Confession: I am 27 years old and still wear American Eagle jeans. That’s kind of hard and absolutely embarrassing to admit. They are the only jeans that seem to fit properly and still be long enough for my legs. Everything else I either am required to wear a belt or they look like I am ready for the great flood of 2014. I don’t win in the finding nice jeans department. So I stick with what I know. Except the problem is I’ve been wearing American Eagle jeans for the last ten years. And now I’m a mom. So. There’s that.
I’m all for AE jeans still but they’re not all for me anymore. I think the low rise jeans are even lower than they used to be. Nonetheless they are a little too low for the mom me. I bought these back when it was cute to have a little booty crack showing. Oh wait, that was NEVER cute. Hence the reason I’ve been putting my belt loop on the last hole since the beginning of time.
Moral of the story is I need new jeans. But WEAR do I find jeans that are somewhere in the middle of showing the goods in the rear end and touching your underboobs? I know what brands I would like to buy…if I was willing to spend $200 on a pair of jeans. But yeah, I don’t have that kinda money to blow especially when the odds of spit up getting all over them are pretty high up there.
I need your help! Where do you all find cute jeans that don’t look/feel too young or too old? $75 for a pair of jeans is my max…and that’s even pushing it! I got a few suggestions when I posted this question on Facebook a couple weeks back but I wanted to see if anyone else had suggestions.
On a happier note, maybe you want to enter this giveaway. You know, so you can buy yourself a nice pair of...I don't know...jeans?
