Hey ladies, happy December! The holiday season is in full swing and I can't believe the year is nearly over!

I spent most of the weekend getting decorations out but amidst all the running around town, I was able to put an outfit to the test. These Spanx faux leather leggings are completely out of my comfort zone. In fact, leggings in general have been somewhat of a mystery to me. Yes they are much more comfortable than wearing regular pants or jeans, but unless I'm going to the gym or lounging around the house, I've never really considered them a suitable option for me. You guys know by now that I'm a pretty modest dresser, and I like to leave most everything to the imagination! Basically, I don't like wearing leggings as pants, and that leaves me feeling a bit limited in the styling department. But hey, you only live once and fashion should be fun so I plopped down the cash during Black Friday and ordered my own pair to try...I have some thoughts...

1. They make your rear look lifted, and we could all use that! Most of mine was covered by the tunic, but I felt confident nonetheless.

2. The waistband comes up pretty high on my stomach, which means it sucks everything in. There's enough stretch that it doesn't feel too tight or uncomfortable though, just very smooth and forgiving.

3. I wish these came in shorter lengths, because they are incredibly long on my 5'2 frame. They tucked into my new suede ankle boots nicely at first, but as you can see, that didn't last! I think I'll try them with taller boots or even flats next time.

4. I don't mind that they are long because they fit fabulously everywhere else. I did go up one size for reference.

5. They look like leather, but they definitely don't feel like leather. I consider that a plus.

Do you like wearing leggings? What's your favorite way to style them? I'd love some more ideas!


  1. You look great in these leggings! I'm so glad you decided to step out of your comfort zone and give them a try! I also love your new suede booties! Those are perfection!

    1. Thank you Gina! I almost got the boots in grey but I’m happy with this toffee/camel color instead :)

  2. I've never tried leather leggings, but they do look sleek and if they are comfortable, why not? As for the length, just hem them, I hate a bunched up pant leg (even if they plague me more than I'd like) short people problems!

    1. Yes, they really do look so sleek! I feel like a badass in them :)
      I’m definitely going to hem them though because they are insanely long and even though it doesn’t bother me in these photos, I know next time it will!
