Yet another post about mint green? Guilty.

It's March and we're having a snow storm right now (as least 20 cm more are going to fall tonight) but that's ok because my mind is already stuck on spring. I love the neon and pastel colour in the stores right now but I definitely won't be buying much of anything until we have a serious weather-warm-up. 

Easter egg pastels (a carry-over from last year) are my fave right now (yes this is nothing ground-breaking, they're everywhere) but I'm tempted to grab a pair of mint coloured jeans, though I really think they can be a bit tricky to get away with, especially in the lighter tones- since I'm not a size 4...


This pair is from Forever 21's plus collection, the bright mint green shows no mercy. So perhaps this should be a springtime no-go for Mama?  

Maybe I should stick with mint green in small doses, maybe like this Essie colour, Absolutely Shore.
It's actually much greener (less beige) in person but gives a nice pastel pop of mint.

So mint took until this season to grow on me...either way this colour is totally trendy but likely won't be around for yet another season, so maybe there's no harm in picking up a cheap pair of skinnies from Zara, Forever 21 or Old Navy...?

Or...maybe I should stick with a smaller hit of the colour from accessories like a ring or belt.
What do you think of spring's hottest colour, mint? 


Outside our front door tonight...spring in Canada is awesome. Eh?

That is totally the colour that's hot for spring! I don't know how it would look on me, though... maybe with a tan?
Also, argh. Can winter just GO AWAY already? I'm so over this freezing cold, and snow...

I actually have that Essie color on now! I love it! I want some jeans in mint green.

Yes to mint. I love mint jeans and tried on that exact pair at F21 yesterday. I didn't buy them because the material was cheap and they were ill fitting...

A pair of mint jeans are on my wishlist! P.S. We experienced the same kind of weather a couple of days although it's supposed to get warmer starting tomorrow. (Fingers crossed!)

Go ahead and get the skinnies! You're are way to fab not too :) x

Not sure if you have a Zara but I found a pair of mint ones for $35 that are much nicer than the ones from F21! You could totally rock them.

I don't know what I think of mint. I like mint nails and accessories. I like it on other people. I just can't see myself wearing a mint dress or mint skinnies.
