Today’s Friday Favorites is going to revolve around what may be the most incredible leggings of all time. They fit like a dream! Are “standard” sizing, but works perfectly for maternity and postpartum! And are softer than silk. Oh, and did I mention – not cheap?
I know this may come as a slight shock that cheapskate me is obsessed with these $98 leggings. But y’all, once you put them on you won’t want to take them off.
Lululemon’s magical leggings
Lululemon’s Align Pant has some kind of magic interwoven into the material. Like there are times I have to stop myself and check I’m wearing pants. That’s how lightweight and buttery they are.
Not only is the fabric amazing, but the fit is *chef’s kiss*. No matter how many times you want to practice your “buss it” moves, these leggings aren’t going anywhere. They’re high waisted, yes! But it’s more than that. Between squats and downward dogs and cycling, there’s NO TUG! Especially as someone with a long torso, high waist and long legs this is NOT an easy feat.
Something to note – they run big! “Normal” me wears a size 8, “pandemic” me wears a size 10, and even at almost halfway through this pregnancy, I’m still in a size 10. However, I will say the size 12s are going to be my preference as soon as my hips and/or belly pop more.
But no worries, shipping, and returns are fast and free with Lululemon so my best suggestion is to order your normal size and one size down so you can try and compare! Although fair warning. Once you try them, you’ll get the insane hype surrounding them! Money-saving tip – you can find them from places like Poshmark. I do set alerts for listings because they can go fast!
My favorite ways to wear my lululemon align leggings:
This fleece sweatshirt! Wearing a size large in the white, this is on heavy rotation. I love that it has thumb holes and that they’re long enough for my stretch-Armstrong wanna-be limbs. The funnel neck gives it just enough to make it feel *chic*, especially with the tunic-ish length.
My go-to throw-on sneakers right now. And there’s a 20% target circle coupon! They’re under $25 but look way more expensive, crazy cute, and definitely comfy. Plus, my 4-year-old is obsessed with them and tells me I’m a fast cheetah when I wear them. So, ya know. Win-win.
ALERT ALERT! My favorite oversized sweatshirt is 60% off! And you will need multiple colors. This tunic-length live-in ready pullover is great, even when pregnant and postpartum. And because of the little slide slits and relaxed fit, it’s super easy for a pull-up nursing wear option. I own it in green, but I’m about to add the camo and wine!
Oh hi. These are my best friends in slipper forms and I have two pairs now. Because you definitely need an upstairs and downstairs pair of house slippers, right? My slippers come in 5 colors and are available in sizes 6-11. Currently under $22 with an extra 10% off coupon! They are everything a slipper should be: easy to slip on but don’t fall off while walking, cozy and warm without making my feet sweat, and a solid anti-skid sole.
