My absolute, hands down, favorite trend this season has to be MINT! I can't get enough of the color! However, I can't seem to find anything in just the right shade. Everything I come across is too dark or too blue. Admittedly, my small town has minimal options for shopping, so it's always slim pickins unless you want to wear the same exact thing everyone else in town is wearing. I've shopped online (it's an addiction) but never pulled the trigger since I'm afraid the color will not be what I expect or the fit won't work, which is my primary issue with online shopping. So on a recent trip to the "city," I scoured boutiques and department stores looking for the perfect pair of mint jeans. Thanks to a super cute little boutique, Swank, I found them. How many trends in one garment is overkill? I've got mint, high-waisted, skinny, and a touch of nautical. I don't care! They're adorable! I went all out when wearing them the first time. I didn't want to mute the pants in any way by pairing them with a bunch of neutrals or covering the buttons on the waist (which you can totally do if you want since the tummy is very slim and low profile under tees). It felt so good to be bright and cheery on the very first day to reach 80 degrees. I feel sumer coming!
