Just The Basics
During the week and work day I live in basics: a good pair of denim, an easy to wear t-shirt and I’m happy. When we aren’t out and I’m at home behind my computer or running errands, this is by far my favorite thing to wear… just something easy!
A few weeks ago I ordered a pair of denim from Mott & Bow. I’d been on the hunt for pair of light wash, less “skinny” more “relaxed” jean (but not frumpy!) and was having the hardest time finding the perfect fit. Once I placed my order I held my breath, because in all honesty… denim shopping is my LEAST favorite thing.
I have a booty, so I’m always hesitant when it comes to denim and always have the hardest time finding the right “fit”. It’s either a perfect fit for my tush, but 3 sizes too big for my waist, or I’m not getting it over my knee caps. There’s no middle ground! But I did my research, and all of the reviews on the Mom Jeans seemed too good to be true. So I took the leap of faith!
And guys, I now LIVE in these jeans. They are quite possibly the most comfortable pair of denim I’ve ever worn. True to size, true cotton denim, and magical! At first they are snug, but like true denim they give a little bit and create the perfect “relaxed” fit, which is just what I was looking for.
I wanted a good “hello Summer, aren’t you casual” pair of denim and these are it! Also, I think they are so chic, like old Ralph Lauren, and I love them.
Seriously, I wore them on my 7 hour flight to Seattle, Washington last week and they were perfection… so I’m telling you, they are amazing!
Another amazing find from Mott & Bow is this amazing box cropped white tee! I probably wear this top twice a week (at least!). The relaxed boxy fit is chic and comfortable, but my favorite thing about it is that it isn’t the least bit see-through! Praise the Lord for a white t-shirt that you can’t see your bra in. It’s truly a miracle!
I haven’t been able to stop talking about Mott & Bow ever since this top and this pair of denim came in. I even convinced Ryan to order a few pairs from the Men’s line. His arrive later this week and I know he’s going to feel the same… I’m actually excited for him, ha!
But now that I have the one pair I’m excited to slowly start trying the rest of their denim line.
