Leggings: Two Must have Pairs for Fall.

Oct 31, 2013

Leggings you either love em or hate em and I absolutely love them. First and foremost they are comfortable which is always nice. Plus I think they make for a really cute fall outfit. A few of my favorite leggings outfits (now if only my legs looked like Blake’s):

I recently found two pairs of leggings that I am smitten with and I know you will be too!    I have found you don’t want leggings that are too loose and have no structure that is just plain unflattering. Both of these leggings fit like a glove.  So far they are the best leggings, I have tried but I am always open to suggestions!  Since I am 9 months pregnant I won’t scar your eyes with pictures of me in the leggings but just trust me they are amazing.  Both are a little on the pricey side for leggings but I swear they are worth every penny!


These are great everyday leggings,  they suck you and are so flattering.  I love the waist band at the top it really sucks you in and flattens out your tummy.  They run true to size, I ordered a size small.
They are a cotton blend and super comfortable.


I have wanted a pair of coated leggings forever and these came highly recommended.  They are super comfortable, I am actually able to still wear them pregnant.  They come in black, espresso, and merlot.  I went with classic black, and they also run true to size I have a size small.  They don’t have quite as much structure as the Spanx but I still found them very flattering.  Great for a dressier pair of leggings.

Choosing tops to go with leggings can sometimes be a struggle, I rounded up a few of my choices.  The key is to find tops that hit at your hips or a touch longer.    I love sweaters or loose blouses with leggings.

    Leggings are pretty much all I wore throughout my pregnancy! I love how versatile they are but let's face : we all love them because they are so comfy!

    I could live in leggings and a loose sweater. Going to check out both pairs of leggings.

  3. I bought my first pair last year (J.Crew signature) but find that they're constantly falling down off my waist and have to be tugged up. Do you have this issue with leggings or is it just that those don't have much structure? Love all the styling options and inspiration!

  4. im tempted to buy a coated pair. thanks for the rec! xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  5. K think I am going to need those leather coated leggings. Please AND thank you.

    I've been eyeing the spanx ones because I need a little extra sucking in post baby but wasn't sure how they would fit- happy to hear that you love them!

  7. Surprisingly the gap has super cute ones with side zippers in black, navy, and gray. The elastic at the top is good too.

    I am a legging lover, too! I finally upgraded from Hue (which are just fine, but not a whole lot there) to Zara leggings. I tried on three pairs and really loved them all, but went home with these — http://www.zara.com/us/en/woman/trousers/leggings-c269187p1361070.html and I love them! The zippers on the hip are awesome and they have a wide waist band like the spanx ones you posted šŸ™‚

    Lululemon Wunder Unders are the best, hands down!

  11. Those Spanx ones looks nice, I'll have to give them a try!

    Even at 12 wks pregnant, I love to live in Leggings – going to check out the Spanx!

  13. I really need a pair of faux leather ones!

  14. Spanxx leggings are the BEST leggings ever. Ever. Totally agree!

  15. I ordered a pair of the ready to wow's a couple of weeks ago in a size up for post baby. I saw a friend in them and have literally never seen her butt look so good, so it sold me on them. I 100% agree with you, the fabric and waistband alone make them totally worth the price tag. It was so great to meet you at the doctors office yesterday! I meant to wish you the best of luck with everything in your pregnancy… I was too psyched out with having pre-term contractions yesterday to think about much of anything other than our little guy. Hope everything goes well with your little lady!

  16. My favorite leggings now are Gap Petite Stretch knit leggings. They are a Modal blend which makes theme super soft. They might be a tad thin for some peoples taste but with a long top they look fabulous and they aren't crazy expensive (gap usually has sales daily). They also come in different lengths which is fantastic for someone short like me. I've bought like 10 pairs when they are on sale…

  17. i own both of these, and i complete agree!! they are perfect!!

  18. Alexa says:

    Yep. LIVED in them throughout both of my pregnancies. Can I tell you a secret? I still have my maternity ones (which I am wearing as we speak) because they are SO comfortable. Winning all around over here. šŸ˜‰

  19. I have a pair of Spanx tights that I wear pretty much the entire winter…I need to try the leggings!! Happy Halloween love!

  20. These look so comfy and lovely, thank you for sharing!



  21. I would love to pull of the poncho/leggings combo. Olivia does it again!

  22. beautiful combinations. I love the coats, definitely a sure win. Their bags are so sexy that matches the whole ensemble. I bet i can find something like those in

  23. Love leggings.. and hey crazy lady.. your legs are better than Blakes! For real though. šŸ™‚
