mint to be

Remember the mint jeans I was planning on purchasing with my tax refund? Well, I purchased them from Madewell, and then I purchased another pair from ModCloth... I might have a mint denim sickness! I fell in love with the Madewell pair, and then fell more in love with the cheaper, better fitting, shorter inseam ModCloth pair. I meant to take a picture of both pairs side-by-side, but was so infatuated with the ModCloth pair, that I sent the Madewell ones back with out a proper farewell.
I'm a happy girl with her new mint beauties!

Here are the two pairs I purchased. The Madewell pair was super soft, and had a great color, but that model must be about 6 feet tall, as I would have had to worn the pants around my armpits (petite girl problems)! The ModCloth pair was $30 cheaper, and was more of a true denim material, not to mention the actual true length of what a normal person would need.

I also rounded up these other options for you mint jean interested ladies - the styles I picked out range from designer prices (Paige Denim) to totally affordable options (under $60 for the ASOS and Urban Outfitters pairs!)

I have only worn my new loves once, but I am already dreaming of how much these babies are going to get action this Spring and Summer!

  8. love love your new jeans!  I have been eyeing a pair of mint jeans myself, and after seeing you in yours I think I'm just going to have to take the plunge!

  9. Those are nice pants. Love the color.

  10. I've been looking for mint jeans (because, really, everything in my life is destined to be mint colored...) and I struggle with the tightness and length.  I love that the modcloth ones seem to be fit for normal people.  Or at least those of us who are under 6 feet tall!

  11. Mint jeans, they are a thing to behold! Looks great!

  12. Love them! I am on the colored denim bandwagon w/ some purple jeans. I don't think I can pull off mint. They are adorable on you though! 

    Take care,

  13. Those are adorable! I love them. I love that color jeans are in style right now- I also love your jacket.  Such a cute look.


  14. Gorgeous mint jeans! I am so obsessed with mint now that I just painted my bathroom that color (luckily my hubby loved it too!).  I have so many items on my spring wish list, sigh.
