Phewph, guys! We’ve been traveling all over the place for work lately and I’m so happy to be able to say we’re staying in one place until the end of the year. Don’t get me wrong — I love traveling, but when the holidays are here I kind of just want to be close to home and feel comfy and cozy. I’ve been living in lots of plaid, and these distressed jeans that I can’t, for some reason, seem to leave behind when I’m traveling.
I told you about my love for Hudson jeans before, and I swear they somehow magically fit my body like no jeans I’ve ever tried (they don’t even stretch out after a few wears!). I’m especially loving this pair because they’re kind of the opposite of mom jeans. (“I’m not like a regular mom, I’m a cool mom!” If you know that quote please tell me and we can be best friends forever.) Call me crazy, but I’ve kind of tried to almost up my style game a little bit since Henry was born. It just makes me feel better, ya know? When I’m at least somewhat put together I feel at my best, like I can tackle everything a day in the life of a mom throws at me. And truly, wardrobe workhorses like a good pair of jeans take the guesswork out of getting dressed in the morning and make my day that much easier.
And since we’re talking about mom stuff, this photo kills me:
Henry found something across the street that was absolutely fascinating and he had to tell me right this minute. I think it was a dog.
One little detail on these I love is the unfinished hem! It’s got a little British rock vibe that is just so cool-girl, and you can dress it up with heels or down with some flats for running around during the day. Perfect with a comfy plaid top, kinda untucked for that oh-I-can’t-be-bothered-to-tuck-in-my-shirt-the-whole-way look, which I’m a fan of. A simple watch, a colorful bag, and out the door.
Give it to me straight — do you do distressed denim? Or are you more of a clean cut gal (or guy!)? Not gonna lie, the torn out knees in these bad boys are making me feel kind of cool. Big high five to Hudson for helping moms everywhere stay on top of their denim game! xoxo
