Yes, this post is about jeggings, in a way… I’ll get to that.
But first, I’d like to pose a few questions:
Why do we always only have to be one thing? We’re preppy, we’re sporty, we’re boho, we’re this, we’re that. Pick a Spice Girl. Why do have to only fit one mold? Why must we classify ourselves as one thing?
I always hated debate class. I hated it because I had to choose a side. But, more often than not, I could see both sides of the story. I could identify with both scenarios. I never wanted to pick a side because I don’t see the world as black and white. In my experience there is always a gray area, even if it’s a small one.
I have a lot of thoughts… I’m a thinker. I’m always in my head. When I’m driving I’m not just driving. I’m Adele on stage, lights dim, singing Send My Love. I’m passionate, I’m emotional and yes, stubborn. I believe in things whole heartedly even when I’m wrong. I’m honest and sometimes a little crazy.
I’ve tried to think less (sounds weird I know). I’ve tried to put on my face and blend in with the crowd, but in the end I always feel like I’m going insane. Like I’m trapped in some twisted movie in the Saw franchise forcing me to do things that I don’t want to do. Okay, maybe that’s a bit extreme, but it does give me that nails on a chalkboard sensation.
I can’t help it. My imagination has always taken me places where my reality could not. But lately, I’ve been thinking that maybe I don’t want my dreams to be just dreams any more… Maybe I want my imagination to actually be my reality. No, I’m not talking about becoming the next Taylor Swift (that’s for my car only), but really taking the time to evaluate my true desires and where I want my life to take me.
So maybe this is far fetched, but I’m going to say it any way… Jeggings. They aren’t jeans, they aren’t leggings– They’re both. Like me, they can’t decide one way or the other. They’re a mash of a few things that in the end, create something unique.
I guess my point to all of my babble is, be yourself. Maybe you do see the world as black and white. Maybe you think I’m a lunatic (it’s okay if you do), but whoever you are, own it.
P.S. If you’re like me and you dig jeggings, Dittos is fabulous. You can shop the brand at Lord & Taylor, Nordstrom Rack, Macys and they don’t just have jeggings. They offer regular jeans, shorts, skirts– The whole lot!
