Reason #1: Jeans are comfortable, flattering, and fashionable. I sometimes see moms that successfully pull off the stretchy yoga pants and tee look with confidence, but I always feel sort-of grungy in that get-up.
Reason #2: I run around our great room daily, as my girls laugh and yell: "Chase me!" I play "Duck, Duck, Goose." I jump across pretend oceans to escape pirates and sharks. Such is life with an 18-month-old and a 4-year-old. Don't get me wrong - I like pencil skirts and flouncy dresses too, but...they're not particularly conducive to the life of a young mother.
Reason #3: Jeans are extremely versatile (thus, they are very affordable if you look at them from a cost/per wear perspective). If I buy a well-fitting pair, I can wear it a hundred different ways. With tank tops, fancy blouses, even dresses. [I might try to bring back the dress-over-jeans look].
Dressbarn (a clothing retailer with over 800 stores nationwide) recently sent me shopping and I have to admit that I was a little bit skeptical. I've always kind of thought DB was for...ahem...older women. Shockingly (to me), I found a pair of embroidered jeans for $29.99 and a blouse-y peasant top for around 30 bucks (see picture) within 10 minutes of walking in the store.
P.S. DB just announced their online shop. You can now buy the brand's clothing online for the 1st time ever. Click each image for more details:
Do you shop at dressbarn (why or why not)? What do you wear on most days?
