Thanks to Goodwill, moms can wear white too!

April 17th, 2015 by Stephanie

For years, I have resisted white pants even though I loved the look.  White pants look great on other people, but I never really considered myself a white pants person.

Why did I resist the trend for so long?
Allow me to introduce you to my sons….Mud and Muddier.


Life with boys can be messy. My boys play outside in the dirt, and usually have dirty hands.

Sometimes, I miss one of their stray crayons in the laundry.

They love to eat foods like Doritos and Cheetos. (DON’T JUDGE ME!)

Yes, my little guys are messy, but I really would not have them any other way. When they play outside, they are so much calmer.

When they color, they show me a peak into their creative brains.

And when they eat Doritos and Cheetos…..I really can’t make that one sound any better.

Just when I decided that white pants and little boys did not mix, I found a pair of Banana Republic white pants at Goodwill for only $5! Yes, with my two boys, there is a good chance my white pants will be ruined by dirt, crayon, or fluorescent orange powder, but even if the pants are ruined I have only lost $5.

With Goodwill, this mom can bravely wear white pants, and still embrace my fun, messy little boys.


If you decide to take the white pants plunge, you can check out my Pinterest board here with some outfit ideas.



Stephanie fell in love with Goodwill as a quirky teenager searching for vintage clothes. Now as a mom and wife, her love of Goodwill still continues as she searches for deals for her wardrobe, home, and family.

I love my white pants, thankfully, I don’t have little ones but I am still very careful!
