I have been debating the same article of clothing for months now.
A trend item, if you will.
A trend I have not been able to partake in.
Call it age phobia...
Call it de ja vu...(I spent my youth through the 80's)
Oh, hell...call it whatever you will...but I have not been able to bring myself to wearing a pair of leggings.
It's not that I hate them.
I think they look cute.
When worn appropriately.
Appropriate being the key word!
I see more don'ts than do's unfortunately.
And maybe that is part of my fear.
A few weeks ago, Angela and I wear discussing my fear of leggings.
She thought I was silly.
I thought I was too "stocky" to wear them.
She seemed to think that was sillier.
The other day at work, I discussed it again with someone else.
Who said, quite profoundly:
"I don't see what the big deal is...it's just like wearing tights."
So today I took my first baby step.
I wore them with a long ruffle front blouse and my tuxedo cardigan.
And my most favorite boots from Coach.
I felt extremely comfortable.
And yet semi naked...
But it's all about taking baby steps...
