The Perfect Postpartum Jeans

Portrait of a momSince having babies, finding the right pieces of clothing for my wardrobe has been a serious struggle. I’ve had lots of questions. Like…

How do I dress this new body? What’s appropriate for moms to wear? Heck, what’s appropriate for women in their mid-twenties to wear?  Why hasn’t anyone invented spit-up-resistant clothing? And, when will they be opening a “Forever 27”?

So, a while back I asked all of you for jean recommendations. And good news, I listened. I tried on lots and lots of pants, and I CONQUERED. I found the perfect pair of skinny jeans for this postpartum bod of mine. (Truth be told, I also loved these jeans, which many of you recommended, but the price tag was a little heftier).

And no, this is not an ad. No one asked me to post this. I just genuinely love these jeans, and ALL of the products in these photos for that matter, and thought it would be a disservice to moms everywhere not to share them with you.

So, let’s talk pants.

These jeans. They are from Gap, and they are super stretchy and slightly high-rise, which is something I never thought I’d want. Turns out, it is everything. It sucks in the mid-section just enough while still being comfy enough for me to run around in all day. These ones are amazing too, and also in my weekly rotation. I tend to wear my skinnys a little longer, but both pairs come in multiple inseams!

As for the rest of my outfit, here are the details…

These heels? Well, they are 3 years old (because that’s how long it’s been since I’ve purchased any). So, I can’t give you exact details on this pair, but I did find this alternative and this alternative in case you’re feeling this style!Portrait of a mom-2Portrait of a mom-4I’ve never been much of a jewelry wearer. I WANT to be one. I’ve TRIED to be one. But, I always end up reverting to the same old simple and classic pieces that go with everything. For me, it’s my wedding ring, my “baby” necklace as I like to call it, which is this gold chain with two monogrammed circle pendants (one with the first initial of each of my babies), and my Kate Spade watch.Portrait of a mom-3Portrait of a mom-6Portrait of a mom-5Last but not least, I had to throw this in here. Have you ever seen the movie Ocean’s Eleven? And you know how Brad Pitt is always, always eating? Well, that’s me. As my friends and family know, I pretty much can’t go more than 30 minutes without snacking on SOMEthing. So, yes, there were Oreos in that bag I’m carrying (for me, not my kids). No one accessorizes their outfits with snacks better than I do, and I couldn’t end this post without giving you the full picture of my daily attire.

Oh, and did I mention that my husband took all of these photos? Can you believe it? Poor guy will now be stuck taking blog photos for me for the rest of forever.
