Leggings have stirred up their fair share of controversy in recent months. From girls getting banned from school or being required to change to bloggers taking an anti-leggings stance, leggings seem to be the most serious offense that someone can do when it comes to getting dressed for the day’s events. In an effort to show that leggings can be stylish and have a perfectly acceptable place in the normal wardrobe, I thought I would give myself a leggings challenge this summer. How could I take crazy patterned leggings and give them new life? If you’re a fan of leggings, this post is for you. If you’re not? I don’t care because I’m a proud leggings wearer and supporter.
Summer’s hashtag: #LeggingsWearDontCare.
Because I can’t walk around caring what other people think about my outrageous attire.
Every so often, I’ll share my outfit combinations and where I snagged certain items from. The awesome things about leggings is that the sky’s the limit and I encourage you to determine your own personal style. Disclaimer: I’m not getting paid to do this, nor do I claim to have any style sense for real.

Leggings: Baby Dolls Plus || Shirt: Actually a dress from Kmart that I ruched up to create a shirt that matched perfectly || Black mini cardigan: Don’t remember, it’s old || Necklace: Charming Charlie
These geometric patterned leggings are soft and love the bright funky colors. Paired with a sandal, I felt dressed up enough, but also comfortable.

From the first part of my challenge, I found leggings to be versatile and fun. I received compliments on the funky patterns and colors and no one told me to my face that they looked hideous. Win-Win! Triple bonus? I felt so ridiculously comfortable and most of the time, I felt like I was walking around in pajamas, but I felt more put together than I have in a long time.
