Gettin Jegging with It- a Must Have for Fall!

Ok first I have to make fun of myself for titling this post "must have." I always laugh at magazine articles that tell me what I "must have," because A) they are not buying it for me and B) it's super convenient for them to profit off of my insatiable desire to be cutting edge. Lest I lose you, I'll hop off of my soapbox since, let's face it, I am hardly the poster child for anti-consumerism. So, I'm resigned to using the phrase "must have" because, seriously you have to have these items. ;)

Now I have been on a fashion fast of sorts (now my earlier rant is making sense huh?), trying to avoid the mall, stores, and fashion magazines. Why, you ask? Another post for another time. The only reason I even mention it is as a disclaimer that I might miss something over the next few "must have" posts. Ok now on to more fun topics. My first fave for fall is....

jeggings, denim leggings, jean leggings or whatever you'd like to call them. I have tried on a pair of these at Forever 21, have a pair in my old navy cart as I type, and own an awesome INC pair and I love them. I love the look of skinny jeans but the comfort of leggings. I love that they don't leave that nasty gap at my waist that jeans often do if you have a booty. I love that you can tuck them into uggswithout them bunching up around your ankles and making you so uncomfortable that it almost doesn't matter how stinkin cute you look! Here are a few pairs I've fallen in love with. I hope you do too...


These "Rock star super skinny denim leggings" are from Old Navy. That's Right, Old Navy. For a mere $39.50 you can be in style and comfortable. The thing I love best about these is that they apparently flatter curves. I know many women who have curves and are afraid to wear skinny jeans as a result. While my knowledge of this particular pair of jeans isn't first hand, if you take the time to read the reviews, you'll notice an amazing trend. Reviewers are exuberantly stating that curvy girls can wear skinny jeans too, as noted by these review titles: "Curvy girls will love these," and "Yes curvy girls! You CAN wear jeggings!" The reviews are so convincing ("Literally my favorite article of clothing ever!") that I can't wait to get mine and am fighting the urge to get them in 2 colors!


I love true religions. I'm not sure why. I have absolutely no reason to be brand loyal to them...well I guess that's not entirely true. I have one pair that I wear ALL the time and 3 years after that purchase they still look good and make me feel good! What's not to be loyal to?! As a result whatever the trend I always look for it in True Religion. That's not to say I purchase them (as soon as I hit the big time I'll be purchasing TRs as often as my heart desires but until then...), but I certainly lust after them, e-mail pictures of them to other shopaholic friends (Meg and Abby this means you), and hint to my husband to get them FOR me (the sweet man bought me the other pair...let's just repeat that shall we?!). These aren't exactly as budget friendly as Old Navy's. At $190 you may have to go without your daily Starbucks run for a couple of months, but that just might be a trade I'd be willing to make.

                                                     

If you're looking for a happy medium between 39.50 and 190, I think you've found it. I love these Gap Legging Jeans in faded black wash. I love how they aren't cheesy looking and look substantial enough to not make you wish you had the shape of a 12 year old boy. You can celebrate your curves in these. And I LOVE the wash. Not quite black just looks edgy without even trying. I could see wearing these with Chuck Taylors or something closer to the almond toe platforms the model is wearing. One word: SEXY.

Stay tuned for more posts on must haves for fall (Thanks for the idea Lulie!).

Happy Shopping,
Love Tiffany

  1. Loved this post Tiffany. I've been thinking for some time that I need to buy a pair, but didn't want to spend the money. It's tough being cheap when you love fashion ; ) At least I won't feel bad buying the Old Navy pair.

  2. Thanks Brittaney! I am ordering the Old Navy ones as we speak! ;) Only thing is they were sold out in my usual size but I'm hoping since they are leggings I can go up a size and be fine. We'll see! Btw, if you spend $100 you can get 20% off with ONSAVE20 coupon code. If you order them comment back and let me know if you like them or not!

  4. Oh I'm jealous! they don't sell Talls in the store...I paid $32. I want my $12! ;) Maybe I'll try a pair on and see just how short they are...I would most likely wear them with boots anyway. hmmmm.
