~how's your derrière looking these days?~

Hello friends!!


How is everybody doing??

I am fantastic!

We have had more than 60 days of
s  u  n  s  h  i  n  e!!!!!!


this time of year is seriously
amazing in the Pac NW....
warm, sunny & just perfect.....

it's really too bad it has to end! :(
but it will ~ it'll give way to rain
rain rain rain rain rain rain
rain rain rain rain rain rain
rain rain rain rain rain

in just about another month or so....



ok ~ where am I going with this??
you saw the post title &
you're thinkin' whaaaaaaat
is she talkin' about today??

well I came across this on pinterest
the other day......
and my daughter, Kenzie & I were
just shocked at what we found.....

.......drumroll please.......

do you suffer from mom butt?

jeans on the left Old Navy
same bottom, on the right, in LA Idol
{never even heard of that brand to be honest
with you....but you know me....I spend all my time
adoring linen & pillows & such...:)}



c.r.a.z.y!
what a difference!

holy cow....I'm afraid I've been
guilty!

now this is NOT my butt!
she's only like 50 years younger than me...
hehehe

meet Rachel....
she is just adorable....and has quite
the thriving blog of over 40,000 followers!
wow!


 she recently made quite the case
against Gap & Old Navy being
manufacturers of the dreaded
"Mom Jean"

check this out.....


yikes!
now I'm no fashion ninja...
but I think I would've felt somewhat safe
wearing Gap jeans????

not so!

"oh no you don't, 'miss 40 somethin'.....
don't be puttin' that behind of yours
in those babys!"

need more proof?



crazy huh??

Run over to her blog & check it out for
more compelling evidence
against
the mom jean.....

and what timing to uncover this information!

my girls (3 of them + a friend)
forced  me to buy new jeans
on Saturday....

have you heard of Miss Me's??
only a hundred smackers....yikes!

but I tried them on "just to see"
if all my crazy working out
& squats & lunges & deadlifts
& ballet squats etc...
made any difference on this here derriere...

and my girls freaked!
they were like ~
"mom! you rock those jeans!!"
to use their words exactly....
now mind you ~ they are used to seeing
me slough about in my old levis....
(actually cut off levis to be more precise...;) )

so I bought them.
yup.

you wanna picture?

k next time...hehehe
 I promise.....

got no photographer here right now so
tomorrow ok? hehe

AND I also got some super cute
boots!


very similar to this picture!
now don't be thinkin this lovely
gorgeous blonde is me ok?
I think she's a celebrity
of some sort!

but I really like this whole outfit
and "need" some jeans like hers now...
oh and the sweater...
um, and the necklace....
well, ok her figure too, would be nice...


so run to your closet
grab your gap or old navy jeans
and
p.u.t.   t.h.e.m.  o.n.
and check yourself out...

are you wearing mom jeans?

if yes, burn them.
proceed to Macy's/Nordstrom/Buckle
and grab yourself a new pair...

if no, congratulations
you are one lucky duck with boo-tay of yours! :)

{or you're just hugely self confident &
you should applaud yourself, regardless!! :)}


Have a wonderful day!!


xoxo,



Shellagh

I am in my 40's trying to look like I am in my 30's :-)

Gee Singh Newbanks said...

Hahahah.. I have always said they did. Gap and Old Navy that is. Never liked their jeans. This 40 something Mom is not ready for 'Mom Butt' I am all about express and other brands that compliment. I am petite... 5'2" and tiny.. so finding jeans that fit right can be a challenge for me.
Thanks for sharing. I got a good giggle again ( saw article when it first came out)
Cheers, Gee

Chris said...

.....and your point is? hahaha. Here's my theory - if they stress anywhere, take them off! Of course my teenage granddaughters would argue this with me in a heart beat!

Kate said...

Oh Shellagh
You got me thinking girl. I am heading on over right now. What a great post it brought a huge bright spot into my day!
So glad that you still have some beautiful weather left!
hugs to you

Honestly, I don't look at myself much from the back so I don't care. If they feel good and look good overall, I'm a happy camper. Comfort is the most important to me....

And Im gonna totally run over and see! Its all in the cut, I guess! :) Thanks for this!

Tricia said...

I read her post awhile back, wow, what a difference in brands! I really need some new pants, but I want to lose a few pounds first. I can definitely say that when I do go shopping there will be no mom jeans for me though :)

Sandi said...

WOW~ Didn't know a pair of jeans could make that much difference! I have a hard time fitting them to this body as I need petite as well. CRAZY!! I like to think I am not suffering from "mom butt"...LOL!!
Blessings~

It's me said...

What a great post !!...you make me laugh today......because i do not believe it are the same person's....hahahahaahha!!...i will take a look at her blog now...happy weekend...love Ria...xxx...

PURA VIDA said...

funny...of all the photos..what caught my eye was that little pot of bulbs on that rustic table? I am so not into cloths at this stage of my life...and it shows! I look like a hobo most days. Have a great weekend!

Heaven's Walk said...

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR....!!!! Does this mean I can stop working out....???? lolol! Cuz I will in a heartbeat.

My hiney is the FIRST thing I look at when I'm buying jeans. (Weird, but true.) I dream about having a cute bootie and have been on a lifelong journey to find the perfect pair of jeans that will make it look that way. You made my day, sista!!!! ♥♥♥

Ok....I'm digging through the couch cushions til I find $100. I NEEEEEED some jeans like this to make this 50 y/o bum look like it's morphed back 30 years.

Hugs!

Heaven's Walk said...

Oh....is your first installment of "Bootilicious Fridays".....??

Shanon at Vintage Sparkle Chic said...

Ha ha! As I was reading this post I was thinking you should try Miss Me's. I have only worn them (or Rock Revivals) for several years now because of that very reason. They are so much more comfortable then gap/old navy, too. I hope you show us yours! :)

~Shanon

P.S. I've been coveting your linens and pillows and finally ordered some yesterday (maybe the day before...it's all a blur!) and can't wait to get them! So fun!

Anonymous said...

i checked out the grasping for objectivity blog to see what the fuss was about...i just find it incredible that there are that many people worrying about what their butt looks like. get a life.

Anonymous said...

There isn't a woman alive that doesn't want to look nice. We all just might not admit it.

I think that's a great thing to think about before you go jeans shopping. I can't seem to find a good pair for me. I'll definitly be checking my behind in the mirror before I buy :).

The money that these peoρle save from nоt traveling can be utilized tο increаse the budgеt foг thе gamblіng.
Thіs dοеѕ make sensе aѕ a player's winnings could easily have come by way of the bonus money and cashing out as soon as winning a big sum of money would not be very beneficial to the on line casino's bottom line.

I have just stumbled upon a new driving game for android phones, it's called Real Race: Asphalt Road Racing and it's really like a racing sim with arcade mechanics. Racing around desert dunes and steppes, asphalt and lanes, it is like Need for Speed Carbon or Most Wanted, and actually the newest edition, NFS: Rivals.
On a scale of 1 to 10 I'd give it a strong 8. Ammount of features is nearly staggering, and so is its replayability. Beating the leaderboards trully entangles you and you're instantaneously drawn in. It trully reminds me of Fast and Furious. Above all it is a awesome, challenging free game.
There are no pursuits with law enforcement, but I suppose it's good though as multiplayer gameplay gives great occasion to show your cool underground drag racing skills.
On-screen immense velocity gives a feel of literally being there and hurrying with top drivers as seen in TV. Stress rushes are numerous.
It boasts very advanced Artificial Inteligence and I'm playing it already 8 times in a row or so and it is still fun and engaging. It is kinda cool to drive and overcome other players on 6 or so tracks. Game feels like grand prix with GT cars like ferrari or dodge viper.
