BLANQI style - bump or no bump:) // Review + giveaway!

It's nearly the weekend folks! I'm always so relieved when I get a post out for you guys that I feel answers a bunch of your questions, and today's post featuring these support leggings from Blanqi is just such a post!
By way of better introducing you to today's topic I just want to go over the first rules of my blog regarding sponsored content and reviews of products here, etc, to quickly remind you guys that no products are used or worn or talked about here in this space that I haven't personally hand-picked and chosen to share with you, and that I don't truly/genuinely love! Are we clear? haha
Okay, that being said, there are still those items that when I finally receive them in the mail I am so surprised and delighted at them exceeding my high expectations that I can't help but exclaim aloud how comfortable they are and how much I love them (to the empty room), and then I'll even run to find Martin and proceed to do a jazzy moonwalk with sound-effects to show them off for him... :) I am of course describing my experience at receiving these leggings! ...though it has been known to happen a few times before.haha
I get questions about my closet staples all the time, I get questions about my pregnancy wardrobe essentials, I get questions about items that will work weather you're pregnant or not (probably since I've been pregnant four times in the last four years.haha ), and these leggings my friends are in the top items on all those lists.

These babies are great for every season, they work for just about any occasion, they're extremely easy to style, and they're comfortable enough that you'll find yourself living in them all the time.haha I love to pair them with short dresses and heels for date nights, with baggy t-shirts for lounging around the house, with my knee boots and a cardigan for running errands, and with my favorite tank-top for working out! So so versatile.
Obviously they work for when you're not pregnant (just a food baby here:)), but the support of the stretchy fabric is the kind you can only dream about when you're pregnant.haha It's so so soft to the touch, and so incredibly light-weight without being see-through at all, which is so hard to find in leggings isn't it?! They're also thick enough of a weave to provide full coverage, the top waistband reaches comfortably to up under my bust-line, and they're versatile enough that you could also keep them as capri length if you wanted.
wearing: beanie - c/o target (old) // necklace - c/o bip and bop // shirt - h&m // cardigan - ross // jacket - c/o chicwish // support leggings - c/o BLANQI // boots - tj-maxx (steve madden brand)

Well have I gushed enough about them to you? haha Now for the best part, the amazing people over at Blanqi are giving away one pair of these leggings to a one of you lucky ladies! Remember- bump or no bump, you will live in these things! haha alrighty I'll shut up now because you know the drill from here:)
The giveaway will go for one week and the winner will be announced in this post and across social media. And that's it! I've been so excited for Fall to arrive lately, and since September is just around the corner it's the perfect time to be adding new autumn staples to your closet! We had a couple rainy and chillier days here this last week and it's been fun breaking out light jackets and beanie hats:) I hope you've enjoyed todays post, and I hope you have good luck with the giveaway! xo
P.S. In case you're interested in keeping up with my videos that won't necessarily be on the blog:) :

  2. Ooh, I'm just starting to sport a pretty good little bump at 18 weeks, and these leggings sound wonderful as we head into fall!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Love your outfit and love how these leggings are so versatile!
    I think I would pair the leggings the same way you did. I'm always having trouble finding the right pair of pants that will tuck nicely into boots without the pants bunching up and looking all kinds of wrong!

    Thanks for the giveaway and for introducing me to this company! (:

  6. Like most people, I like to wear my leggings with a shirt or sweater long enough to cover my bum. :)

  7. Your hair is absolutely beautiful! I have quite long hair but it doesn't curl like that (to be honest, it doesn't really do anything full-stop!). I also love the combination of the cardigan and the jacket, the colours coordinate really well! I really love autumn (or fall), and this look suits it really well :)

  15. Wow, your hair just gets prettier and prettier! Does it take you a long time to curl your hair? It's so long!

    I'd pair my legging with a long fuzzy sweather, especially now that it's almost fall!

  21. I looooove black leggings. And I have been looking at these for a few weeks now. I was thinking that maybe they would suck me in, in all the right places since I had my baby. I would pair them with black combat boots or riding boots and a drapey open front cardigan and maybe a graphic tee. But I really like that green jacket you have on! I have been looking for one like that!

  67. I would love to win these awesome leggings! They'd be great for now and also if I'm able to get pregnant again. I've had two early miscarriages, so I've never gotten to the point of actually wearing maternity clothes! You styled them so well and as always your hair is stunning! I plan to Henna my hair next week and I'm hoping to come out with a shade at least similar to yours, of course because you only have the most gorgeous hair color EVER!
