Mint is so high on my color radar it's not even funny. I can spot it a mile away. Not. Kidding. People are starting to make fun of me it's so bad. Now, a lot of it has to do with the fact that it's one of my wedding colors. Even before that, though, I was pretty obsessed with this color. It's just so pretty and fresh - makes me think of spring and summer, my favorite times of the year!

A few notes for spring/summer...

  • Having a fitted blazer in a fresh spring color (mint, coral, yellow, kelly green, etc.) can instantly update your spring/summer wardrobe! You can style a blazer so many different ways -- casual (with jeans and a tee), feminine (over a sundress), or dressy (with shorts and a blouse), just to name a few! 
  • striped tee is a wardrobe must! Stripes are never out of style. Having a few striped tees in neutral combos (cream/white stripe, gray/white stripe, navy/white stipe) will create tons of layering options with cardigans, blazers, etc. See this look for another way I've styled the striped tee from above.
  • Wedges are the go-to heel for spring/summer! In the comfort comparison, wedges definitely win over heels. I'm quite picky, however, when it comes to shopping for wedges. So many styles are very chunky looking, so I flipped when I finally found the pair above - I love the contrast of the leather straps with the canvas fabric. I'm already dreading the fact that I'll probably have to trash these wedges by the end of summer from wearing them so much. 

I hope you all had a lovely Easter Sunday yesterday! Thanks for stopping by!
