Never Say Never

I said I would never be one of those pregnant women who wear loose or garterized pants. I thought it looked sloppy, if not unflattering. But now that my tummy is getting bigger, I haven't worn any of my jeans or pants because I can no longer zip it up. These days, I'd rather go for comfort than style. Thus, loose or garterized pants are beginning to look appealing to me. Really appealing.

Two weeks ago, I went shopping with my sister who came over for a visit. She was on the lookout for a puffer jacket at Zara, but I was the one who ended up going home with three pairs of loose pants! Stylish ones at that! I got two pairs of dhoti/drop crotch pants and a slouchy harem trouser - all for the staggering amount of $29.70!!! Yes, each pair of pants was just $9.90 each!!! What a steal!

Here's how I styled my loose pants. Not so sloppy right?

Drop crotch pants with side pockets...

Top: T by Alexander Wang
Tights: Topshop Maternity
Flats: Lanvin

Dhoti pants with side waist tie and buttons...

Breton shirt: Petit Bateau
Scarf: Isabel Marant
Sneakers: Converse Chuck Taylor

My harem trousers are in the wash. Since it has a garterized waist, I've been wearing it nonstop for the last couple of days. Now I promise never to say never. I swear these loose trousers are heaven sent. So comfy and my tummy doesn't feel squished at all. There's lots of the room for the Little One to grow into actually. I am lucky that I am pregnant at a time that these are the style of trousers in fashion!

I'd never thought of drop-crotch trousers as being ideal pregnancy wear before. Clever AND stylish!

How funny, I saw some DC pants in H&M the other day and was just thinking that they'd probably be perfect preggy clothes for you, and ta-daaa! You and I are starting to think alike Tin!
