Lately I have a fondness for black leggings. Velvet, ponté knit, classic cotton, it makes no difference. I could tell you that it’s because it makes it so easy to wear boots and booties. I could tell you that black is a slimming color most needed on the lower half of my body (namely, my chubby legs). But mainly, it’s because they’re stretchy, super comfortable, and allow for eating large meals in one sitting. Guess what I’ll be wearing this Thanksgiving?

I’m nothing if not honest with you guys.

If you’re looking for a pair of boots this winter that are comfier than a pair of well-loved sneakers, you need to check out these Leonie boots by Tsubo. Hands down the comfiest pair I’ve ever tried! They’re true to size, if you’ll be ordering them online. I’ll be talking about them in a favorites video very soon. :)

P.S. I apologize for forgetting to take off my darn hair band off of my wrist before these photos. Ick!

    I have a confession to make: I don’t own a single pair of leggings. I’m also a thick-thigh-chick (darn you soccer!) and I’m always afraid that leggings are going to highlight, rather than camouflage, the mass that is going on south of my waist. It’s definitely a mental block and I’m working on it.

    But now that you’ve posted a cute outfit and with GIDGET! How can I say no to leggings??!?!? Well played.

      All you have to do is balance out the legging with a longer tunic blouse or sweater! Boom! Thighs be gone!

      Lookin’ good, as per usual, Kristina! ;)

        Can I get, “Boom! Thighs be gone!” on a bumper sticker?!?!?!

    I LOVE the skull shirt! I agree – leggings are a true gift to us girls from the universe. Find the right pair and you’re chic and comfy at the same time! By the way – Gidget needs to be in as many outfit post pics and You Tube vids as possible! ;)

    Look at Gidget, warming up for the camera! Those leggings look like the epitome of comfort. Need them in my life!

    • http://prettyshinysparkly.com/ Kristina Braly

      Gidget is such a friggin’ natural in front of the camera. Other dogs I’ve had growing up would flinch away from the site of a black camera looming, as if it would steal their soul. She looks right at it, expectantly!
