lately i've been very conscious of my jeans-and-a-t-shirt rut and i've been trying to branch out...thus the purchase of the printed pants aka stretchy pants aka glorified and publicly acceptable pajamas.
my sister loved them, my mom said, "emma. they are not cute." which kind of gave my self-esteem a real kick in the shins.
are they really not cute? am i out of touch? am i (heaven forbid!) too old for these printed pants? at what age are they going to kick me out of forever21 and make me shop at some adult place like the loft or anne taylor?
i'm a cool mom! i can wear trendy printed pants! ...right?
