Finding jeans is such a rigorous task. And yes, I meant to say task because no one ever gets excited to shop for jeans. It’s literally one of the hardest things to shop for as a woman. We want comfort, we want sturdiness of the material, we want stretch, we want it to hug our curves, we want them to have just the right amount of wiggle room so we can eat a great lunch and still fit them and not to mention, we want them to fit our ankles, thighs, hips, and waist properly. If you are anything like me, you probably don’t even look for jeans anymore. Instead, I’ll either overlook the jeans section entirely or casually make my way over to quickly scan the area from a distance (lol, honestly!). If something stands out, I’ll take a good hard look at it and just stare, trying to picture how it will fit. If not, then I just keep it moving to other items. This was exactly the process when I came across these amazing jeans from American Eagle!
My husband wanted to check out a specific item from AE so we made our way there. If you’ve ever been to one of their brick-and-mortars, you know that they are super proud of their jeans and dedicate almost the entire front half of the store to showcasing the variety of styles, cuts and colors their jeans come in. So naturally.. I scanned the area and I saw 2 pairs that just really stood out. I’ve wanted to add some mom jeans to my closet but of course, have been out of luck. After my husband convinced me to try them on (I hate trying on clothes at the store), I finally made my way to the dressing room and I probably took way too much time in there because I LOVED the way my jeans fit! Both of them! I was 2 for 2! That is a major girl boss moment, you guys. They are both the Mom Jean in a relaxed, regular fit – one in light vintage and the other in cool classic (could not find online but I’m sure they have them in store).
The quality of the jeans are amazing and they are so comfortable. What’s even better is that they offer their jeans in short, regular or long so accommodate different leg lengths – how considerate! The relaxed fit Mom Jeans fit my waist well and offer just the right amount of looseness on my thighs and booty (so important). And because they are not distressed, I can wear them to work! I haven’t shopped at American Eagle since I was in high school or college so I have to admit AE never came to mind as I’ve been looking for Mom Jeans but I’m so glad I happened to come across these. They have easily become my go-to’s to dress up or down.
