I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far.  As I mentioned on my post yesterday, I seem to be on a mint kick these days.  I wore the mint premium skinny jeans from Target today; it is so adorable and surprisingly easy to wear.  I was a bit hesitant to purchase these jeans at first…I was afraid I would feel self-conscious wearing them.  My husband calls them the “Carmela” pants…he refers to any jeans/pants that are of any color other than the neutrals as “Carmela” pants.  Carmela, being the Edie Falco character on The Sopranos; Carmela had some pretty colorful pants on the show to go with her colorful life.

As I was putting on these jeans this morning, I could just hear him saying “nice pants, Carmela”…but I perished the thought.  The color just makes me smile so much.  Regarding the fit, it’s very comfortable – it’s got some good stretch to it.  After having two kids and gaining a lot of weight during each pregnancy, I can tell you that my muffin top was thanking me today (LOL).

As you can see in the IRL photo, I paired it with my favorite J.Crew stripe tee which does a good job hiding my gut area.  I love the navy/mint color combo; it’s very soothing.

How do you like the mint trend? Do you think it’s here to stay or on its way out?
