When I wear pants this tight my mom always asks if I'm wearing jeggings. I think she does it as a gentle rebuke for going out in public in something so snug but also as a reminder that she is still hip with the kids. When she asked me this time, I tried to explain to her that no, these pants are not jeggings, rather they are the product of track pants tricking jeans into having a baby. I think I lost her there... She's never watched soap operas, so the whole 'tricking' someone into having your baby is unfamiliar territory (I'm OK with the analogy as I watched Days of Our Lives religiously during the summer before Gr. 9...).
However you define these pants, I really like them. I wore them all day working from home (when I actually do wear track pants...the shame...), then I lint rolled the cloud of cat hair off them, threw on some unique accessories and called it fabulous.
So, what did we learn today?
Jentine's mama does not like tight pants. But Jentine does...

I like tight pants, too, especially the comfy ones, and my mother does not. No. But you look badas* with that headscarf, lady. And the shoes? Sigh. I want them...

You have the coolest collection of handbags!

I look forward to your outfit posts like no one else's. I love the scarf in your hair - I tried that one day and I looked ridiculous. You look great. Also, I happen to love jeggings but the hybrid you have on sound even better. Hmmm

3 cheers for fitted pants!
I've been jonesing for some jeans I tried on at GAP a few weeks ago, but they were just too much $$$ to justify buying them.

Love the outfit!

Christina said...

Those shoes, that purse, wonderful!

Sal said...

Those pants are sassy, sexy, and super flattering. And I'm loving the headscarf. I'd look like Steven Tyler if I tried that out.

Fifth Sparrow said...

Love the outfit, especially those shoes! They're kind of perfection all summed up!

So, you have my address, right? 'Cause it's so nice that you're going to send me that purse right away.

I went through 3 sheets the other day on my jeggings before a meeting. The gentleman sitting on the park bench enjoyed when I got out of the car to get my tush. If I hadn't been in the red zone from some jerk face biker, I would've cheekily asked him to help. The lady staring at my camel toe before I could yank the pants out of my lady bits wasn't helping matters. Friday is tmi day in case you didn't get the memo..

Future Lint said...

Fabulous indeed. I love the scarf tied that way - it really fancies up the casual tee!

Nadine said...

The scarf and bag are insane! Love!

Fantastic photos, too.
