Frilling Maternity: Breezy Linen Pants

By

It’s been crazy around here!  We’ve been in our new house a week now, and are unpacked and settling in and dealing with all the issues that arise when you (well, we, at least) buy a house.  Aurelia and I got a chance today to snap some outfit photos for a long overdue maternity fashion post.  I have a hate-hate relationship with maternity jeans because I can never find a pair that doesn’t fall down and sag in the but, and was in need of some kind of comfortable, versatile summer pant.  Aurelia talked me into checking out these non-maternity wide-leg linen pants she had seen.  I don’t usually go for wide-leg pants, but these have been very handy, cool, and comfy to have around this summer and I have been wearing the heck out of them, just as she predicted. (Word to the wise: if Aurelia gives you fashion advice you should most likely take it.)

I’ve been pairing them with everything from tshirts, to drapey dolman-sleeve tops, to this maternity tunic from Asos which I’m in love with; but today I kept it simple with a black tank, drapey vest, and flat thong sandals, plus lots of chunky jewelry.  At 7 months pregnant (and feeling huge) in 100+ degree heat, comfort is my main goal in fashion; everything else is details.
