So i did it


I swallowed my pride, "ate" all the comments I have made over the past year and plunked down a chunk of change for some jeggings.

Yes. Jeggings.

Super comfortable, surprisingly flattering, perfect-with-boots jeggings.

I wish I could wear them every day.

Get yours now so you can ride this wave as long as it lasts because they are awesome.

(p.s. if you live by a Hot Mama they have many options and their staff are always helpful and friendly.)

Good for you! Given the hard winter it looks like Minnesota is having, anything that gives you pleasure and some warmth is a good thing.

I got 2 pair-a denim pair and a pair of black knit ones. It is surprising how they make one look. They are great with boots. I just have to wait for the ice to melt so I can wear my boots!

I'm still holding out against them, but enjoy... I'm sure they look great.

It's always great to find a new favorite! What finally turned the trick?

The pair I bought might not actually be jeggings, but they have super skinny legs and a higher waist to hold that "I had six kids" belly tucked in where it should be.I agree - I think they are more flattering and comfortable. Lovin' my pair, too!

Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssss! You go, Naphtali!

I literally just let out a joyful whoop for your jeggings conversion. Aren't they AMAZING? In my mind, they always feel like socially acceptable sweatpants. It's surprising how quickly they become a wardrobe staple.

I am certain you look fantastic!

I just bought my first pair of skinny jeans. kinda the same? Guess I'll have to get some jeggings too. But I don't have the boots to go with so haven't even worn them yet!

hooray for you!! i ditto your comments. i love love love them too. someday we'll say "what were we thinking" but for now, i say anyone who disses them has so never tried them on!

I think I talked Christa into the skinny jeans after calling her from the fitting room one night... he, he.
I don't own either yet, but just bought some for my girls, so much easier to tuck into their boots.
I just realized I can wear my capris all winter with my tall sorell boots.... ;)
