I gotta say, I found some pretty great things!
You guys need to go HERE and check out a fabulous new blog that is making it’s debut today!
It’s called Everyday Cheer, and it’s a collaborative effort between 8 super popular bloggers,
and one of them is Shay! SO COOL! They are going to cover topics ranging from DIY projects, to getting dinner on the table, to gift guides, to party planning… pretty much everything you’ve ever wanted in a blog!

I felt it was my civic responsibility to find a “GOOD QUALITY PAIR OF LEGGINGS” to help fulfill the #3 requirement for ladies everywhere. I’m a giver.
Because no matter how good the rest of your outfit is, if the leggings are bad,
then THE WHOLE THING is bad.
I talked about several different pairs of leggings (all with great reviews) on the initial post, but I hadn’t yet decided which pair to get for myself.
If you’re freaking out over the COMPLETE AND TOTAL AWESOMENESS of the look on the right, I totally get it. You should be freaking out. In fact, I would be worried about you if you weren’t freaking out. Stay tuned for details on that outfit.
usually too tight in the leg, too long in the leg and too constricting
in the waist. None of that exists in this Hue ultra wide waistband
legging. I bought four pair, two black, one gray and one navy. Versatile
and warm, excellent with booties and tunic tops.
DID YOU HEAR THAT?
This chick isn’t even normally like leggings, and she bought FOUR pair!
BLOG UPDATE! I got these next three messages from sweet readers after they read this post and I wanted to share them:
been following your blog for a few months now, and I LOVE it! I’ve
bought several of the pieces you’ve recommended and I love everything.
But I wanted to tell you that I really really LOVE the Hue extra wide
waistband leggings. I got mine in the mail on Friday, and I wore them on
Saturday from 4:30am until midnight. It was a long day of traveling,
tailgating…etc. and they held up SO well! No stretching or gaping and
they were super comfy. It sounds like you and I are about the same size
and the small was perfect. A little long, but under boots it’s no big
deal. I’m a stay at home mom of a 4 year old and a 9 month old and I
know I will LIVE in these things all winter. I just ordered the gray
ones this morning since the black ones were so great. Keep up the good
Funny thing about the “blardigan”- the people that make it also make baby blankets!
We received the blankets as gifts when both my babies were born and I
tell you what- softest/best blanket, EVER! I’m SO glad that company
finally figured out how to make it into a wearable piece of clothing!
Totally ordering it right now…
Good call on making these leggings a MUST HAVE. I have had a gray pair
and a black pair for about a year and a half and they still look brand
new. This is saying a lot since I wear them at least once a week. Best
$40ish ever spent!
And if you don’t believe me, BELIEVE Abby and Meg and Cori!
And when you put the leggings in your cart, you HAVE to put either THIS scarf or THIS scarf in the cart too. They are only $20, and they are the perfect layering piece to pile on while wearing the leggings. And since they are both infinity, they are totally no fuss!
And listen, even if you don’t think you are a “leggings person”, I feel strongly that you need to give these a try. They are under $40, and ordering a pair is NO RISK.
With Nordstrom’s FREE SHIPPING and FREE RETURNS, you have nothing to lose! And if you ARE a leggings person, even if you already have a pair you like,
I still think you need to try these babies for yourself.
Your leggings future could be kicked up like 1,000 notches.
Even if you don’t wear them out like I plan to with boots and layers,
you can wear them at home with hooded sweatshirts.
And think about for travel this holiday season!
Car trips, airplane trips, whatever!
AND I LOVE LOVE LOVE it in the grey too!
grey and white striped long tank (very old, think it was from Target)
It would have been TOTALLY boring without the scarf, right? The scarf added just the right amount of interest and color to make the whole outfit work!
(It actually comes from the lingerie department, but don’t let that confuse you. TRUST ME on this when I say you need this for outerwear.)
That’s Shay. Cuddling the cardigan in the middle of the mall food court.
And if you think it looks cozy, YOU SHOULD FEEL IT!
I really can’t do this BLARDIGAN justice by telling you how soft and cuddly it is.
HOWEVER, if you just want it for lounging around the house,
WELL THEN BY ALL MEANS…ORDER THIS BABY IMMEDIATELY!
I was most worried about how this piece would hold up with washing, but one of the reviews totally erased any fear I had!
comfortable garment ever created – next to Ugg slippers! I bought the
amethyst on impulse & have been wearing it daily for months now.
wears well with no pilling & stays exactly as it was when I bought
have received this as a gift and loved it so much that I have given it
several times over! Everyone I have given it to raves about it! It’s a
winner and cannot be copied by any other brand, so it must be BAREFOOT
DREAMS! It is so super soft and cozy, you will want to wear it all the
time! It’s great for every climate and you will want one in every color.
I LOVED how it looked with both my jeans and my leggings.
The oooohs and ahhhhhs would be off the charts!!!!
Several other things that you need to know about the Blardigan:
The arms are fitted and the draping is so SO flattering.
So, even though it’s a roomy piece of clothing, it still shows your shape nicely.
Think about how amazing this would be for your holiday travels. You could wear it on a car or airplane trip, wear it out to dinner, and then lounge around in it at your fam’s house too!
Since there are only two sizes: small/medium and large/x-large….the sizing is very forgiving, which makes it super easy to order it as a gift
very pregnant friend Nikki (gonna pop any day now) tried on mine and it
looked GREAT on her too! It kind of just molds to your shape! If you’re pregnant, this could be GREAT for
you both DURING and AFTER your pregnancy!
(Several reviewers even said how they wore it home from the hospital after having their baby.)
Notice how long it is in the back. It hits mid-thigh which means it would totally cover your bootie and would be PERFECT for layering with leggings!
