Mint Chip

I am more selective about my post titles these days.  As a blogger trying to get my name out there I use words that I know are highly searched on Google and will direct traffic to my site.  For example, I am confident you came across this post because you were searching for tasty images of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Instead I have masterfully tricked Google into tricking you to read all about a mint green mesh knit sweater and shorts by ALEXANDER WANG that I saw on the the Shopbop Hit List and how it has led to my growing affection for MINT GREEN.  I admit this logic seems a bit hasty but don't give up on me yet, somewhere in there is potential.

A sucker for bold brights I never thought a pastel color could have the same effect yet there is something about this tone-on-tone look that is similarly energetic and refreshing. I suppose that's why it's a choice color for hospitals and OR scrubs. O, R they? (Rushmore quotes anyone?).  I'm sure the image of hospitals and scrubs are not the kind of thoughts Alexandre Herchcovitch, Badgley Mischka, or Christopher Kane were trying to envoke for Spring 2011 even though I have to say that a certain Prada's menswear look comes awfully close. No worries my male counterparts, everyone loves a well dressed nurse! So instead of bad hospital memories let your mind traipses elsewhere and consider this color for your spring wardrobe.  I think with my stomach so you know what I'll be thinking about....

I thrifted this V-Neck knit mint green top at Goodwill this weekend.  It was actually a part of a set, skirt and top. I'm regretting not picking up the skirt so hopefully no one reads this post before I get back to the store!  *crossing fingers* It's such an unflattering boxy top that I think my only resolution is to turn it into a crop top and pair it with crisp white high-waisted trousers and neutral heels.
