Whatever the case, I wear them every opportunity I have. I've even worn them to work, but only because we have a very relaxed dress code at my consulting office. We can wear flip flops and shorts! Anywho, I think leggings can look super cute as long as they're worn right and the key is layers!

I just bought this "grandpa" sweater from the Gap. It's so comfortable! It comes in gray, navy and off-white. It's especially great if you like to layer, which I do because I'm always cold! I wore it to scope out a wedding fair in town today with one of my bridesmaids. If you're engaged or just getting ready early for your wedding, I highly recommend going to one of these events. Heck, if you know someone who's getting married, see if you can go with them...you will get all the cake samples you can eat! Oh, and you learn some useful information about local vendors, too.

Leggings: American Apparel
Boots: Banana Republic

I think that some people don't like leggings because it doesn't look right on their legs...
Also when other people wear leggings but it doesn't look right (and yet they're wearing it because it's "in") it looks really weird/wrong...

i wish i had the legs for leggings =p

Thanks Wendy!

Ahh...yes, I see what you mean Lindsay, and I certainly understand. There are things that I don't wear b/c they just don't look right on me. I more meant the people who just pick on other people for wearing them for no good reason. Those mean girls! lol

Where do you work, LOL?!? I'd love to go into my office and be able to sport casual clothes. Unfortunately, when I go into my consulting office, everyone is dressed up more than they are on client site. I'd rather throw on flip flops than a suit anyday.

Great outfit! I love leggings and will wear them even if they are go out of style. Like you said, as long as the outfit is appropriate, its all good. I now consider them as a basic piece in a wardrobe. I think some folks have a bad impression of them due to some of the fashion faux pas from the 1980's trends. I only wear my leggings with tunics or under dresses.

I work at a very small consulting office, so that probably helps with the dress code. That and my bosses are cool. :) Your co-workers dress up more when off-site? Ouch...that stinks!

Amethyst, oh yea, scary 80's leggings...haha. Sounds like you're working yours right!

Really cute! I like leggings but they aren't for everyone. some girls just look weird (wrong length, bad legs, etc). I also do not like when girls wear them as pants and you can see everything a little too tight (if you know what I mean).

You look good though- I love the boots and sweater.

I really like how the leggings look with the boots and the layering.
I think that leggings just have to be worn correctly, and not with Crocs and or a tank top.(Yes, I did see someone wearing that, but I am in Vermont, not a big fashion hub!)

I looooooooooove leggings too! On my vacation I wore them almost every day, for some elegant cover-up in those asian countries...

You're getting married!!! Yay!!!
