Mint Jeans

I wanted a pair of mint green jeans so badly. I was DESPERATE! The few that I liked were close to $200. That would make way too big of a dent in my pocket. So I resorted to Gap.....Kids. Yes, you heard me GAP KIDS! Haha! I never thought at my prime adult age of 24....that I would be shopping at kids' stores. Well, I did and frankly I saved myself close to $170!!! I bought my mint jeans for $17.95 (with my 30% coupon) in the largest kids' size available. I was incredibly determined to make them fit. Yes I had a muffin top.....and yes they were just a wee...tiny...bit tooo damn tight....and yes they were clearly too short. But I made them work. And saved myself a pretty penny too! The end:).

Here is my look:

  1. So cute! I love the back story to your jeans as well! Definitely brag worthy. :)
    You look great, and the navy blazer combination with red belt, is inspiring.
    The purse or clutch can easily change your outfit from day to night.
