Wal-Mart Jeggings

I don't know if you are even still with me with that blog title. I know those words can be scary for many of us!

I'm not a huge Wal-Mart fan nor am I a jeggings lover, but put the two together and you have magic! I swear. I was casually looking for some athletic shorts the other day{I know, shocker, right?} in Wal-Mart and I happened to brush by a sale rack of jeggings. Something made me check them out and I really don't know why. In case you haven't noticed, I'm clearly not a size 2 and thus I'm not jeggings' #1 fan. However these looked and felt different and the $5 pricetag was practically begging for me to buy a pair. I'm a sucker for a good deal.

I thought, "What's the harm?" and added them to my purchases. When I got home I tried them on and much to my shock and surprise, I actually liked them. And not just a little, but A LOT! It seems as if I'm not alone because if you look closely in the screen capture, the jeggings are rocking a solid 4.5 out of 5 stars.

They are extremely comfy and I purchased them in a dark wash so they're semi-flattering. I also made sure that I didn't get them in a size that is soo super tight that I look like I can't breathe. You're welcome for that image.

I posted an unintentional weird angled camera phone image of me the other day at the Mint Julep Jaunt and I was sporting the jeggings {I promise I wasn't trying to be "artsy"--haha!}. It's blurry, but you can kind of get a sense for the jeggings. My favorite part, that you can't see in this pic, is the pocket detailing and faux zipper.

Way to go Wal-Mart. I'll probably take another pair....or two.

Find any unexpected bargain deals lately? Do share!

They look great! Your top is really cute also. I will have to check these out....I also have been NOT a jeggings fan thus far!

Stephanie said...

wow! Walmart! Who knew?? I'm totally going to get a pair... real skinny jeans are NOT comfortable especially when I can't get em off over my calves!

Paige said...

Hmmmm I bought 1000 dollars of lighting for the kitchen, hallway and porch yesterday but I wouldn't call it a bargain.

Cutie in the jeggings!

I bought some Walmart jeggings for a Halloween costume this year (I was Violet Beauregarde from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) because I didn't want to spend a lot of money on the costume. I too was surprised how well they fit and looked with tunic tops and dresses and it has now become part of my every day wardrobe :)

they look great, more like skinny jeans than some of the jeggins I've seen that most of us can't wear! love that top too!

Lynett said...

Joi??? Jeggings????? I'm going to have to see it to believe it. That's a pretty good steal for $5 :) You look so cute in that pic!

Sarah Baker said...

I think I might go buy some at lunch... I love Walmart finds! IT's time for a new one! 2 of my favorite (and most complimented) shirts are from walmart. Love it!

Marissa Waddell said...

Rather than being scared away by the title of this post, I was completely intrigued! Those are some sweet jeggings. I LOVE a good, cheap find!

PeaceLoveApplesauce said...

Oh, wow! I have yet to try jeggings, so maybe I'll pick up a pair. Thanks for sharing.

Megandvd@Beauty in the Attempt said...

I was wondering after I started reading this post if those were the ones you wore on our little jaunt. Haha! You looked super cute. I will have to scope these out....ESP now that I can wear regular clothes. I would love to wear them with a dress and cardi too.

Cheers

Some of my fav pants are corduroy jeggings from WalMart's Miley Cyrus line last fall. I saw some in the J. Crew catalogue for like $90 and would sooner die than spend that much money on a pair of pants. A few days later, I was at WalMart getting stuff for work and scrolled by a clearance rack. They were also like $7, so I grabbed a pair. Got them home and loved them so much I went back and bought the rest of the colors. I've gotten a few hundred compliments on them and a bunch of my friends ended up buying and loving them, too. Now, I'm gonna stop at WalMart after work and check out your find! Thanks

You're such a doll! I bought an OPI dress to use as a bathing suit coverup or to pair with leggings for 10 dollas the other day.

Gotta love good bargains amongst the sketch dude lurking around the women's underwear department (Yeah, that happened the other day during the purchase of said OPI dress).

@Coletta-Wow. You have a strong dislike for them! I kinda admit, I used to, too...but these aren't your usual skin tight jeggings. They are made out of jean material and are more of a straight leg look. They don't look glued to your body!

I love that you love them. Im not brave enough to try them out. Im 5'9" and I doubt they have any long enough anyways.
I do, however, wanna ask where your top is from. I loved it when you posted the other day. It looks like an Anthro top. Is it?

Joi said...

@HandbagsnPigtails-Thanks! My top is from Urban Outfitters. : )
