Oh. My. Gosh. So I went to Volunteer (for ART CON) training at the warehouse last night. I wanted to test run “regular” clothes. So I wore:
Tights, Leggings , Jeans, Wool hiking socks, Cotton knee socks, Dr Martins , A tee, A cardigan, A hoodie, A leather biker jacket, Leather gloves, And ear muffs.
And I was still cold. I just have to believe it will be warmer the night of the event. They will close all the doors, which are all open now, and I’ve heard tale of portable heaters. I mean, I just don’t have any more serious cold weather gear than that, you know?
I am wearing my new jeans(which are actually jegggins) today. I love love love them. I have more details further down in the post but here is my outfit…
I love them SO HARD. They are perfect, just perfect.
I have a happy hour after work today and the invite said “Lowest Key Happy Hour Ever”. I am so looking forward to that, and by it’s very title, all the pressure to wear something special has been lifted, and I can just feel good going in my vintage tee and jeans. That’s always nice. I think when I was younger it was easier to know what to wear, when...but as I get older it gets harder to tell which events I should go all out for, which events I should dress up just a bit for and which ones are just casual.
And this outfit will be great for all day because it’s cozy, and has lots of layers so if I get warm, I can remove some, but if it’s cold I can wear them all. No worries. Just cozy.
So, like I said, these jeggings are perfect. They are a dark wash, with no weird fading or whatnot, just a nice, dark wash. They are long enough for me, which is sometimes a problem for me. They have back pockets. But the front pockets are fake, creating a nice smooth line. There is no zipper, which means my fly can never be undone, hahaha. They do have a button, and the waist is not elastic, but the same stretchy denim as the rest of the pant. That’s kind of a big deal to me, because my fear with my old jeggings was that I’d raise my arms and people would see the waistband, which was tacky looking elastic and also gave me a fat roll I don’t normally have. The waist is actually really nice. It’s stretchy enough to keep the pants firmly in place, but it does not pinch or give me “muffin top” AT ALL. And it is really comfortable and not constrictive at all when sitting, the way some jeans can be. I swear I have jeans I think are going to cut me in half. Here are some detail shots of the waistline for you…
See? They look just like "real" jeans. Seriously, I love them. Love love love.
