I will be the first to admit that I don’t care that much about being in style. In fact, I would say that I dress primarily for comfort and practicality, not for fashion’s sake. If it’s cold out, I dress warmly, no matter what! I am still wearing sweaters I bought on clearance at GAP 7 years ago because I still like the way they look. I often choose not to purchase trendy items because I know they will go out of style the following season. I also feel it’s wasteful to spend a lot of money on clothing- especially when our family has only one income.
Since I’ve had Lula, so many people have been so generous with clothing for her that I am put to shame when I compare her wardrobe to mine. She had a pair of Minnetonka Moccasins before I did.
She has ten thousand dresses which she rocked last summer into fall.
And her leggings and jeggings…oh my goodness.
Her cute wardrobe is prompting me to pay a little more attention to mine.
We went to Target the other day in the hopes of finding a pair of maternity jeggings for moi. I really want a pair of jeans that are stretchy and comfortable, now that my regular jeans are getting to the point where I don’t want to stretch them out. I was hopeful that Target might have what I was looking for. Alas, no luck. But, I did find a pair of maternity leggings
- something I have never been brave enough to wear before.
I think they look surprisingly good on me and since I had a gift card, I was able to justify the purchase.
However, I really want to find a pair of jeggings too- I’ve got plenty of maternity skirts and dresses and am trying to be reasonable and practical about the fact that I won’t be wearing this stuff after July/August of this year but still…getting something cute and new occasionally is a mood lifter. At least for me!
I’ve found that GAP offers the best choices of the maternity legging style jean. I found this pair and love them:
But how can I spend $45 on jeans I am only going to wear for 6 months? Old Navy has some reasonable prices and some fun colored jeggings
but being a classic girl, I want the traditional denim ones so I can wear them with anything.

maternity jeans? I definitely can’t justify that- I don’t even have a pair now! :)
I hope to find a pair of jeggings at some point in the near future- I am also considering checking out thrift shops for a used pair instead of buying them new.
Other places I should look?
