6 Hilarious Signs You're Dressing Too Much Like Your Kids

Crazy outfit
Do you want to dress like her?
We've all heard about the mom wardrobe. She carries a giant bag. She wears high-waisted jeans! But ladies, there's another fashion faux pas in the same vein that no one seems to want to talk about.

I'm referring, of course, to the mom who dresses a little too much like her kids. And by kids I mean people who are still in short pants and have an affinity for sucking down massive amounts of ketchup. Ladies, I hate to break it to you, but it's just not working for you.

I know this may sound strange coming from the Mom who once spent two days dressing like her daughter to see if it was possible to do without looking like a complete spaz. But that's just it: most of time you can't pull this look off!

And yet moms do. All. the. time.

Not sure if I'm talking about you? Behold the signs that you are one of the moms who dresses too much like her kids. And please, get help!

Which one of these describes you? How about your friends?

Wait, wait, wait. Are you saying that sandals are unacceptable shoes for adults? ALL slip-on shoes, really?

Last time I checked 90% at least of all my dress shoes were slip on shoes.  Also, I totally wear cartoon character shirts, as well as PJ pants, all the time.

Heels are slip on shoes... So I can't wear my heels?

Well, someone sounds a bit like a Judgey McJudgerson, don't they?

I'll agree that stained clothing or pajamas outside the house for more than anything but a quick run to the supermarket for milk or some such thing is just plain sloppy, and I hate it when I see people doing it, but sheesh. I have LOADS of shirts with cartoon characters on them, as well as comic book characters, snarky phrases, etc. Footie pajamas are also the business in cold weather, I don't care what anyone says!

I don't care what you say I'm still wearing slip on shoes (not crocks though, yuck). I love my ballet flats and my flip flops! :)

I never touch crocs....They are only good for gardeners...as they were designed for....I do have my Disney fleece hoodies....and yep they create warmth.....no sweats outside of the house and def not PJ bottoms....I don't even allow my kids to go out in them.....No stained clothes.....Just because you're a mom doesn't mean that you should let yourself go JMO
