So after purchasing the mint scout chinos from J.Crew the other week, I was suffering from mint-on-the-brain, a condition only overcome by the wearing mint. I’m not ready to wear my scouts yet though, since I bought them snug on purpose. I want them to fit loosely, not tight, when all’s said and done…. and welp, as I’ve said before….the Bankster left some loose change behind. I’m losing steadily and almost there….but in the meantime, I still wanted my mint fix. So I opted for a more saturated spearmint in my current closet to satisfy. The pale peach colorway of the J.Crew Buffalo check shirt seemed to compliment the mint hue perfectly, twice in one week. so you get a two-fer here. Two Minty Buffalos.
If you’re looking for a great necklace to satisfy a bit 0′ mint, the Celadon Shapes Necklace is a fabulous piece. Just enough sparkle, just a hint of color, long and layered….it’s lovely through and through. The Split Surface Belt was a quick snatch purchase I made a while back. I bought both colorways and ended up returning the neutral one since I clearly didn’t need both. There are mint, peach, rust, purple, blue, and brown chevrons going on in this belt, making it a real team player. I highly suggest this one as well. I bought a medium. This belt is a case in point example of how Anthro always gets the accessories right. My outfit could have been pretty “meh” without it, frankly. The flats I’m wearing in both outfits were from the the J.Crew outlet Motherload visit with my SIL, and the cardi in the first outfit was the one I snagged on serious sale the following Monday. I’m pleased as pie with all my purchases thus far. Shopping nirvana.
Hope you’ve had a bit of nirvana yourself lately, hopefully involving mint.
