My new obsession this month is with the color mint. Whether it’s dark or light in hue, mint is a fabulous color. It can highlight a great tan, or even compensate for a lack of one. Three purchases this month have me really excited. Check out my new buys:
It all started with a trip to Las Vegas. My boyfriend’s little sister flew from New Jersey to celebrate her 21st birthday. She was having an amazing time, but learned a very important lesson the hard way, when visiting Vegas pack your hottest pair of comfortable shoes. Sure Vegas is the city of excess, and we all want to look hot, but when in Vegas you want to party all night long, and that requires a comfortable pair of shoes. I would never suggest wearing an frumpy pair of flats, but there are plenty of sexy styles that won’t kill your feet. We took a trip to the Fashion Show Mall to find her a pair of shoes that she could dance in the rest of her trip. Of course we had to stop by Aldo, and of course I had to find a pair of shoes I just had to have.
These mint leather sandals were too good to pass up. The heel is low enough for me to be able to wear them whether I’m going out on date night or attending a conference. The silver heel adds a bit of sex appeal, to an otherwise average shoe style. The shoe is light, easy to walk in, and comfortable to wear. The mint hue brought out the tan in my legs, which need a lot more sun light if you ask me. You can find these shoes at your local Aldo store or online here for $80.
Once I had these shoes I needed something to wear with them. I came across this skirt on Lulus.com. The style is a little 1950’s which I think matches the style of the shoe perfectly. The only issue I encountered when the skirt arrived was the tulle underlay. It added a lot more volume to the skirt, which can be unflattering. I simply cut the tulle from under the skirt (it came off very easily) and the skirt fell closer to my hips. The color was described as mint, and it’s a very rich mint tone. The skirt is high waisted, so a cropped t-shirt or tank works well with it. I bought two different shirts from Express to go with this outfit. You can find them here. I purchased this skirt here at $45 with free shipping.
The bracelet is also from Lulus.com. The light blue tone matched the soft mint tone of my Aldo heels, and the fake jewels add a little sparkle. This bracelet can be found online here for just $16. For my neck piece I found a pretty mint toned necklace at Express. The necklace can be found here or in stores for $40, but buy one necklace at Express right now, and get the second for $9.50.
I hope you fall in love with mint this month like I did!
