Clothed with Grace: Lovin' Mint

Lovin' Mint


Mint has really come in full force this spring and summer and has a huge presence in stores, Blogland, and Pinterest.  I don't know about you, but although I'm totally drawn to the color, knowing how to wear it can be overwhelming.  I recently picked up a great blouse at Express.  If you are trying to introduce mint into your wardrobe, I think a clean, classic blouse is a great way to start.  I've come up with three ways to style this blouse and was quite surprised by it's versatility.


Casual


For this look, I've paired the blouse with white skimmers, nude heels, a long gold necklace, bright bangle, and a white leather bag. Seen Here
Dressy


For this look, I've paired the blouse with a Jacquard skirt and nude heels.  To accessorize it I added a statement necklace that also incorporates mint, a silver clutch, and a skinny belt.  Similar to this

Girls' Night

For this look, I've paired the blouse with boyfriend jeans and a striped blazer, and leopard heels.  I've accessorized it with a mint statement necklace, a variety of bracelets and a bronze belt.  Seen here
Are you ready to incorporate this great color into your wardrobe?  I've found some great pieces to start you out!

  6. I am in love with every single one of these outfits you put together!! Mint is probably my most favorite color, and I am a sucker for this chiffon blouse!! Especially when you paired it with the striped navy blazer, and with the white skinny jeans and nude pumps. Perfection!
    Aaaand I really really want those Ivanka Trump heels...Too bad the price isn't agreeable!

  25. I really love this top, the first one is one of my favorite outfits of yours, but I am also loving it with the navy striped blazer! I am loving a blue-green combo these days.

  26. Really love how you paired your mint top in the three different looks. I got into mint this spring and am having fun trying to figure out how to wear it. I like it with grey, navy, or white so far, but I'm sure there are many other options out there!

  27. Love the different ways you styled that mint top. I still have yet to buy something mint. I'm waiting on an order and maybe it will have a mint blazer. You look amazing in all 3 looks. Thanks for linking up.

  29. You know I love this Portofino Blouse by Express - not sounding like a broken record. I want one in your color & at least a couple more colors. Anyway, I did buy the cutest Mint Blouse today, so fun & unique.

    I love all 3 ways you styled this but J-ADORE with the Jacquard Skirt. =)
