all about leggings

I tried on my first pair of leggings in December 2013 during my junior year of college (yes, I know how late I was to the legging obsession). My whole world changed. These were $9 black fleece-lined leggings at Windsor. I wore them to death over my month long winter break. It wasn't long before I had a whole pile of them. I never wore just leggings out in public, but all winter I wore them layered underneath my jeans because that was the most brutal winter I can remember. Two layers of pants were necessary everyday. If I was at home, I was wearing leggings.

Now that I'm out of school, my uniform has become black leggings and a long shirt or oversized sweater. Of course, only when it's appropriate! So today, I thought I would talk about my favorite leggings.

From October to May, I pretty much exclusively wear fleece-lined leggings. My favorite is this Zenana Outfitters pair that I got from Dry Goods a few years ago. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find them at the store or online since then. I wanted to purchase another pair so I'm hoping they come back next season. They are a thicker knit fleece-lined one-size legging. When I'm not wearing those, I like the black or grey fleece-lined leggings from Francesca's.

During the summer, I like a thinner legging or an athletic legging. My go-to are these from Express. I have a few pairs. My only dislike is that they are so long on me! But they just started carrying a short length so I might have to try those. For an athletic legging, I really like the ones by Gaiam. They have simple black, cropped, mesh cut-out, and a variety of patterned leggings. This brand fits so well!
