Waist Not, Want Not

I only have one pair of work pants that I can still button. Luckily my jeans are all low-rise, so they seem to be holding up. But work wear is getting a little tight.

So I bit the bullet and ordered some maternity pants yesterday. This is a moment I've been dreading. I want to be comfortable, but I also want to be cute. And I have the added hassle of needing pants with an extra-long inseam.

Luckily Gap Maternity was able to accomodate. The black dress pants I ordered are super long and cut nicely. I even managed to find a pair of maternity skinny jeans (oxymoron?).

Now if only JCrew carried maternity. That would thrill me beyond belief.


  1. My friend wore these belly band type things that allowed her to wear her regular jeans/pants unzipped (I think she got them from Target). Another friend got some extra button thing to elongate the waist of her jeans. I feel like I always see commercials for super cute maternity will be beautiful no matter what!

  2. Yay, honestly Sammy, I can still wear my old jeans if I just wear a longer shirt/blouse and employ some rubberbands or a bellyband. Tutorial tonight!

  3. I'm thinking a Belly Band purchase will be taking place tomorrow. Maggie, actual pregnant person visual appreciated.
