Minty Fresh

This year mint is back in a big way.  It was one of last year's "it" colors and it continues to be one of my favorites to wear.  Yesterday I decided to rock a little mint:


Knit Sleeve Chiffon Top-Forever 21
Denim Jacket-J Crew Factory
1969 Always Skinny Neon Skinny Jeans-Gap
Seychelles "Hot & Bothered" Sandal-Nordstrom
Mixed Spectra Necklace-Anthropologie
Rosalinda Tonal Drop Earrings-Anthropologie
Golden Totem Bracelet Set-Anthropologie
Geometric Bouquet Ring-J Crew

Here's a few other cute mint hued items I have my eye on right now (because you can never have too much of a good thing, right?!)

Anthropologie



Red Dress Boutique



Bloom



Piperlime



Nordstrom



Anthropologie


I'm thinking the Bottlegreen Dress (first one pictured)  could be a cute dress to wear to my little brother's wedding in May...definitely plan to try that one on!

Lastly, I just wanted to say my heart and prayers go out to the people of Boston and the many runners, supporters, organizers, etc of the Boston Marathon.  I had a good friend running it this year as part of Team Hoyt and was so grateful to know she was ok.  Her husband was at the finish line across the street from where the explosions went off and witnessed it all...I can't imagine the horror.  It's so sad that we can't even run a race anymore without worrying about what might happen.  It's so amazing to see interviews and news stories of the people who ran and say they'll be back next year to do it again.  It won't stop them.  And it shouldn't.  Even though one small act of terror (albeit a horrible, history making act) can have such a large impact on our country in such a terrible way, it's the good of the majority that will overcome and reign supreme in the end.  I know it.  

Have a happy day!

  4. I just saw that maxi on their website yesterday and was on the fence about it. I don't love it on the model, but the reviews are excellent...

  5. Mint is the best. I avoided it last year but now that's made it into year 2 I got a couple of things. So I hope it sticks around for at least another year after this one. Great color on you!

  11. It's funny, I was just thinking the other day that I've always worn mint but just called it pale green. For years and years. It was only when I started reading blogs that I stopped calling things pale green or blue and used mint or cobalt!

    I'm glad your friend in Boston was ok. Two of my running clubmates were also there but luckily finished and left the area 30 minutes before.
