When Yummie Tummie approached me to talk about style for this post, I laughed, OH HOW I LAUGHED. Till tears crept out of the edges of my eyelids and I had to sop them up with the edges of my new Yummie Tummie leggins that they had graciously provided for me to show you how I might wear them.
See, I am not very fashion-forward. I mean, I try. I look, enjoy what people do and emulate it – blah blah – but I don’t think anyone, ever, got any style tips from me.
But here goes.
Because, even though I resisted the comeback of leggins (leggings? legg-ins? – See? I am clearly unqualified to write this post), when I gave in, I remembered how comfortable they are.
But the flip side to that coin is, also feeling well – exposed – when you are not – well, Kate Moss size, and I am – well, NOT.
This is where Heather Thomson from Yummie Tummie comes in. While she *is* Kate Moss size – although maybe about 2 feet taller, she understands that we ALL want a little unsurgical nipping and tucking now and again. I definitely feel smoother and more in control of the jiggles with these leggings.
As far as the styles I could show you? Very. little. control. Especially when Bryan, Declan and I started doing a “photoshoot” of our ideas.
Started out simple enough with my go-to leggings look. I have a long shirt-dress-thing (the official term) that is perfect for them and I will dress it up with a scarf and silly shoes.
I also have felt more comfortable in these leggings to go a little shorter than normal with the tops, and then wear them with a jean jacket. By the way – are Converse in or out? I don’t actually care. I will still wear them – just wondering.
This is when the boys started started really getting annoyed with me – but the point being – this is a little print dress that I wear by itself in the summer and can stretch in to the Fall and Winter when I pull leggings underneath them.
ALSO! Did you know that leggings also double for preppy over the shoulder sweaters? Great for pretending to be a fraternity dude. That was Bryan’s suggestion.
And then DECLAN thought it would be great to CARRY the leggings around my WAIST, just in case I needed a second pair.
And finally, we ALL think leggings piled up high will give Erykah Badu a run for her money any day of the week.
Actually that last one didn’t work so well, because I have the shiny leggings from Yummie Tummie so they kept slipping off my head, but you get the idea.
Am I a style maven yet???
Are national news programs now going to have me on for my awesome style advice???
Anyway, how do YOU like to wear leggins, leggings, leg-ins – whatever they are called?
