shades of gray

DSC_4376For as much as I love the way these gray maternity pants fit me, I can’t seem to think of many ways to wear them. Perhaps it’s because they’re a dressier professional pant, whereas most of my maternity tops are pretty casual? Regardless, I struggled to come up with this outfit last week.

DSC_4360In the end, I decided to go with one of my (yes I have multiple) jewel-collar shirts and some metallic pumps. Sadly, this button-up will have to join the ranks of the rest of my regular wardrobe until further notice–my belly is a bit too big to wear it comfortably anymore. Sad face.

  1. Sorry, I don’t have much to offer, I’m just here to commiserate. I bought dark grey dress pants about two years ago, and while I love the fit and they are super versatile in theory, I’m having the hardest time styling them. I’m going to try to force myself to wear them a few times next week so I can figure things out. I’ll definitely try to take a page from Kaci and pair them with navy… and I guess we’ll figure out what else I can do with them. I’ll keep you posted!


  2. I don’t wear dress pants so I’m not much help sorry! Do you have any maternity nicer short sleeve tops you can wear under a cardigan? Or button up a cardigan over a cami? I know it’s still a bit warm but once it cools off, sweaters will go well with them too!
