This week it's all about leggings. I'm pretty sure I adopted leggings as pants before it was mainstream. Going against all my mother's wishes, I just had to start wearing leggings all the time. They're so comfortable, so versatile, and the best thing to happen to fashion in a very long time.
With the rise of athleisure, leggings are becoming a true staple in the fashion world. Every brand has a few pairs in their arsenal and I'd bet that all of you reading this right now have at least one pair in your wardrobe.
I abandoned regular jeans a long time ago and switched over the jeggings and nowadays, those aren't even good enough for me. I want my stretchy leggings day and night; at work, at the bar, or at the gym.
Now, don't get me wrong, I have different kinds of leggings for different activities. I have shiny, faux leather leggings for work/night play, my workout leggings for the gym or lounging days in the house, and then my everyday leggings that I wear running errands or to work on a more casual day.
I get all of my leggings from American Eagle because I've found that they fit the best, weren't too tight, weren't see through, and are super comfortable. I've never strayed from them, with the exception of two pairs of Victoria Secrets leggings.
Well, that is until now.
I was on the Kate Spade website browsing my heart away, as I usually do on a daily basis, and I saw that some of the clothing from Kate Spade x Beyond Yoga were on sale. I had an coupon code and decided to take a risk and purchase the high waisted leggings.
I am so thrilled that I did.
I opted for the classic black leggings (of course) and they have a little bow detail on the back of the ankle that adds something fun & flirty without being too over the top.
These are hands down the most comfortable leggings ever. They're high waisted which makes them slimming and it just feels like everything is kept sucked in. They're super soft material but also don't look frumpy as some comfortable leggings can. They hide everything, and can really pull a look together because of side panel details.
Now, I will say that these were a pretty penny; even though they were on sale and I had a 15% off coupon code, they were still a lot -- more than I've ever paid for a piece of clothing. But, in my mind they were 100% worth it.
I buy handbags, makeup, and accessories on a whim but I do not buy clothes that way. I am frugal when it comes to buying myself a pair of jeans or a shirt; I don't think I've ever spent more than $50 on one item, if that much.
I think that I should start changing my mindset on that because yes, I'll have my handbags & accessories for a while but clothes are what makes the outfit, right?
I saw these leggings as an investment because I could use a pair of good, high quality leggings (not that American Eagle aren't but there is a huge difference) and I'm so happy I took that leap of faith.
I've never purchased any Beyond Yoga or Kate Spade clothing but I think this has just opened a new door for me.
Take a look at some of the other must haves from the collection. Kate Spade just released their new arrivals a few weeks ago and I've been LUSTING after all of this activewear.
