Diabetics rejoice! Finally style that works for our insulin pumping needs thanks to One Tribe Apparel! My daughter and I are both Type 1 Diabetics and I can't not tell you how troublesome it is to find Spring and Summer styles that work with our insulin pumps. In the Winter and Fall it is not so bad because everyone is wearing more clothing, bulkier clothing that makes it a lot easier to tuck away, store, or even completely hide the pump. In the summer clothing is thinner, less of it, and being discrete aside, because we are not ashamed of our pumps, they save our lives every day, but just finding a place to attach them where they are secure is a big issue.
When I first set out to do this article about these super cute Aladdin Pants from One Tribe Apparel I had no idea I would end up talking about insulin pumps and fashion. I just simply love their clothing and wanted to share this style with you, but something else evolved. Hopefully if there are insulin pumpers out there looking for some nice summer fashions they can easily wear with their pumps they will find this!
You may be familiar with One Tribe Apparel's Harem Pants from my previous blog posts as well as a giveaway I have running, or at least running at the time of this article being written. One Tribe Apparel is a brand that gives back which is something I truly appreciate. One dollar of every item sold goes to support the Banyan Center which provides free education to Burmese refugee children. You can read more about this on the One Tribe Apparel Website.
I also appreciate that their fashions are affordable plus you can get five dollars off your first purchase if you sign up for their newsletter.
The day I decided to take these photos I had not even planned for a photo shoot. I just woke up and decided I wanted to wear something comfortable, something I could feel relaxed in all day. One Tribe Apparel sure is the answer to easy and comfortable fashion! In fact it felt like a pajama day all day yet I ran errands, went out in public, and was in perfect style the entire time, perfect style in comfort!
The Aladdin pants come in eight gorgeous colors, I bought the sky blue color and I find that it goes with so many different tops! I was going to write this post wearing a white boho style top but in the blogging world things sometimes need to happen randomly. The weather was beautiful, I felt so good in my sky blue Aladdin pants and vibrant purple top from Bepei fashion on Amazon, that I decided it was just the day I would have my hubby take some blog photos. By the way the Bepei top comes in eight gorgeous colors as well. The perfect way to mix and match some great outfits.
I accessorized this outfit with jewelry also available on Amazon:
AmorWing Ladies 8mm Labradorite with Variscite Mala Yoga Bracelet
Also bracelets from https://sashkaco.com/
As for the insulin pump ... well the Aladdin pants have a pocket but not just your typical pocket but a pocket that hangs from the pants and is the perfect place for a small cell phone, some cash or credit cards, or an insulin pump!
An insulin pump is about the size of a pager, if you recall those haha. This pocket is in the best place to have easy access to it, which is a necessity for diabetics, yet stores it safely and securely without creating a bump under your top. Often times it is not so much about securing the pump or hiding it but finding a place that does not make some unusual bump on the waist line or on the chest when trying to tuck it or clip it onto a bra.
This cute functional pocket on the Aladdin Pants from One Tribe Apparel makes it simple to securely store, and hide your insulin pump without fear of it falling off which can and does happen when clipping on the waistline of pants! Sometimes this causes the tubing to come out of the skin which can be painful but is always inconvenient. Not to mention costly because each tubing, and site costs money even when you have good insurance!
Also notice the cute waistband on these pants! The waistband is what inspired me to wear the purple top. I love it when I get inspiration from the details on a clothing item.
Diabetic or not we all have something we want to take along with us while shopping, running errands, and such but in the summer especially when it is hot outside we often do not want to lug a bag around with us. The Aladdin pants are perfect for the pool or beach, or just a day out enjoying nature, a place to keep a few necessities without worry of losing them.
Comfortable, easy to wear, breezy, stay in your PJ's all day feel of One Tribe Apparel Aladdin pants have won my heart. Now the biggest issue for me is deciding which color to get next!
