I'm sure you guys have seen this trend everywhere now. Mom jeans. How are you feeling about them? Do you love 'em? Hate 'em?
I'm not usually one to follow trends and the reality is, I hate wasting money on fast fashion. Yes I shop at Zara and H&M but only for things I love. If I don't love it, I don't buy it. That's my shopping philosophy.
Anyway, after coming across a pair of 3x1 jeans on super sale, I thought, "This is it. My very own pair of mom jeans!" Yasssss.
I felt all cool and stylish and shit when we shot this outfit. Then I got home and reality showed up on my MacBook Air upon downloading everything. The mom jeans had betrayed me and made my legs look short and wide. Oh fuck.
Obviously I picked the most flattering photos to feature here, but let me tell you those jeans went back to the store the next day!
I don't know how Leandra and Jeanne do it because when I try wearing a leg wider than a straight cut, I always end up resembling a Hobbit. I'm petite and short waisted so all of that extra fabric seems to swallow me right up.
The search continues since my desire for mom jeans is still out of control. I recently saw a pair at Topshop, appropriately labeled, MOM, so I might go back for those and if they don't work out, well I'm breaking up with mom and remaining faithful to my skinnies.
