. . . for Lauren and Lauren: and why I may never wear pants again

November 5, 2013

and why I may never wear pants again

 
vest: tjmaxx    shirt: old navy    pants: walmart   boots: discovery 

I know that I've talked about these "pants" a few times before so I apologize for sounding like a broken record.  I'm not quite sure I can call them pants because they are technically jeggings, and while I don't love that word I love these pants. This would be pair number three that I own and I'm pretty sure because of them I may never wear real pants again.  I'm also pretty sure I will be buying pair number four and maybe even five.  

Unfortunately my first two pairs were under $10 and Walmart must have known that everyone that buys one pair of these is going to come back and by ten more so they raised their price to $12.  Those two extra dollars.  Still completely worth it.  



I tried to take a picture of the back of these to prove that they look like real pants but every picture was extremely awkward looking.  I don't know how any of you manage to take a "normal" looking picture of your backside.  And I guarantee I was still smiling in each one of them.

Now get yourself to Walmart and purchase a pair or four.

I looked at Wal Mart and couldn't find what I thought was the same pants. Maybe I need a back shot just to make sure ;) I have been seeing a lot of fur in blog land lately...and it's growing on me. I may have to buy something furry...

Your vest looks super warm! I think your jeggings look really comfortable (and great on you!), but something about the idea of leggings as pants doesn't appeal to me. Maybe that'll change as I get older!

I have a pair of "jeggings" from AE that I like. They're pretty worn, which says a lot, I guess. ;) I also had a pair of maternity ones that, of course, were amazing. Anything stretchy is amazing while pregnant, though, huh?

Jeggings are the best! I love them with your vest!

I believe that when you find a great thing, you should buy in multiples! Love the fur vest and gingham shirt. Too cute!

Those are so cute, and look like they're comfy! I can't take a good photo facing forward, I'm not even sure what I'd do if I had to get a backside shot. :)

Dani said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Love these! And I happened to just find on their website that you can order them online in a 2 pack for $18.00, so a great way to get two more pair for $9/each! :)

Hayley! said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Ok, so you have officially convinced me to get a pair of these. Pretty sure I'm gonna get them in maroon and gray! Also, when I clicked on this post, I was more concerned with the fuzzy vest. So much "softness" in this outfit haha!

christina said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

two birds said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Sky-Ann @ The Little Button said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I just love your vest! I also love those pants. If I am up for a Wal-Mart trip this weekend I will have to check and maybe get a pair of those pants.

Jessica said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love jeggings - not even scared to say it! They are so comfortable!
Your walmart must be so much nicer than mine. Because we have nothing like that!
