Ahhh leggings. I think they were permanently glued to me for…like a year, if I’m honest. And yes, they were pants. Just stop it. Everyone knew they were the best.
Until they weren’t.
I lost some baby weight and wanted a change in wardrobe. Also, leggings don’t pair well with the Charleston humidity.
But I had standards. Like a drawstring waist, obvs.
I decided this style of super light and flowy soft pants were the way to go. But I’d rather spend my money on Charleston food and baby books than silk pants that are going to be covered in toddler yogurt finger prints as soon as I try them on.
Old Navy has not necessarily been one of my go-to brands in the past, but I saw these in the hunt for a substitute and gave them a try. They are life. Loose but still flattering. Airy. So comfortable and still stylish.
Also, can we please get more real life style options on blogs? It amazes me how many ultra-high price tags I see. Is anyone covering the regular options for us regular ol’ moms?! I love to buy smart and small (read: quality and expensive), but sometimes you have to fill in the wardrobe gaps with some toddler + budget friendly options. Thanks, Old Navy.
I live in the black, but just ordered the navy pair as well. They can be dressed up or down, look great with flats or heels, and any tops – slightly tucked in or loose and casual.
Favorite discovery – order the tall!
Even if you aren’t tall, these are ever-so slightly cropped, and the extra length is awesome for me (almost 5’7). I wash on gentle cycle and line dry.
