Minty Fresh Feeling

Mint Jeans- Gap (exact here, similar, plus size)

I truly avoided mint jeans for as long as I could. For over a year now I've wanted a pair, but I managed to talk myself out of them time and time again- too expensive, too impractical, too trendy. I thought I was safe this season too until a couple of weeks ago when Audrey posted about her mint jeans and included a link to a $20 pair from Gap. I followed the link, fully expecting for Gap to be sold out in my size, and when they weren't... well, I kinda felt obligated to buy them.

Throw in a 25% off promo code and I was convinced. A few days later, these babies were all mine.



It's been so long since I've bought Gap jeans that honestly I had forgotten how much better the quality is compared to my Old Navy Jeans. These jeans fit true to size. They don't sag after wearing them all day. They didn't cut into my stomach or accentuate my non-edible muffin-top. So what I'm trying to say is... they are awesome.

OK Katie - after seeing this I definitely need some mint jeans in my closet :) You look so cute, and love that scarf with them!

I love Gap jeans as well, but I have a super tight budget with two kids so I get mine at the Gap Outlet. They just started this cut called the skimmer, and it is amazing for fuller figures. It's skinny, but it doesn't squeeze or anything. You look cute and trendy! I love your short hair when it's all windswept.

I was avoiding color jeans as long as I could, but then I got one pair of minty jeans-fall in love with them and got cobalt blue, purple and red:)) I remember you mentioned that you having an insomnia, did it start during the pregnancy?:)

I keep seeing these skimmer jeans all around the blogosphere, and I am getting SO tempted to buy a pair! Everyone who I've seen wearing them has looked phenomenal...and your mint pair is awesome. I'm glad to hear they don't dig into your waist - that's my biggest pet peeve with pants, and one of the biggest problems I encounter when buying them.


Also, your scarf? Beautiful.

Those jeans are super cute, and I really love them paired with the simple black ballet flats and sweater. I wish gap pants fit my body type because I really do love the quality and covers, but I never have any luck with them

I love gap jeans! I just can never afford them! Long and lean are my favorite!

I love these! I am always fearful to wear light colored jeans because they accentuate my badonkadonk, but lately I just don't care anymore and I've been wearing the crap out of pastels! These looks great on you and slimming too!

Yo girl did you slim down by chance? Looking very svelte in these jeans. And I'm having a total love affair with mint right now...I actually got sent a pair of Old Navy jeans funnily enough, and while I agree about the quality difference between ON and the Gap, that doesn't stop me from being completely obsessed with them. We need the refreshment after this winter!

I just got some aqua jeans and I think mint is next on my list. I did get a beautiful mint green sweater at dress barn and some green slacks that were a little darker. So do I need mint green jeans? No but that doesn't mean I don't want them. You look gorgeous in yours!

I love them on you! You look gorgeous. I actually was just thinking about how I haven't bought Gap jeans in forever, but that it was time for me to get a pair. Now after reading you rave about them, that just convinced me for sure!
