Last week I dropped my son off at the bus stop and when I hopped back in the car to drop off baby girl to the sitter, I had a very nice text from one of the mom’s at the bus stop (who is a buddy of mine). She was asking about the pants I had on and where I had gotten them. I was happy to text back “They are Jcrew Minnies”, and even happier to share that I had them since my first son was about 2 years old.
And although I am ecstatic to be able to say that they still fit after a second baby, I tend to brag more about the quality and how it has managed to still look good. I mean, I’m not exagerating when I say they are in very good condition. Considering they are black and have experienced no fading whatsoever…look just as black since the first day I purchased them. The stretch is still as perfect as Day One. In fact, my buddy at the bus stop said she liked the fit on me, and it really is the genius of Jcrew because there is just the right amount of stretch in them where it looks comfy and not too tight.
Of course, since then, I have added more colors of the Minnies to my collection, but all of them tend to be show stoppers. Here are my top three picks:
- You definitely need the Classic black–this can be dressed down or up and is the perfect first purchase into the Minnie family.
- Some of you here remember these–I wear them for all kinds of occasions. I really believe you need at least one Minnie that will serve as your pop of color. I have dressed these up with a peach silk button-up top and leopard heels, and easily dressed down with a summer tank and sandals.
- And finally, Chloe from the Chloe Conspiracy wearing a favorite of mine–the wool Minnie. I love how she pears it with the pop of mint. Don’t let the wool fool you, you can wear these just about throughout the year, with the exception of the summer, of course.
Well ladies, do you own a pair or are ready to make that purchase?
Until next time..
