Breaking Down Maternity Jeans

Many of you have asked me what my maternity style is. Where to find cute and economical maternity clothes including jeans as well as nursing friendly clothing. I try my hardest not to buy too many maternity items because they can only be worn for a short period of time. There are some items you can’t live without and your body will be much happier if you just wear maternity, like jeans.
Unless your baby is due at the end of summer and you can go the last trimester in maxi dresses I suggest investing in a few great pair of maternity jeans. They don’t have to cost a fortune or even fit perfectly because your body will be changing so quickly what may fit one week will fit differently the next. The jeans I am wearing in these photos quickly became my favorite after I distressed the hem and updated them a bit.

Target: Super affordable denim. They can be a little baggy in the zipper area but once you hit the end of your pregnancy they will fit like a glove. The looseness is actually really nice because anything too tight is uncomfortable.
H&M: I found a pair of these in the sale section at my local H&M and absolutely loved them. I was surprised they fit so well. This is another affordable brand but not all stores carry maternity so you might have to order a few online.
DL1961: This brand is a little more expensive but I often wear my side panel jeans early in my pregnancy and for months after. They are very soft and comfortable.
Citizens of Humanity: It does feel nice to wear good quality denim. It’s hard to spend a lot of money on maternity clothes but if you find a great pair of jeans you’ll wear all the time it is worth the splurge. They can also be worn for your other pregnancies or you can let family or friends borrow them when you aren’t pregnant.
A Pea In The Pod: I went into this store for the first time a month before I had Noah. I never went to the store during my first pregnancy because I assumed this store was more matronly than I prefer to dress. There are some conservative pieces but I was so surprised at how many great brands they had! I got these shorts from there that were in the sale section.

That subtle elastic panel is great for the early and middle part of your pregnancy. I also love to wear them post pregnancy. Your midsection is still going to be larger than normal after you deliver and it’s nice to where comfortable jeans. Don’t put all your maternity clothes away just yet!
The belly panel is very comfortable during the later months of pregnancy. You dont’t have to worry about anything digging into you and it helps disguise your belly button if it became an outie!
This tee now comes in black! Along with this white one I have the orange too, not sure I need the black but you know when you really love something you want it in every color available. That is how I feel with this shirt.
The Breakdown
After I did my little DIY project to the hem of these jeans they became my go towards the end of my pregnancy. I had worn these jeans with this same top in this post and I loved the combo so much that I wore the outfit weekly. I thought it would be good to show you guys a different way to style it. This long blazer was worn a lot last month, it’s been the perfect thing to dress up any look and is great for the chilly air conditioned indoors during the hot summer months.
