are you brave enough for "the jeggings?"
i know, i was terrified at first.
true story: a year ago a much younger, cooler friend of mine told me i should really try out skinny jeans. i laughed at her and asked if she'd seen my mid-section lately. i was certain i would look like a rolled sausage in skinny jeans. but i decided to at least try them out, and i was completely surprised by the result!
a year later (and no, i have not lost 20 lbs since then) i own more skinnies than anything else!
i mean, let's get real here. the name? well, it's a little revolting.
brings to mind "skort" of the 90's. or "ligers".
can any good come from hybridized words?
and really? conan o'brien didn't do jeggings any favors
sorry if i've ruined your appetite for the day. had to be done.
even april tried to convince me at the queen bee market that jeggings were amazing.
i wasn't buying it.
over christmas, my anthropologie shopping, always-looks-amazing sister in law was wearing super cute skinnies. when i asked her where they were from, she told me anthro (no suprise). but then she said "i love jeggings! they're so comfy!" and i was shocked.
well, you all know what happened. i blew my entire gift card that hubs gave me for christmas on a pair jeggings because when i tried them on, they were magic.
like yoga pants, but somehow completely fashionable!
it's a miracle!
aaaand... the spendy ones were perfect because they have a higher rise to cover my not-a-baby- bump. who could ask for anything more?!? (p.s. you can find a great pair at target too, so no worries!)
someday i may look back on this trend and ask "what was i thinking?!?" but for now... comfy pants!!
what say you?
are you a *jegger?
|making my "so they're a little tight" face|
*term "jegger" totally made up by me. feel free to spread it like wildfire. it's all kinds of awesome.
don't forget about the winner of the funky vintage kitchen giveaway!
congrats sarah! and thank you to fellow jegger, april!
