I’m admitting to another obsession today…the color mint! I cannot seem to get enough of this color. How did I know I was obsessed with this color? I purchased a pair of Lace Crochet Shorts because they were mint-colored. Can you say “Intervention needed“? I returned them within 24 hours. I have no idea what I was thinking with that purchase.
But, I do have some mint-colored items already in my closet that I wore this week for some training at my Corporate Office.
Inspired by this look from the January 2012 issue of In Style magazine, I couldn’t wait to wear green and purple with leopard boots. I tweaked the idea a little as I just love the J Crew Sterling Skirt and wanted to wear that instead of my Viridian Green Pencil Skirt from last year.
And my take on this outfit…J Crew Tippi Sweater, J Crew Sterling Skirt, J Crew Jello Mold Bracelet, Ann Taylor Booties.
I seriously considered adding Leopard boots to my Fall Shopping list but knew I wouldn’t get much use out of them. The booties I have are way more practical and pretty comfortable too.
The next day, I had to consider the weather outside and inside the training room. Why do they keep those rooms so cold? I adore my Kate Spade Karolina Heels in Aqua which matched the little hints of mint in the Jessie Blouse. The Wool Cafe’ Capri pants might be from last year but maybe even the year before. These were one of the items I had altered and am so happy I did. I think the length is perfect now and I also had the cuff removed from the hem. A skinny mint belt keeps it all looking professional and polished.
Just a few more days left until all of our shopping efforts are appreciated, right? I have stocking-stuffers to buy and some treats to make but I’ve been done with shopping (for others) for about a week. I was even able to get a little treat for you! Yep, a Give-Away will be coming next week so be on the look-out?
Want a hint? What do you give the girl who has all J Crew?
A few outfits from my recent office visits. The first outfit is one I copied exactly and originally planned to wear earlier this year but due to the cold weather changed out the bottoms that are in the second pic below. I love the color combo and the heels are one of my favorite pairs.
Sweater: Ann Taylor Extrafine Merino Wool 3/4 Sleeve Sweater, Cameo Pink
Skirt: J Crew Factory Double-Serge Cotton Pencil Skirt, Byzantine Blue
Next up are the most comfortable dress pants…EVER! I found these Cashmere pants on ebay last year and love them. They are not lined but I’m ok with that. I stayed in the Cashmere family with a Cashmere Tee. I was cozy all day in my fabulous pants.
Sweater: J Crew Cashmere Tee, Green (old)
Pants: JC Cashmere Plaid Pants (Sample, ebay)
I’m so excited for this evening as Molly from Anthromollogies is having a Holiday Event at my local Anthropologie. It’s taking all my energy to stayed focused on work and not run to my closet to figure out what I’m going to wear. I hope to Tweet some, if my phone cooperates.
Have a Great Day!
