maternity jeans

I posted here and here about my lack of maternity wear. And I’ve got to admit it, around 28 weeks I started to feel really uncomfortable with still wearing regular jeans and a belly band. I got into a little bit of a style rut and was overall just not feeling good about myself. I’m not one of those women who sail their way through pregnancy glowing. I feel big and uncomfortable and my skin breaks out like a teenage boy – it’s just not pretty, so I tend to struggle with feeling that way while pregnant.

I posted about some maternity style options here and finally got to the point that I couldn’t take it anymore – I had to get something comfortable to wear! GAP maternity jeans came highly recommended but the price tag was not desirable, then I found a pair of maternity skinny jeans on sale and had a 40% off coupon for them – it was a no brainer! Because I’m so short {5’4″) I decided to get the ‘ankle’ length, and they fit perfectly! What was amazing about this purchase was how much of an impact it made on me – it’s amazing what a simple pair of jeans can do to your confidence! I immediately felt more comfortable and at ease, having to constantly pull up my regular jeans and fix my belly band was exhausting! I would highly recommend to any pregnant women out there to invest in a good pair of maternity jeans that you actually feel comfortable in – it will make the world of difference I promise!

pregnancy style

Since my post last week about my maternity wish list I thought I’d do a post about how I’m managing to get by this pregnancy without maternity clothes…yet.

I picked these blue pants up a few years ago and lucky for me the bright pant trend has made a resurgance. I’m using the good ole rubber band trick to make these work for pregnancy and my long tank covers up the evidence ;)
Unfortunately the pictures cut off the shoes but the black oxfords I’m wearing are some of my favorite shoes.

My new favorite maternity options…maxi skirts! Seriously one of the most comfortable things to wear right now, due to the elastic waistband ;) I used accessories to glam it up a little bit – the gold watch, necklace and detailing on the shoes made a plain comfortable outfit a little more ‘date ready’.

These jeggings are the only ones that I can still button because they are so stretchy, also making them another of my most comfortable options. I picked up a bunch of these long sleeve tees in different colors, which happen to be super long in length and work great for this stage of pregnancy. The shawl cardigan is a good way to keep warm this winter-y season. And of course, I had to spice up the outfit with my most favorite newest purchase. Buying shoes is always a great option to boost yours spirits when feeling down during pregnancy.

As always I’d love to answer any questions you have in the comments section, and let me know if you’d like me to feature more of these kind of posts.
