I actually own three pairs of jeans so the fact that I’m wearing something colloquially referred to as “jeggings” on Jeans for Genes Day is a little weird, I admit.
But I’m running errands today and felt like wearing something in which I can freely lounge and move and, you know, run.
Yes. I run in kitten heels. Albeit, not very fast.
I know there are people out there who harbor this relentless, angry, hatred towards jeggings, the same kind that makes all of us cringe at those poor clueless souls wearing Crocs or Ugg boots in public (If you do that, stop. Stop immediately.), and for me, I agree, to a degree. Also I like rhyming.
Anyways, there’s a big difference between a pair of jeans that contain 3% elastane and the more famously recognized “jeggings” that consist of >70% spandex. These are not those kind of jeggings, and for an extra percentage worth of elastane in comparison to regular jeans, I’ll happily wear these any day and consider them jeans, contrary to what any label says. It would probably make you all equally horrified to know that I bought these from Supre, too.
Did I also mention that the waist fits me perfectly, though? For those with curves at all, these things hug your hips like nothing else will and will prevent all those annoying gapes that you all have on your conventional jeans. (Slight curve, demi curve, and bold curve, my ass, Levi.)
This is another silver-toned outfit if you haven’t noticed, and I’m wearing one of the badges that I bought way back when my friends and I put in a massive collective order together. Still crazy about my little collection of pins and I’ve practically swapped out all my necklaces for cute brooches. I got sick of my acidic skin tarnishing any costume jewelry I dared to wear.
What I wore:
- Silver Hair Cuff – eBay, $1 (Available in gold or silver)
- Giraffe & Gemstone Badges – AliExpress, 80c
- Boy’s Navy Scarf – Big W, $2
- Silver and White Striped Top – SES, $2
- Silver Mesh Band Watch with Sapphire Face – Target, $6
- Tribal Stitch Belt – Dotti, $6.95
- “Jeggings” – Supre, $20
- Corelli Leather Kitten Heels – Mathers, $9
I’m pretty happy with that. This Winter has been see-sawing between a tropical temperatures and the sub-arctic, so I’m going outside to enjoy the sunshine while it lasts!
As a final note, my birthday coming up in a week’s time–I’m so excited!–so I’ve postphoned my popular AliExpress wishlist post a little bit. So until then, happy Jeans for Genes Day, and don’t forget to give generously!
