Your Guide to All Things Leggings + Giveaway

Your Guide to All Things LeggingsPlease tell me that I am not the only one who thinks leggings are the best thing to ever happen to style and comfort for women? I L-O-V-E leggings more than pretty much anything else fashion related. They are a staple in my wardrobe and something I wear probably six or seven days a week in the fall and winter. I love how versatile they are and how you can dress them up or dress them down. I pretty much always wear a longer shirt or at least a long tank with them to cover my rear end, but I’ve been known to commit the cardinal sin of leggings and wear them as pants!

So anyway, with my love affair of leggings going stronger than ever, I thought I would share with you some of my very favorite brands!

I love the Mossimo Capri Legging from Target. They are so cheap ($8.00, but you can often get them on sale for $6.00) and are comfy, cute, lightweight, and work perfect for pairing with a long tank in the summer and a sweatshirt in the fall.

Long Leggings from Old NavyYour Guide to All Things Leggings ($11.00, but buy when they have a 30% sale to save even more). These leggings work perfect to wear with a long tunic and boots or underneath a dress. They are inexpensive, making them the perfect legging to stock up on in every color!

If you are a Costco member, you have to check out these Matty M Leggings ($14.99). I bought a burgundy pair of these several years ago, and they have held up amazingly. These are more of a stretchy material and feel fancier than a basic cotton pair of leggings. I wear these a lot under dresses.

Simply Vera Wang Solid Legging ($32.00 at Kohl’s). These are probably my very favorite leggings. They are thicker and feel more like a pant than a legging. I wear these at least once a week and love how soft and flattering they are.

LC Lauren Conrad Solid Leggings ($20.00, but can often get them on sale at Kohl’s for $9.99). These are another great option for an inexpensive pair of basic leggings that hold up really well.

And since no legging is complete without the perfect shirt, here are a few of my favorites to throw on with my leggings:

I love, love, love this french-terry tunic so much that I have it in two colors. This is a must-have for all you legging lovers!

I just bought this striped tunic pullover and love how long it is in the back. Perfect to pair with your leggings, booties, scarf, and a puffer vest for the perfect fall outfit.

I also love wearing plaid flannel shirts with my leggings. Sometimes they are not quite long enough, so I just make sure to pair it with an extra long tank top for maximum coverage.

And what would a leggings post be without a giveaway?!?

I was lucky enough to try the new leggings that The Funky Zebras just got in (they are “one size fits most”), and I am in love. They are silky smooth, fit great, and make you feel like a million bucks.
