Mint Craze

Tee: Target (similar)  |  Skirt: Forever 21 ( similar #1similar #2)  |  Belt: Forever 21  |  Wedges: Target (shop)  |  Necklace: World Market  |  Tote: (shop)

I try not to get into too many trends, but one trend I cannot get enough of is MINT!  Even though I recognize that it's just pale green / maybe a light shade of celadon or sage, etc. with a hip trendy name like "mint" designed to trick us into thinking it's fresh, I'm still all over it.  When I first noticed it a few months ago, I tried to control myself by only buying this tee and refraining from nail polish, jeans, and other mint accessories, but for whatever reason I decided that I'm gonna ride this trend!  Mint jeans in my last post...and today?  Mint & navy!  It just goes with so much.

How about you?  Are you into mint?  :)

Also, I wanna highlight two Etsy shops who have mint(ish) necklaces that I looooooooove:

First up is from our dear sponsor Seek First.
Here's a mint version!

Second is my necklace from Sunday's outfit post from Eclectic Ornaments:

If you don't recognize it, it's basically a replica the Stormy Sea necklace from Anthropologie.  I love it every time Kendi wears it, which is a LOT!  Look out for a giveaway coming your way with this one!

While I do write sponsored posts sometimes, these shops did NOT ask me to advertise their items today.  This post was out of pure love for these items and for mint!


  1. I am wearing the exact same colors today, mint tie-neck sleeveless blouse and a navy j. crew pencil skirt.  We're twinnies!

    I'm OBSESSED with mint!  I love how you paired it with the skirt.  Those necklaces are darling!


  3. I SO want mint in my closet, but I still haven't found the right pair of jeans, but I do have a nice minty shirt that I've been wearing. :) I'm also into the neon colors lately...just in tiny doses of course.

  4. Obsessed with mint!! And I NEED that necklace. Must win!! 

    Also, are those shoes comfortable? I have almost sworn off peep toes because they rub my poor piggies raw!

  5. I just bought mint jeans myself... I couldn't resist.  I am a fan of the color and always have been.  And I will be long after the trend has gone away.

  6. I have that Eclectic Ornaments necklace but in her mint color and I just LOVE it!

  7. I've been thinking about how many mint pieces I've been seeing out there, and debating whether or not I should give it a try myself (i'm trying to shop less).  Then it hit me!  I already have a mint shirt in my closet!  I thrifted it last summer.  Yay!  I really love this mint and navy combo.  Kind of nautical and ocean-y.

  8. I'm totally with you on mint... I'm a sucker for it packaged as a "fresh" color. I've got nail polish and a watch at the moment and was only prevented from the Target t-shirt and jeans when my Target was out of my size. It looks sooo fabulous with navy.

  9. This is a great office look. Fresh, clean, and streamlined.

  10. Oooooh, a mint WATCH?!?!  Don't tell me these things, Anne.  Not good for the wallet.

  11. Yes, these shoes are comfy!  For me, at least.  The material isn't rigid, which prevents the toe-cramping thing.  

  12. you're so cute and well-dressed! i love that your skirt is the perfect fit and length and the belt accentuates that as well.

  14. I love this season's pastel trend and my favorite pastel is definitely mint.  I also LOVE, LOVE, LOVE navy as a neutral and the pairing you did here is absolute perfection!

  15. My closet is lacking in mint! I think I'd like to add a t-shirt or belt or something like that though--at first I wasn't sure about it but now I see how versatile it can be! It looks great with navy, you're right!

    Ok, now I need more mint in my life. I have tried to stay away, but bought some mint nail polish the other day. Really wanting a great mint scarf, have yet to find.
