nora and i have this idea that we are going to try as hard as we can to bring (so called) ugly pants back. i happen to love ugly pants. i think if they are styled right, they can actually look super cute. so, we bought some for our sale and we will work our styling magic to make people realize that they are in fact stylish and adorable! anyone? anyone? just wait and see, they will be back in style soon!
i bought these jeans for the specific purpose of doing a "style me" post. they were only $1, so i didn't have much to lose. but when i brought them home, i didn't get a great reaction. my mother-in-law was over, and she is one of the nicest people in the world. not kidding. it is a very rare occasion when she says anything bad about anything or anyone. but when i brought these jeans home and showed her, she just said, "hmm. interesting." that's about as mean as it gets for her. i knew i was in for a challenge.
so, here are the infamous mom jeans:
the high elastic waist, the front double pockets, no back pockets, tapered leg. it doesn't get any better than this!
and here is how i styled them:
sorry, there was no applique sweater vest to be paired with these!
jeans ~ thrifted
tank ~ so old, i'm not sure where it's from
shoes ~ delicious, ebay
necklace/earrings ~ F21
belt ~ Target
what do you think? would you ever wear mom jeans?
