AJ Wears :: Mom Jeans

I never thought I’d willingly seek out mom jeans as a fashion choice, but here we are. I’ve been a little obsessed with Anine Bing and her style, and the whole tucked in tee and high waisted jeans aesthetic was really resonating with me, so when I saw these jeans on sale I had to try them.

Of course, they had to be shortened. And they ended up taking in the waist too to make them fit absolutely perfect - and I. Love. Them. By wearing them with a bodysuit, I truly transported myself back to the 90s and lived like an extra on the Friends set for a day.

Except I left “The Rachel” back in 1995. What a mistake that one was.
