It’ll happen to you. You’ll be packing for a trip or just a day at the beach. You’ll grab your cover-up, your water-proof shoes, your giant floppy hat, your healthy snacks and your huge tub of sunscreen and ask, “When did I become this person? I used to grab nothing but a tiny bikini and some beer to hit the beach. Oh my gosh, I’m becoming…my mom!” But there is a reason a lot of moms are known for common habits, style-wise and otherwise: it’s comfortable! As you get older, you care less what people think and you care more about not letting blisters from sexy shoes ruin your night. Your tolerance for uncomfortable clothes diminishes. Your boyfriend/husband/best friend can either have you look good or not complain all day about the wire in your bra. It’s one or the other—but not both. Here are totally mom items every woman loves to wear but won’t admit.
Purses are a pain in the butt. You can’t dance with them because they’re swinging around. You have to make sure you don’t leave them anywhere. You can’t keep an eye on them because they’re at your side. They put weight on your shoulders. They’re nothing but cute and useless. The fanny pack, however, sits right where you can see it and access it at all times. You can jog with it. You can dance at a club with it. You could marry it.
