I bought some leggings today and I cannot believe how COMFY they are. [ovaltine emoticon]

Surely something so delicious can't be fashionable? No pain, no gain and all that. grin

I have not yet ventured into The Wider World wearing them though as don't have a long enough top.
Seriously, where are you buying your tops to go with yer leggings?

(and no, that jegging/lean thing is just wrong wrong wrong I tell you)
Online preferred as live in sticks.
TIA grin

white stuff gave me one last year
and the dreaded boden contrast tunic( like a long tank top see ebay)
and a boden button Henley

think of what sweater style suits you and elongate it

Am absolutely not a fashionista, but am a lover of the leggings!

I have a fab long white shirt which I wear with a cinch belt and heels for evening or leather belt and flat black boots for a day time look. I also have a long striped shirt which I bought from New Look, a flowery dress from Dorothy Perkins and a couple of long jumpers all of which I wear with leggings and Ugg boots. I heart leggings. (I heart jeggings and treggings too, though I hate the words!)

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 06-Oct-09 22:36:41

I like the kew one

And the M&S one

Have a few white stuff bits, I will look there again.

Any more for any more??

I bought this in the sale yesterday &pos=PDP_rvi%5F2%5Ftext which is lovely.

I have no idea what to wear it with tho as I refuse to wearing leggings/jeggings/skinny jeans.

This is also nice e=UTF8&node=&m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&keywords=&mnSBrand=core&size=9&rh=n%3A308664031%2Cp_36%3AGBP5-GBP9.99& page=1
I know it looks goddamn awful in the picture but the trick is to wear it with a long white shirt and not tie the waistcoat just let it hang loose. IYSWIM

i think the waistcoat might be a bit penguin with leggings libra.

olivia i find the trick is to wear something reasonably substantial / structured on top half, otherwise one is a bit pyjamas. that is why jeggings are good, also they hold you in a bit more and don't give vpl. i am sure you will graduate to them soon.

a bit dressier than tunics

wow i have no idea what you look like.

Fishie love that carnival one from wallis - my fave dress that everyone comments on is from there, was a complete fluke, I was in there sheltering from the rain! grin
I am having real probs with arcadia websites atm, had 70 quid of stuff in my Dotty P basket earlier and it disappeared. angry
What do I look like?
5ft7, with long legs and good boobs, but size 14ish and slightly apply tummy [need to go to gym emoticon]
