The phrase that, up until this point, has literally made me nauseous:


If you're like me, (whether you're a mom or not), you aren't the size you used to be when you invested in your premium denim collection. But ---  you aren't quite ready to invest on a new stack of baby blues to accommodate your new body. As "body positive" as I am, the fact of the matter is... I'm just not there yet.

I don't strive to be a certain size anymore (so ten years ago!), but I know I haven't worked hard enough to get to where I want to be.

Bottom line: Happy with your body or not,  girls gotta wear some jeans #AMIRIGHT?!

I have a major confession to make. I had my baby over a year ago... and I've been wearing LEGGINGS instead of REAL PANTS ever since.

The good news is... I didn't die!!!! I still went to work, I still looked good, and I rocked the %$&#* out of some maternity leggings. Like... literally. They are falling. Apart. 

And, for the past year, I've had it in my mind that it would definitely be the end of the world if I bought new pants. Definitely.

I've searched and searched and searched for a jean that would satisfy the following:


  1. Jeans that come up high enough (to not create love handles)!
  2. Jeans that don't fall down as you walk. 
  3. Jeans that are comfortable enough so you can bend over. 
  4. Jeans that make you LOOK FIIIIIINE.

One word...


Run, don't walk.

These are the best bang for your buck. Especially if you're not planning on being this size forever, you really shouldn't be out there spending hundreds of dollars on jeans.

 $30 never looked so fine!! I am so impressed by this new material and how it fits so snug, but is SO comfortable.

This may not surprise you, because we all know that Target was sent to us from the Lord above. 

I also found some great ones from a few other spots that I've linked at the bottom of this post! But what sold me on these Mossimo jeans is what they're calling "SGENE YARN TECHNOLOGY" promising to provide super stretch and shape retention.

Here is the link to the EXACT pair of jeans I'm wearing.

I've done the work for you: SCROLL thru the pics below for links to some of my FAVE great priced jeans that are super flattering!
