Finding THE PERFECT pair of leggings is no simple task….especially when your not exactly a “sample sized” sort of girl. These were recommended by a blogger I follow (Thank You Shaeffer) and she is tiny so I was skeptical to say the least. They are from Nordstrom though and they have free shipping and returns and some of the best customer service on the planet so I figured it was at least worth a try.
OH MY HECK…I simply don’t have words for them. They aren’t too thin…nobody wants to see through your leggings. They have an extra wide waistband that DOESN”T…I repeat…DOESN’T roll down after you’ve had them on for more than a minute even if you have a bit of a gut going on. They aren’t too tight in the crotch area…not that anyone will see that area because it will ALWAYS be covered up with a tunic or sweater because #leggingsareNOTpants. They really are just the perfect pair of leggings….my search is over and yours should be too. Go right now and order them in every color….YES they are that great. Like a fool I only ordered them in black to start with but the charcoal and brown are both on the way as we speak!!! YAHOO!!
So anyway…now that I have the perfect pair of leggings I knew it was time to write a post about them and what better time than to kick off my 30 Days of Fall Fashion. I don’t know about where you live, but in my neck of the woods Fall has arrived in full force. The leaves are changing, the air is much cooler, and there is pumpkin spice everything everywhere you look. I could not be happier!! I absolutely adore Fall…it is cool enough for scarves and sweaters but there are still plenty of days that are warm enough to drive my little car with the top down (sometimes with the heat on)…..bliss!!! Besides that….I love anything pumpkin spice so Fall is like a little piece of Heaven on Earth in my book!!
I bought this Glamour Farms tunic a few weeks ago when another blogger I follow posted it. It looked adorable on her itty bitty self and so I decided to give it a go. So here is my Pinsperation…..

I have to be honest, I wasn’t in love with it at first. The fabric was thinner that I had anticipated and it was a bit longer than I had thought it would be. Of course looking at the picture now I am not sure why I didn’t expect it to be long…duh!! I tried it on with skinny jeans and thought about returning it, but hesitated a bit too long and boy am I glad I did. Once I put it on with the Perfect Pair of Leggings I fell in love with it. These Leggings might just be magical…no wait…my thighs are still looking like hams in them so while they are still perfect they clearly are not magical…darn!!!
Here is how it turned out on me….
| Tunic Top | Leggings | Necklace | Boots |
It is loose enough to hide the lumpy bits without making me look like I am swimming in it and long enough to cover my booty. It looks like the tunic is only available in Curvy Sizes now. Because the fabric is on the thin side I added a long tank underneath. I added the scarf from my latest Stitch Fix, my Stella and Dot Rebel Necklace and my black riding boots from Old Navy. Comfy, cozy and pulled together…perfect for a Fall day!!!
Have a Great One All!!
