Haters Gonna Hate


Adventure Mom in action.
It all started at Wadi Rum, when Gregg Lines told me "Kristi, if I were to name your outfit today, it would be called Adventure Mom."

Easy for the guys to criticize when they didn't have to change their wardrobe AT ALL for this trip. There's only so much a gal can do with mom pants, long-sleeved shirts, and crew neck tees! 

I can't tell you how many times somebody has asked me--with a slight squint of the left eye--"OMG, where did you get that??? Goodwill??" 


And I didn't even buy it because I was desperate for halal clothes. I BOUGHT IT 'CAUSE I LIKED IT.

So while I only slightly resent the fact that my ensembles were relentlessly made fun of for the past few months (and I am the first to admit that I erred on grandma side of grandma chic!) I can't say that I didn't have fun with it all. I'll proudly rock the mom look any day because y'know what? I work that ish.

And for the record, I'm definitely celebrating my leaving the Middle East by wearing a low-cut shirt (read: below the collar bone) in Ben Gurion International Airport. AMMMEEEERICA!!!!!!!!!!


For your viewing pleasure, here is a gallery of my classmates' favorite ensembles:

The look that started it all: Adventure Mom.

Retirement Mom.

European Coffee Shop Mom.

Safari Mom.

Tea-and-Crumpits Mom.

60's Mom.

Roman Holiday/Sightseeing Mom.


And the icing on the cake . . .

I'm here at the airport in Tel Aviv writing this with Tom Nance sitting next to me. The following conversation actually happened.

"Kristi, you blogging over there?"

"Mmmm hmmm."

"You're such a Blogger Mom."


  1. right on with all the "moms." i wanna babysit for you when you're a mom mom. "feel the baby kick!"

  2. haha sweet i took all of those pictures but one.

  3. Unfortunately when I get accused of wearing mom clothes they are more like those jeans I had back when I was 14 and swore I would "never ever wear flare jeans because flare jeans are just a passing fad" and less like your awesome emsembles.


  5. So I guess those skirts from the DC market didn't cut it huh? What I want to know is what about the blue polka dot pant suit. Is it POSSIBLE that Brock won????

    All this MOM talk...... are you telling me something????? (I can hope can't I?)
