living in leggings

I can't lie - after the bar exam, I had a serious problem transitioning back to normal clothes (you know, those that are not sweatpants/pajamas). I've since come to realize that there's nothing wrong with being a little comfy all the time. Be it in flats, an oversized sweater, or - dare I say it - leggings.

Now I'm totally of the "leggings are not pants" school. But, I'm also a firm believer that when styled properly, leggings can be a worthy substitute. The key is the length of your top - it must be on the longer side. For instance, when paired with hi-top sneakers and a chunky sweater (above), or a tunic-length button-down and booties (below), leggings pass quite convincingly (and comfortably!) as most structured, street-ready garments.

So where do you stand? Leggings or no leggings?

..Now transitioning out of this coat, that's another story. #Obsessed

Pin It Now!


  1. im definitely team leggings haha! love this outfit btw. xo

  2. I know what you mean! I've started to love leggings more and more these days. They look really great with an oversized sweater

  3. And I could not agree more! Leggings can be fashionable too when dressed properly and you certainly did here! That's an amazing coat!

  4. I'm the same way. Leggings are not pants but if styled with longer tops they can work :)
    love your outfit, that coat is a beauty!

  5. I was always a firm advocate of the "leggings are not pants" mantra so I used to never even wear leggings, but now I feel the same way as you do. (And I love my Madewell leggings too much not to wear them constantly.)

    On other note, I'm obsessed with your Prada bag.

  6. I cannot stand the sight of myself in a pair of leggings unless I am doing yoga or some such thing, but it is probably out of fear...I fear that if I tried them and liked them I would never get dressed again...
