At some point on our way from Granada to Seville, a red sign bade us to “STOP” and – obedient as we are – we did. We stepped out of the car and set foot in one of the thousands of neat rasters of olive trees that adorn the side of the roads in this olive-cultivating part of Spain. It looked like a perfect set for a typical Mediterranean shoot. The simple beauty of the rustling olive trees (just try to imagine the sound) triggered my imagination and conjured up idyllic scenes far away in time and space. I swear that for a short moment I even was looking over the shoulders of Vincent van Gogh while he was vigorously painting an olive orchard near St.-Rémy in the Provence. (Of course his olive trees, reflecting his tormented soul, were far more gnarled than the young and happy ones that I saw.)
That morning, I had slipped into a pair of light-coloured, high-waisted jeans and an easy floral top: I somehow felt drawn to the combination of denim and florals. I added my favorite honey-coloured suede Sam Edelman ankle boots, a floppy straw hat in the same colour and one of my beloved saddle bags. A very casual outfit indeed, with a slight vintage touch, but flavored with this milky pink shade of nail polish I wore during most of my holiday in Spain as it just screamed “summer!” to me.
As to the jeans I’m wearing, it used to be my mother’s before I stole it from her wardrobe. Authentic certified vintage, isn’t it? Up to now I called it my “mom jean”, in the literal sense of the word. But I’m not sure I can stick to that name. On Wikipedia I read that mom jeans are “considered to be both unfashionable, and unflattering to the wearer’s figure, (…) making the buttocks appear disproportionately longer, larger, and flatter than they otherwise might.” Well, I think I prefer the Vogue interpretation of the name, referring to the mom jean as the new hottest style of denim! What about you. Shall we organize a quick opinion poll? Please let me know whether you support the Wikipedia or the Vogue meaning of “mom jean”. Thank you so much on my and my mom’s behalf.
