Minty Fresh

4 Mar

I realize we just did a post about emerald green, but mint green is everywhere right now too. It’s a HUGE color for spring. It was big in 2012, but I think it’s going to be even more available this year.

Let us start with the Catherine Street – Louise shoulder bag by Kate Spade.

Next is the Steve Madden Studded Tote (now on sale at Zappo’s for $76.)

And here’s a wallet, Rebecca Minkoff’s Frannie Leather French Wallet.

Coach has lots of bags in mint. My friend has this one, the leather crossbody bag, in bright pink. Be warned that it is really small. If you have a big wallet, it will probably not fit in this bag.

So here’s a larger Coach bag, if you’re interested- the Legacy tassled leather duffel.

Are you getting tired of links yet? I am. Here’s a phone case. It’s the Case-Mate monogram iPhone 5 case, which is too cool for me since I still have an iPhone 4. Gosh, I’m so old school.

Shoes! It’s the Sole Society mary jane ballet flat. I’ve never worn this brand before, and have heard mixed reviews.

Mint and gold together appears to be a thing. This BP chain link statement necklace is quite a deal – only $18.

The Kate Spade New York Bijoux Bijoux Long Station Necklace is just a little bit pricier at $128.

Would you like to pay even more than $128 for a Kate Spade necklace? Here’s your chance! It’s the Kate Spade New York Hot Chip Bib Necklace, and it’s $198.

More stuff to put around your neck! It’s 50 Shades of Mint! I’m tired of writing these descriptions! Accessory Collective infinity scarf.

These Tory Burch logo stud earrings look pretty neutral. This link goes to the Tory Burch website because the earrings don’t seem to be available at Nordstrom anymore. The color of the earrings looks totally different on the Tory Burch website, just FYI.

Calvin Klein’s strapless rosette bodice chiffon dress looks very romantic.

Blazer!

Peplum!

You may note that I stuck mainly to accessories. (You may also note that all these photos are screen shots from the Nordstrom app because that’s just how I roll.) I’m not against color. I just think mint is a hard color for most people to pull off. In accessories, I think a really pale mint is gorgeous, but if you’re going to wear a mint-colored shirt or dress, it needs to be a deeper mint, either more blue or green, depending on your skin tone.

    I am in love with mint green right now. All I have is a cardigan, but I want a pair of mint green flats! How cute would they be with my bright blue colored jeans??
