    Could you do a post on how to wear leggings? I like them but never know exactly what to pair them with, or if I even have right body shape for them. Thanks! 🙂

    Love it! It looks comfy but still put together.

    I haven't jumped on the leggings train yet. I'm nervous.

    I'm still in the LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS camp. How did they become pants again?

    I am almost alright with the 90's thing when they were different colors and the sweaters or shirts always came to at least midthigh.

    Almost.

      I agree Victoria! I teach high school, and tell students daily that LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS!! But, it looks like I'm in the minority on this one. I guess if the leggings are thick enough, it would be ok. But, the ones I see….lets just say they leave nothing to the imagination when you bend over or squat. :-/

      Totally agree with you both! I personally think it's a bit odd to where pants so tight that people can see the indention at the bottom of your butt/top of thigh. ummm…. sorry but I don't want anyone seeing every little rumple on me, and I'm thin! I think it's ok for lounging around the house and going to get the mail… but that's about it 🙂

    It looks great on you but I, too have the same thing as some other readers.
    I am not very sure on how to use leggings, I tend to want to hide my fanny a bit more…because some leggings I have bought are somewhat transparent.
