I honestly never knew that I liked minestrone, until I had it at my aunt's house a couple weeks ago; and when I heard how simple it was to make, I stocked up on the ingredients and made a batch that could feed a small army.

I ordered these trouser jeans a few days ago and when they arrived yesterday, I fell in love. The fit is perfectly flattering in all the right places, and they are a gorgeous lightweight semi-stretch denim. I ordered long since I am 5'10 and they more than touch the ground. For $70 how can you resist?!
