Well, this outfit was not a winner, folks. I thought it would be, as one of my favorite maternity looks was this one from last year. But, the problem with this version boils down to ill-fitting pants and a deep self-consciousness about the size of my bottom half. The pretty goldenrod-colored pants fit my postpartum body a bit strangely, as they’re far too big in the waist now, and they stretch to about a size bigger everywhere else over the course of the day. Plus, when I looked back at these photos, I decided that wearing flats with these pants made my look fat (I realize I’m not overweight, but, hey, we all have those days…), so I wore these sandals instead.
Regardless, the end result of this look was not good. It did not function well for my day of office work and a visit to the dentist in that I was pulling up my pants all day and worried that my butt looked gigantic. In the future, I might try to find another version of these pants (i.e., a smaller size, or perhaps a skirt in the same color), or maybe I’ll just gain weight so that these pants fit again. That latter option sounds more fun 🙂
