The High-Waist Leggings Dhani Lives in Even Though They’re Definitely for Teens

The white dog logo says it all. Pink high waist cotton ankle legging, $36.95, available here.

I don’t personally know very many teens, but based on what I’ve seen around Los Angeles and in YouTube videos, I picture them in a uniform of crop tops and either high-waisted shorts or high-waisted leggings.

I also know that teens and college students are the target demographic for the Victoria’s Secret-owned Pink brand, which is why I feel particularly silly about the fact that I just can’t stop wearing a pair of Pink high-waisted leggings. Disclosure: I purchased them with a gift card given to me by the brand. I’m literally wearing them as I write this.

They’re not only the most comfortable “pants” I own, but I also like the way I look in them: The high waist creates a nice silhouette and feels supportive but not constricting, and they come in a cropped length that hits my ankle at just the right point.

They’ve become my go-tos for everything from working from home to watching TV to doing yoga. Still, I can’t help but feel a little embarrassed by the little white dog logo near my left ankle that basically feels like a sign that says “you’re too old to be wearing these.”

But at the same time, I feel tempted to buy another pair, because unlike leggings from age-appropriate brands that are targeting me, they cost under $40.

  1. First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Appreciate it!
