My wishes for cooler weather have finally come true... a cold front has come through Texas and I can finally whip out my fall clothing! I recently went on a quick trip back to the Midwest and in planning for that trip, I realized how little I've added to my fall/winter wardrobe over the past few years that I've lived in Texas.
So, I was on the hunt for a couple of new sweaters, but since I've been so busy I was hoping that I could find something online. I had never bought clothing from Amazon before, but seeing as I have a Prime membership, I knew it would be super convenient if I could find something cute from there. Well you guys, I struck gold!
I know buying online can be hit or miss since you don't have the opportunity to try on the clothing beforehand, but I was so lucky that this sweater fits so nicely!
The sweater is an oversized fit, so it has a slouchy feel and look without being too baggy. It's off the shoulder and the fabric is a thinner knit, so it's a good sweater to...more
Today, I'm talking all about Boyfriend jeans! Ya'll. I love these jeans sooo much. I love them even MORE than the Mom jeans I shared in my last post!
These boyfriend jeans are slouchy, comfy, a little bit baggy, but all without the risk of looking ill-fitting. They're the perfect denim if you want something super casual to throw on.
The biggest difference between Boyfriend jeans and Mom jeans? For one thing, Boyfriend jeans sit lower on the hips (below the bellybutton) while Mom jeans are high-waisted. I'd say the other main difference is that Boyfriend jeans have a loose/baggy fit throughout the whole pant; whereas, Mom jeans I'd call more of a relaxed fit than a loose or baggy fit.
Between the two, I like boyfriend jeans a little bit more! Just for the comfort.more
Mom jeans have been my latest obsession— and also, just looser fitting clothing in general! All throughout high school and college I was attached to my skinny jeans and tight dresses. But recently, this last year especially, I've really gravitated toward clothing that provides more comfort.
Obviously, it's common knowledge that fashion styles are recycled and in recent times, we've seen a resurgence of 80's and 90's trends (along with other decades) in our favorite stores and boutiques. The last couple of years, I've noticed celebrities wearing baggy, but stylish clothes (think Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid) and ever since have been wanting to dress myself into something similar!
So, what ARE Mom jeans?
The name 'Mom jeans' may dredge up some flashbacks of unflattering, unfashionable denim from the 80's and 90's— but, 2020 Mom jeans are nothing like the Mom jeans of the past.
These Mom jeans are high-waisted with a looser fit around the legs and zipper area. They're a straight pant, neither flared nor fitted around the ankles; and, while the fit is relaxed...more
