Not your mama's jeans

There will always be one item of clothing that is quite simply my go-to for everything and I know I’m not alone. I’m talking about the solid pair of mom jeans.

I've always been obsessed with mom jeans because their styling options are endless. I strive to invest in multifunctional pieces that I can dress up or down and wear on different occasions.

In the case of mom jeans, you can dress it up with a nice blouse, classic gold hoops and a pair of heels. Or you can dress it down with a graphic tee and some sneakers, the styling world is literally your oyster. 

I got my mama jeans from an online store called ASOS.com. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE LOVEEEEEE this store. They have a wide variety of denim styles to pick from. The reason ASOS makes my heart beat a little faster than usual is because of their amazing discounts.

Most of their items go for up to 70% off and if you sign up for their student discount you can get another 10% off of your final purchase.  We are out here on a budget and ASOS is here for you boo boo, so make your way over and get you some ASOS jeans!

I chose to go for a more semi-casual look. I paired my mama jeans with one of my favorite simple white tee's, that I got from The Bee & the Fox.  It's cute and it's simple and it has a powerful message on it and you know how we feel about that; we love it!

In terms of accessorizing, I went for the bare minimum. I paired this outfit with gold chain link earrings, a pastel lilac satchel and added a pop of color with a pair of strappy fuchsia Krysten block heels. All these items were purchased from our very favorite local Target store. 

Check out the photos below to get a closer look at how I paired my outfit.

Never underestimate the power of a woman but also remember to never underestimate the power of mom jeans.

Talk to me in the comment section, how are you styling your mom jeans?

Catch you beautiful people somewhere on the interwebs!
