Sexy legs and easy fall #fashion with #DRLegwear #CBias

Have you got glimpses of my tweets lately? Well, this fashionista is gearing up for some fall fashion and my staples include sweater dresses with tights or leggings and boots! I typically love different pops of colors but nothing too crazy but if you want the one pair of legging or tights that will go with essentially any outfit, black or dark gray is your color.

So I popped into Duane Reade to take a look. Surprisingly, there was a decent sized display and selection of  hoisery, tights, and leggings. I never would've thought a drug store would have such selection and variety. The prices were affordable as well, hoisery was $6.99, tights  $7.99-$8.99, and leggings $14.99.

I wanted to go with something simple and clean cut, that would easily match any of my outfits. Afterall, a true fashionista knows how to switch up their wardrobe just like that, right? Despite it all though, I need comfort. There's nothing like going around your day being stuck in something gorgeous but so uncomfortable that you'd rather rip it off.

The goal was comfortable, versatile legwear that would not only give my legs that sexy, slimming look (I have Popeye's arms on my legs thanks to my figure skating years.) but also keep my legs warm during fall this year. I spotted microfiber leggings! Seriously? They make everything in microfiber these days and I know I love the feel and comfort microfiber brings so sure, why not?

Then I hit a snag...what? Only 2 left and it was in S/M which was for those 4'10"-5'5" (90-140lbs) and I was in the M/T range of 5'4"-6'0" recommended for those 135-190lbs. So do I get the S/M? It's the right weight range but I have decently long legs. I had to take the risk.

Luckily, they fit just fine. They didn't end up too short so if you're just a bit over the S/M height range but are in that weight category, I think they'll work just fine. I'm 5'6". Of course, it was comfortable, it is microfiber! The material stretched nicely and felt nice and cozy against my skin. I definitely didn't choose wrong. I could dress the leggings up or down, the versatility and possibilities are endless.
JR approved legwear
Even JR gave her little paw of approval! Baby Pom kept jumping at me, wanting to be in the photoshoot! Or maybe, he's trying to tell mom that she looks hot in these leggings! At $14.99, I found the price a bit higher than what I normally pay for my leggings but for the comfort, I would probably buy them again, especially if I'm travelling and need a quick solution!

Take a look at my trip to Duane Reade.

I love those leggings and need some super badly, but didn't know what to get because I wanted something that was not sheer. Thank you

I actually used to wear leggings under my cut off shorts and combat boots back in the early 90's. It was my signature look LOL

@Ghada, LOL, it's because the leggings are hiding them!
