Review: Marika Miracles Slimming Capri Leggings

Happy Monday! :)

There's no better way to start the week than with going out for a walk/jog.
Whenever I go walking, I want to make sure I am comfortable and stylish at the same time, haha! ;)

I love love love my yoga pants, but they aren't totally ideal for summer weather.
And that is why I was ecstatic when I received capri leggings from Marika!
