I know I’ve mentioned before that I used to steer clear from form-fitting pants/leggings because of my left knee. To me, it’s so painfully obvious that my left knee is swollen and misshapen and I didn’t want to wear anything that would bring more attention to it. But, that was a couple years ago and in the last few months, I’ve realized this: I shouldn’t let my scars limit me from wearing what I want. If I refuse to wear leggings because I’m ashamed of how my leg looks, that’s letting my tumor win. I was not given a second chance at life to say no to the things that make me happy.
So, I’ve been wearing a lot of leggings recently, even in the ridiculous summer heat and I’m not even sorry about it. They are comfortable as heck, can be dressed up or down and have a forgiving waistband, so I can eat my heart out at dinner. I normally wear plain black leggings, but the lovely gals behind Mo & Cho sent me these really fun and edgy leggings to style and I’ve been madly obsessed with them.
I’m not one to call myself an “edgy” dresser, but I do love adding some edgy elements to my outfits when I need a pick me up. There’s nothing like a pair of black leather boots and leggings that make me feel like I can take over the world. When I need some motivation to get some stuff done, I stomp around in these edgy leggings and boots because they remind me that I’m a bad-ass survivor who is going to live her life. But, on the flip side, I don’t want to be completely hardcore and scary, so there definitely has to be some balance! Here are some of my tips to rocking edgy leggings and some outfit inspiration!
