Mint Green for SPRING/SUMMER 2011

So, if you read my Saturday post (My Newest Obsession: Jeffrey Campbell 99 TIE Mint Green Suede Wedges), you'll know that I'm totally loving the mint green trend now that the weather is warming up! I think what I really love about it is that its a summery shade, but a cool tone. I'm far more of a winter gal, so cool tones > warm shades. Always.

Anyways, as I mentioned in another post, I'm totally in love with these shoes. Think I should SPLURGE?!


In addition to the shoes, InStyle tweeted a few weeks ago, asking its followers which shade of nail polish they preferred for this season! My answer? MINT GREEN. And this was before everyone was obsessing over it...


InStyle and Jeffrey Campbell aren't the only ones getting into the trend! No, perhaps the latest (and greatest!) use of mint green was accomplished by none other than my absolute favorite style blogger, Bebe Zeva. (Check out my interview with Bebe HERE!).

Last week, Bebe posted an adorable outfit (see: Asleep At A Party) in which she wore her famous grunge Doc Martin's, veiled hat, and, to my extreme pleasure, a vintage mint green night robe. Now, I totally don't expect to see anyone else (other than Bebe Zeva and Taylor Momsen!) wearing night clothes out of the house, but the spring vibe is definitely there! And, its simply gorgeous:



Now, I'm well aware that I'm totally, completely obsessed with everything mint green all of a sudden.... Its actually pretty funny because I usually hate mint everything. In fact, I'm even allergic to York Mints!!! (Yes, and Gatorade, too, its true.)

But honestly, its a very unique shade that we really don't see much.When it comes to greens, its typically either olive, dark, or lime green. Never, ever mint. So, obsessed or not, I plan to enjoy the trend!!

  1. I too absolutely adore mint green it's unique but completely elegant at the same time - a perfect combination for me :) I adore the shoes I'd get them ha-ha they're stunning + would work with so many things - I'm picturing them with black skinnies and a loose white shirt + waistcoat. I'm sure you'd style them up fabulously!

    Gorgeous blog - Now following you :)

  2. @fashionismyh2o Exactly! Its really the perfect shade... I'm seeing it as a neutral, but I know that's not the case for everyone! It IS gorgeous, though, and can totally work with anything!

    LOVE your idea of how to style it! I was actually wearing that EXACT same outfit when I tried them on (but with a light pink shirt!)

    Thanks so much for following! I'm now following back! #235! :)
