Mint to Be

I am not sure what it is, but I can't say no to a cute skirt. There are so many colors and patterns that look good as skirts! And thanks to thredUp, I have quite a few! There are just so many options on there whenever I think I need to add a few items in a certain area of my wardrobe I end up buying 6 or more pieces ($10 off promo code)!

Even though I love this skirt, it doesn't get as much wear as it should. It just not great with boots. But now the temps are definitely warm enough now to pull it out of the closet. Figuring out a top is always a struggle. There are lots of colors that pair well with mint, but none of mine seem to look quite right. I am not sure what made me remember this lightweight sweater, but I love the mix of patterns and textures in the outfit! I can't believe I didn't think of pairing them together sooner!

  12. Bright Pink! White tee bright pink cardi. That'd be super cute and preppy. But any color really would work - it seems that mint can almost pass as a new neutral!

  20. Does your skirt have elastic AND pockets? How crazy to neglect it with awesome details like those! Have you tried simpler combinations like solid white or other pastels?
