soo i have been saying for thee longest that i do not want maternity jeans. i was determined to find every way around getting some because i thought they were ugly and don’t make you look cute and i just didn’t want them. i was using my maternity band, putting a hairtie thru the loop, wearing longer shirts to cover the fact that i wasn’t buttoning them..
i went to brunch with my friend yesterday and found that i couldn’t zip my pants at all. not even a little bit. they were like cotton pants that feel really soft and aren’t even as constricting as jeans are, but they wouldn’t budge. i ended up putting a long shirt on with them and just folded the waist over. but the tab that holds the button closed kept peeking out from underneath and i was super annoyed trying to make sure that no one could see that yes i did walk outside my house with my pants all the way undone. it was frustrating.
when i got home i looked through my clothes and found that i really only have two pairs of jeans that will now fit. you never realize how many pairs of pants you have until you can’t wear any of them -___- i put them away for now. i also have a couple of sweat and yoga pants that are workable, but i figured it wouldn’t hurt to go look at some maternity clothes. especially since i have another 4 months to grow and i don’t always want to go to work in sweat pants.
i had heard old navy had a maternity section so i paid them a visit. the section wasn’t very large but i wasn’t trying to buy an entire closet so it didn’t bother me too much. i found jeans, and capris and pants, and stretchy pants and dresses and some shirts. i was really looking for pants as i can still fit most of my shirts so i grabbed some skinny jeans.. i tried them on. and then i bought them. they look pretty good actually, i don’t know what i was so scared of. and i can actually wear them comfortably. and they were having a 25% off maternity clothes sale. it was a win all around.
