Wardrobe Essential – The Peg Pant

October 15, 2013

I live in peg pants now, and I have it in all different prints. Not only is it trending now and has a menswear-chic look, the utterly flattering low slung and slouchy style also helps to conceal every unflattering bit from the waist down! My favorite has to be the Joie Mariner Pants in the most classic color of black (also comes in navy). It has an elastic waist band with legs that are tapered with a slouchy slim fit. It requires no maintenance as the fabric doesn’t wrinkle which is perfect for the busy mums like me.

I have been holding out on my shopping just for the Shopbop Family and Friend’s Sale which finally starts today! Enter code INTHEFAMILY25 for 25% off your order.

On a side note, here are some fun stats about my weight loss journey.

Total weight gain during pregnancy = 13 kgs

No. of Month since the delivery = 2 months

Total weight lost so far = 6 kgs

Goal = Another 7-8 kgs to lose!

You look great! I would never guess you just had a baby. I want to get some peg pants but i wonder if if they would look flattering on me.

I’m sure they would! I find that the slim fit ones are more flattering on most figures 🙂

You look beautiful especially for someone who just had a kid and having sleepless nights? Love to hear about how you lost 6kgs thus far. I’ve been trying to lose 1 sad kilo and it’s been a torturous feat.

Thank you Tracy! I think what I have lost far were just the baby weight and the water retention lol. It is going to be a long journey for me to shed more weight as well!
