Hey Guys! Ok so today I need to discuss leggings. Now I’m never the one to chastise anyone for choosing to engage in the sport of legging wear, I have quite the collection myself…. Cheetah leggings, electroplated leggings, candy coated leggings, corduroy leggings, alpaca leggings (Witch E loves those J), Christmas leggings…… I have them all, HOWEVER…… let’s curtail it for Friday night, Saturday or football Sundays. Leggings are like mad comfy and I get it why they are the ‘go to’ choice of clothing for most of us ladies, especially when you’re a lil meaty round your middle/lady parts. Plus, paired with the right top and boot or whatever, you can get a waaaay cute look out of it. But let’s take a minute to discuss when and where you shouldn’t wear leggings:
- WORK!! – Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of legging covered booty meat at work, like lots! Now we all know that there are different levels of quality in the legging department. The dollar store leggings are almost like a day sheer; wear them if you like, but certainly not to work. Plus the crotch will give out on you in heart beat when the leggings cost .79 cents, splurge a little ladies!
- PARENT/TEACHER NIGHT - ok yes, as a single broad I can sniff a cutie in the atmosphere, and I believe you should always be on you’re A game cause you never know when you’re gonna meet your dreamboat….. but even I know there are some places/times where it may not be appropriate to just display my chunky camel toe all willy nilly (Sidenote: I’m especially proud of the toe in this pic, this is the toe I typically wear to Wegman’s on Saturdays, I have a 2 phone # minimum in grocery stores) .Yes, your child’s teacher can get it, but wearing your “cum fug me spandex” to the parent/teacher conference is always a bad idea… always. He will remember you but not for the right reason.
3. CHURCH – um okay, nowadays with a lot of churches loosening up on the dress code choosing to instead welcome all through its doors no matter what you have on, some of yous are taking this allowance too far. NO LEGGINGS IN CHURCH!! EVER! Or if you must, please wear them with a sweater that has a train attached to it (yes, the sweater needs to be that long). Keep your kibbles and bits to yourself in the Lord’s house damn it!
4. THE GYM – ok now it may seem odd that I don’t think you should wear leggings to the gym, but it’s not odd, there is a HUGE difference between leggings and work out gear. Leggings are almost always see through, I should know, I wear leggings to the gym with an almost half top all the time, and yes, I am dead wrong. This is as much for me as it is for ya’ll. I used to get mad at the men lined up behind me as I ran on the treadmill wondering, “what the hell are they staring at? I’m just a big ole hunk of woman sweatin n stuff” But then I realized, all my southern comfort was on display and I was giving quite the show, don’t be like me ya’ll, wear the right stuff to gym, quality sweat gear will last longer, plus you won’t look like a slore as you sweat to the oldies and work on your sessy.
Comfort is important to us all, but comfort doesn’t trump looking inappropriate, leggings are an awesome piece of clothing, but please use them responsibly…. Love you!
