To Break A Rule

Today, I did something I swore I'd NEVER do.

I wore leggings as pants.
People, we were just centimeters away from inappropriate for most of the day.

Everything that you see in this picture is my attempt at smoke and mirrors to
draw your attention away from my crotch.

Chambray Shirt: Thrifted; Pink Cardigan: Old Navy
The aforementioned leggings worn as pants: Target
Leopard Flats: el cheapo
Scarf: ABC Trading Co.

You're all looking at my crotch now, aren't you?

You are so funny! My mom just sent me an article the other day about how "leggings are not pants" and if you wear them your butt should not show, even when you bend over. I have to admit, sometimes I break the rule. But usually my shirt or dress is long enough.

Either way, you look cute. Oh and what is your take on these stirrup leggings coming back? I think they should only be worn with boots because they are atrocious, but some people are wearing them with regular shoes...

The problem is that leggings are just so comfortable. I've taken to wearing them when traveling in the car for long stretches. The comfort just can't be beat.

I love the pink/blue/green combo. A little bit of a country club feel, in a good way.

I have the same problem except with the back. I always feel like my butt is just peeking out and making the whole thing inappropriate.
You look great though. I love all the color.

such a great outfit, leggings are so fun in the fall. Where in the south do you live? I lived in Charleston for 6 years.

This is hilarious. At least your aware so it's okay to break a rule at least once. My rule on leggings is cover the bum which in turn covers the crotch.

P.S. - are those el cheapo flats from Target?

Ahhh hahaha! That's hilarious, I wasn't looking at your crotch. You're shirt looks long enough to cover the necessities though. Love the leopard flats.. so jealous!

That is my exact concern with leggings!!! Although I love them and could care less if my butt is visible, it's the awkward crotch that make me uncomfortable.

At least my eye wasn't drawn to your crotch until you mentioned it!

Jean said...
