update on maternity shopping

Hi, Everyone!

Hope you all are having a great week.  This weather is to die for!  I am just loving the chilly temps in the morning and am so looking forward to when it is socially acceptable to wear a scarf every.single.day.

In the meantime, I wanted to share with you some recent purchases I made and am absolutely loving.

Like I shared, here, I pulled the trigger on a nice pair of AG jeans and I am living in these on the weekends.  (Picture below)

Other recent purchases I have made are below.  I have loved every single thing and plan on getting a ton of use out of each piece!

#1:  7 for all Mankind Ponte Pant.  Find them here.  I just bought these a couple of weeks ago and wore them to the conference.  They are amazing.  They look like a jean but fit like a thick legging.  Super, super comfortable and a great slim leg for tall boots in the winter.

#2:  Since we can’t wear jeans to work (sign) I gave in and finally bought some work pants that actually fit.  I have about 3 pairs of just these normal black trousers from Gap that I normally wear, so I was beyond thankful that they make the same pant in maternity.  Find them here.

#3:  I also went ahead and purchased them in the cropped pant as well.  Perfect for ball and with booties to work. Find them here.

#4:  I know I mentioned this in my weekly wears post but I am absolutely loving this sweater I purchased over the weekend.  The pictures don’t do it justice but it is a perfect transitional sweater for maternity and non maternity.  Find it here. 



best maternity jeans

Happy almost weekend everyone!  We are heading to Denver tomorrow to visit my brother-in-law, sister-in-law, niece and to FINALLY meet our nephew 🙂  OH – added bonus – one of my best friends and her husband live in Denver too so needless to say –  I won’t be able to sleep tonight!!!!!!

As I promised earlier, I wanted to send out a quick little post about my maternity jean hunt.  I have heard such great things from friends and here are my top 3 options.  I actually purchased option #1 and let me just tell you – best purchase I’ve ever made.  I can’t stop wearing these jeans because they feel like butter on my skin pajama jeans.  And let me be clear – they don’t LOOK like pajama jeans 🙂

Option #1:  AJ Jeans.  I am going to embarrass myself and show you an actual picture of the top of these jeans because I really feel like I should. They are the kind that have the panel that pulls all the way over your stomach.  It is almost like a built in Spanx for your jeans.  I might just wear maternity jeans for the rest of my life.

Option #2:  Citizens of Humanity . I have a friend who purchased these and she said she wore them so much that by the end, they could have walked away on their own.  If that isn’t a testament to these jeans – I don’t know what is.

Option #3:  J.Brand . The very fashionable friend of my sisters told me these were a must have.  Her exact quote:  

“I LIVED in these all the way through my pregnancy. Dressed them up with heels/nice top for work and down with sweaters/tshirts at home.”  

Sounds like the perfect pair to me, right?

Good luck in your maternity shopping!
