Jeggings? Jeggings. JEGGINGS!!!

The title of my post pretty much sums up how my feelings about Jeggings have progressed. At first I was totally turned off, even laughing at them. Then I was intrigued by them. My sister sells Avon and I spotted a classy looking dark washed pair in Decembers catalog. I kept coming back to them envisioning all the possibilities. I figured, what the heck, I'm going to order these! So I did...and I LOVE them!



I have skinny legs and a more average sized waste. When I buy jeans to fit my waste they are always big in the legs and butt. And when I buy a pair that fits in the legs/butt they are always uncomfortably tight in the waste. With the fabulous jeggings there is no such problem. The legs were nice and tight (the way I like them when I'm wearing boots over top) and the waste was elastic so it fit perfectly. And to top that off...they are extremely comfortable! Who would have thought...JEGGINGS! I think I will be needing to order a pair (or 6) more.

So what do you think of Jeggings? Like them, hate them, or unsure?

I put Pie in them all the time. She loves tham and can move around easily, and I love them because they're so comfy for her!

I've always been unsure about them, but you make them look super cute! I have the opposite shape as you-- my waist is small and my hips and legs and butt are quite a bit larger, so if I find jeans that fit my bottom half, they're a mile too big in the waist. Maybe jeggings are the solution?! lol

I love jeggings. my boyfriend convinced me to buy two pairs when we were back-to-school shopping in august and they are my favorite. I dont like real jeans, but these are awesome.

my step sister just bought a pair, i took one look at her and said " please tell me those aren't jegging!" but they were and you know what they looked pretty good on me so i have to say im down with jeggings!

I thought I hated them.
Then I gave up trying to find a pair of skinny jeans to fit my bubble booty and regular waist.
I bought a pair of jeggings and I dig'em.

Hmmmm...you've got me thinking here. I love them on you of course, but I'm not sure I'd love them on me. Maybe I'll go try some on and if I like them, use one of my christmas gift cards. I'll keep you posted. :)

I love them. I am built like one of those dipping bird you put on the counter and watch swing back and forth into a cup. You know, the ones with skinny legs, no butt and all belly. With jeggings I can wear a baggy top and my legs look so skinny that others think that I am too! ;)

I have the opposite problem-- pants fit me big in the waist and tight on butt and thighs! I love jeggings, though! I have a pair!

Personally, I don't mind them, but they do not work for everyone. You, however, look fantastic!! Super cute outfit. I found you on IFB, and you have a really great blog. :)

Jeggings are fab, only problem i see with them is that they can be reluctant to stay up. Maybe i need braces? Hehe
