While leggings remind me of my ballet classes and the "let's get physical days," I've noticed how this thigh emphasizing pair has reinvented itself to [once] again grab its share of limelight in today's fashion trends. I honestly didn't want to jump into the wagon but since I have no justifiable reason and I wanted to try out something new (or at least something I wore when I was still in elementary and didn't really care), I allowed myself to give in to this leggings trend.
And wow, it's not as bad as I thought! It's actually as comfy and laid back as my favorite denim shorts (less the excessive leg exposure, LOL).
Although there's currently tons of legging prints in the market, I am still a bit scared to go all out prints and neons so I settled with this black and white paisley print [at least for now]. I kept everything else simple so the leggings become the focal point of my outfit. I added bits of colors-- the neon collar tips, purse and ring-- to liven up the black and white.

I realized that choosing the right print for you or a print you know you can comfortably pull off will give your day's get up that instant funky-ness. I am happy with this first attempt, hence I am certain there will be more leggin' lovin' posts! ;)
