In The Fashionista's Closet: Pants on Fire

I'm a liar. I swore I'd never wear jeggings. One, because I hate the word. It's so stupid. This also sums up how I feel about the concept of pajama jeans.

But if you recall, the first jeggings were just leggings done in a denim-ish looking way. Stretchy blue leggings that stretched out and showed the white parts when they were too tight. I've witnessed this many times, usually at my neighborhood Walmart so I know.

But this was before they made these new jeggings that actually look like jeans! Done with buttons and pockets and perfect for wearing with knee high boots! So yes I'm a convert. But I WON'T call them jeggings...

Sweater: Zara

Jeggings Denim Pants: Target
Boots: Juicy Couture

Can we talk about how much I love this little chica from "Reed Between the Lines"? I actually prefer her hair here more than on the show, it looks very "done" onscreen, here it's a little wilder which I love. 

 This is 9 year old Zoe Hendrix who portrays character Alexis Reed on the show.

 My friend Sonya said that Zoe looked like she could be my daughter in this pic. I <3!!!

Read the interview that little Zoe did with Curly Nikki here.

You look fab! Your hair is so pretty and I absolutely love your boots. I hate the word jeggings too, by the way. I wish they would just call them jean leggings like before. Sigh.

I love little Alexis Reed. She is so adorable on the show. I'm going to check the interview out now. Thanks for sharing!

I like this look and your hair is pretty. Jeggings are not all bad, esp the ones that suck the gut in.

Too funny about the jeggings...I said the same thing...never!

Cute! I have yet to own a pair, much less try them on. You make it very tempting to do so! My boyfriend keeps joking about buying me a pair of pajama jeans for Christmas...I told him I would buy him a pair I saw in a random catalog that actually shows the elastic part of men's boxers at the top...LOL!

LOL!!!! Yes, there is a big difference between denim print leggings and actual stretch denim leggings. I have to admit, I love a good jegg..err...um stretch denim legging! They are the perfect kinda skinny...

Umm, this look has a a real Devil May Care, I know I'm sexy kinda vibe. Work it, girl!!!

...and yes, I am pretty sure that little mama is the star of Reed Between the Lines. She is too cute!

So let's try this again! lol @ liar! My bff was dying to get these "jean leggings!" I was like no bueno for me! Big butts and leggings are not good! When I saw her rocking them and they looked like jeans with pockets and all I was like hmmmmm! I may need to give them a try! Gimme that sweater and bracelet!

Baby girl is adorable. I've missed the last two weeks of the show!

Oh I've run into Cherie twice in the last month or two! Fabulous! lol

Somehow the title of this post had me expecting Orange Pants, or some other fall color! Got me there!
I'm so with you on the word jeggings, I'm from Jamaica and there are a lot of words I still have to get used to hearing and saying.
