Up until recently, mom jeans have been frowned upon and regarded as unfashionable and unflattering!
Truth be told, I’ve often questioned the sanity of women who willingly purchased mom jeans. I wondered why they would voluntarily choose to spend money on such a hideous design; My lack of understanding led me to make this solemn promise to myself : I Charlotte Betts will never purchase/wear a pair of those style forsaken pants.
I felt pretty confident about my vow and life as I knew it was good! I was rocking the skinny jeans, the flares and the straight legs.. All but the moms!
Then the inevitable happened. While shopping at f21, one of the employees suggested I check out the new shipments that they just received, she pointed to a wall adorned with denim. “Make sure to take a look at our 90’s inspired mom jeans” she said as she walked away. I looked at her, I looked at the wall and thought, is she crazy? But as I approached the wall and saw the endless options and picked up a pair. I tried them on and … gasped! I loved them! Life as I knew it had changed!
Coined mom jeans because they were usually worn by moms, the classic high waist and slightly tapered pants are not solely for mothers! So if you feel like rocking a pair, please do so!
Pledging to never wear mj’s is only one of the many things I vowed to never do before becoming mom to my girls; below I’m sharing three more.
I. i always said that I wouldn’t be that mom, you know the one who is constantly sharing pics of her kids on her social media accounts. clearly I lied! #neversaynever
III. drive a bigger car. although i have not quite embraced the minivan and I most likely wont! we are however looking for a bigger car, because two car seats in a sedan = not cool!
So tell me, what are some of the things you vowed to never do? Drop them below, or take a pic, post it on IG or twitter and tag #milknhonee #neversaynever so I can see and share on the blog on my next blog post where I will elaborate on the #neversaynever’s of mommyhood.
