Pixie Pants

If you are a legging wearer and have not yet discovered J. Crew's Pixie Pants I am about to introduce you to your new favorite item of clothing! Come fall and winter I pretty much live in my leggings on the weekends but I've noticed it is so hard to find a pair that won't fade or, most importantly, aren't see-through!

After hearing Missglamorazzi repeatedly mention her J. Crew pixies in her Outfits of the Day --who by the way is my all time favorite youtube beauty guru-- I knew I needed to run to J. Crew and try some on for myself! Well after finally hunting them down I ran into a little problem...they were $88.00! For a glorified legging? I still tried them on to see what all the hype was about then put them back on the rack and exited the store with my head hung low. Well after thinking about them all of fall and most of winter -- oh and going back into J. Crew and trying them on 3 more times -- I finally made the investment and I could not be happier with my purchase!

The J. Crew Pixie Pants are made of a stretch ponte fabric and fit like a glove. To sum it up they are the ultimate legging -- nice and thick, yet cool and stretchy! When it comes to leggings I wouldn't dare leave the house without wearing a shirt the appropriate length but due to the thickness of pixie pants they fit and look just like a fitted work pant so no more long shirts need!





 J.Crew Pixie pants -- $88.00. Cynthia Rowley Blouse --Sale for $19.99. Baublebar.com Bubble Necklace --$38.00 (a steal when J. Crew has the same style for $120.00) Steven Madden flats --$40.00. 




J. Crew pixie pant -- $88.00. Old Navy Polka Dot sweater -- $24.00. American Eagle Jean Jacket --$60.00. Coral beaded Necklace --$12.00, Francescas. Steve Madden flats --$40.00


I do want to mention they are intended to be an ankle pant but considering I am only 5'3 they fit me like a standard pant. I tend to cuff them with the warmer weather-- and you'd never know! So a standard pant and an ankle pant in one -- did I mention I'm in love? In my last post I brought up a 'staple pieces' post I will be posting this week so definitely check back soon! My pixie pants will surely be on that list! Happy October!

  2. They look cute on you! I'm 5'10" and have an athletic build (i.e. muscular thighs and calves). I finally tried the pixies on yesterday and I felt like I looked like an Olympic speed skater in their tight racing outfits!!!

    1. Oh no! Do you wear leggings normally?? Im so sorry to hear that! since they are a thicker material I do feel like I look a litter stockier than in normal leggings!
