Skirted Leggings, How Do I Love Thee?

Let me count the ways.

Just kidding. I'll spare you the epic I prepared mentally.

I was initially skeptical of the quality of Daily Charms products but was assured that if I was discontent with what I received, I was under no obligation or pressure to shill or advertise those products. And while there were a few misses, most of the items I received were decent quality and reasonably priced. I was especially impressed with the skirted leggings, which are better quality (thicker material and more carefully constructed) than many of those in my possession.

The beauty of skirted leggings is this: the ease of wear. It's, in my opinion, the lowest common denominator of loungewear and "presentable" clothing. And while some people find that it crosses the line into activewear, I count that among its many uses.

(these pictures were taken hastily and the only non-blurry full-length one had my hand mid-motion as though I was putting up a sign...I took the liberty of photoshopping a soccer ball into the picture to make it look less--or more--awkward).

  1. Hi, I've never seen skirted leggings before, but you definitely made good use of them! They look comfortable! I only have a few mint pieces and was a little scared the hi-low trend would fade, but I prefer the Mint Green Hi-low skirt- it looks so airy! On the Daily Charms website, I couldn't choose between the Indigo Aurora necklace or the sorta matching purple Hathor bracelet- I love crystal jewelry and magnetic clasps are the best! Thanks for the "contest."

  2. I've always been intrigued by the idea of skirted leggings, and you pulled them off very well.

    I would probably choose the Hot Pink Infinity Scarf, and my favorite item on the site is the "I Heart Thigh-Highs...In Theory" tights.

  3. Hot Pink Scarf, and the Red Cat Ear Crochet Beanie is adorable. -Ryland H.

    Yay for casual wear on blogs! It's always nice to see relaxed outfits rather than dolled up looks everyday.
    Question: I can never tell what is proper etiquette for leggings. I wear running leggings on their own but never knit leggings without something covering my bum. But I've definitely seen women wearing barely there leggings as pants and I never know what to think about that.

    1. I am a fairly self-conscious person so would never think to wear leggings as pants (though there have been incidences (2?) in the past when I inadvertently committed this fashion faux pas). But my girlfriends and I agree unanimously that leggings are not pants and should not be worn in place of pants (unless one's bum is reasonably covered, as you mentioned). Athletic leggings (of a reasonable thickness and tightness) are perfectly fine in the right setting, imo.

      Having said that, I don't think it's ever appropriate to pass judgment on other people's fashion choices (even though the temptation can be overpowering at times). There are always extenuating circumstances or just a general unawareness. I selfishly want people to extend me the same courtesy. :)

  23. Definitely the hot pink infinity scarf. It's cold here and my entire student's storage was burnt down during summer - I tried for insurance, but the owner just declared his company bankrupt and pretty much ran. As a student, I'm on a tight budget and haven't gotten a lot of replacements for my wardrobe aside from necessities and would really appreciate the scarf to get through this cold! And I really like the pop of pink colour - so chic.

    My favourite from daily charms is I-Heart-Tight-Highs.... In Theory. It's a lovely looking tight with the right combination of playful without being tacky and I've only gotten black ones (due to my limited budget and burnt down storage again). Would be nice to own pretty tights. Plus this can be dressed up or down both for uni classes and a night out/afternoon brunches with my girlfriends :D

  24. I like the way you paired the skirted leggings. I've seen them from time to time in Asian magazines and websites but never in "real life." I like the You've Cat To Be Kitten Me Right Meow Stockings. So cute. I would pick the mint Hi-Low skirt love that color and style for the upcoming spring. Hurry up Spring! : D
