Kelley Wendelborn, y’all. Probably one of the most rockstar mompreneurs I’ve ever known.
Now she’s gone and blown me away again by launching her Mint Standard Clothing line. “Mint for work. Mint for play.” – I mean come on?! How adorable and clever is that line, alone?!?! So catchy. Well if you haven’t heard about Mint Standard yet, glad you’re here. This is only the very beginning of an amazing line with all the potential and quality to turn into something absolutely HUGE. I foresee Shark Tank, stores, branching out to different states, literally. Maybe she doesn’t, but I totally do.
These dresses and shorties are top notch. And the best part about all of this? She worked her behind off to get it right. Full time working mom with 2 small girls, she did this on the side- and STILL managed to use her full ass in all areas of her life. She spent nights on her kitchen floor measuring out her favorite shirts and dresses. She used a light sand paper and rubbed hundreds of fabric samples to pick the one that was least likely to pill. The material she ultimately chose? Yeah about that… She was turned down by several manufacturers because “dresses aren’t made from this material. Only sportswear.” 🙄 (who’s laughing now!) Once getting what she truly set out for, she wore her sample for one full day every week from February to June to make sure it washed well and the quality was up to par.
When talking about her reasoning behind starting this journey, Kelley says: “Work expected me to not look homeless. The girls expected me to carry 34,738 acorns in my pockets. I, personally, wanted to live in pajamas. The struggle was real.” Gosh if that isn’t the truth 🙌🏼 Kelley wants a line that can be worn for everything. Never miss out on a moment because we’re dressed inappropriately. She finished by saying: “As women, we are expected to do so much and be so much, and it’s time we have clothes that can do life with us.” SO GOOD! #goals!
Now let’s show off the clothes….
I have one of each dress. They are both *SO* comfortable and flattering. The shorties are perfect- my flab isn’t lava-lamping around down there. You can rest easy knowing everything will stay put. 👌🏼

Sizing is simple, but I know we all get squirrelly about our crazy figures and what will look best. I chose a medium in both dresses because I have thicker arms. They are so annoying, but that’s for another post… here is the size chart if you need help:
You are seeing this correctly… winner gets to pick out the dress of their choice. Holla!
