My Sister Is Trying to Make Me Trendy


Did you know I have sister? 
Well I do, and she's awesome. She is eleven years younger than me and eleven times cuter. She's got that gorgeous hair that looks great curly or straight; tall, skinny legs; and an excellent fashion sense. 

And yes, I do indeed ask fashion advice from my fifteen-year-old sister. She knows what's up.

She also makes amazing funny faces, but that's not really the point here. 
The point is my Christmas outfit this year was picked out by my sister, and thanks to her, I am now the proud owner of a pair of jeggings. 

Say what? Yes, jeggings. Me, the scorner of skinny jeans and tights and twitter, now has all of the above. I opened the box, and my mom must have seen my look of confusion. At first maybe I thought my mom confused the boxes, and I accidentally opened my sister's present, but no. Those jeggings were all mine.

Jeggings. They're leggings that look like jeans! 
I want to know who thinks of these things.
The other oddity is the cardigan. According to my sister, extra-large cardigans are in. Apparently no one wants to wear clothes that fit anymore, which works out good for me since I buy all my pants too big on accident. 

Anyway, I wore this outfit to work earlier this week. I saw our creative director, Jarod, as soon as I walked in. He looked at me, and I instantly said, "AreyoulookingatmyoutfitbecauseIknowit'sweird."
And he was like, "Um, no. I wasn't looking at your outfit. Calm down. And talk slower."
And I was like, "Oh, well good. Don't look at it."

But of course after that everyone was looking at it.
I love when I draw attention to things I don't want to draw attention to. 

I felt awkward most of the day because I was wearing an outfit that I wasn't used to. Do you know what I'm talking about? The whole time I was telling myself, "Self, be confident. You're hot." Except I wasn't using the word hot because I don't really like that word. 
Ultimately, I decided that even though jeggings still freak me out, this outfit was actually quite comfortable, and I will be wearing my new outfit again soon.

So there you have it. Jeggings. Because my sister is trying to make me trendy.

If there was ever a girl with a skinny rear who could ROCK jeggings, it's you. Seriously, it's like wearing pants without wearing pants, but technically you're wearing pants...

I live in them these days, and my rear is NOT skinny. I bought a mustard yellow pair (!!!)

What I'm trying to say is that you definitely look hot, I mean, trendy. ;)

I have some jeggings and I love them! They are so comfy and stretchy...I just wish they had pockets or a faux zipper on the front because I have to wear shirts that cover the front...I think it looks weird.
