Cool Mint






I did a post a few days ago about adding pastels to my wardrobe. I am usually more of a medium value gal when it comes to colors, but I like to try something new once in awhile.




After doing that post, and researching what pastels would work in my wardrobe, mint green stood out as a good addition to my existing wardrobe.



I use to wear this color in the late 80’s and it was a favorite back in the day.


(my jacket was almost identical to this one, I should have kept it!)





I went looking for a mint sweater, and I found one at JCrew.



I already have a few things to wear with this new addition to my wardrobe.












While perusing JCrew I found a few things that were pretty cute, and reasonable that were on clearance……








Bracelets are all the rage, and the more the better. I thought this was so pretty for $24.95.






This would go perfect with so many things in my wardrobe, and at $14.50 it is a real steal. They had a necklace in the same style also, but I would not wear both at the same time, one or the other, never both.





At $26.50 these would be darling for the summer. I can see these with a long maxi dress for a barbecue.

 An all white outfit:  white jeans, and white shirt, these earrings and multiple gold chains for a necklace, cute sandals, and you are good to go!!


I just thought I would share a few things I saw that are on sale right now that seem like a pretty good deal to me.

This seems to be a good time of year to take advantage of some of the sales that are going on right now.

I passed on the jewelry, but the sweater is on its way to ME!!!

I will be wearing it like this: 




BTW: did you notice I threw in some images of rooms done in mint? I don’t want to disappoint my readers that come here to see pretty rooms! Do any of you wear mint, or have it in your homes?

"Enjoy the Process!" Of:

Adding a new fun color for the season!

Like Helen, I don't wear mint green. In fact, it has never been one of my favorite colors, so it is off putting this season to see it everywhere!!!! I do enjoy it on others, and love what can be done with such a soft color.

Kathysue, I just purchased some mint linen pants the other day and immediately thought of this post. I didn't think the color would look right on me, but I was wrong! They are just fabulous!!

I used to wear quite a bit of the mint green..but, like you, as trends changed I moved away from it. I still have one mint green dress/jacket combo that I will drag out for summer...and will shorten it now.

I don't really have any mint in my house here. However, when we lived in Florida in the early 80's I had mint and peach...no one else was quite on that bandwagon yet so everyone would ooh...and ahhh...over my design choices...and I had ruffles on my patio with a Diane VonFurstenburg peach and mint green seat covers and table cloths.

Fun to see it coming back for a bit. xo Diana

I remember wearing this color in the 80's too, and think I might have had the same jacket! I can totally see this color on you...the sweater will be beautiful!
