leggings ARE pants!



Recommended Posts

They are pants or whatever I decide I want them to be! People are so quick to tell someone what they can and can't wear at certain weights. Sure, some articles of clothing don't necessarily flatter everyone but I've decided I will not allow anyone to tell me what I can and cannot wear ever again so to Celebrate that new found freedom I'm wearing leggings, My daughter snapped a picture and I'm sharing it!!! Like it or not!! Oh and when my new tall boots show up this week that cover my thick legs I'm going to wear them too!!! Hope everyone is winning their own battles. :)

You look great in your leggings! I am one of those people that is of the opinion that leggings are not pants, lol, primarily because I feel like most of them are sort of thin material and I feel like if I'm not wearing a longer shirt that goes down to mid-thigh, then maybe my butt might be a little more see-through than I prefer. Thick leggings all day, but thinner leggings, eh...I stay away. Speaking of leggings though, it is almost fall which means lots of shorter dresses with leggings and tights and boots and coats and scarves and pumpkin spice lattes. Yay and yum.

@@AvaFern Lol! Well maybe not the thin ones but I'm feeling pretty liberated! I have NEVER worn leggings of any kind (since being a kid) I always saw jokes about bigger people wearing certain clothes. I feel like I got ripped off because these are comfy!!! I have 6 pairs now :)

I'm with you Elode! Strut your stuff girl! Don't you just feel "free" now? You can wear whatever you want to wear. Not saying you couldn't before, but now do it with confidence.

We should wear what we want to wear.

I certainly do!

I'm about to quit giving even a small f**k what anybody else thinks about me.

And it's going to feel good. :)

I guess I'm just having a fed up moment! Soooo many times I've liked something and wouldn't dare buy it because "society" says I won't look right in it, I'm too big for that, Some flesh may protruded a little more than it "should". I say the hell with it!! If I like it and I'm not breaking any "actual" laws I'm wearing it!

@@proudgrammy Oh the striped Blouse saga! ;) I'm glad you can and do wear them! Who makes these rules anyway?! My pup is happy because I was gone working for 14 hours, he probably thought I was gone forever.....like every time I leave a room. I'm sure we would look just radiant standing together! Who's gonna tell us we don't?!!

Cute! I also love leggings with boots and a longer sweater or tunic! That will be staple winter wear for me. I was wearing skinny jeans tucked into my boots last year... but I have several pairs of leggings I plan on wearing this year. Wear what makes you feel happy, because I am sure you look great in all of it : )

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
