Hello my lovely people! In the beginning I said that this was SUPPOSED to be a fashion blog, which it is but I have yet to post anything fashion related on Simply Sunshine until now! But y’all lemme tell you how difficult it is to come up with content while being a full-time college student…. it’s fu#$%^& hard, okay! Luckily though, I knew this would happen so I got together with one of my friends from high school while I was home for break and I got some pictures taken! Look at me all prepared and stuff *hair flip*. Anywayyyssssss in this post I give two ideas on how to style mom jeans, kind of a cute and casual kind of deal I decided on. I will have everything listed at the end of the post with links on where I got these items and stuff like that if you want to purchase them yourself! Thanks for reading guys, love you all. ♥
To me there are certain staple pieces that belong in everyones wardrobe, and a pair of mom jeans is one of those pieces. Did you notice I said a “pair” of mom jeans? That’s because you honestly only need to make the purchase once and you’re set for a loooonnnngggg time. The first way I styled my pair of mom jeans, which are from American Eagle by the way, was for those of you that just want to be comfortable but still look trendy and cute. Any graphic tee is the way to go honestly. Just throw on a comfy t-shirt and some mom jeans and your already looking put together. I also paired the tee with a cardigan because ya know it’s winter time and not everyone lives in this wonderful Phoenix weather. Lately I’ve been into the whole idea of wearing my cardigans in a slouchy manner with one side not on my shoulder. If you don’t know what I mean, you can look at my Instagram post from last week because I can already tell my description of it was not on point. For shoes, any comfortable sneakers you have would work to complete the look. I decided to wear my new Old Skool Vans which I feel like everyone and their mom got for Christmas this year but I mean hey it would make it easy to re-create this look.
Okay this is the second way I styled mom jeans. I love the way this color of denim pairs with black so that’s the direction I decided to go in! So the top is just a plain black turtle neck which you can honestly get from anywhere and I paired it with a black distressed denim jacket! A regular denim jacket could work also for a cute denim on denim look. The hat obviously is not for everyone and gives this look kind of a western vibe with the belt too but oh well it still looks cute in my opinion. Since I just mentioned the belt, this was one of my best purchases ever! I love it so much and its so versatile. Double buckle belts have become very popular and I am all for it. As for the shoes, I think this is the part that takes it to the level of not being casual anymore. They are just simple black booties from Steve Madden which I loooove! They are a good height too, I think they are about 3 inches or 2.5, I’m not sure but I’m 5’9 so the height of a heel is perfect for me.
I hope you all enjoyed reading this and hopefully got some inspiration for your own pair of mom jeans! Love you all ♥
