Mom Jeans – a BIG no-no! I mean, a HUGE NO NO. It’s been 2 weeks to the day since I had Henry. And there’s one thing left that I can’t wait to do (I’ve already have my sushi, Coors Light, Margarita, hot bath, and lobster roll!)… wear my jeans. Oh, yeah baby… jeans without a front panel, without my BellaBand and without adjustable side straps. A mom jeans outfit is not in my frame of mind right now. It’s kind of as far away from my mind as humanly possible!
Mom Jeans Outfit
I just want me my jeans. My perfect, broken-in, fit-me-as-if-they-were-made-for-me jeans. Not a full mom jeans outfit, jeans that would fit me to a tee and make me feel comfortable and (dare I say it) sexy. I was telling my husband this last night as we were walking around our local mall. My 2 1/2-year-old Alexander asked me what jeans were. So every time we walked by a store that had jeans in the window, I kept pointing them out to Alexander.
He seemed to get the point…
Except when he saw a women dressed in jeans that looked like this (no joke), and he said, “Mommy, you want jeans like that lady’s!”
Oh yes, this is EXACTLY what the jeans looked like.
MOM JEANS! LOL! How funny is it that he already knew!? That he already guessed it! That he already was able to understand the basics of a mom jeans outfit! Honestly, to borrow from the fabulous Stacy London of “What Not To Wear,” when the top button of your pants could double as a push-up bra, that should be a RED FLAG that something’s wrong!
No, no, no, my darling Alexander. When Mommy says she can’t wait to be back in my jeans, I’m talking…
So to my jeans: Stay tuned. I will be coming soon!
Just keep “hanging” out until the time (and the size) is right! I know that I’m ready for my jeans to magically appear and be ready back on my body, but it’s still not the perfect time quite yet. I have some working out to do and need to keep myself on track. I also know that I’m addicted to the gym right now, so the more I’m there and really keep my body moving – the better!! I’m a jean lover, so that’s more motivation for me to keep it going!
(I’m a jean-junkie. This is like 1/3 of my jeans collection. The rest are folded on the floor underneath… too embarrassed to photograph!)
