fashion : mint to be

| image source : bomobob |

Hi y'all! It should come as no surprise to anyone reading this that I love mint. LOVE IT. I'm always drawn to the color, whether it's a blouse, purse, necklace, scarf, photo, paint color, or whatever. It's one of those colors that makes me happy. Every time. 

Currently, this is my favorite outfit, partially inspired by this photograph:

Gorgeous, huh? 

And before you freak out and think, "I can't afford any of this," let me stop you right there. I don't have this exact outfit (because you can't get pictures of everything on polyvore) but I do have an outfit VERY similar to this. I got my mint skinny jeans from Old Navy on CLEARANCE for about $15. I got ruffle wedges from DSW for less than $10. I got an ivory lace tank from Maurices. I got Essie - Fiji, from Wal-Mart, around $7. I got a beaded, layer, statement necklace in mint and peach from FOREVER 21 for around $5. I don't really carry a purse right now, unless you count the diaper bag that is forever attached to me. I can't wear bangles (they never fit over my gigantor hands) and I don't have that lipstick. But gosh, I want some new lipstick soon. 

So see? I don't spend a lot of money on my fashion, but I love putting together fun, flirty outfits. And this outfit is great! I love that it's dressy enough I feel comfortable wearing it to Sunday morning church services. But it's casual enough that I can wear it all day and not feel constricted. It's my favorite! Plus, I'm just oodles and oodles in love with mint. Mint = Happiness! ♥

Is there a color that makes just makes you happy?
