I Love Lycra!

From left to right: 1. American Apparel - Navy
2. American Apparel - Grey Ribbed
3. Black Milk - Galaxy Purple
4. Topshop - Leopard Print
5. eBay - Red
6. Black Milk - Galaxy Blue
7. DanceWear - Black
8. Topshop - Floral Print
9. American Apparel - Retro

Wow, when I lay them all out like this, it really is a bit ridiculous. Ok, so there are only two pairs of leggings here that are NOT lycra unfortunately. Boo hoo. The leopard print and the floral - both Topshop beauties - are just standard cotton leggings. Of course I do wish they were lycra... So when did my love of lycra first start? Probably when I was about 5 and I adored my neon cycling shorts so much that they became my "blanket", my comfort "thing". Some people have teddy bears. I had my lycra cycling shorts. I took them everywhere. As I grew up I realised I much preferred them when they were cold. So into the freezer they went! And even hanging out of the window. I can't remember when I grew out of the phase? Probably when I lost them and couldn't get another pair. Sob. So I will relive my childhood "blanket" through lots of lycra leggings instead. Yay! (Probably best to mention here that I don't take my leggings to bed!)
