Mint Chocolate

I think pale mint and rich brown look exquisite together! The combo definitely inspired my Friday's Fancies this week, and I just had to throw in a little tangerine for good measure! Now I've got two fresh colors to add to my closet!

I think this mint dress paired with some adorable wedges would make a lovely and sophisticated spring break outfit. I chose a pair of beaded earrings that somewhat mimics the print of the dress and a great bag, watch, and ring to finish off the look. To continue with my color theme this week I put together a collage of many minty lovelies for your viewing pleasure! My favorite item is the bow-front blouse! Wouldn't it look nice with some dark skinnies and nude heels?

It was warm enough to go swimming today! We packed up our beach bag with towels and snacks and took Sean to the lovely wading pool on the other side of our apartment complex. The water was still cold but Sean loved it! I'll post pics soon. Oh and the mini juice fast I did on Monday went really well! I lost 2 pounds in one day and felt quite energized. I wish the story ended there, but sadly just eating normally the next two days put it right back on... C'est la vie!

  1. Love your finds here! I love mint too and would like to have something in it- but I don't look so great in light colors. I've been frantically searching for something KELLY green!! I want the perfect cardi for spring!

  2. I love that you titled your post "Mint Chocolate," because when I saw this thumbnail on {av}'s link-up, the first thing I thought was, "Mmm, mint!" What a great spring color. :)

  14. Loving that color for Spring! I haven't even considered wearing it and really need to invest in at least one piece. Maybe a flowy chiffon top!

  15. Looking good! I love mint, but my olive skin looks a little too greenish when I wear it. :( Le sigh.
