I live in leggings. Is that what you mean by tights Kismet?
I am a total leggings tragic...they go with everything, summer with thongs, winter with boots. They are the legs version of the ahh bra. So versatile.
I do on special occasions breakout the jeans, but yes, the muffin top fills me with so much confidence during the day that I rip them off as soon as I get home!
