The past several weeks of relentless heat and humidity combined with my rapidly growing bell have had me throwing on my hot magenta gym shorts:
almost every morning to be maybe changed when venturing out in public...(maybe)...
The solution seems simple with long maternity shorts like these that look great and appealing on the model with the impractical wedges:
but after purchasing and not wearing a similar pair of these kneecap skimmers from Old Navy when I was pregnant with Julia, I know that not every body type can easily pull off this style (mine being the very first and very foremost)
Enter: this morning when my magentas were dirty and Julia and Lucy were antsy to get out the door for our morning stroll so I threw any sense of appearance pride out the window and threw them on...camp counselor style:
Not quite as awful as I had remembered but terribly comfortable....too comfortable to not wear the rest of today and tomorrow and probably the day after that as well.
They were ill--fitting in the hip area (as our most Old Navy maternity bottoms) so I took them in a little tiny bit on each side:
and paired them with a longer tunic top and my go to elastic belts:
practical on the left and (obviously) grocery store bound on the right
I don't know...has my quest for comfort pierced my suburban mom fashion pupil for good?
if so, very well
