My name is Emily and I'm addicted to mom jeans. This newly discovered addiction happened when I decided to buy an updated version of my favorite pair of ASOS jeans (black high waisted with ripped knees), but in a lighter wash and wayyy higher rise. It's so funny that the once heinous trend of the 80's and 90's that our moms wore to showcase their butts in the most unflattering of ways (visions of pancakes evoked here) has now become super sexy and modern for the ladies of today. Is it just that our butts are more perky these days (thank you, squats), or are the jeans themselves just cut in a more curve-friendly way? I don't know, but I'm into it. I don't think there was a single day last week that I didn't wear these bad boys, and with this look I decided to go for a casual-yet-not-so-casual day to night feel. I cannot recommend investing in this style enough - trust me, your bum will thank you.
