I have tried and tried to get together a casual wardrobe. I'm 34 years old now! I need to be able to dress myself. I'm great at business casual, lady lawyer, going-out clothes, cocktail and black tie. However, I can't do cute casual day clothes to save my life.
So, I've given in. I love wearing workout clothes. And now it's a trend! Athleisure! Hurrah!
When Hold Your Haunches contacted me about their compression leggings, I was excited to give them a try. HYH provided me a pair of the Caboose Boost Capri to review.
The pants are multilayered- there is an interior shape wear layer, then a cottony top layer (it's actually polyester, but not shiny).
I loved the fold-down waist band- it kept my tummy nice and tucked in when I had it pulled up like so.
My only quibble was that the capris were a little baggy/saggy in the knee and calf area. I think this is because I'm short, or maybe I should try a smaller size. Also, the pants are pretty pricey for this girl. I will be interested to see how well they hold up. However, if you are used to Lululemon prices, this is about the same, and not see-through, ha!
I am thinking about getting a pair of the long leggings- maybe they will be my gateway into pairing them with real clothes. All I know is that they will be perfect for Thanksgiving dinner!
Also of note- I got a lovely little handwritten note when my leggings arrived- the lovely founders are two moms from Macon who likely feel my pain on the inability to wear pants with a button.

Thank you to Hold Your Haunches for providing me a pair of leggings to review- all thoughts regarding the capris are my own.
