A Commentary On Mommy Pants from Lands End

At long last, Keely from Lollygag Blog is joining us for our SITS Girl in the Spotlight series.  Keely and I have been exchanging e-mails over the last few weeks in an effort to iron out the details with her HTML code.  The good news is, it is here and finally working!

Here’s a bit more about Keely…

A playwright, nanny, and new-ish Mom in the city of Chicago, I blog about my money pit of a home, extraordinarily tolerant husband, and the prettiest baby ever to shove eggplant up one’s nose. Also, despite years of schooling and a decent intelligence quotient, I am completely unable to provide even a perfunctory explanation of how electricity works.

Today, Keely is sharing her thoughts on the dreaded mommy pants from Lands End.  You know the ones.  In some cases, they come up so high on your waist that a bra may in fact be optional? Yup. Those are the ones.  :)

 

For more hilarious commentary on motherhood, being pregnant the second time around, and parenting while the husband is out of town, check out Keely at Lollygag Blog.

And don’t forget that it’s time for our Weekend Sharefest again. Leave a link to your favorite post this week and be sure to visit a blog or two ahead of you in rollcall. It’s a great way to build your network!

  1. Haha…I think Norah had the right idea in destroying the mom jean pages from the catalog! Who on earth is still buying these pants, and how do they decided between the relaxed fit vs the traditional fit? No one should even be considering buying jeans so high they become “bra optiona!” Hilarious!

  2. Where did the weekend go?

  3. HMMmmm I don’t think I have any mom jeans…YET. On the other hand, I got my hair cut last week and I am pretty sure I now have mom hair.

  4. Hilarious…

  5. I love her! So funny!

  6. Mom jeans…too funny!! My teenager would never let me be seen in those for fear of sheer embarassmet!

  7. Great fun, and especially like the punch line to her little sweetie (think of the carbs). I’m just about to get into vlogging myself, so I’m watching others’ avidly.

  8. There’s absolutely nothing worse than mom jeans.

  9. Isn’t it Monday yet? I’m ready for everyone to go back to school/work.

  10. Happy Weekend!

    • Sorry. I couldn’t get the comments to work on your blog.

      Great answers to the questions. Especially about being strong. Life has a way of proving to us that we’re stronger than we think. Well stated.

  11. I bought my boyfriend some flannel lined jeans hoping they’d be not as dorky as they were in the picture…unfortunately, just as dorky…if not more so.

  12. Oh, mom jeans. Totally makes me think of the Tina Fey skit from SNL. Love it!

    Still reeling from my SITS day yesterday and trying to visit everyone who visited. This is an amazing group of ladies on here. THANKS TO ALL!

  13. Awesome video. Happy Weekend everyone!

  14. Great! Love it.

  15. Just got back from being away all weekend and trying to catch up! :)

  16. I can honestly say that I have never owned a pair of mommy pants. I do however remember a pair of green paisley capris…

  17. She’s hysterical!

  18. Hilarious! Thanks for sharing!

  19. Hope everyone is having a better weekend than we are fighting a nasty cold in our house! Is it just me or does one become less tolerant of being ill as you get older (and by older, I’m in my 30’s!!). It just seems so much worse being sick than I remember when I was younger, or maybe it’s just that this cold is pretty a bad one.

    Anyhoo…. My favorite post this week is our Saturday Recipe: Strawberry Freeze, perfect for the upcoming warm summer days!

  20. ROFL too funny!

  21. This is a terrific feature! Will pay my respects to our blogger and three more for Sharefest Saturday. Sending all happy wishes for the weekend!

  22. Love that video! Seriously funny stuff :)

    For my sharefest post, I’d like to share: What do I NOT want to be when I grow up? http://bit.ly/eRk2ZD

  23. The closing line was PERFECT! But the whole video was wonderful and very funny. Why would anyone ever make their jeans higher? Thanks for sharing.

  24. Haha too funny!

    Have a great weekend!

  25. LOL! Awesome video. I do love LL Bean but not for their pants.

  26. They actually HAVE mommy pants? I knew SNL spoofed Mom Jeans but nothing like them existed!

  27. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

  28. Happy Sharefest Saturday! Will go visit our featured blogger and three blogs above mine. Sending all weekend cheers.

  29. Hilarious! Thank you for saving us all from the dreaded Mom Jean!
    Now here’s my favorite tip for a good fitting, yet comfortable jean for real women. The top of your jeans – the snap/zipper, should fall two fingers width BELOW your belly button. If jeans/pants hit your belly button or heavy forbid go above it – you have Mom Jeans. The only exception is if your belly is as flat as a washboard then you can wear the high-waist styles.

    Try it – you will be amazed!

  30. HAHAHA! Norah’s opinion at the end is the prefect conclusion. Love it! And what a great taste she has in onesies.

  31. What a giggle!

  32. Oh gosh, I cannot stand these terrible jeans and I can’t believe there’s enough of a market for LE to be selling them! I usually buy my jeans in the juniors section to avoid waistlines approaching the bustline. Hilarious!

  33. jeans are hard…I don’t want mom jeans but no one needs to see my muffin top or butt crack..

  34. I just recently started following Lollygag Blog! Those mommy pants should be banned!!

  35. LMAO! I love this Vblog! Ha! Hilarious!

  36. What a great video!

    I have missed being here to see all the different featured sites. It’s so great to be back with you all!

  37. Very funny lady! Glad it’s the weekend.

  38. Didn’t SNL do a skit about those jeans?

  39. Haha! Those have got to be the most horrendous pants I’ve ever seen! But, my god, they are so comfortable :)

  40. I have no words for this.

  41. Someone needs to send Land’s End the memo!!

  42. Ha!

    Yes, it’s why I mainly get my jeans in the Kohls juniors section. They are much more flattering there.

  43. Going to check out her blog right now!

  44. Love her personality. That vlog is hilarious!

  45. I love it…three styles, all the same…it all depends on how you want to see yourself. I see myself as “relaxed.”

  46. Have a good weekend, everyone!

  47. Twice nice comment luv! Definitely check out her vlog (even if it’s just to see her multi-tasking skills as a juggler and Vanna White wannabee!).

  48. Hilarious!! LOVE her little assistant (I think he had the right idea eating the ad!). Always like to see vloggers – much more fun than straight text. Have a wonderful day!

  49. Uh . . . yeah . . . hope I never end up wearing the dreaded “mom” jeans. lol. I hadn’t ever considered the extra carbs in paper either . . . lol :)

  50. I love that, “Norah! We don’t eat paper; think of the carbs!” Very funny. And I agree those pants and jeans are… awful.
