moved by mint

      Banana Republic silk shirt, thrifted
necklaces, Groopdealz

      Has this ever happened to you? I've always been drawn to certain colors, but others don't usually merit a second glance. Then, that color starts catching my eye, and I end up acquiring several items in that hue very quickly. (I have to admit that this happened with polka dots this year!) First I thrifted this shirt, then I ended up buying this necklace. Yes, I know mint took the blogosphere by storm probably a year ago. That's just how I roll - my procrastination extends to style trends, it seems.
     When I got home on Tuesday, I ripped the package open and immediately put the necklace on. I wouldn't wear it with this shirt - they blend together too much - but I just had to try it on right away.
     This is probably the biggest, shiniest necklace I've ever owned. I kind of love it.
      It was a downright steamy day yesterday. Since starting work, I've realized that I own an abundance of tops. But my closet is lacking in bottoms that are appropriate for hot weather.  This weekend I plan to begin the hunt for a pair of work-appropriate (i.e., knee-length) shorts. I've hunted for them in the past, but all the ones I've tried on seem to emphasize my hips or the legs fit strangely - either too tight or too loose. 

     What's a color that you're crazy about lately? :)


  1. Um, not mint. Not ever mint. I do have to admit that that necklace is pretty awesome but I'm still totes anti-mint. Weird, I know.

    For me, probably gray. Also weird but I can't stop with the gray.

  2. World-conquering thighs, man. Makes clothing shopping for bottoms more difficult. Gracey knows what I'm talking about.

  3. To each her own, Gracey! ;) Gray is one of those colors that I always admire on others (particularly Dotty) but I've never quite gotten into. I hope to discover its wonders sometime soon! It can be such a great soft neutral.

  4. I hear ya! What makes the whole enterprise even harder is that sizes and fits vary so greatly ...


Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love comments, so please leave one if you like. :)
