A Penny For Your Thoughts




Leggings: Nordstrom (similar), Boots; Jessica Simpson, Shirt: Zara (similar), Sweater: ANGL (similar)

Ladies and gentlemen, I have re-instated the boots into my wardrobe. Happiness. This outfit incorporates four of my favorite and most comfortable items of clothing, including leggings. The only problem is that my husband doesn't think that leggings classify as pants. My opinion is that as long as your bum is covered, it's okay, right? Your thoughts on this matter please...

Are leggings pants? Are they appropriate to wear in public?

With the loose top you paired it with, those leggings totally count as pants :)

Cam and I were just talking about this! Agreed with the bum coverage rule. If it's covered and they are thick enough, go for it!

This post makes me want to wear boots, too. Great outfit!

Why do I feel like I've never seen that sweater?! I love it and I want it. Did you steal it from mom?! And, as far as the leggings go...absolutely they are acceptable as pants, especially in an outfit like this where you're only seeing about a foot of them. love you sista!

@MaryClaire: No, I've had this sweater for about 5 years now. Haha. It's my go-to travel essential because it feels like I'm wearing a blanket. I love it!

Hey Catherine! Love you blog! I am an old student athletic trainer and you might or might not remember me, but that is totally fine :). I don't usually comment, but I had to on this one!
I work with the youth in our ward and modesty is something that we talk about ALL the time. It's also something I have become very aware of for myself so that I can be a good example, and especially to my three little boys. For that reason, I personally have chosen not to wear leggings.
This is what it says in the For the Strength of Youth pamphlet:
"Immodest clothing is any clothing that is **tight**, sheer, or revealing in any other manner..."
Leggings are sooooooo comfortable, but I have had to reason within myself that even if something is comfortable, that doesn't mean it isn't too tight. Leggings are "revealing" as the shape of a woman is totally revealed with no secrets, and really, if leggings aren't considered tight, I don't know what is.
I want you to know I am not judging you at all!! I just thought I would share my personal feelings on the matter since you left it open for discussion (which I totally admire).
Lastly, I love the little challenge you are doing with yourself. It is a wonderful idea that I'd like to try some year :)

Leggings are perfect as long as you have a tunic-type top on! Approximation of a dress with tights.
