Can I let you in on a little secret? These mom jeans fit perfectly fine before the Rona hit! Once we were quarantined I never put on jeans, duh, and it was also summer. Well, once everything started opening back up, guess what?! These jeans no longer fit! I could button them but it was muffin top galore and so uncomfortable! My mind kept saying, “Well they fit 4 months ago what happened” but the jeans just didn’t agree”. Fast forward six months and they finally fit!
All this to say, a size of clothing doesn’t matter! Who didn’t gain a few extra pounds during quarantine?! There were some days where I felt discouraged and wonderes why none of my shorts, pants skirts, etc. weren’t fitting anymore. I questioned if I should change my diet, exercise more, be more restrictive, then I said NO to all those sizes and donated all the old clothes that didn’t fit. Instead I just wore lots of dresses. 🤣🤣🤣
Wearing a specific size really does not matter! I ordered new white jeans in a size larger than I normally do and am happy with how they fit. No matter your weight or clothing size, your still have value, worth and are beautiful!

Mom jeans are definitely one piece of clothing I never thought I’d wear till I tried them on! These American Eagle pair jeans are extremely flattering, have a casual and semi relaxed fit and hit right above the ankle! They hug your curves in just the right way and I would choose them any day over skinny jeans!
They are made with polyester and cotton. So while they don’t have spandex and are not extremely stretchy like skinny jeans, if you size up one size, they will have a relaxed fit to them. I’m wearing a size 6 and find they start out more fitted and stretch out as you wear them all day into a more relaxed fit.
I styled them with this olive green top I recently picked up from LOFT! Getting dressed in Fall in Florida is always a challenge. It’s not that I don’t want to wear all of the puffer vests, coats, sweaters, cozy dresses and booties. I do! It’s just not realistic. Instead, it’s easier to stick to a color palate of fall hues and wear lots of lightweight tops, denim and dressed in those colors. Next week I have a few fall dresses to show you where I followed the “fall hue” rule!
This top is lightweight, 100% cotton, has bold sleeves and comes in navy! It looks as cute styled casually with mom jeans and it would styled tucked in with a corduroy skirt! To top it off, I styled it with raffia accessories and shoes!
Lots of Sunshine,
