Wackily Sized Leggings

This is vaguely ridiculous but I ordered a pair of leggings from ASOS and grossly miscalculated the conversion of British to American sizes (which is weird because I lived in London for a bit and got pretty damn good at making that conversion on the fly as I shopped) and wound up with a pair of leggings that are like 4 sizes too big. They are, however, perfect for the waning of this particular Alberta winter in which I have, several times, needed to layer wool tights and an additional pair of leggings underneath because it’s been -40 out with the windchill. Advantage me!

leggings: ASOS / tunic: Target / boots: Target / necklace: Aldo / bracelets: Aldo / watch: Swatch

Haha, I hate that! It's the Italian/French sizes that get me most...thank goodness for conversion charts, haha.

Ha ha, that's too funny! At least it turned out that you've been able to wear them in the end. And I'd never have guessed there were tights under them :)

Nice leggings. I should order myself one. :) Hope not to miss the sizing.

Fabulous 30s

I've done that too! So I ended up wearing my shirt just for home. Love the leggings though and that top!

Sizing can be a pain, but they look pretty good here with the boots.

Ha ha, oops! But they look really good on you! Love the boots, too.

That blue looks so good on you and I love your boots.

I've definitely done that before on ASOS. I learned the hard way that it's wise to go up a size or two even after the conversion. At least they offer free returns, right?


Another Beautiful Thing

Haha whenever I talk myself into buying something from America I freak out cause the sizing confuses me and then I don't buy it. In fact I have never had anything shipped and I really wanna buy something from Modcloth! Anyway, the leggings seems a great fit so that worked out well! :)

Haaappy Spring!
