LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTS

50 IS NOT OLD | LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTSI have had a wild and crazy month. I have been traveling way more than usual and then November is the month that I organize a craft fair. I am so nutty that I have been going through my emails making sure I have replied to everyone. The problem is that I reply on different items, laptop, desktop, and cell phone, so I don’t have all my emails in one spot only. 50 IS NOT OLD | LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTSBecause I have the memory of a gnat, I replied to one reader today only to have her email me back that she appreciated my reply but I had already replied to her once. Lol! I guess I would rather reply twice as not to reply at all. The craft fair was this weekend so maybe I can get back to normal now. Oh wait, Thanksgiving is coming up and Christmas shopping is something I need to start doing, so don’t count on it. Just smile to yourself if you happen to receive two email and think, “she’s a little scatterbrained but she means well.” Haha!50 IS NOT OLD | LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTSHere I am in mostly gray. I like gray as long as it is not in my hair. My gray hair isn’t that “pretty” gray that some women are blessed with, it is more that yucky half blonde half gray look. It just looks dirty instead of pretty and white. The gray in this LOGO top is not exactly the same color in my leggings but it still “goes” with the look. The top has a v-neck, which I love, and pockets. I will always choose a v-neck if possible because it elongates my neck. I don’t want to look like a giraffe but I don’t want my neck looking all squatty either. 50 IS NOT OLD | LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTSDon’t you just love this necklace? This was sent to me by Julie from Kay & Star. She was so sweet she actually sent me this plus some Halloween necklaces for me and my two BFF’s. Their jewelry is so pretty and more importantly, it is great quality. I have received several pieces from them and I have NEVER had any problems with anything. 50 IS NOT OLD | LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTSYou can see the different color variations in the round beads and also that it is knotted between each bead. This is strung on a leather cord so you do not have to worry about the necklace breaking when you are wearing it. While I love the color and the beads with the accents of silver, what I really fell in love with was the tassel. This is no small tassel, it is really big and bold. Here is another necklace that I received from Kay and Star with a different style tassel.50 IS NOT OLD | LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTSWhat do you think about these leggings? Would you have purchased these if you had seen them in the store? These remind me of those ink splotch pictures you see where you have to guess what they are showing you. Lol! I have been on a legging kick recently and I think it is going to get even worse. Someone asked me if leggings had replaced hosiery and that is about true. No one wears hose anymore, you will either wear tights, leggings or just go bare legged. I bought these at a pop-up boutique party that one of my friends was having. These sold for 10.00, which I thought was a good deal till I went to the craft fair this weekend. There was a vendor set up selling leggings for $5.00 a pair! Let’s just say that I came home with a bag FULL! Everyone needs to remember that leggings are not pants. Please wear leggings like you would hose, uder dresses and tunics with your hiney covered. If I don’t wear them with an outfit I will wear them to sleep in. I know I what I said about bedroom attire, but come on gurls, it is cold in the winter.


50 IS NOT OLD | LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTSMy mother asked me the other day about a pair of boots I was wearing. She thought they looked like they were different heights so here is a picture of these two together to show her they are the same. Haha50 IS NOT OLD | LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTSSee what she means, with my leg bent forward the boots look like they are different. I love these boots c/o White Mountain Shoes. They are called the Bethesda and come in this stone color. They are super soft and the half zipper on the inner lower part of the boot make them easy to pull on. I have one pair of boots that I love but hardly ever wear because they are so hard to get on. I now look for zippers in my boots. Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | LEGGINGS ARE NOT PANTSI chose my ivory/winter white satchel to carry with this outfit. I wanted the only color to be from the leggings and I didn’t want to have a purse that competed for attention. This purse is one I love because of the color and the style, but it is a no-name purse so I can’t link to it, sorry. These are the best I could do.http://rstyle.me/n/b6nd6sb6xt7

I didn’t mention the Plunder jewelry that I have on. Here are the links, earrings, bracelet on the left, on the right is the Logan which is not available at this time. Through the rest of November I I am offering 10% off any order over 50.00 (excluding the taxes and shipping) I will send you a check.To place an order for the 10% off with Plunder, go to www.plunderdesign.com/party/tania Plunder will be offering Black Friday specials.

    What a gorgeous outfit, I really must get some patterned leggings even if only for the holiday season! I seem to live in leggings lately, they keep me warm 😄 Can you chase your two BFFs again for another shoot, they were such fun last time!

      I wish I could, Caroline. Whenever we are all together one of us won’t be “dressed” so no pictures are taken. Maybe I can talk them into a shopping trip with pictures before we go.

    What fun leggings! I love that you paired them with the neutral tunic & boots! You look fabulous!

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving week! Hope you’ll find some time to relax! 🙂

    Love this outfit!

    Leggings are off the radar for me because of my lovely thunder thighs, but I love the look on others 😀

    You are that lady who turns heads when you walk by because you always look so stylish! Way to rock the 50s

    Have a wonderful day!

    Hi Tania – you know I would never have bought those leggings had I seen them in a shop but this outfit looks so cool on you that I may just try this look too. Adore the way you have combined it with grey boots and jumper!

    Have a Fab Monday.

    I have to give you props I would have never worn these thinking they are for a much younger woman but they look fabulous on you I love the way you paid them with the long top and Boots but I really think it is the color of the leg almost like an art print do you know where I could find maybe the exact pair

    Beautiful outfit. I really like the LOGO top and how you’ve styled it. Just stepping out into that style myself and am really starting to like how forgiving it can be once I find the right size and fabric.

    Wish I could wear your outfit today. Over a foot of snow in Upstate NY this morning so think I’ll be bringing out a fleece top and velour leggings. Way too early for all the white stuff!

    Enjoy your day!

      Audrey, I have been online this morning looking for velour leggings. Lol!

    Funny, because we are wearing leggings on my blog today too!
    Although I am wearing my pair more like pants, because they have pockets and are thicker—kinda like skinny jeans! Tell me if you think it’s inappropriate??

    Super cute! Love it all, especially the necklasce. I’d probably buy the leggings, depending on my mood while I was shopping…then wear them all the time & wonder how I lived without them! Ha!

    Love this outfit! I don’t wear leggings unless I have a shirt that covers my (can I say crotch?:) So usually I wear them with dresses. Most of my shirts in my wardrobe are not long enough. I do love this look on you though. My girlfriends and I were just having this discussion about leggings this weekend, how they are not meant to replace pants!! Love the blog (and your hair – fabulous 🙂

    This is a lovely look on you and you are spot on about flattering affect of a v-neck. You are also right on the money about leggings not being pants. There is little less flattering than leggings that are close to ones skin color that are worn with a regular top rather than a tunic. At a glance, a person might look like they had forgotten to wear pants, LOL.

    Tania, could you explain what ‘jeggings’ are? I am 68 yrs. old, and want a comtemporary look, but feel almost silly in long tops with leggings…..I feel OK with dresses and skirts with tights (or leggings, I guess), but I am not sure that the ‘big long top with leggings’ is one for us upper 60’s gals…..And I haven’t a clue as to what ‘jeggings’ are….My grandmother had a phrase, “Mutton gotten up as lamb” that seems to ring loudly inside my head, and I am very wary of that! Love your daily posts!

    • Bonnie

      Suzanne, jeggings are a cross between jeans and leggings. So, denim (or denim-looking) leggings.

    What would you recommend for people with heavier legs? Are leggings still an option?
    LOVE your look today!!

    I would so wear this super cute outfit. I read that a print legging is more forgiving than a plain color…not that you need any forgiveness bc you have great legs, but some of us aren’t so blessed. My legs aren’t huge, but they have seen firmer days 😉
    Accessorized perfectly!

    Oh this is one of my favorite outfits you’ve done! So fun and fresh. I agree for our age leggings are not pants, but women my daughters’ ages obviously disagree Mixed results! Some young ladies make it work, others-not so much 😕
    Tania, ya really got it goin on in this cute ensemble! 🙌

    This outfit is stunning and is definitely my style also. I adore leggings, they are so comfortable and sleek looking….as long as your hiney is covered as you mentioned. Love your blog Tania!

    Nice outfit but last week one of your readers commented that leggings weren’t for her. Now I am wondering if that vendor selling them for $5.00 was because they are on the way out. I am not seeing them much in higher end stores but then I haven’t been looking for leggings because I don’t like them on me. You style them well. I think of my clothes as investments and I want every item I purchase to work with at least 3 other things in my closet. It makes mixing and matching easier.

    I am LOVING all of my new LuLaRoe buttery leggings. They are DIVINE. But, I agree…THEY ARE NOT PANTS !!! Wear them with a dress or long tunic that covers your rear and your *crotch* area.

    Early last spring when I attended a conference with some fellow teachers (I have since retired), I wore a long white button down and black leggings. One of teachers commented as we were leaving our hotel room, “Robin, you have such tiny little legs!” I am short and chubby (apple shaped), so to hear anything about me called tiny was awesome. I floated on air all day after her comment! I wish I was brave enough to wear patterned leggings. Yours look great!

    I love this outfit!!! I am just recently becoming brace enough to try leggings out! I feel
    more comfortable in patterned ones as opposed to solid color because I’d like to think that helps hide my lumps or bumps that I would rather not share with others. I hate cellulite!

  • Mariana

    Love that whole outfit. And no, I would have never thought about buying those leggings. It just goes to show you never know.

    Hi Tania, love your outfit! The colors and print are lovely! Just a suggestion, if you “sync” your different devices, your email accounts will be updated and contain all the emails whether you use your tablet, phone, or laptop. 🙂

    Leggings are not pants!!! Preach it loudly and often, sister, because that message has not reached the whole female population…and it’s not a pretty sight. And that means cover your “backside” and your “frontside.” And it doesn’t matter how young you are or how thin you are.

    I have two pairs of wild leggings like this. One pair I wore once last year with a dress and knee boots and one pair I haven’t worn. Will try to branch out this year. Love the gray on you. Very pretty!

    Oh this outfit is so me! I WISH I had those leggings & could find this top. I love that color, but it doesn’t look like the “Slate” one in the link. So I’ll just go shopping. And plus I don’t have any boots like that so have to buy those too! Ha!

  • Laurie

    “Wow! I love this outfit!” that was my first response, and I almost never like leggings. It is neutral with just the right POP!
    I would so wear this, it is quite lovely. Well done Tania!
