I Never Thought I'd Be Gushing About Mom Shorts, but Here We Are
The first thing I reach for every single morning are my sweatpants. They take all of two seconds to pull on, have pockets to store my cell phone and the baby monitor, and are as soft as it gets. But when I wear them outside of the house, I feel underdressed. It's one thing to wear them to the grocery store, but if I'm spending the day out at the park, I don't want to wear sweats.
So I started a search for "mom shorts" that felt like sweatpants. Denim was almost certainly out of the question (when was the last time you wore a pair of denim shorts that were comfortable?). Pockets were a must, and a soft terry-like fabric was where my mind was headed. It wasn't an easy hunt — most terry shorts look like pajamas or are super short with tiny useless pockets — but I found them.
