Sunny Summer Preggo Style

Over the years, I’ve heard a lot about how it’s not fun being pregnant during the summer months.  In my case I’m living out the third trimester during the hottest months of the year…here in the So Cal foothills we can reach temps above 100 degrees in August and September.  But I have to say it’s not as bad as I thought it would be.  Probably for one because we get a very dry heat out near the desert…humidity is low, so it’s not crazy sweaty like it would be where I grew in South Florida.  Also, I’m fortunate to have a swimming pool in my backyard, and swimming (or more like floating) is one thing I can still do at this stage in the game.  Finally, I’ve suffered pretty bad lower back pain during my pregnancy, and I think the heat helps a bit, whereas cold weather would probably make it worse.  The most important thing IMO is how you dress for the heat while pregnant.  I’ve been living in breezy dresses for a few months now.  It’s truly the easiest way to go!

Trend To Try: High Waisted Jeans

I know a lot of people are intimidated by high waisted jeans, or assume that they’re essentially mom jeans.  But right now, high waisted styles are trending, and they’re definitely not reminiscent of mom jeans, if you know which brands to shop.  I spotted this pair at Guess (whose jeans I’ve always been a fan of).  The distressed detailing caught my eye, and it gives the jeans an edgier feel.  I’m more likely to style them for casual wear, and paired them with this super soft tie front tee from LNA.  Because I’m only five feet tall, I prefer to wear jeans with heels to enhance the leg lengthening effect.  FYI high waisted jeans definitely work to lengthen your legs, and look good whether you’re taller or shorter!  However, make sure they fall at the right length and don’t bunch up at the bottom.  I had to have mine hemmed a few inches for the desired effect.  Sooooo what do you think?  Do you dig this look?  Would you try it for yourself?  Comment and let me know!
