A few weeks (it may have even been months) ago, one of my friends posted on my Facebook wall about how I just needed to post about the J. Crew Minnie Pant on my blog.
I hadn’t tried them on, so I kind of ignored it.
Fast forward to now.
I have one pair of jeans that fit well (Jolt) and a pair of “mom jeans” that I can’t wear in public.
I went on a hunt to find better pants. I mistakenly dragged California Funk, poor thing, with me. I let him go home when I started getting really frustrated. Shopping for pants is probably one of the most frustrating shopping excursions!!!!
But then I stumbled on the MINNIE PANT.
Leslie was totally right. They might be life altering (okay, a smidge of an exaggeration). Great pants.
They’re tight like a pair of a leggings, but not so tight that they’re trashy. I’m just obsessed!!!
I wore them three times last week. A little excessive?!
They look great with flats and great under boots and great with pumps.
Trust me, I tried them with all three kinds of shoes!
I think they were also made by J. Crew to go perfectly with the Jackie cardigan. I have a few colors and I rotated them with my pants last week. Love.
A few hints on sizing:
They’re tight, but stretch out.
If you’re in between sizes, I definitely recommend going DOWN. (Vanity sizing, gotta love it.)
If you maybe, sometimes, kind of wear a petite size, get the petite.
The Minnie also is available in Tall, not that I need that though 🙁
I bought the black pair, but I’m beyond tempted to go back and get a few more shades. I can envision wearing them for every presentation that I have for, well, a long time!
