Winning Combination

I am always looking for a new way to wear my cowboy boots and leggings. Both are so comfortable, but I never thought about wearing them together!

My sister and I ran into a friend while shopping who inspired this look. Lauren is pregnant, and she was wearing her leggings WITH her cowboy boots and an open cardigan. Genius! Why had I never thought to put this combination together?!?! Thank you Lauren! Lauren is an interior designer, check her blog out here.

Here’s my disclaimer: I originally had leggings on this morning, but after taking a good look at my leggings I knew I couldn’t take pictures in them. They were bagging out at the knee and looked faded… I’ve had them for awhile. I went to Ann Taylor Loft to get my same Ponte Leggings. They didn’t have them in the store, and the ones they had didn’t past the test (Leggings: Do’s and Don’ts). Then I went to the Gap and had the same problem. I had a great conversation with the Manager, Curtis, at the Rice Village Location about leggings, which once again, reminded me of my style epiphany- check it out here (Style Epiphany: Black Jeggings). So, all of this is to say that I’m actually in jeggings… which really are just as comfortable as leggings.

    Love this Carly! If you’re looking for new leggings, I am pretty much obsessed with my Zella Live-In leggings from Nordstrom.

    I found your blog through Pinterest and the first post I see was your leggings and boots post … funny the first thing I thought was she “has to” live in Texas. I check out your About me and find out you also live in Houston! Love your style 🙂
