Mom Jeans

Just saying "mom jeans" sends me into serious fits of the giggles. :D When I think of mom jeans my mind instantly goes to the popular SNL skit of the same name. To me, THIS is what mom jeans have always been. And if you can't click the link (and/or have been living blissfully oblivious) they look a little something like this:

"I'm not a woman anymore - I'm a mom!"
Hehe, gets me every time.

The worst offense of these jeans, of course, is that they make the wearer appear a BAZILLION times bigger than they actually are. I'm not telling all ladies to go out there and shake what their mama gave them for the whole world to see, but if you've ever had a great pair of jeans that fit just right, you know what a travesty these things are. You can still be modest and not wear belly button eaters. 

The thing is, mom jeans aren't always as obvious at first glance as the ones in that picture. In fact, after a friend shared a blog post with me, I realized that I might actually be a mom jeans offender. ME. I'm 27 years old, for crying out loud! But it's true. I read the post in horror as I discovered that some of the places I buy jeans from are the worst mom jean offenders of all. Are YOU walking around in mom jeans and don't even realize it?

All my ladies should check out this blog post:

And see if your jeans are actually made for your body, or if you're walking around looking bigger than necessary from behind. :)

This is all meant in fun, and I promise I won't make fun of you if these are actually your jeans of choice. We wouldn't want to put Old Navy out of business after all. Haha. And admittedly, the author of this blog post models some jeans that I couldn't imagine my own mom wearing. Bling on the butt? Erm...I don't know - sorry mom. :) Still, it's chock full of pictures and tips to help you on your next jeans buying adventure. (Which for me will be about ten pounds from now!)

Hope you all have a great day, and don't feel too bad if your sporting mom jeans today...I didn't know I was, either. :)

Bahahah...the blog post you linked to is hilarious! I too have wondered for many years if I was the only female out there who could not see the goodness of Old Navy or Gap jeans....and now I know :)
One of my BFF's is let's just say a bit 'old school' on the way she dresses - Yep, mom jeans are her style. Not too long ago she came to our house on a day I was home with the kids. I had been lounging in a random pair of Gap jeans I save specifically for home days. Not long after she arrived, she complimented so seriously on my 'very, nice jeans...look good on you!' took all I had not to laugh :D

Everyone has their own style.

But now I can sleep better at night knowing I'm not the only disappointed girl when trying on Old Navy and GAP jeans!!

Ha! You girls crack me up. :) Heather, I just got corrected by my three year old for saying "britches." (?) Watch your dang potty mouth - this is a family blog! Baha.

I have definitely been an offender of mom jeans...not on purpose of course! I read that blog post a couple of months ago & I refuse to buy any pants from Old Navy or Gap now!!
