Solidarity

Sweater: Forever 21 (shop)  |  Mint jeans: Target (similar, similar)  |  Heels: Target (similar, similar)  |  Necklace: c/o Eclectic Ornaments (shop)

Not much to say today and not a lot of time to write either!  I will say that I loved this outfit.  However, I don’t think that a lot of the people I wore this around knew what to do with it, the mint jeans and all.  Not because they think mint is out, but because they didn’t know mint was ever a “thing.”  They probably thought I was just weird that day, but if that was the case, oh well.  I loved it.  And I knew I could come back here for some solidarity, to the land of the free, where pants that resemble crayons, unnecessarily enormous statement necklaces, and leopard pumps are embraced.

*Edit: the first link for the mint jeans was broken but is now working.  They’re $19.99 from Gap!

    I just got my mint jeans in the mail yesterday. I'm not a tiny person so I might have a little trouble pulling them off. You, however, look fabulous! I wouldn't have thought of the leopard pumps. LOVE that!! Thanks for inspiring me daily!!

    Love the jeans, love the combo! "Where pants resemble crayons" – maybe my favorite quote of yours!

    I usually don't go for pastel, but the mint and navy looks so cute. Also, your hair is looking particularly great in these pictures, I think. 🙂

    Mint jeans..possible crops are on my wish list… they look great with navy… I have all those same feelings everyday… at least you live on the coast, here in the midwest, pajamas are the outfit of the day here…. 🙁

    This is adorable! Are you concerned that you won't be able to wear the mint jeans once they are considered out?

    Oh, dear. Your $19.99 Gap link sent me over there… the mint ones weren't left in my size, but I just ordered some lilac ones for $21.99 plus 25% off! Woo. Owning 4 different colors of jeans isn't too much, right? Also, LOVE this outfit on you. Perfectly simple and gorgeous.

    I wonder if mint will be one of those things that we look back on in decades to come and wonder how it ever came to be. For now, though, I'm all over it.

    i love the blue with the mint! The day I wore my kelly green jeans to my office, people had NO idea what to do with me. I probably shouldn't have paired it with my polka dot too (too loud statements together) however I LOVED the outfit and thats all that matters!

    "They probably thought I was just weird that day." That is such an accurate description of what I am sure people think of me, too. The good news is that your jeans are fabulous and they look awesome with the leopard shoes and navy top!

    This is probably one of my most favorite of your outfits and I can't wait to replicate it (although with mint shirt and navy pants). I'm pretty sure that some people in my Office wonder if I know what I'm doing, but I guess it's ok since I am the visual director and I'm supposed to be "artsy".

    I'm usually a S or M at Forever 21 and I got this sweater in small. I have a small chest, too, but I still ordered the M because the S was sliding up my wider hips.
