One thing that I’ve been missing with maternity dressing has been the variety of pants and skirts. If not for maternity jeans*, then my other choice is a dress. I love dresses, don’t get me wrong but a little bit of variety goes a long way. I took a chance on these striped pants, seeing how they had an elastic waistband and the rise of the pants seemed a bit ambiguous anyways. They could easily be high waisted or worn under the bump from what I could tell from the photo. I ordered them with low expectations.

Well, well, well.

My risk taking paid off because they fit, are so comfortable and  adorable! AND they are not a dress! (Nothing against you lovely dresses, sometimes a woman just needs some pants.) I did size up in these pants in the case of the bump but honestly I feel like because of how loose they are and that they stretch a bit while wearing, I could have stayed true to size. Case in point — you might want to size down in these. I’m kind of kicking myself for going up a size, but that’s the gamble us online shoppers take. 😉 Also I’ve learned with pregnancy, you will always want looser than tighter. This might also apply to life in general, now that I think about it.

I can’t stop wearing these heels. (Well I mean I do at night; I don’t sleep in them or anything.) They are such a perfect color for spring and the best nude mules I’ve found so far. Comfortable nude heels for spring? Yes please. Oh and speaking of yes, pleasethis top is amazing for layering this spring, under $45 and comes in SO many colors! You can find the top here.

  1. They are awesome pants – pregnant or not! 🙂

    I have so many elasticated waist skirts in my wardrobe – they came in really useful when I was pregnant as they could stretch so well to fit the bump, even in the third trimester! 🙂 They are those little wardrobe must-haves for me, as they work equally as well post-partum too when your regular jeans and skirts aren’t as forgiving 😉

    Hope you are having a lovely Easter and enjoying the long weekend Kendi!
