Weekend Review: Partying in Lace Leggings

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was good! It was a busy weekend filled with family parties.  Saturday I went to a family party for my cousins daughter.  The usual dilemma came to mind...what am I going to wear.  I had a few outfits in mind, one of them involved wearing a pair of lace leggings I got courtesy of Jens Fashion Plus. I had been contemplating how am I going to wear the lace leggings.  A few other bloggers have done outfit post wearing lace leggings so I had a few ideas in mine.  Often I struggle with the question of dressing appropriately for my age and/or situation. Not sure why, but sometimes its a issue I worry about. Will I be dressed appropriate for the event, fearing of  looking out of place and being judged. Not sure what it is, maybe it was the way I was raised, or a cultural thing. Questioning my self if this outfit was appropriate.  When I first received the lace leggings from Jen, my mental outfit involved a tulle skirt with a bustier and the lace leggings. How Madonna of me! LOL Well that would have been great back in the 80's or in my teens, now not so much. After a couple of hours I finally came up with a good mix of appropriate, stylish and comfortable party outfit.  I loved the added touch the lace leggings added to my dress.  I could have worn regular leggings or tights, but the lace gave it a more interesting and feminine touch. If you have been wanting to try out the lace legging trend, totally recommend it. The lace leggings from Jen Fashion Plus are very comfy with a wide elastic waist band. The sizing was good, the leggings have a good stretch, enough to fit just right with out sagging at the knees, yet not too tight. So go check out Jens Fashion Plus to get your own pair of lace leggings.  I think I'll be wearing the lace leggings with many more outfits, love them!

So do you ever wonder or struggle with the idea of dressing appropriately for your age or place?  I hope I am not alone in this dilemma!

  14. I have the same problem with trying to look up to date and trendy, without looking like I'm trying to be 16 again. I don't want to look dowdy, but I don't want to look like a teenybopper either. I think you pulled off a nice balance with this outfit. You look like a grown woman, but a fun and stylish one!

    P.S. I added your blog to my blogroll, I hope that's ok!
