living a well tended life... at any age

favor-“ette”: legging jeans

This winter.

It was 9 degrees this morning, and that was before the wind chill.

I’m so done with hats, gloves and heavy coats –  how about you?

As there seems to be no end to this deep freeze we’re in, I am more than ever grateful for this find:

I LOVE these legging jeans.

Not skinnies, not leggings and FOR SURE not “jeggings”, legging jeans are the perfect antidote for all that winter bulk.

And more.

Leggings are great for around the house, but I’m no longer feeling that they’re really age appropriate. And we’ve already discussed the passing of the skinny jean moment (too tight, too low-waisted).

But these?

LOVE.

They are as skinny as you can get without cutting off your circulation – perfect to tuck into boots.

They have a mid-rise,which makes them super comfortable AND gives you the option of tucking in a shirt.

And they are very versatile, going quite well with most of my winter/early spring wardrobe.

I have them in black and a dark rinse, and here are just a few of my favorite ways to wear them:

legging jean, parka, hunter boots

coat/wellies

legging jean, hoodie, tee shirt, wedge sneaker

hoodie/t-shirt/sneaker

legging jean, sweater, scarf, bootie

sweater/scarf/boot

Even better? These jeans are 40% off today if you use your Gap card!

Stay warm guys!

    yes!! I just purchased legging jeans from them in light blue. Comfortable and a good compromise since its still cold outside!

      Super stretchy but in a good way – so comfy.

    Awesome! Such great fashion choices, Sheri! I was just thinking about getting new jeans, so how perfect is this? 🙂 I will definitely look into these!

    My doubt is in the hip to ankle visual tapering ratio. I look good in wide leg “slacks”. Really good. If your hips look big, which they will if the visual weight is there, now you’re covering your butt up with a long piece. I do believe they’re comfortable so talk to me about visual balance Sheri.

      I hear you. I might try them with a longer length tee or button up that floats slightly away from the body (not big and boxy but not tight). The way these pants land on me is a bit long in the length so the bottoms “scrunch” up a bit, mitigating that tapered effect – which I don’t care for anyway. Helpful?? xo

        Yes, that is. I have less reticence now. And I like your desciptors. I bet you are a superb shopping buddy Sheri.
        Love Ya’,

          I’m actually the worst shopping buddy Shalagh – but glad I was of help! xo

    Isn’t it funny how we begin to dislike what we become familiar with? I hate that we didn’t have much of a Winter here Phoenix Metro area yet you had too much of it lol These do seem very comfortable I’ll have to try them next fall/winter.
