It's ironic, that after eating so much I am talking about jeggings lol. I kind of stayed away from jeggings and skinny pants for a long time, except one pair from Kitson when I needed something to wear boots over. But now that it's colder again and I am going to be traveling for the next couple weeks, I figured I needed more than 1 pair so I can rotate. And of course I needed different colors! So, since the Kitson ones are black, I got a pair of white and a pair of dark wash denim jeggings from Abercrombie. I actually really like Abercrombie denim shorts, which I bought a bunch of in the summer. So I figured their jeggings would be pretty nice too, and I was right! I really like them. They are so comfortable, stretchy and fit well. I bought them in size 4, which is a bit looser / not skin tight, and how I like them.
It's kind of weird, because the dark wash pair have fake pockets on the front, but the white ones have real ones. I wish the dark ones had real pockets too! It's very strange, because I keep wanting to put my hands in the pocket or put something little in them and I find out again and again every time that they are not really there! Oh well.
I love white pants, but they are so hard to keep clean. With boots over though, I think I have less to worry about.
I also got these great Stella jeggings from Express, in this beautiful dark olive green color. They are sold out online so I can't link them. They were actually the last pair at the store as well, and they were hiding under a pile of jeggings in a different color. They happened to be my size (size 2)! When I was paying for them, the sales associate couldn't believe I found them in the store either. Here's a picture of me wearing them, but the lighting was too dark so they kind of just look black. :(
Anyway, this is what they look like under better lighting:
So, now I have 4 pairs of jeggings! Should be enough to last during my trip. Of course I've got a bunch of other pants too! Always the over-packer. I need to think hard and cut back big time because my suitcase is already overflowing. Packing is so stressful! Well, I will worry more about that tomorrow when it's no longer Christmas. =)
