Ballet seems to be the inspiration for a lot of current trends – blush tones, lace up ballet flats and now lace up leggings as well. These leggings are a great way to combine athleisure (as I consider almost every look with leggings to be more athleisure based) and girly-ness. They are also a great piece to pick up for the spring as they are easy to wear with long sleeve tops and bomber jackets at the beginning of spring when the temperatures are still on the lower side and just as easy to wear with any lighter/short sleeved top as well.
I have been pairing mine up with more flowy, comfortable tops as I am very much a believer that if you’re wearing leggings, your shirt should be on the longer side and cover your tuchus. I got my leggings from SheIn (you can find them here) and there’s a few things I want to address with this pair. One, the lace up part of the leggings is very long and I had to alter them to be a more appropriate length for my legs. While some may see this as a disadvantage, I see this as a great thing as someone that is taller can easily snag this pair of leggings without problems. For reference, I am 5’5” and cut off about 6 inches. Another thing about these leggings is they are definitely more on the sheer side. The material is kind of thin which is why the longer shirt part is even more important. That being said, they are very soft and comfortable and very affordable (we are talking under $10) so I would still recommend picking these up.
Another piece of this outfit that I want to focus on is the leopard slip on Keds. I have been wearing these all month and they have definitely become my go-to comfortable shoe for when I know I will be covering some distance. The first time I wore them, I walked around for several miles and there were no blisters, no discomfort. These are definitely great to have for spring, summer and even fall and I highly recommend picking these up. I found these at 6pm and they can be found directly here. I am not surprised I fell in love with these as I have been a huge Keds fan for years and have always loved their shoes for walking around and exploring (they’re my go-to vacation shoe brand as I know I can wear them with dresses, jeans, leggings, you name it).
