After moving into our house, my husband went looking for his jeans.

“They’ve got to be in that closet, there’s a whole hanging shelf full of jeans,” he says.

I made that grimacing face and said, “Those are all mine.” I think at last count I had ten pairs. All of which have been with me for years and broken in perfectly.

But as much as I hug them and tell them goodnight love my jeans, when it’s hot outside, I just can’t…

Which is why having these girlfriend chino’s from Gap has been great (remember I’m not a big fan of shorts, in fact these made it to the alternative list). They’re light, they can be worn rolled or not. In fact, I think I like them better unrolled.

What makes them “girlfriend” material is that they’re relaxed yet tapered through the leg. So they’re flattering but also comfortable – qualities we look for in a good friend AND a good pair of pants.

They have them in a nice range of colors and they’re on sale right now, so I would go snatch them up at the GAP in West Town Mall (or put them on your list for tax-free shopping this weekend). Just think of how far these pants will go in your back-to-school wardrobe!
