As much as I'd kill to slither back into my favorite post-college low-rise, dangerously hip-hugging denim, well that's about as realistic as Kim K never posting another naked selfie. Sure they're sexy, but totally, unequivocally age-inappropriate!?? Yup! And with that, something I promised myself I'd never do, has become a reality....well, sort of.
By definition, mom jeans are hideous, pouch-protruding, wedgie-accentuating, dumpy threads of denim that should be tossed to back of our closets for...ETERNITY. That is, until now. It took a recent trip to CVS pharmacy for me to completely overhaul my closet and philosophy. Picture this...frantic mommy running after a crazy wild tot up and down the aisles until mid-rise rapidly turns into low-rise, as in, plumbers-crack fully friggin exposed. The poor check out lady had that "Oh bless her heart" look on her face when I limped my way up panting, sweating, on the verge of a full fashion meltdown. At that moment, mom jeans were about to creep their way into my wardrobe but not just any old frumpy mom jeans. After much research, I uncovered that cool mom jeans actually DO exist these days. Hallelujah! And everyone's taking a stab at em...J Brand, Mavi, Hudson- some with a super cheeky twist like the new Wedgie Jeans for Levi's...Here are a few faves. ENJOY!
