This weekend truly felt like the first of fall. So like many others, I broke out the comfy sweaters and boots. One thing I can’t quite give up on yet though is mint and it seems a shame to pack it all up with the first chill in the air.
The mint trend is one I jumped on to wholeheartedly but I tried to look for pieces that would still look fresh long after the last magazine spread. When I spotted this tweed jacket at ZARA, I knew I had found a way to bring the color into fall. With it’s classic shape and fabric, I know I’ll be wearing it for seasons to come. And this mint and gold polka dot blouse? Well, it may not last forever but at under $35, I’m sure I’ll get my fair share of wear out of it while the obsession continues.
I don’t have to don the corporate look for work anymore but I can’t quite let go of the love of a blouse & blazer. So now I just pair them with a pair of jeans, rolled up to show my shoes a little more love.
Enough of my rambling, here’s my attempt at bringing mint into fall…
