Get With The Crew

j.crew has a pant fit guide and the same is on

That is according to J. Crew and I have to agree.

I am a big fan of their pants as I have mentioned here many times. Actually I would be lost without them; they really are my go-to essential in the wardrobe.

Today I’m in the Minnies with an oversized white shirt and espadrilles. I will be throwing on the Old Navy in a minute and that will be that.

J. Crew is on sale this weekend so if you are into their pants like I am, now is the moment to stock up for summer or even next season.

I am a committed Minnie, Martie and Pixie girl; although the Skinny Stretch Cargo pants have just come home with me this morning. They look cute with the white linen field jacket we talked about the other day.

What is the difference between them all?

The Minnie is cropped with a side zip and the Martie is longer and made from a slightly finer fabric. The Pixie is heavier and comes with leather and suede detailing; longer in the leg and zips up in the back. They are all super flattering and take the pounds off.

Win/ win especially when they are on sale. xv

I love your blog Vicki! I’ve just turned 50 and am shifting gears and wanting to ensure I stay age appropriate but current and you are so helpful! And I have just purchased a couple of pairs of J. Crew pants on sale as well. My faves this Spring/Summer are their Campbell Trousers and Capris. We just returned from France and these were great as they are go anywhere and so very comfortable. I find all of their pants flattering and fit very nicely. Thanks for providing such an inspiring blog, it’s like a wee gift in my email! jj

Good morning Vicki! I love all these styles for any season.

Now back to my gardening, wearing my short overalls! They made a big hit when I wore them last week in Carmel on the beach!

Well, I splurged on the Old Navy Field Jacket that you wrote about the other day! Bought it in the Khaki green and love it…it was the perfect thing first thing this morning which was a cool one here in Ontario and I paired it with a slubby black and white cap-sleeved T, skinny black jeans, a scarf which I left long rather than wrapping it and a pair of really cool Steve Madden sneakers that are a reptilish print in taupe, black and grey with studs on the front…..felt like I might be your twin on the other side of the pond Vicki! Thank you for that heads-up on the jacket…it is really perfect and on sale!


Vicki I am in need of a couple of new pants and this is the perfect time for J Crew!
Thanks so much!

I’m a fan of the Minnie pant as well. Decided to try the Minnie and the fit is fabulous! Sadly, the Martie was excluded from this weekend’s sale. I went ahead and purchased them at full price – $89.50, which is still a bargain for such a well made pant that fits so well.
