Hot Jeans for Hip Mamas

Chip & Pepper Stellas in Ash Rapids

Chip & Pepper Stellas in Ash Rapids

There’s one wardrobe item that’s an absolute staple for men and women and children: jeans.  You can dress ’em up with killer shoes and accessories or you can kick back and relax in a tee shirt and flip-flops. I have several types of jeans (from women’s to maternity in a few brands and sizes).

I have been on a desperate search for a pair of jeans that is flattering from the minute I pull them on to the end of the day when I’ve put ’em through the wringer with sitting, walking, and deep-knee-bending to pick up my son. To find a pair that was a good fit for my body shape, I visited the jeans-sizing guide at Zafu which floated Chip & Pepper® styles to the top of my list.  I recently found a pair that fit beautifully, and OH, do they do the trick!

chippepperChip & Pepper® is my new favorite brand of jeans.   As I type, I am currently sporting the Stella Bootcut Jeans in Ash Rapids by Chip & Pepper ($203) which were just introduced for spring.  The Stellas come in 8 other washes from optic white to crow black, and varying shades of indigo.

The back pocket placement and contour stitching adds considerable lift to the butt.  The denim is a lighter weight (perfect for spring and summer nights) and it’s been washed until it’s as soft as velvet without being constricting.  No need to wait several washing to break these jeans in, Chip & Pepper® already taken care of that!  The mid-rise waist provides a modern look in front, but the asymmetrical cut (read: more generous) in the back gives you the freedom to move without worrying about flashing anyone.  This feature alone makes these jeans worthwhile!

I truly love them because even after all-day wear which includes chasing a toddler, picking up a toddler, climbing stairs multiple times (wash, rinse, repeat 4 times), they still fit!  Ten hours later, the waistline still clings to my waist and the butt area wasn’t stretched or sagging.  The jeans still hugged my curves and looked as if they still had another week to go before they needed a rest.  Chip & Pepper® could rename the Stellas the Marathon jeans, so women would truly understand their capability and endurance to keep up with a very busy routine!  Free shipping is available for all U.S. orders.

Sizing consideration: These jeans are cut long.  If you’re blessed with long legs, then no worries.  If you have shorter legs, then feel free to sport the cuffed hemline which is very in for spring, and lower them for year-round use with boots.

What mom wouldn’t want a pair of jeans that makes her feel comfortable, attractive, and well-covered?  Gift certificates are available on Chip & Pepper’s® site, and you can also win a pair for you or your favorite mom.

  1. Hi Dolly! Cute jeans! I’d love a pair! Aaron asked me what I wanted to do for Mom’s Day, and boy did I tell him: 1. Run a women’s only 10K in Portland at 9a.m.!! 2. Brunch at the park with the fam. 3. I’ll hang in the backyard with the kids while he recaulks my bathtub. 4. While kids nap, I get to browse Target and the bookstore by myself. 5. Dinner out somewhere! 6. No dishes to clean, please!
