By the time you all start reading this post, i should be on the road heading to wherever this next chapter takes us. Yes lovely people, you read right. We are leaving Alberta  for good. No more mountain views and awesome back drops...j/k, but maybe this other place may just be so much  better. I will be on the road for a few days and i plan on documenting this trip the best possible way i can. I will be posting here for sure, on all my social media platforms too, visiting blogs and responding to comments.

To the big question of the day? Why do so many hate leggings  and so many like me also love them? Lately, i feel like there is a movement fighting hard to see this trend die by all means and be buried for good. I like them but at the same time i have had second thoughts about them too. Especially when it depends on where i am going or for what occasion it is. Although, i am wearing a pair of "skinny pants" here, made from leather and lycra, they do feel like leggings...aren't they all the same? I love the fact that they make you look so much slimmer, they look smart on you and i think when worn appropriately they could be a perfect wardrobe staple that shouldn't be restricted to the four walls of your home. I could totally wear this outfit to a lunch date, the movies and day out with friends. Who knows, maybe i will be singing a different tune in a few months but for now they are good for me.

Your thoughts on this trend? Kill it or keep it?

Like i always say, life is a journey..... and i am happy to live it. This is my journey.

Well, good luck on the move doll & safety too. I look forward to seeing where you'll be next, what adventure :) I don't mind leggings I wear them myself, I find them relaxing when I am inside or need to go shopping quickly. But, I think some of the problems are people wearing the wrong ones for them. I've seen leggings that on one person are lovely and another person were completely wrong - in size and style. The girl was a more fuller figured gal - beautiful, but the material for these leggings were pretty much see through on her due to the stretching & it wasn't a good thing to realize when out and about for her. So maybe some sort of guidelines or how to or what suits this shape kind of thing would be good. And certainly not wearing them all the time, as that becomes boring to see people wear them every day - we lose the fun in dressing :) I think you look fantastic in them xx

Mag KP said...

If someone has a figure like you - they should keep it. If not - well, I would recommend to think it over. You look stunning!
Have a nice trip and please inform us about the progress :)

Haha, I wrote the same thing about leggings - why all the hatred :D? I think leggings are awesome and will keep wearing them (obnoxious, colorful print ones!) just to annoy people >:) ! You look great and I would mistake those leggings to skinny pants.

Busola Coutts said...

I do have a couple of pairs too that i wear around the house and to some quick errands too. You are right about wearing the wrong ones and wearing them a little too much. That can turn anyone off leggings for sure :). Thank you so much Kizzy for your input.

Busola Coutts said...

Aww, you are such a sweetheart :). Thanks a lot.

Busola Coutts said...

Hahaha, i am not the only one getting this vibe too. Some reasons are pretty valid though and maybe others are whatever. You are just hilarious Lara, wear what makes you happy dear :). Thanks a lot!

Lizzy said...

lovely as always!

Madame Amrose said...

I was against them for so long, but i do enjoy them in Winter. I don't really ever do pants, so it was nice to not have to retire my dresses when it got cold. That said, I won't mourn them going back into the trend closet for 20 years or so again.

Kurves said...

You look Great here and the colors are are my fave. I am a jeggings/leggings kind of gal and I want to see them stay around for a long time. Good Luck on the move and I look forward to more of your posts. . .

Legging are perfect for casual days and they are super comfortable. They work well for me and even if they are not in style, I would still wear them for that reason.

You look amazing! Such a beautiful view.


Kim A. said...

you know, i really love your attitude! you embrace change. some people resist it. there will be a different beauty where you're going, but you will find it (because there's beauty everywhere). you're OPEN to it! good luck on your move and I will definitely follow along. i love leggings! as with anything, some people wear them wrong (style them wrong). ANYthing can be styled wrong, whether it's designer or not. you styled yours beautifully. i say KEEP.


Indian Savage said...

Wowwww you look sexy and stunning Busola!!!

Lenya said...

What! No more snow pics with you wearing summer clothes?!! I am devastated ;-) Curious where your next stop may be darling. I am sure it will be another gorgeous place because of you. You lighten up every spot Busola. Well I am all for leggings, and I don't want them to go away. Just look at you you look gorgeous, but then you look gorgeous in everything. I love leggings and I am not going to part with them because they may be out dated or whatever. Nope no way. I love to have the latest thing, of course I do, who won't but I also love to wear what I like and I don't give a toss if it is out or in. If I like it it's *in*, though.
kisses gorgeous and safe journey

Claudia P. said...

OMG you are leaving Alberta? I wish you all the best in your next adventure, you deserve only the best!!! Let me know how you are doing. How is your little girl?
I love leggings at home and also love to pair it with a nice longer shirt or top and wear it for a nice lunch or for a more simple look. They are so comfy and it's perfect when you have small children to run after.:) You rock this look as always. It's always a pleasure coming here and see your beautiful looks and gorgeous photos.
Take care and keep in touch.

Bella Pummarola said...

I think it all depends on how you wear them. They can look really chic or really trashy... You are totally rocking these, as always!


Stella said...

Wonderful colors again! You're so wonderfully every time I visit your blog!

Very nice look!!!! Did not you cold??


Beauty said...

You look so good! And with the way you styled this pants so beautifully, I vote "No" to ending the leggings trend.

Nice combination of colors

Style by Alina said...

The leggings look gorgeous on you girl! Loving this look and I will miss the majestic backgrounds in your photos. Best wishes to you wherever you move babe. <3


Ladyofashion said...

I love both of these stripes! For my style, I think leggings are fine as long as they are leggings, not trousers, because I like to wear them with something over it, because I love to layer. They look great on you! And, if it makes you happy, I think that's all that matters in the end! :)

elle said...

Oh I wouldn't listen to the trend makers here. If you love something and it looks so great on you, as it does, then just wear it! I happen to love these on you and I love the combination of all the stripes. I'm excited about your move and hope to hear about more of it in future posts. Kisses

Aileen O. said...

Leggings aren't going anywhere. As long as the tush and pantylines are covered they're good for anywhere especially with the variety of leggings out there. Love this look :)


BookwormsCloset said...

I think it depends on how you style them! They can bring elegance into an outfit - like in your pics!

StyleDiaryByOsy said...

Definite keep!

Milu said...

Keep it! lol leggins get you out of some "I don't know what to wear" dilemmas, they are comfy and you get different styles such as the ones you are wearing right now. Just one thing, I'm all for leggins as long as you can see through them!
I'm loving your blog and I can't wait to read more about your road trip and new adventures. I invite you to visit my blog and let me know if you would like to follow each other!
