J Brand Maternity Brooke Boot Cut Jeans

I am lucky to have two older sisters that were recently pregnant who generously shared their maternity clothes with me.  It was a ton of fun sorting the bags, trying on clothes and thinking about the upcoming months.  Thanks Anne & Theresa!  

The one thing I did decide to get new was some pants.  I wear jeans often and have heard lots of good things about the maternity jeans from J Brand, so when I saw they were on sale at, I quickly ordered a couple pairs.  The first pair to arrive were these Mama J Brooke Boot Cut jeans, which I have been wearing tons since they arrived.  Last week (at 19 weeks) was the last week when I could wear my regular jeans without a belly band.  These jeans have been so comfy I haven't even tried the belly band again.  I can't wait until the skinny jeans I ordered arrive!  I definitely recommend J Brand maternity jeans - especially if you can find them at Gilt.  With the Gilt price plus a special 2 day 20% off coupon, I ordered 3 pairs of jeans for $200, which is about the normal price for one pair.  The jeans are really comfortable with just the right amount of stretch, a higher raise in the back and elastic panels in place of the front pockets, plus the length is perfect.  I never wore J Brand jeans in the past, but based on how much I like these maternity jeans, I will definitely be looking to add a pair or two of regular J Brands after the baby comes!
