As an avid wearer of jeans and a hoody, getting pregnant at the start of the year rung alarm bells when it came to my maternity style. I struggled with the change in my body shape and trying to dress for work everyday became a real challenge. My trusty jeans lasted as long as a hair bobble would stretch to keep them done up and then it suddenly became time to actually buy some maternity jeans.
I visited several changing rooms in my attempt to find the right pairs of jeans to see me through to the end of my pregnancy before I finally settled on a pair of skinny jeans and a pair of boyfriend jeans. These were fab and now that Freya is here; are packed away in storage for any future pregnancies. During my search I came across Mothercare’s Denim range which has a huge selection of denim options. When looking through the website, I chose 3 of my favourite pairs to test at home and see how well they worked for the pregnant lady.
The Girlfriend Jeans
These jeans are super comfortable and very giving with the stretchy band that allows you to where them over the bump and under. I am still wearing all of my stretchy maternity jeans now Freya has arrived as none of my pre-pregnancy jeans fit my mum tum yet.
If you’ve followed me during my pregnancy journey, you will have seen that I’ve tried out a few different footwear/accessory solutions to try to support my feet throughout the process. I tried out Vionic footwear back in June and when the opportunity to try out another pair came along, I was more than happy to say yes given my previous findings.
I received the absolutely stunning Kenley sneaker’s in a size 5 to try out and put to the test. My first thoughts were how gorgeous these are. They have lightweight flexibility and the upper’s are made from suede and have an almost shoe/brogue like appearance to them.
Last week after what was already a busy couple of days, I attended the Tune in, Switch off, Relax event at Joy the Store in Leeds. The purpose of the event was to bring bloggers and members of the public into the store to browse, enjoy a nail treatment from Nails Inc and then to take part in some Yoga.
I went to the event after work on Wednesday evening and was already feeling the effects of pregnancy taking its toll that week so made the decision not to take part in the yoga as I was just too tired in myself and knew my body was just not feeling it.
I was greeted by the lovely Jennie who had organised the event and offered a delicious smoothie whilst I browsed the store and waited for the Nails Inc folks to get set up.
