Flavors To Follow: The Color Mint

It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with mint green.  With St. Patty’s Day coming up, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to do a roundup of some of my favorite mint picks.  After all, mint is a shade of green so it’s fair game to wear to avoid those pinches!  Isn’t it such a pretty color for Spring?

1 I wish I had kept my friendship bracelets from my younger years, because they are BACK IN now!  Loving the colors of this one from Emergin Store.

 2 It’s got bows and it’s mint.  Enough said, from Reverie!

 3 Loving these new sweet colorblock totes from Rouge and Whimsy.

 4 I so badly wish I cold afford these J.Crew heels, can I just win a J.Crew gift card giveaway please?  Someone have one and pick me as the winner!  😉

5 This cute little necklace from Little Bird Creations is just the perfect accessory to brighten up an outfit.

6 This Spool 72 has got me wanting to go on a picnic.

7 Shop Tobi has made me swoon again with this little polka dot number!

What mint color items do you own?  What color(s) do you think it pairs nicely with?

    I’ve been pining for some mint green jeans/trousers, but have NOT been able to find them in my size anywhere. Guess I’ll have to be on the lookout for a lighter color and dye those babies.

    And that Spool 72 dress is divine!

    I am JUST starting to get on the mint trend. I do love everything here. Mint accessories go well with almost everything. Love that tote!

    Ooh I looooove the polka dot top! I’ve been crushin’ on mint for a while but haven’t found anything I like in local stores. There’s a lot of aqua going around and once I decide on a particular color, I don’t want anything else…

    I looovvee mint! I have that scarf from Reverie. It’s such a gorgeous colour (and bows). That polka dot top is calling my name. I would wear it with peach, pink tones or anything neutral like nude. I don’t know why 🙂

    Oh my gosh I am totally in love with the mint-ness too lately. I have one nail polish that is a minty hue, but I definitely need a fun blouse or something.

    I’m so excited! Yay! 🙂

    Love mint green too! My fave spring nail color is Essie’s Mint Candy Apple. I also have a mint green top, skirt and am on the search for a pair of colored denim. Loving that scarf. Might have to add that to the mix too. 🙂

    Have a great weekend, Sandy! xoxo

    Love this shade, will definitely be adding something in mint for Spring. Maybe a loose knit sweater. Or two. 😉

    Mint is perfect for spring. Love everything on this list! I don’t have any mint clothes, but I do have a bottle of nail polish and EVERYONE asks to borrow it.
