Wearing: Charley 5.0 Navy Denim Leggings

It’s official, I’m a jegging addict. Last week, Charley 5.0 sent a box of their jeans to try out, and I’ve been living in them since. I’ve tried to wear other clothes, but after wearing denim leggings, nothing is as comfortable and easy this. They are tight without constricting, and contrary to popular belief, instead of showing every flaw they have thicker fabric than regular leggings so they end up holding everything in. I never thought my legs looked so good before. True story!

Today, I’m wearing the leggings with my standby army jacket and sheer floral blouse. With jeggings, it feels like because they’re so tight, one has to be careful about the heel height, wearing sexy shoes with tight, tight jeans can lead to be overly sexy for daytime wear. I opted for a vintage low heeledย  nude pump.

    I’m slowly but surely converting to jeggings. Would be great to see you in these with tall, tall heels!

    i wasn’t very convinced about jeggings… but if you say they keep everything in… i might reconvert form regular jeans. you know, the whole reason why i love jeans is that they give me that feeling of security, of keeping tight to the skin. does it sound silly? i hope not! =D

    i love how you paired them with the army jacket and the pumps… you look very ladylike!

    kugs&kisses!

    You look so fab! Love that army jacket – I wish I had your jacket wardrobe!

    Quick question – what are jeggings like in terms of the muffin top (you know my obsession with the muffin top…)?

    heather…oh yes, i hear UO has great jeans…
    Tami..haha you’ll convert, i know it! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Daiane… they do! trust me, they do… i like them better because they don’t give muffin top.
    pink ronnie… oh yes, me too.. and they don’t give me muffin top at all, which is an added bonus.

    I LOVE jeggings! I’ve been living in them since February when I got the slick skinny by citizen of humanity! I LOVE LOVE LOVE them! I have worn them with 4-5 in heels and it does look a little over the top, but as long as i keep the top simple of classy, I think it looks ok. You should try it! ๐Ÿ™‚
