What once seemed to be reserved for moms is now fair game for anyone, and women should be shouting from the rooftops about it. What am I talking about? High waist jeans of course! I used to wear my jeans as low as I could. Hip huggers and low rise jeans were my best friends. And then it happened. Muffin top. Age. Wisdom. Whatever you want to call it. And that was long before Leighton was even born. And since then I've realized how amazing high waisted jeans are. They actually hit at your true waist...you know, where your waist is actually the smallest. High waist jeans actually emphasize your small waist and curves and make you look even smaller. That's all it took to sell me on them.
I immediately fell in love with this high waist destructed pair of jeans from Lucky Brand. I know what you're thinking. Wait, those jeans are Lucky Brand?! Yep! And guess what, so is this gorgeous floral print blouse. While I absolutely love Lucky Brand's classic denim styles, they are so much more than just denim. Think floral blouses with a boho feel, jewelry, dresses, suiting, cocktail attire, leather jackets and even graphic tees. Basically they have everything you want to keep you feeling like a cool girl. Just because I'm a mom doesn't mean I have to dress like what we all used to envision moms wearing. This is the new mom. The mom who gets up at 5:00, feeds the dogs, gets ready for work, comes home 12 hours later, cooks dinner, feeds the toddler, bathes the toddler, plays with the toddler, reads books to the toddler, puts the toddler to bed and then climbs into bed to watch a movie with her husband for some much needed relaxation time (all the while thinking I miss my toddler and need more hours in the day!) This is the new mom. The multi-tasking mom. And these are the new mom jeans. The high waist mom jeans.
There are so many ways to style high waist jeans, but I love a good pair of jeans dressed up so I paired mine with a pretty flowy blouse and booties. I think it has such a boho meets edgy meets carefree vibe. Forget the fact that I only had 2 minutes to myself today, was too busy at work to eat lunch, and then came home to a toddler who refused to get out of the vehicle because she wanted to keep watching her dvd in there. This outfit is all about looking pulled together. Gone are the days of only wearing jeans when you're lounging around the house or doing projects around the house. Jeans are now so much more than casual. They are the new go-to choice for date nights and parties. Shane has even wore them to a couple casual weddings, and I wear them all the time to our casual church. Jeans are such a great versatile piece, just like Lucky Brand. From skinny to straight to bootcut to flare to crop to boyfriend, they have every style you would ever want. And they have some great specials going on right now! Get $20 off any purchase here.
