I am constantly on the hunt for cute outfits with leggings. My legging collection has gotten out of hand. Mainly because I have recently converted to the “leggings are acceptable as pants” club. For years I have looked down on leggings as pants wearers but this year things have changed for me.
Maybe I am older and wiser.
Maybe I have lowered my standards.
Maybe it’s because I have discovered fleece lined leggings and I just can’t get enough of them.
I wear them all day and then I wear them to bed.
If loving fleece-lined leggings is wrong I don’t want to be right.
And because of my crack-like addiction to leggings – here is what my legging drawer has turned in to.
I am so lucky to have a husband who, although, sits on the couch and watches football all day on Sunday, he manages to offset this activity by plowing through all of our laundry while he watches football.
And putting away my clean leggings can be rather confusing for him.
Do they go in the sweatpants drawer?
With the jeans?
So I was determined to find a better legging storage solution.
A regular hanger was too large and the leggings always bunch up on one side.
I liked these hangers as a solution, but hanging the leggings vertically takes up too much closet real estate space.
When I went back into the closet to ponder my legging dilemma I stumbled upon some of my son’s children’s hangers and it was a magical moment for me.
Kids hangers are the perfect size for leggings. And we have a million of them! But if you don’t have little ones at home you can purchase a bundle of them for $1.00.
Now all of my leggings are out of the dresser drawer, stored wrinkle free, and are in optimal viewing sight when choosing which ones I would wear each and every day.
Now that we have found the absolute best way to store your leggings you just need to decide what team you are on when it comes to wearing pants as leggings. And I have created a wonderful flow chart to help you talk through your feelings on this.
How did you fare on the flow chart? Legging lover or hater?
UPDATE: Lots of people have asked me where you can purchase fleece lined leggings. I have heard Target has them but they are hard to find in stock. There is also a great deal at No More Rack where you can buy 6 pairs of leggings for $29.00! You can also get $10.00 your first purchase and free shipping on your first order by clicking HERE. It says to “join” but that just means they email you their daily deals which you can then just unsubscribe afterwards!
