This go round with pregnancy is so much different than my first! I'm in a much healthier position personally and that has really affected the wardrobe selections I have because so many of the items I own from my first pregnancy are way too big.
Luckily, there are tons of things in fashion right now that flatter and accommodate a growing bump. And I will be able to wear them before/during/after pregnancy!
Most of these items I didn't already own, but I don't mind purchasing since they will be versatile. It's not like maternity clothing that you can only wear for a few months and then pack away until next time. Plus, these are sooooo comfortable - I'm kicking myself for not adding them to my wardrobe sooner!
Gauchos took me a while to get excited about. I remember them being a thing in the 90s for a brief time and although they were super comfy, not being overly flattering. However, I've found that pants like these are pretty much amaaaazing. They feel like pajamas, but they don't look frumpy. In fact I wore a pair to school this week and an 8th grade girl said, "Miss, I loooove your outfit. I would totally wear that." Winning!
Joggers may have been my biggest and baddest mistake - I judged them so hard and just knew they weren't cute on me and looked like sweat pants. Until I actually tried a pair on that I found on the clearance rack at Target. Oh....how I've been wrong. These babies are adorable and so comfy. I love that the bottom has some elastic so I can control the styling and I'm totally adding these and these to my wishlist. But can we all agree on one thing? Men should stop wearing them!
The good ole elastic waisted pant. I didn't even know I could find these for me! My son lives in them, but for adults? Someone hit a jackpot there. I've found a few pair on the trusty Old Navy clearance racks and I scoop them up each time. For spring/summer they've just released even more and I'm in love.
I had jumped on the legging train before I was pregnant after being introduced to LulaRoe. If you don't have a consultant, you should totally find one local to you and look at their stuff. It's amazing! And almost everything (except the leggings) is made in the USA - win! Leggings are not pants, but with the right length tunic they are the comfiest alternative ever!
