Mint & Coral

I’ve always loved the combination of turquoise and coral, but the on-going mint phenomenon has had me wanting to freshen up the color combination. The juxtaposition of the warm and cool colors feels so… right.

Top: Express // Mint Jeans: Paige // Espadrilles: Sperry Top-Sider // Bangles: Sequin

Funny story… I wore this outfit to dinner at Taco Joint last night and realized that the last time I wore this top was last summer when I went to Taco Joint. Something about tacos and a margarita has me reaching for coral!

Also, I kind of hate these mint skinnies on me. I always feel super uncomfortable in them. I would wear them so much more if I liked how they looked on my legs… Any mint jean recommendations??

      Thanks! They’re the perfect “go with everything” shoe. My feet are kind of wide so my only complaint is that my fourth toe jams in to the front strap when I walk. Not unbearable, but not exactly pleasant!

    Omg, love this color combo! I’ve yet to purchase any mint clothing & I feel so left out of this trend. Guess it’s time to do a little shopping!!

    I feel the same way about colored denim, I just feel like it’s not flatter on my body shape. I found mine at Target believe it or not, they were those most flattering pair I tried on and I went EVERYWHERE! But it was a few months ago, so not sure if they are still there or not. Either way, you look gorg darling!

    Love the color combination! And I think those jeans look great on you–I would love a pair of mint skinnies but still have to find a flattering pair. Love your bracelets too!

    Those espadrilles are to die for – I love them! I think those jeans look cute, but I know there was a decently cheap pair at Target recently, and I got mine at Nordstrom for a good price too (Wit & Wisdom brand), so those might be worth checking out! :)

    I think the mint skinnier look great on you, but if you’re not comfortable in them,mthats important! The color combo on you with those espadrilles looks fab!
