charley 5.0 jeggings

Are you superstitious? It’s Friday the 13th!

I’m superstitious about speaking too soon. For a long time I was thinking that I wouldn’t like jeggings so much, that they were a fad, but, I spoke too soon. Charley 5.0 sent a box of jeggings to try out for the eat, sleep, denim blog…and to tell the truth, I’ve been wearing jeggings all week, and there are no plans to wear other types of clothing anytime soon. It’s worse than my legging addiction, because at least with leggings they kind of felt like lounging clothes, clothes one shouldn’t leave the house in. Jeggings, on the other hand, feel like really, really, really comfortable pants. I may need an intervention soon.

And while it’s Friday…this song has been in my head…

Thanks Kiri for helping with photos today!

I just tried jeggings recently (like you, I was skeptical) and while some brands weren’t so ideal, I loved a couple of them. They’re so comfy!! I can sleep in them if I wanted to. haha.

OH I have! A couple of times this week I fell asleep on the sofa.

LOL! Hey at least you don’t need to buy as many PJs anymore…just roll off the sofa and out the door you go…

Oh dear, I haven’t tried jeggings yet. Sounds like it is the point of no return - need to check if this brand is sold in the UK, I don’t want to end up in saggy-bummed jeggings!

i’m totally with you on the jeggings thing. so wrong, but so right! i love them. i just wish they weren’t called “jeggings,” but i also can’t resist the gimmicky splendor of the name! haha!

haha, yeah, i know what you mean, jeggings is such a ridiculous word, and denim leggings… too long. if they had their own name, it’d be all over it.

I’ve yet to get a pair of jeggings myself but I think that just might be my next purchase. I’m thinking once I get a pair I might never go back to jeans!

Your photos are always so great! I’m not quite on board with jeggings yet. Then again, it took me forever to accept leggings.

So glad I read this-I’ve been skeptical as well about jeggings-thinking they would be like leggings but just not as well-fitting. You look adorable in yours, I may have to re-think this. Love your blog, btw! Hope you’ll stop by mine-I just interviewed Nina Garcia, you might enjoy.

oh no, i think jeggings are even better fitting, they hold stuff in much better than leggings. take my word.
and congrats on your interview!
