It’s been an exciting bump week! I entered my third trimester (crazy to see my favorite apps say 11 weeks and a few days to go)… AND I discovered the best maternity jeans. For my pregnant mamas these are incredibly comfy. I learned the hard way by ordering a size up that they run true to size (I just figured size up since I’ve grown out of my regular pairs and have been doing the hair-tie trick for months now). Not only are they crazy comfortable but they’re ultra-slimming too. A few friends have told me they lived in them post baby, and so I’m sure they’ll be getting their fair share of wear this fall / winter season. I also ordered this style, although unfortunately in a size up so it’s still a little roomy on my waist but I think it will be perfect in the coming weeks as this bump seems to be growing by the day.
Since I’m not a huge fan of tight clothes I’ve been living in billowy blouses like this one which are equally comfy and flattering for the growing midsection. Thank goodness for Ulla Johnson, she’s been my go-to for pregnancy pieces that aren’t maternity. PS: I swear that the white photographs in a way that makes my bump disappear but trust that it’s there.
