You have Pilates in the morning. A Sawada date at noon. Then it’s off to the movies to see Sisters (finally). When your to-do list is long, a costume change probably isn’t on it. Sometimes you have to wear leggings all day. But that doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun with it. Here are six crazy leggings to get you through a similarly crazy day--and have a little fun while you’re at it.
