Spring Essential: Mint

Hello and happy Monday!  Today I am focusing on another spring essential: mint.  There is no doubt that mint is one of the most popular spring colors this year - I have been seeing mint pieces merchandised in pretty much every store window as well as online.  I must admit that I am a fan of mint because it looks good on any skin tone - even my super pale Pacific Northwest shade.   ;)   Mint pairs well with neutral tones and other pastels, and for today's outfit I paired mint denim crops from Banana Republic with a colorblocked sweater from the Limited for a soft spring look.





Sweater: "Colorblock Cardigan" in yellow, $49.90 at the Limited (40% off today with promo code "SPRING") here
Denim: "Pastel Skinny Ankle Jean" in misty blue (available in petite and tall!), $89.50 Banana Republic here
Tank: Banana Republic Factory, similar "Seamless Cami" in cocoon, $25 at Banana Republic here
Wedges: CL by Chinese Laundry "Nima" in nude, $39.95 at Amazon here
Necklace: Loft (no longer available), similar "Long Coral Crystal Necklace" in gold, $29.50 at Loft here
Bracelets: "Gold Bangle Set," $39.50 at J Crew here plus yellow bangle from Forever 21 (old), check out this "Lacquered Bangle Set, $8.80 at Forever 21 here
