I’m all about comfort whenever possible and these “mom” jeans fit the bill perfectly. I’m now about 4 weeks postpartum and 15ish pounds away from my pre-baby weight and these jeans are perfect for that in between size. With my first pregnancy, I never wanted to spend too much money on clothes that were in between my sizes, but it actually took me almost 2 years to finally get back to my pre-pregnancy weight (granted, I wasn’t exercising regularly ;)). This time around, I purchased a few more “investment” postpartum pieces, because I know that I’ll likely wear it for longer than I think, plus I can pass it on to another mama friend (or keep it for myself for baby #3)!
It’s hard to tell in these photos, but these Madewell jeans have an elastic waistband and are a higher rise and skinny fit, so it tucks everything in very nicely! They are super stretchy too, so it makes it very comfortable when you’re trying to chase your toddler around; just make sure to size down as they will stretch out a bit.
I paired it with a striped top from Top Shop, this is actually from their maternity line – but it works well even if you don’t have a belly! And my most comfortable *what kind* cotton jacket from Forever 21.
Em’s super cute romper is an Old Navy hand-me-down from Ri. How cute is she?
I’ll be sharing a few other post-partum favorites in another post!
