Hey Gang! My sister Scotti is going to start contributing to The Mom Edit, and I couldn’t be more thrilled. She just had her first kiddo this past July (baby Greenlea if you follow me on Instagram), and I think you’re going to love her perspective.
When I was pregnant with my daughter, leggings became my best friend. Not only were they comfortable, but they expanded along with my butt, thighs and belly as the weeks went by. Regular leggings get old, though, so on a whim, I bought a pair of maternity leather leggings from H&M that I LOVED. They instantly made me feel more put-together and fashion-forward than the old leggings I was wearing on a (almost) daily basis. After having Greenlea, I found myself reaching for leggings again in my postpartum days and knew that I needed to purchase a pair of non-maternity leather leggings stat.
Faux leather leggings are as comfortable and as versatile as regular leggings, but add an extra bit of attitude and style to the same outfits. I love dressing mine up for date night by adding a blazer, fancy shoes and some stylish accessories or dressing them down for lounging or running errands by pairing them with comfy booties, fabulously soft t-shirts and cozy sweaters. They’ve been a saving grace with my postpartum body, hiding my pooch and replacing my pre-pregnancy jeans (um, made the mistake of trying them on too soon!) until I can fit in them again!
