...jegga-what?

My dear friend Mai and I have been debating the boots + leggings trend for months. We both wanted in, but it was completely outside our fashion realm. Thankfully, we share an office, so whittling away hours discussing our fitting room mishaps didn't costs either of us (or our employer) much personal time. After the massive Midwest blizzard last weekend, we both bought boots. Neither pair of boots was particularly fitting for a snowstorm, but hey.

And then...on Friday she totally one-upped me and bought jeggings. We'd both mocked jeggings for weeks, as the concept is quite scary. And we'd seen them done so wrong so many times. But ultimately, they were the only thing that could solve the bunchy boot dilemma. She looked uber foxy. Granted, she's slimmer and much prettier than I...but I just had to do it, too.

(Please forgive my puffy face and ultra lame smile. I'm sick.)

Overall, I kind of like them but still feel a smidge unsure. Wearing an ultra long top is most necessary, though, as my rump isn't at all flattered in jeggings. I purchased this sweater about a month ago from Old Navy, and it felt weekend-casual with boots and my new bottoms. My sis and I are going out for dinner tonight, and I've sworn her to honesty: If my new jeggalicious look isn't that luscious...it is her job to cautiously tell me.

In concluson: Size 10 women everywhere...jegs it up! (Just keep your booty covered.)

(Sidenote: Thanks for all your lipstick suggestions! I'm feeling much less scared about selecting a tube now that I have your guidance. Ilona had a stellar idea: Hit the department store for a consult before the airport... they can match my outfit! Genius. I'll let you all know what I choose.)

  4. I am 8 months pregnant and not a size 10 but this entire pregnancy my go to outfit has been jeggings and leggings with cotton dresses and shirt dresses. Comfort and style all in one. Totally agree though, anyone doing this trend the top does need to be long enough to cover the rump other than that I think just about anyone looks cute in this style (and you look adorable sick and all!)

  5. I love it! I have to admit that I saw some jeggings at the store the other day and after figuring out what the hell jeggings were, I really wanted a pair. I hope people are still wearing them in the spring after I have my baby and can fit in them - they look so comfortable. And you look amazing :)

  7. I think they look quite good on you! I could never do it, and do get a kick out of seeing people who have it all so wrong but I think your right cover the booty and they don't look bad at all.

  8. I think you look adorable! The whole outfit really suits you. And jeggings can look great when done right.

    I'm with you on covering the butt. Unless you are super skinny and model tall it doesn't look right (ahah or maybe jealousy because I'm small)

    And I think it's sweet that the ornament is hanging from a cabinet. I take that as a compliment :) xx

  9. You are adorable...and super duper cute in those jeggings! I broke out of my comfort zone recently and bought slim jeans - that's about as tight fitting as I can go right now.

  15. I'm so happy to see someone is is much younger, hipper and prettier than me contemplate the whole leggings issue. I love the look- especially with your sweater wrap but I'm still not sure that it would look good on me.
    BTW- are those jeggings or leggings or skinny jeans? I'm confused.

  17. I will be rockin' jeggings as soon as I get them from my MIL for Christmas. I can't wait.

    You make them look good!

  18. I too have cautiously started trying to rock the leggings/jeggings with boots look. I still feel super-exposed, but am trying to get over it. I'm told I somehow pull it off :)
