I thought I was the daughter.

I bought these high wasted flare jeans at H&M when Jessica visited in November.  I thought they looked like old school Mudd jeans (aka unflattering) but she assured me they didn't. I trusted her because she is a trillion times more fashionable than I can ever hope to be. 

 Maybe I shouldn't have trusted her judgment because when I walked out wearing them this morning Simon gave me one look and said, 
"oh, so mom jeans are fashionable now?"
and did a lot of staring and laughing and more staring and even hiked his pants up to his ribcage to try and emulate my look. 

His jabs I could handle but when my mom walked out and took a gander and (seriously) said, 
"oh, are those Not Your Daughter's Jeans?"
I knew Jessica had led me astray.

  1. Hellllo, those are super-cute! I have a couple pair of high-waisteds and I loves them to death. You can rock anything you skinny minny. I even have a board I started on Pintrest to collect things to fight the muffin top. High-waisted is so in right now...especially for good-looking twenty-somethings such as ourselves...:)

  2. Aww, Simon and your mom were hard on you. I think the jeans are super cute. If it makes you feel any better, when my girls were in the NICU (so less that 6 weeks after they were born), my husband saw the top of my jeans after I had been pumping breastmilk and told me they looked like mom jeans. Because being post-partum, pumping, and having babies in the NICU aren't enough reasons to feel crummy, I needed that, too.

  3. I might be rather unfashionable but I LOVE those pants. I'm wearing a very similar pair today, in fact.

  4. NO WAY...they are super cute. We're doing a big push on flare denim right now at levi's ;)

    Danny always thinks my most trendy jeans are "mom jeans"...unless it's super skinny or a "legging" style he says, "oh, i see you're wearing your mom jeans today!"

  12. So glad you re-introduced me to NYDJ. I think I will be purchasing a pair in the near future now. The video testimonials on that site really convinced me that the goal is to be a hot mom and NYDJ are the way to do it. Maybe your mom was giving you a complement. That's what I say.

  13. Boo! Husbands should never be allowed to provide fashion commentary. Mine still thinks belts at the waist are "so 80s". I adore the jeans and agree with Jessica.

    Also the other day when I wore an old pair of low-rise jeans at Costco and had to choose between bending down to pick Piper's coat up off the floor or revealing the majority of my youknowwhat to my fellow shoppers, I wished I was wearing my higher-waisted jeans. Now I can never go back to that Costco, ever again.

  14. haha i like that we BOTH posted photos of ourselves in 'new looks' today and asked what people thought. I totally JUST saw this.

    i agree with sarah - never ask husbands about new trends. they dont know.

  17. So, I unwittingly bought some of the same not too long ago. After a moment of shame at the check out counter when I learned their true nature, I've never looked back. They are so comfortable and look even better on you.

    I guess you could say they're not your daughter's jeans in that they don't have snaps along the inseam...

  19. so so cute! i loveee! especially with the top -- where's that from?? xoxo

  20. I love them! I wish I had them. I might be visiting H&M soon for a pair of my own. And technically, you are a mom, and those are your jeans, so they are ONE MOM'S jeans… I think we should start turning this "mom jean" thing the other way, since so many moms (such as yourself) wear such cool jeans!

    ps: they remind me of these: http://www.downrightred.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/DariaWerbowyVogue2010May6.jpg which are anything but these so-called "mom jeans!"

  21. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! BAHAHAHAHA! Oh this was a funny one!

  22. You look super cute in those, but thanks to my thoughtless clicking on the NYDJ link provided, I am now being targeting with disturbing high-waisted advertisements promising a tight tushie after 40. That website was horrrrrifying.

  23. These jeans looks great on you!
    I'm chuckling over Simon's reaction! My husband would be the complete opposite. He's pretty skeptical about a lot of today's trends but whenever I mention high-waisted pants he's all for them. I think they would give me horrible mom-butt because I have such a big behind but he thinks that sounds great. ha!
