What the heck is a skirt legging anyway??

Hi guys!

What I found since starting this blog, is that it isn’t just Muslim ladies that want to dress modestly, but women from other faiths as well. Mimumaxi is a company run by two Jewish women who have similar views about fashion and modesty that many in the modest fashion industry have. That just because one wants to hold true to their values, it doesn’t mean that they can’t also express their individuality and be stylish as well.
Ok so back to the skirt legging… so while scouring IG for something cool and innovative to wear I found Mimumaxi and something they referred to as a skirt legging… I went to their website to check it out. They describe it as “the Skirt Leggings are entirely a skirt, but have the “feel” and versatility of a good pair of leggings“… hmmmm ok so I had to try them out and promptly ordered a pair. Below are two different ways that I styled them. The first is a winter look with an oversized sweater and boots. The second could be worn in the spring or fall or really anytime of the year, but with spring approaching, I will probably wear it then and maybe with sandles instead of boots. Let me just say that the skirt legging is exactly how it is described on the website. It is soft and stretchy and I really like it. I have to wear it with a long top though because it is fitted on the hips butt area and since I’m a bit “curvy”, I’m more comfortable with it covered, otherwise it looks just like leggings look when worn with a short top yikes! not for me lol…. anyhow here are my pics… the skirt legging can be found at http://www.mimumaxi.com/#!what-are-skirt-leggings/cooe.
