Skirted Leggings…

Posted on: January 26, 2015

On my favorite fashion Forum, You Look Fab, 

a lot of the members have been trying out a skirted legging

Free shipping and returns on Eileen Fisher Skirted Ankle Leggings (Regular & Petite) at Nordstrom.com. A modern layered look comes together in one easy, smooth-fitting piece with a short skirt attached to stretchy leggings.

This one is by Eileen Fisher at Nordstroms and the one the members are loving

It’s out of the price range I would spend on such a piece at $138, but no worries.

QVC to the rescue with several versions Here by Legacy for around $30 

I ordered a patterned one and a black one from QVC last week,

and  was inspired to go to my closet and mimic the look..

I chose a thrifted skirt that still had brand new tags on it.   

It’s a great 2 layers with the top one being sheer with circle design, a skirt with fun movement…

Straight skirts and ones with more volume like this all work for this trend. 

I paired it with my new Just Fab Vest and my statement necklace by Susan Graver via QVC

Mine is no longer available as I bought it on clearance, but Here is her current ones…

This outfit really made my heart sing as it fit my love of Ying/Yang

with mix of feminine and flirty , yet structured and edgy..

I loved wearing the flat strappy boots rather than heeled ones.. 

This outfit really gave me that sassy feeling I love…

I swear I just heard the tinkle of my mother and father laughing in heaven in agreement of my spunky and sassy side, which they both found endearing and  greatly nurtured that part of my spirit…

It’s now a week after I began the post and I have my new Legacy skirted Leggings..

When I put this look together , my son took one look and told me I belonged in Ireland..

I had to laugh as I definitely think this look would play well on the streets of Europe…

As you can see this skirt is definitely shorter than my faux look from last week… 
I don’t mind the shorter version, but do think I will mimic the look with other skirt options as well.

 The weight of these legacy is such that it will work well into Spring…

So Dear Readers over to you… What’s your take on the skirted leggings trend? 

I must say that not all skirted leggings are equal and some are very mini and not as appropriate for my age group… I think the Legacy ones are border line length for my age group, but it works for me. Keep in mind that although I am petite height I have longer legs and don’t wear petite bottoms.  

Check this variety  on Amazon for different lengths as well as great prices…

I actually tried to find more examples of this trend on Pinterest to no avail…Angie from You Look Fab did write a feature on them you can read and see pictures Here..

Is this really a way that my peers over 40 can cheat and wear skirts above the knee without being judged?

Not that I care about that judgement myself… I wear skirts above my knee, just not minis.. 

This is look being worn with boots and booties now, but will work with flats in Spring.  

Gratitude

I am grateful that my daughter called me from Boston and chatted with me for over an hour about the goings on there regarding the blizzard and her readiness preparations…

I am grateful that I went to the grocery store today, and was craving junk food, but resisted buying it… I literally circled past the aisle three times debating it and talking myself out of it.. 

I am grateful that I hard boiled eggs yesterday and came home from the grocery store today cooked up veggie soup to keep me on track this week.

I am grateful that I listened to my “angel voice” nagging at me to take my blood pressure last week and that when I saw it was high, that I stopped taking the sudafed 12 hours and Nyquil and that it is now in normal range…

I am grateful that  my husband is taking time tomorrow to get our son private bowling lessons for some extra help before the first competition in April…
