Well, hello! I hope you have missed me. 🙂 I know I have missed you! I really did not mean to take such a long hiatus, but blogging went to a lower priority for a couple of weeks. It started when I decided on the spur of the moment to join two of my adult children and their families on their trip to Disney World. I had not planned to go, but the thought of seeing all four grandchildren at Disney at the same time, was just too tempting. Best decision I ever made!
On to my topic for the day. It is what you might call a “rant.” I often see people wearing things as pants that are not what I call pants. The main offenders are leggings or tights, but I have also seen people wearing pajama bottoms.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love stretchy pants and yoga pants as much as anyone, and have shown you before my ultimate-very-favorite-wear-with-everything-pair of pants:
I also wear leggings, especially in the winter; HOWEVER, I wear them with a dress or a long tunic:
You KNOW what I am going to say….wait for it……
LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS!!!
I know you have heard this, but I am not sure it has actually penetrated into your consciousness. I see you everywhere. You are wearing your oh-so-comfy and oh-so-warm leggings. “Surely I can just wear them with my favorite top, even if it is a bit short,” you tell yourself. “Even though I am older than dirt, I know I look so youthful in these tight,brightly patterned leggings,” you think.
Oh my! Please ask for an honest opinion before you walk out that door. Remember — it is hard to get an accurate view of the back of your outfit, even in a full-length mirror.
I’m sure I am not actually seeing you 😉 but maybe I am seeing your friends and family. If so, do them a favor, and show them these photos. They are examples of how not to wear leggings. These are all outfits that I have personally seen. I have more, but this is probably enough for one day!
And yes, people do wear pajama pants to the store (and not just WalMart):
I will leave you with a picture of the only place you should ever wear pajama pants: (Really just an excuse to show you my adorable crew)
Thanks for reading. Would love to hear your comments!
