Mint Condition

Mint is not a new color adorning the fashion or home design world. But, goodness gracious, do I love it! What at first appears to be only appropriate for spring, is,  upon closer look one of the most versatile colors. Mix into your wardrobe or home any time of the year and you won't regret it.


My favorite part about mint is that it's surprisingly seasonal when accompanied with the right colors.  Check out some of my favorite hints.... of mint.....

Sometimes it's okay to start from the bottom up. In fact, since my closet is taken over by colored and polka dot bottoms, this is often where I begin when choosing outfits. I love gap pants - the fit, the price (especially when experimenting with color), everything.

It doesn't get much more feminine than mint and pleats. Pair this with a blazer and pumps or a cozy sweater and boots.
