I first told you guys about the *perfect* pair of maternity jeans I got in this Current Vibes post. And then I wore them here and here. They're the AG "Secret Fit Belly" Stella jeans and after trying on pretty much every pair at A Pea in the Pod I could determine that they were the best. Lots of stretch, super comfortable belly panel that can be folded or worn at full length, and I'm not having to constantly tug them up to keep them from slipping down. I love them - and wear them almost as much as I wear these leggings - but at the time it felt like a big a splurge. Why was I spending so much on designer maternity jeans?! But all my friends who are either pregnant or now have little ones assured me that it was worth it to invest in at least one pair of jeans that fits perfectly and promised me that I would be wearing them postpartum once I have the baby and can't yet fit into my pre-baby jeans.
So...of course. I buy another pair. In white. Because aside from the aforementioned leggings and a few maternity tops I just ordered yesterday, I haven't bought any other actual "maternity" clothes. And with my due date being in early May, I reasoned that I would need (and want) to wear white jeans in addition to the classic blue I already have.
I feel slightly guilty (two pairs of designer maternity jeans?!) but am trying not to be too hard on myself. White jeans are one of my biggest spring and summer wardrobe staples and I know that the cost per wear alone will make them worth it. I’m already worn them styled in other looks similar to the one here…with oversized sweaters and boots or flats, along with either a scarf or some earrings to make me feel like I’m making an effort. Though I’ll be honest – most days I don’t leave the house and it’s leggings and my giant long-sleeved t-shirts all day, every day.
