The Mom Jeans.

by Katelyn Block on December 28, 2011 · 34 comments

Today, I was given a shirt (vintage) from the Madre that was made for her 16th birthday, which technically was in the late 70′s early 80′s. This was really exciting to me.

It’s not couture or anything, but it’s my Mom’s, so I like that it has a story with it.

And then she gave me a pair of high-waisted jeans that would have been really cute had there not been the major “Mom” factor in the poochy pooch.

This takes cameltoe to a whole new level.

I promise I’m not a narcissist. But let’s be real. These jeans make me happy, as weird-looking as they are. Plus, they’re super comf. I can see myself lounging in these on a regular basis and watching Saved By the Bell.

What is one of your favorite vintage pieces?

Oh hot damn, those mom jeans are sexy.
My dad used to have a pair of black leather bell-bottoms that I wore for a play I was in during high school. They were so awesome. And he had a pretty sweet purple suede coat as well. I love looking through parents’ closets :)

I have “mom jeans” too but I love em. They fit rather well and I always tuck a cute top with a skinny belt and rock them. I got them for $5 at a thrift store. BALLIN

My mom’s junior prom dress from 1977… a peasant-y, hippie floaty cream maxi dress, complete with fringe shawl. I’m OBSESSED.

OMG I have a vintage trench coat that is MY LIFE! I love it!

Those jeans would make intensely cute shorts, especially if you added a lace cuff… just sayin’… :)

HAHAHA! I LOVE me some footie pajamas. I tried on momjeans by accident a couple a years ago and went into cold sweats, I couldn’t get them off fast enough! LOL Although they’d have matched my mini-van pretty well! Visiting from #fitfluential! Love this post!

I have some old jeans that my friend gave me after we played oven in his car and thus got disgustingly soaked with sweat. They were originally straight-leg women’s jeans that he sewed to be skinny jeans. They have two huge holes in the knees (which actually hit well below my knee because I am a midget) and have weird crossed out hearts drawn on them. They’re so unattractive, but oh so comfortable.
And that shirt, is supah freaking cool!
