Okay so I love love love your blog, your advice, and have a question! This summer I realized I officially hate shorts! With a passion! I hated them prior to the babe and hate them even more now. I do however, love skirts…especially Hard Tail roll-over ones - nothing more flattering on a tummy. My question though is what is a late-20s, mom-on-the-go, appropriate jean skirt? Much like you, I am a self proclaimed jean snob but shelling out $200.00 for AG’s Box Skirt (I’ve been stalking it and it never goes on sale) makes me, well more my husband, cringe. I refuse to do true minis but don’t know how I feel about running around in a denim pencil skirt at the playground. Any suggestions?
Thank you! xoxox
The AG Box Skirt you mentioned (pictured at left) is adorable. But how annoying that it's $200....I can get jeans for that price, and this skirt has roughly half the material! Boooo!
So. You are looking for a jean skirt that is (reasonably) mom-friendly, and less than $200. Got it.
The "less than $200" part is easy - there are a million options. Finding something that's mom-friendly is a bit trickier -- I agree that running around the playground in a denim pencil skirt is...well...humph. Not even sure how to describe. Too fashion-victim? Just plain scary? I mean....you can't even climb the steps to help your kiddo down. So yeah - I think the pencil-skirt-at-playground scenario is out.
Even if we rule out the denim pencil skirt, I think we have several other cool options. Here are my favorites:
