Leggings Intervention

The other day on Twitter there was a lot of talk about leggings.

It was during that conversation about leggings that I made a startling revelation.

I have been wearing leggings for several years now and apparently they haven't been in style.

I was warned by a few people younger than me that the leggings I was wearing were not in style but I simply dismissed their warnings.

I have mentioned several times on the ole blog that I am challenged when it comes to fashion or anything halfway relating to fashion, so it should come as no surprise that I was very out of style.

And I am thankful for my blog/twitter friends who double as my "fashion consultants".

But the leggings are not necessarily the problem.

The problem is the amount that I wear the leggings.

I need a Leggings Intervention.

I think leggings are one of the most comfortable pieces of clothing.

And when I wear them to work paired with a large shirt (to cover the behind) and flats, it is as if I am wearing a night gown and house shoes to work.

And nothing is better than that.

Even it if it means being out style.

I have started incorporating leggings into my weekly outfits more often than whats deemed appropriate.

I'm on day 3 of leggings so far this week.

I need an intervention. Quick.

And I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I got my leggings at Target about two years ago for $5.

Perhaps its time to invest in some new ones?

Here's my outfit today, with my $5 leggings.

I will bad sad when leggings go back out of style, however, judging from my history, I will probably still continue to wear them.

Because what is better than wearing a night gown to work? Nothing.

If leggings are wrong than I don't want to be right.

Man if your outfit needs fashion help I'd be embarrassed to put a pic of me anywhere! I think that outfit looks great and the leggings are cute. And if you like them then what does it matter?

Plus, your outfit is super cute!

I think you look great in the leggings! I wouldn't worry about it!

THE Stephanie said...

Your outfit look super trendy to me. I think you should stick with "not being right!" LOL

You look way cute!! :)

Alex and Jill said...

I *heart* leggings! Keep wearing them. :)

Leggings are out of style?! Where have I been? I love them. I wear them to work the same way you mentioned (with flats and a long top) I also wear them out with friends.

Lauren said...

I think you look fantastic! I'm just always too chicken to try the leggings trend, but you pull it off just wonderfully!

Patience said...

I love your outfit and I love leggings. This is my first year wearing them, but they are heaven.

PinkSass said...

I'm not a big fan of leggings but I love your outfit. And girl you are tiny!

Becca said...

oh i always think of you as fashionable! :-) I love your outfit!

Rachel Antone said...

First, WHY IN THE HECK are you doing some work-out program?? You are so thin!
Second, I would KILL for some long skinny legs...so that I could pull of leggings. Unfortunately, they don't make ANY leggings that are flattering on short, stumpy legs like mine. Boo.

sarah said...

Leggings aren't in style anymore?! Oh well, they are still super comfy and really cute.

And I love your outfit!

Lauren Kelly said...

CUTE outfit. I just bought my first pair of leggings a few weeks ago, and I'm in love!!!!

So comfortable and hope they never go out of style, haha!!

Trina said...

Girl you act like you have no style. You ALWAYS look cute in every pic you put on your blog.

The outfit with the $5 leggings is adorable. I would totally wear it.

PS I wear leggings when I'm bloated or have too much water weight to be comfy in my normal dress pants. Which happens to be more often than I care for these days :)

You look great! Wear what you like. If you start wearing an actual nightgown to work, that would be a problem. :)

wow - you look super skinny!! I think now that I am fat and pregnant I am noticing how little people are! (and a little jealous of that fact! :))

I have not bought any leggings - we can't wear them at my work but I have been trying to get brave enough to try them. I will check for $5.00 Target ones!

Ams said...

Gorgeous! I hate "styles" because really... who decides WHAT is in style??
I am wearing an outfit very similar to what you are wearing right now - out tonight :) And I can't wait. Leggings lovely!

Jamie said...

Someone I know had tweeted that she loves the "NEW" style of leggings and tunics, to which I was confused because leggings aren't very new to me. I've been wearing them for years also. AND LOVE THEM. I wear them too much as well.

I think they are def. in style now. I think it's not even a question anymore if they are in style or out. They are more like a staple now, like, black heels -- you have to own a pair.

Suzette said...

You look absolutely adorable! I'm way out of style.. lol.. Keep doing what's wrong and you'll look great! :)

*And oh how I wish I was as skinny as you! ;p

Brown Eyed Girl said...

Umm, you do NOT look like you are wearing a night gown and house shoes!! You look fabulous in your $5 leggings!! Love your outfit. And, I bought my leggings at Target too. I will have to say that mine were 9.99 instead of 5. Must be inflation over the last 5 years??? :)

holy cow, you always look so cute! don't know anything about style... girl! i don't think so, you look adorable. and you are so tiny! i've always been weary about wearing leggings, but I do love some yoga pants, so leggings are the more styish version of that, right? I'm trying to convince myself it's ok for me to try them!! where is the dress from? and the shoes? love them both! ok, and the belt? =)

Rachel H. said...

I don't think you need an intervention at all...I think you look great, and if those are five dollar leggings, then I need to go get some!!

Classy Fab Sarah said...

Not gonna lie - you look SO gorgeous in that picture... leggings and all.

Sweet Simplicity said...

My fave leggings are from Target.
You look SUPER skinny!

Faith said...

Girlfriend, you are rockin that look! So cute!!!

The Pink Owl said...

I love your outfit, leggings look perfect on you! I just blogged about them yesterday, and I, too, am obsessed!

I've found some really great ones at Ross, TJ Maxx and Marshall's lately. The problem I have is getting saggy knees after a few hours. I think my bony knees are the problem :(

I found some really cute footless tights at Target, but haven't worn them yet. I'm hoping they won't be too sheer.

Hollie said...

i still wear leggings, too. a teenage friend of my sister's told her that they wear no longer in style the other day, but we're not teenagers anymore, so they can still be in style for us! i'll prob continue to wear them, until mine get those little balls on them from wearing them too much. and then i'll just go buy more!

RN Mama said...

First of all, your outfit is totally dead sexy! Embrace your leggings, they look great on you! I feel like I'm too short for leggings, they just don't seem to look right. Consider your self stylishly lucky!
