Mom Street Style: Kristen’s Genius Style Tip For Baby-Wearing

Mamas, check it:

Photo (63)

When you're all covered up by baby, let your legs take center stage.  As reader Kristen writes…

Forgive the crappy photo, but I believe I may have found the perfect baby-wearing accessory: fancy pants! These particular floral pants are leggings which, in my book, makes them eligible for: ignoring my 4 year old at the playground, reading a magazine in the YMCA lobby when my husband thinks I am "working out," and going to a friend's birthday party when my real-life clothes don't fit (see reading at gym, above, haha.)

Brilliant, Kristen!  I love it.  We need to add this little gem to Lane's Baby-Wearing Style Basics.

Kristen's chambray tunic was from Old Navy (now gone, but Gap has one) and her leggings are from Stylemint.  Sadly, they are sold out, but a wait-list is available.  Otherwise, Urban Outfitters has a pretty pair, but I also like their muted paisley legging.  Mamas, are any of you rocking crazy legs these days?  Mind sharing your finds?  I can't quite decide….


Kristen, you look gorgeous, girl!  Love this look – thank you so much for writing in!

    Love this tip. I just randomly bought a pair of jazzed up leggings from Lauren Conrad’s line at Kohls and I have been surprised at how much I like them! I bought these:
    There are also some floral ones that are cool. Also, only $10!

    Ignoring your four year old… can we be best friends? Plus we have the same name, even better.

    What a fab idea, you looks awesome! 🙂 Is that a Close carrier? We had one in pistachio for Vince, they are so comfy to wear! 🙂

    Just discovered this blog and I’m in love!
    I don’t have any floral print pants but my Boba wrap IS a bright orange….so that makes it an accessory I hold my baby in, right? hehe
