I love that this mom is not afraid to show off her beautiful legs while playing it cool as baby naps.

You can definitely do twin outfits with your kids with your frayed shorts. I love how this momma is playful in her picture!

I could only find one pair of mom shorts on Levi’s website. They’re light blue with white bottoms. They’re not my favorite as the two toned color can make your legs look cut off.

Hollister really isn’t my type of store. When I was in high school I never had enough money to shop there, and as a mom, I feel I’ve outgrown it.

Regardless, they actually do have a “mom shorts” section, and there are over 20 different types! Checkout the Hollister mom shorts here.
