You've Caught Me And You Know Why

I have a couple new pairs of jeans that are flares, and I'm really excited about them being back on trend, but on the flip-side, I hope the jegging never dies. I know it's an unpopular thing to say among the trendy and cool, but I never claimed to be trendy or cool! I still hate the word..."jegging"...it's kind of gross to be honest. But I love the actual pant.

I bought two pair of these grey tie dye leggings when they were in stores and I'm already wishing I had bought a couple more for safe keeping. They are such a go to item for me.

And I love the new swingy tanks like this that are everywhere right now. Because I love my tight pants, I am always on the lookout for flattering but forgiving things to wear on top.

What's your favorite jean shape right now? I feel like pretty much anything goes! skinny, bootcut, flare, high waisted, wide legged, low waisted...I'd love a pair of high wasited wide leg myself! I've no idea how I'd style them but I'm sure I'd figure it out!

Okay, so what is the difference between skinny jeans and jeggings? Besides the fact when I see the label "jegging" in a store I immediately put them down. I can't tell the difference by looking at your photos, so is it just the name that offends me?

Also, I really like your new bangs!

I really dug the jegging this past winter - a great look for a lot of body types with tall boots, a sweater coat or long cardi. My body isn't built for jeggings so I am digging the flares and wide leg styles back en vogue. However I love these on you, gorgeous!

And I love your bangs, they are so great on you and fit your personal style!

You look so gorgeous in this post, especially in the top picture. I'm in awe. I just bought my first swingy tank and I'm LOVING it! I'd love a pair of high-waisted flared jeans (or wide-legged sailor jeans - I used to have a pair, but after many years they died), but I'm still all pro- skinny jean/jegging these days!

Girl, you know you could rock those high waisted wide leg jeans with those clogs and some kinda floral top. It's easy! But I will always love the jegging too, but not the name. Not ever.

I have to say that skinny and straight leg jeans are my thing right now. I wish I could do flaired and wide legged jeans but being a pear shaped person it's hard to find a pair that doesn't make me look huge.

Penney's has some of those in the junior section now. I don't see them on the website, but they were in store when I was there on Thursday.

ERin, YOUR HAIR GORGEOUS!! I am currently in love with jeggings, because they look good on me and I haven't been able to wear anything like that in so long. My HS girls love it when I wear them!! BTW..your lace top is beautiful!

Erin said...

I love these swingy type tops! So fresh and comfy.

Abbe said...

Those pants are ones I am sad I never bought... I thought about it, but just didn't... Bummer! I hate the word "jegging" as well. I refer to them as a "legging pant" which for some reason I find highly amusing. I am loving the bangs on you!

CC said...

Love this look on you. I am looking for a perfect pair of high-waisted wide-leg jeans. Of course, that doesn't mean that my skinnies will go anywhere. I love that with jeans right now, anything goes.

Emmika said...

Whoa first picture's especially beautiful! I hear what you're sayin about jeggings, just coming into winter in NZ, gotta get that mix btwn stylish, flattering and frikin warm and comfortable!

God's Favorite Shoes! said...

Your hair kind of rocks! Well not kind of...IT ROCKS! Period!

Slow Southern Style said...

Can I just please girl crush on your for a minute? Your hair is amazing in these pictures and your outfit is so bas ass rocker girl but in an updated, trendy way and not a lame "I hang out w/ band guys and get wasted all the time" sort of way.

Ahem.

Looking back on old pictures flared and boot cut looks horrible on me. It is way to much fabric so I think I'm going to stick to straight leg and skinnies for a minute.

GoodFrameofMind said...

I love both styles as well. Your hair looks so great - so envious of that length you have!

Flight Attendant Extraordinaire said...

I never actually bought any jeggings, but I love me a skinny pant. Before the rise of the skinnies, I'd settle for a straight leg, but even that was hard to find in a flattering rise amidst all the flares & bootcuts.

Collette Osuna said...

I love wide leg jeans....just gotta get another pair..I found a cool pair at Love Culture, but now I think they fit kinda funny in the front.....you look great in your jeans! I love these kind of tanks too....I look at it like I can eat a bit more and they are still baggy, hahaha....you look great! Are you still loving your new bangs?

Heather - Inner cupcake said...

You look like such a badass in this outfit! I don't know if I will ever personally be able to wear swingy tanks(since I struggle to wear something that doesn't define the waist), but I lurve them on other people and I live by the flattering but forgiving motto- and that is why I wear dress all the time (esp if they have elastic waistbands :)

Katie said...

I'm really excited that flared jeans are back in too because I've always been a bigger fan of flares than skinnies. Not that they have to be back in for me to wear them, oh no, I just like the fact that I guess I am cool again for having them. Or something like that. HAHA.

LOVE LOVE your hair, girl. So pretty.

The Suburb Experiment said...

I'm a flare girl. Perfectly worn in flares - I don't even care if they're in style or not. :)

You look super good in jeggings (blech. I agree about the name)and I love that swingy shape on top too. It's pretty flattering on a lot of body shapes.

I have 1 pair of skinnies that I wear on occasion, but flares and trouser jeans look best on me.

WendyB said...

You're really working those bangs, girl! Love.

grace said...

I like having lots of jeans shapes to choose from.

Your hair, though, is why I am commenting. It looks AMAZING in these pictures.

JEGGINGS have changed my life. Ha! I love them so much, so I hope they never die, either.
