Mint Obsession

This year, I vowed to get a little out of my comfort zone when it comes to my wardrobe.  Admittedly, I am not much of a bold dresser.  I like to stick to neutral colors in shapes that work well on my body.  One color that I have been admiring lately (but have yet to add to my closet) is mint.  It's been a popular hue this spring and summer, along with an array of soft pastels.  Here are a few outfits I love that incorporate mint:






I'd love to add any of these great mint items to my closet...



Have you guys heard of Charm & Chain?  It's my absolute favorite online jewelry source, and also where you can get these Kendra Scott earrings.  They sell jewelry from various designers at all price points.  Those Anthropologie loafers are so fun, too!  I really need to invest in a few of these mint pieces.  Do you have a mint obsession, too?

  8. Love the inspirational images! The third outfit is very casual and stylish, it's my favorite look among the rest!

    I also like the dress you picked. With its classic silhouette and elegant lines, it's a winner in my book!

    Have a good day, Sam!

    P/S: Thanks for your lovely comments on my room earlier!

  9. Mmmmm .... mint. I can appreciate mint, but it's not a color that is flattering to me personally, so I think that's why I've been slow to hop aboard the mint bandwagon!! But I do love some great pastels ... particularly lavender! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to leave such kind comments!

  11. I am just like you said, I usually only wear neutrals. Thanks to your blog however, I have been adding colors. I recently bought 2 mint tops. So out of my element, but i did. I also bought some kelly green. Never would have done it had it not been for reading your blog - seriously!

  21. I love the colour mint, but not so much since I've been seeing it all over the place. While I love that there are now more mint items available for purchase, I'm also slightly crushed that it's no longer original to wear it. Sigh, I guess that happens with fashion... I adore your picks especially that mini skirt.

  28. Mint is the color best suited for summer. It can provide an airy and refreshing look. I liked the mint colored skirt in the second picture. It would look good on slim people like me. I liked all the mint collections you have displayed. The top, skirt, dress all have a charm on its own. However, my favorite would be the mint bag. I liked the way the scallops are done in the bag. Is it a leather one? If it is leather it’s a unique piece as leather bags normally comes with plain edges without scallops. The shoes reminds me of a wall paper I spotted in one of the blog.
