Meggings, Leggings and Jeggings

I’m sort of wishing I hadn’t Googled this, but I did.  Hey, I’m a curious person.

It all started last week when I saw the word “meggings” trending on Yahoo.  Hmm, meggings?  That sounds interesting.  What could that be?

Then the thought crossed my mind that this *could* mean leggings for men.  But I pushed that image out of my head as soon as it popped up.  I mean, men in leggings, really?

One click later, that thought became a reality as I read the following headline, accompanied by this image:

MEGGINGS, the New Metro-Sexual Must Have 

There are SO many more things that I could say right now.  But I don’t really need to.  I’m just going to let you marinate on that.

Moving on…

 My Week in Leggings and Jeggings

So, I successfully spent five whole days in leggings and jeggings last week.  It was the perfect week to do it, after all.  First off, winter temps FINALLY came to Texas.  Yee haw!   Time to bust out the big comfy sweaters.  Secondly, my hubby was away on a business trip all week.  Leggings seemed totally appropriate to wear while donning the super mom cape.  Superman does it, right?

Day One

You don’t know how happy I was to wake up to a tiny skift of snow on Monday morning.  The temps were in the teens overnight and I didn’t leave the house all day.  Pretty much the perfect day for a fur scarf and chunky knit.  These leggings are made of cozy fleece and feel incredible.

Day Two

Day Three

It started to get warmer out so I ditched the heavier sweaters for my chambray shirt and an open cardi.  My girls and I did all of our Christmas baking that evening.  Fun and yum!

Day Four

Warmer still, ugh.  This wrap was the perfect weight for a day in the low 60’s.  I wore this to the annual Night of Giving at my daughter’s school.
