maSh Leggings


At the moment I'm trying to build up a collection of summer clothes, especially those that would lend themselves well to travelling as we're off to Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore in a few weeks, so excited!

So I've been taking a lot more interest in types of clothing that I would never normally venture towards. Leggings have always been relegated to pyjama wear rather than anything to leave the house in but I'm thinking they will make perfect travelling clothes as they're lightweight, dry quickly and are super comfortable.

Obviously my first thought was to the high street, namely American Apparel, but generally they are not the best quality or unnecessarily expensive, namely American Apparel... So I thought it would be better to spend the same money supporting a small, up and coming designer right?

maSh leggings are a very small, independent Chicago based company that produce colourful, good quality designs that are not just the same old leggings we're all so used to. Will definitely have to invest in some before my travels!

For once I can actually show you where to buy the things I'm blogging about! That's a first...
To visit maSh to have a look or purchase some reasonably priced wares, visit the website.

I'm featured in the 'Up and Coming' section of the UK Bloglovin' (hoorah!) so you are more than welcome to follow me if you'd like to keep track of my ramblings. Follw HERE.

ALSO The over 200 followers (which happened a lot quicker than I expected...) competition prizes are winging their way to me now, so keep an eye out for a giveaway this week!

  2. They are great leggings. I love all of the variety of prints. Those yellow ones at the top are nice, and those gold ones look so good with those white ankle boots. I'd like to get both of those!

  9. Oh you lucky thing, I want to go East too. I can see where you are coming from with the leggings for travelling but once you are there you will probably want looser once you have arrived. With a big T much nicer than track bottoms.
    Thank you for your lovely comments and the honour of being added to your blog role. Xxx

  13. how exotic! leggins are so comfy and this are so cool especially the white with flowery print but since in those countries humidity and heat is are an issue strive for mostly cotton and light colors or forgo the leggins for an army of light dresses and shorts, thrust me it's no fun feeling you are fusing into your clothes

  17. Clare, honestly I think you'll die sweating in them. Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore... It's going to be so hot, all you want are light shorts, vests and perhaps a t-shirt (for a cold day) and flip-flops. Maybe a Vivienne Westwood Anglomania t-shirt dress, can't go wrong with that.

  18. I'm just starting to get into leggings myself. I couldn't see myself liking them after constantly seeing people wearing them wrong, but I'm totally buckling since they come in so many cool patterns!

    have an awesome, awesome trip
