I Feel Pretty | Daring

Leggings as pants?  Not a typical style choice I would make in my everyday life.  But on vacation?  Why not.

This is one of the outfits I wore on our recent trip to Miraval Resort.  When I travel, I feel more daring and try out trends that I normally might not feel comfortable wearing in real life, say to Target.  It’s the anonymity of it that allows for the risk taking.

I have to admit, I probably wouldn’t have been as brave if not for these Spanx leggings.  What?  Spanx makes leggings?  Why yes. Yes, they do.  They’re a little bit of an investment but worth every single penny.  Trust me, they’re awesome.  I will be wearing them all fall and winter.

Speaking of stuff I love, I’m obsessed with this Kendra Scott ‘Rayne‘ necklace.  There’s nothing it doesn’t go with.  I mean really, how perfect is it?  It makes everything special – from a basic tee to a dressy blouse.

  • I don’t necessarily take more risks on vacations, but I do love leggings. They’re one of my fav fall pieces – I love styling em with blouses and pumps, or even boots! You look fab!

  • I know exactly what you mean. I flew to Dallas yesterday and wore black leggings and a black short tunic over them which is something I don’t normally do, but it was perfect for traveling. You look gorgeous! And I can’t wait to check out Kendra Scott this week because I need hat necklace. ; )

  • You look gorgeous in these photos! Wowza.
    I find I care less when I go on vacation. As in, I will wear inappropriately short cut-offs to Target whereas I would never do that at home.

  • OMG those leggings are surely FIERCE…..& I also cant take my eyes off those FAB shoes!!!!

  • This might be my favorite outfit yet! I love everything about it! I have a similar top and shoes so hopefully I’ll be able to recreate something similar! Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  • I’m obsessed with this look! I’m totally getting spanx leggings now!!


  • You look amazing Alison!

  • What material are these made of? In one photo they look matte and in another they seem to have a shimmer. Are they hot? Breathable?

  • You rocked those leggings, sister!! I mean DANG!!!! You look gorg! Your husband is a lucky man….I am sure he knows that! And isn’t that KS necklace the best? I have the coral one and can’t get enough of it.

    Alison, I love Leggings. I wear them a lot. Black ones are by far My Most Favorite. You rocked yours. I loved how you styled them. Loving all the Jewelry, especially the Necklace. And those Shoes are Hot. I, too, tend to dress bolder, more daring, etc. when I go somewhere else. I have done that with my trips to Chicago, New York, Toronto, Montreal & Arizona, London, Greece, & Italy for example. Did you have fun at the resort?

    As far as what makes me pretty this week? The LBD I am wearing paired with the Pretty Pink Floral Cardigan. Check it out. 😉

  • Spanx leggings are a dream come true!! You look amazing! We typically vacation in kid friendly places, so I usually wear shorts and tanks. But you have inspired me to try some new styles on our next trip! I linked up today. Susan

  • Great look! I agree that I tend to be the same and maybe more daring with clothing choices when I am going to vacation.


  • You should wear leggings as pants more often!! You have awesome legs! I’m always a little hesitant to wear them as pants too unless I have a longer top on. I didn’t know spanx made leggings! Um…I NEED.

    That outfit is FANTASTIC! You look great in it. YES! I am more daring with my clothing choices on vacation than at home. I wore a fedora the whole time I was visiting my daughter when she had her baby in May. I’ve only worn it twice since I’ve been home. :p I’m such a chicken.

  • amazing outfit! and no — i did not know that spanx made leggings! i am checking it out NOW!

  • Of course I spice it up when I travel. Those spanx leggings look like they will stand the test of time. I’m so tired of buying new black leggings! Like, really…

  • What a perfect travel outfit. I think travel is a great time to treat yourself to a cute, packable outfit and some versatile statement jewelry. It just adds to the fun experience.

  • I love how you paired the leggings with heels, I would have never thought to do that. You look fabulous!

  • Oh I LOVE this look Alison!! You look beautiful, I have been loving the deep olive green and black combination lately, it looks chic and feminine, but edgy too. Miraval would have been amazing!!!

    I hope you’re having a great week and as always thank you for hosting this link up!
