Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, haters! I just wore leggings as pants. o_O O_O O_o Haha! Aww yeah. I can feel your glares of judgment. I'm practically bathing in it! I just got back and what is the first thing I do? I upset people. You know, I wouldn't have it any other way. Haha. Just hear me out, though, dammit!
Save your squinty eyes and wrinkly noses until after I've explained myself. First, let me say that wearing leggings as pants is quite liberating. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to walk around half naked, just wear leggings as pants. Hehe. It really feels like you're wearing nothing at all, nothing at all, nothing at all.. Oh, sorry. Just channeling Ned Flanders, there. Second, I took precautions so that I could avoid the main gripe of people who rail against this practice: i.e. everyone seeing your undies.
I simply didn't wear underwear. *Cue audience gasp and subsequent rabble rabble rabble.* Now, just hold the f*ck on, people. What did I just say? I said to wait until after my explanation and I'm not done, yet. Geez. So, as I was saying, I didn't wear underwear, because these faux leather leggings are pretty tight. They show every crease and seam, which is probably why I haven't worn them since I bought them last year. I was feeling brave, I guess. Heh. Well, good one, Anna. I'd rather see your underwear than your bare ass. True dat. However, thanks to other precautions, onlookers saw neither. ^_^
You see, I wore something called Spanx and no, it's not just for olds. Anyone who cares about her appearance can wear Spanx. I have a high waisted pair of Spanx tights and a shorts version. I often wear either of these underneath my clothes. I do it all year round and I'll have you know that I've worn them underneath outfits I've showed on my blog. ;D The great thing about the tights version is that it's opaque; it's tight so it keeps all my giggly bits in order and it has a padded gusset so I can wear it without undies, if I so choose and I did choose. I did choose. So you heard it here first. Haha.
OK, so I put those opaque Spanx tights on and then I put the faux leather leggings on over those and you know what? It totally smoothed me out and it added a layer of dark fabric, so I was completely covered. There you have it, folks. I wore leggings as pants and nothing bad happened. I didn't get struck by lightning or anything. I might have gotten some disapproving looks from a bunch of olds, but I didn't notice because I was too busy feeling the giggle of my bum as I walked to and fro. Freedom! :D
So....what else am I wearing? Heh. Well, the only other new thing I'm showing off is this dark green spiked cardigan. I wanted to do kind of an urban look, but with a slice of geek chic. The cardigan gave the outfit an edge while the ping pong top brought some levity into the mix. The cardigan isn't as delicate as I thought it would be. I expected some of the spikes to fall off after the first wear, but it's holding up. It's the only green cardigan I have right now and the color is so perfect for Fall, so I hope to get a lot of wear out of it in the coming months. It's too heavy and thick knit to wear in the summer.
And that's that! If I didn't offend some people with my outfit, then that means I didn't do it, right. So, I expect to rub some people the wrong way with this one, but hopefully I didn't scar anyone for life. Hehe.
