Acid Wash Jeans Three Ways (Mom Edition)

 




If you follow me on IG (and do if you don't 😀), you might have seen my IG stories and my shopping adventure for jeans with my teenage daughter.  I don't own a lot of jeans, a pair or two, because they aren't something that I can wear to work other than Fridays so for the most part I tend to buy things that can double up as both work and home appropriate.  I have been saying I need to update my jean game for a while now but honestly didn't know where to start.  I also knew that I wanted to go with a "mom jean" look this time around, although I am still keeping my one pair of skinny jeans.  I wanted  high waisted, relaxed fit and a lighter denim for spring and summer.  I also needed to avoid holes because I can't wear them to work.  My daughter LOVES shopping at Garage Clothing so she took me there.  MOMS, I found not only one but two pairs of jeans I was really contemplating and they fit perfectly.  I was instantly drawn to these slightly acid washed, marble jeans but the other ones I tried on were more that classic look and light blue denim color.  The girl at the store said these might be a little more difficult to match and pair up with various tops, so I decided to bring them home and see what I had in my closet to go with them.  I have LOTS of options and ended up keeping them and loving them!!!  Here are three ways that moms who don't want to wear a crop top can style these jeans!


#1  Edgy Style:  Graphic Tee, Mom Jeans, Leather Jacket + Sneaks
I love this look, probably because it's a little bit like playing dress up for me.  If you are a regular reader you've probably noticed I am more of the classic and feminine, flirty, style.  But I absolutely love this look and feel completely comfortable in it.  A good oversized graphic tee, my leather jacket and sneaks.   I also through some shades on because a) it's spring and sunny and b) they add a little more drama. Weekend ready!







#2 Off to the Office:  Mom Jeans, Oversized Blazer + Pumps
They totally work for the office and  you are ready to meet up for a drink on a patio right after work!  I love how this look came together and it's one that I have already worn to work and had a ton of complements on.  I added some H & B sparkle to the outfit with the earrings and a simple initial necklace, and even though I have to wear a mask in the school, when I am gong to be having zoom meetings, I also through on some bold read lipstick.  




#3 Pop of Color:  Jean, Shoes & top same color family, Pop of color (purse/jewelry)
I love my Kate Spade bag and it's bold color!  It's a favorite in my closet in the spring/summer and always puts a smile on my face.  One day when we are allowed to travel again, a visit to a Kate Spade store is going to be right up there on my list.    This look is fairly monochromatic with the greys and blues, and the unexpected pop of coral from the purse just gives this outfit enough interest without being flashy or trying too hard.







Thanks for stopping by friends!  Have a lovely weekend.

    1. Thank you Jill. When I was in the store the girl warned me that it might be hard to style them, but I think it's because I had a top on that wasn't the best match and honestly I wasn't about to try them on with a tiny crop top that was all over their store, not really my style at this point. Hahahaha.

  4. Those jeans are great on you and it's so good you already have 3 outfits in mind for them! I think the first with the graphic tee is my favourite - graphic tee and leather jacket will never not look good with denim - no matter what style of denim you pair it with! :) The pop of colour with your bag in the last outfit is great too - it's why I like bright bags!

    Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup :) Hope that you have a nice weekend ahead of you!

    1. You are an expert on pops of colors with your bags! Thanks so much for the compliment. I do think you are 100% right, graphic tees, denim and leather where just all made for each other.

  5. I am the opposite of you, I have so many jeans I can't close my drawer that has them all in it! BUT, I can see when you can't wear them to work and you don't have varieties that are distressed/holy versus not, etc. that you don't need as many. I really need to go through all of mine and figure out which ones I really wear. I LOVE the dressed up look with these jeans and then how you turn around and made them a lot more causal. You're an expert at this!

    1. You just give the best compliments in the world!!!! I am a big supporter of buying the items that you can actually get wear out of, so that really does have to match your day to day lifestyle.

  7. All three looks are beautiful and serve different purpose. I can also relate why you only own two pairs. That's the opposite for me when it comes to work outfit because most, if not all, of my jobs didn't require to be dressed up. But back to the jeans, I love jeans and live in it. Though I don't own a pair of mom jeans, I am loving this one that you are wearing. It's not the standard blue jean and I love how easy it looks regardless of how it's styled. Cute bag btw!

    1. I am a huge believer that the items we choose to purchase really have to work for our lifestyles, with an odd piece here and there that you buy for fun! I am loving these jeans and actually ended up thrifting another pair of Garage brand mom jeans that have holes because they were a great deal and I can wear them on the weekends!

    1. You totally inspire me to be a little more edgy! I love that look too. It makes me feel like myself way back in the day. Hahahaha. Plus it's fun to borrow a t-shirt from my teens closet every once in a while.

  9. You've never looked better. Love these looks. Have a tab open to check out the Mom jeans. Love the first look but like the jeans with the pumps and the monochromatic palette, too. Just darling.
