I came upon these fun gold polka dotted leggings as I was finishing a shopping trip in Forever 21. As I was leaving the store I saw them on a mannequin. It was love at first sight. I fell in love quickly and I fell  in love hard. But since I was with other people, I didn't feel like I could make all of us turn around just so I could try them on. So, with a heavy heart, I turned my back on them and walked away. But I walked away like George Michael does in Arrested Development- with my head down and Charlie Brown music playing in my head (if you don't know what I mean, check it out here.) Don't worry though because this story has a happy ending. A week or two later I happened to wander into a different Forever 21, having completely forgotten about my lost love. Then I saw them. Romantic music played and I ran over to them (in slow motion). And we lived happily ever after.

But seriously, I do love these leggings. They're thicker than your average leggings and not nearly as stretchy. This means you can wear them like pants without the "leggings are not pants" brigade coming after you with pitchforks. That's a good feeling.

*If you do chose to buy a pair, I recommend going up a size. I usually wear small pants and the leggings I'm wearing here are a medium and they're still a tight squeeze because they have so little stretch*
