My favorite maternity basics
Steps for a Gel Manicure + My Favorite Products
Now that I’m nearing my third trimester, I should spill the beans on what basics I’ve been living in! It’s funny, each one of my pregnancies has gone by faster and faster and I don’t think about it nearly as much as I thought I would. Nonetheless, I’ve found some great basics that have gotten me through most of my second trimester and will carry on through the third trimester as well!
The best leggings, by FAR, are Ingrid & Isabel active leggings. The thickness is perfect, the ankles have little zippers on the outside, and I swear you could dress them up for a business setting with the right top and shoes. I wear these so much that I actually got another pair of black ones to add into the mix! So between two black pairs and one grey pair, if you were to stop by my house at anytime you’re probably going to find me wearing these. I tried Blanqi leggings, and a Spanx version as well and both were so thin that I felt like I was wearing only nylons. I wore one pair to the gym one day but felt pretty uncomfortable because they were so thin!
As far as basic tees go, I bought a few colors of this simple crew neck long sleeve top from Gap. It runs small, but I love wearing it under sweaters or vests. I also found some great simple v-neck and scoop neck tees at Target from their Ingrid & Isabel line that have washed well and been very comfortable to wear.
Most recently, I found a lot of spring options at Old Navy, including this perfect tunic length maternity tee with a boat neck. It fits like a dream and I’m sure this will be in the weekly rotation as soon as the temperatures warm up!
Overall, I’ve found the most success shopping at for maternity wear at ASOS, Ingrid & Isabel, Old Navy, and Gap. I found a few things on Pink Blush Maternity but the quality is pretty questionable for the price.
