SAHM Style: Cheetah Leggings | Thriftanista in the City


SAHM Style: Cheetah Leggings

Warning! I'm in cheetah leggings. Once you look, it cannot be unlooked. I have gone back and forth over the wearing of leggings as pants. Admittedly, they are super comfy and so easy to throw on with the elastic waist I love so much. It's perfect SAHM attire. However, with the absence of pockets or a fly aren't they just tights?

In order to pass them off as pants, consider:

1. Covering your girly bits or having some room in the crotch area. In other words, say no to camel toe.

2. Making sure your leggings are really thick. Not sure if they are? Take a camera pic of yourself with the flash on. You'll see what everyone else is seeing. Raise your hand if you've seen butts and underthings in tights worn as pants. *raises hand*

These leggings aren't really for hanging out at the playground with the Lululemon yoga pants wearing, Starbucks cup clutching crew. They're a little on the sexy mama side. These are more appropriate for light errand running and if you happen to find an afternoon dance party (feel free to throw your own), you're all set.

I found this animal print dream during one of my thrift adventures. I spotted (ha ha) a shiny animal print over in the mens' section. I continued shopping but kept seeing them out of the corner of my eye and decided to mosey on over for a look. I'm so glad I did. 

80s spandex leggings worn as pants

In my hands, I had a pair of high waist, super stretchy 80s spandex leggings with Spanx like qualities. When I wear them nothing jiggles. All of that in addition to having a cheetah print! A dream come true. They don't make them like this anymore. I had to have them despite my leggings as pants views.

As a fan of anything animal print, this look is amazing! I love the boots too. LOL @ covering your lady bits. I agree! And although I'm not a SAHM, leggings are a BIG part of my wardrobe!

These don't show me any bits that I don't want to see, so they pass. I was checking a lovely lady in to the hotel the other day and she had on black, thin, sheer SHEER leggings as pants. Everyone could see he black though and lady parts. The guys I work with had to pick their jaws up out of the floor! (She was really good looking but I don't need to see where your babies came from.)

I own the same leggings when I was younger and used them for ice skating. I wish they still.had Parklane stores around. They were incredibly awesome. What a great find! I love them!

The 80s cheetah print leggings are perfect! Now I'm feeling inspired to thrift shop for animal prints.
