outfit of the day(bird): huggies




dress~ thrifted
shirt~ F21
snood~ gift
belt~ H&M
leggings~ Heartbreaker
socks~ Opening Ceremony, gift
booties~ thrifted

my sisters and i all have these leggings. i wear them all of the time. they are the best leggings ever, seriously. they are thick enough that you can't see through them but thin enough to wear under anything. they don't stretch out, so you can wear them many times before washing (what? don't look at me like that!) and they are lined with fleece. yes, i did say, lined with fleece! so, they are super warm and cozy. megan found them at heartbreaker and then emailed all of us about how awesome they were. so, of course, we sent our sister, izzy (otherwise known as our personal leggings buyer), to buy us each a pair. izzy tried them on and immediately fell in love with their coziness. she sent a mass sister email (we do that a lot. like a lot a lot.) and said, "these aren't leggings. they are like a hug for each of my legs." and so, of course, we started calling them our "huggies". because, you know, that's not weird at all. now i have to be careful when i talk about my leggings in public. because you get odd looks from strangers when, as an adult, you say any of the following:

~ i wish i had two pairs of huggies so i could wear one when this pair is dirty.
~ my huggies were still wet so i couldn't wear them today.
~ i wonder if they make huggies in different colors? because a blue or a green pair might be super cute!
~ do my huggies look funny tucked into my socks?
~ do these huggies make my butt look big?

yes. this is my life. i talk about my leggings. a lot. and then i write blog posts about them. fascinating, i know!

  3. I have huggies in several different colours. I picked them up super cheap at Value Village, new. ( I have no idea why they sell them new there) They really are the best for the cold.

  7. My mom recently got me a pair of fleece lined leggings and I actually haven't worn them yet since it's been SO cold. Maybe I'll wear them under my jeans, haha.

  15. Nora I adore you! I was literally belting out laughter at each phrase that sounded so funny with the word Huggies instead of Leggings. OMyGosh!!!

    I have to say I haven't been here much this week because I have been off scouting out new blog-land territory. forgive? I am always loyal to my little two birds, always. I'll be back more, I will. Thank you for you fun comments at my house/blog.

    I love your pattern matching in this post. A.W.E.S.O.M.E. !!!

  16. Those leggings sound awesome. It is hard to finsd leggings that are the right length, and aren't see through.

  17. A good pair of leggings is hard to find - not too thick, not see through. I think I'm going to need to get over to Heartbreaker so I can feel my legs being hugged.:)
