We are all very familiar with the "Mom Jean". We also have our opinions about it. Known as the man repeller, I personally think that there are a few lucky bodies (and booties) out there that can pull off a "mom jean" and look fabulous. I unfortunately am not one of those lucky few, so in come the "mom shorts". Literally, these are my mother's shorts. I got them hemmed a bit shorter and threw on a belt, and voila! I'm lucky to have a mom that doesn't throw anything away because I always find something I want whenever I visit. I threw on a comfy soft shirt and a bold cardigan (do you see a rust pattern yet?) to complete the easy casual look.
