A few months ago I was invited to a leggings party. For those of you who have never been to one, it’s kind of like a tupperware party but for patterned leggings. As I took in all of the fun and colourful patterns (while the artist/designer in me was bursting with joy) I looked around the room full of mommies going bananas over these pants. I picked up a pair that caught my eye and went to go try them on. As soon as I pulled them over my hips I realized that they were extremely comfortable, more fun than my yoga pants that I practically live in and they fit so well over my mommy curves… I can get used to this! After posting this photo to my Instagram, my followers went nuts asking me to do a post on how to wear patterned leggings. Thus, this project was born. I immediately contacted the leggings manufacturer www.sweetlegs.ca and told them about my post idea. They shipped me a few pairs and I had a blast putting together flattering and comfy outfits, that also work with us curvier mamas. I called up my brilliant photographer friends and we went to town putting together this style piece. This fun fashion item may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I am hooked! It takes my everyday mommy sweats to the next (fun) level!
I love that leggings pull up nice and high. Yes, I am showing my tummy, after having four kids (eight months postpartum with twins), scandal! I love that these outfits hug in all the right places, and have a little more room where you need it. Especially if you are healing from a C-Section.
Each of these looks can work during the day with less jewelry and flats. So comfy!
