Slowly… No sudden movements. Just step away from the computer…
That’s it… Eeeasy does it.
Okay? Now take a deep breath, and repeat after me: “I will not buy Pajama Jeans.”
I will not buy Pajama Jeans.
I will not buy Pajama Jeans!
In a way, that little intro up there is based on a true (ish) story. You see, I came within a tabby’s hair of placing an order for a pair of Pajama Jeans the other day. That commercial came on, and I was just about to click the order button online when in walked Tabs.
I guess he read the look in my eye because a sour expression crossed his face…
Granted, he makes that face a lot, but it was enough to give me pause (paws?).
I didn’t order a pair of Pajama Jeans that day, but I have been on the market for a respectable pair of stretchy pants — something with a little edge to ‘em that won’t be mistaken for yoga pants.
Enter the BCBG Cancetta leggings, stretchy matte fabric pants with faux leather panels and a mid-rise waist. If it weren’t for these pants, there’s a good chance I’d be wearing a pair of Pajama Jeans right now.
Comfy? You know it! Fashionable? I think so. Best of all, you can throw ‘em in the washing machine.
Here I’m wearing them dressed down with ankle boots, a slouchy sweater (also by BCBG) and the Zella Gathered Tote, but they’re also easy to dress up, like with a crisp, white tuxedo shirt, black blazer and black patent-leather high heels.
I can’t seem to find them online this morning, but here’s a similar style, the Caragh Pleather Combo Legging.
One thing I’ve noticed about these is that they run a little long on me, and they’re not that form fitting around my knees and ankles, so you might want to try a size smaller than you normally would if you want them to really hug your curves.
I don’t know though… I kind of like that they’re a little loose in places because it makes them look more like regular pants.
Tweet! — as in the singer, not the social media bird
Good mornin’! Happy hump day. How’s it going over there?
Sooo, I turned on that randomizer thing-a-ma-bobber on iTunes this morning, and it got on a string of songs from Tweet.
Remember her? She’s an R&B singer. I have her 2002 album, Southern Hummingbird.
I hadn’t listened to it in ages, but I really got into it this morning. It’s a mix of ballads and mid-tempo dance songs. Now I remember why I liked it so much 10 years ago…
Hope you have a good one today. Drop me a line, and let me know how you’re doing.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
