Good things come in mint - juleps and Girl Scout cookies, for starters.
(What, you thought from the title this was going to be a post about going eco? We can do one of those too - as well as throwing around the Royal "We" inappropriately - but being Earth friendly goes without saying here. Listen, I live in hippie liberal Austin - we just do things like recycle, turn off lights, and use reusable shopping totes,
Anywhoo, mint is but another part of the Easter colorpalooza springing up in stores (AHAHA, see what I did there?!?) lately. As with the other technicolor trends, this preppish sort feels right at home with this candy color. Though the shade is familiar, it's showing up on a number of new sorts of clothes & cosmetics, which makes it accessible at a number of price points:
I'm still playing around with how to pair mint up color-wise - worn in excess, you risk looking like a be-scrubbed (if chic) surgeon. However, it can be such a subtle color it almost works as a neutral; I also like how internet BFF Shabby Princess has it paired up with coral. Today* I'm pairing it with whites and nude neutrals to let the mint stand out.
(*Yes, I - avowed skinny jean avoider - am giving them a test run. I have not forsaken you, bootcuts of yore, but I'm begrudgingly trying to keep up with the times - just in time for the trend to go away, if my track record on style resistance/acceptance is any indication.)
Anyone else having a minty moment - or in sudden need of some Junior Mints?
