A Cheeky Twist On Mom Jeans

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!
