Falling For It
After reading this post on Wardrobe Oxygen, I decided to jump on the jeggings bandwagon! I never thought I’d write that on my blog, and they shall henceforth be known as denim leggings, but whatever you want to call them, I think this look will become a fall staple of mine. I must disclose that this photograph is entirely staged and was taken while the boys were napping on a very hot Sunday afternoon recently. Ryan and I were trying out our new camera and tripod, so I appear a bit hesitant while waiting to see if the timer would work. Immediately afterward, I changed back into comfy shorts and a tee, but I am excited to wear this outfit in the coming months. Like November and December.
I am incredibly impressed with these denim leggings, which are the same brand and style that Alison wears in her post. Made by Karen Kane, the leggings feature a wide elastic band at the waist that really helps to smooth everything out and avoid that “muffin-top” look so common among mothers. I am truly pear-shaped and am smaller through my shoulders and torso than my hips, so I balanced the fitted leggings with a loose top, bought from Anthropologie several years ago, a very old Banana Republic shrug, and two charm necklaces also purchased at Anthropologie in years past. My shoes were a fun find from Ross, but I’m planning to update the look with boots once the weather turns cool, whenever that might be.
I’m excited to try this new look and I can’t believe I waited this long to buy a pair of
jeggings denim leggings! Have you tried anything new or different lately?
