A Hint Of Mint

A year ago, if someone were to ask me my least favorite color, the answer would’ve probably been “mint green”…fast forward to the upcoming spring season, and my mind’s quickly changing.  After seeing this shade in so many chic options, I’m re thinking all my pre-conceived notions of institutional wall paint and ice cream.  And, while I don’t think I could pull off this hue in a full blown outfit, a hint of mint in my accessories just suddenly seems so very fresh to me.

  6. I used to hate mint also! But now I like it a little more. What I can't stand is aqua. Maybe that will change also.

  11. LOVE mint – it might be my favorite color! We have mint walls in our living room/dining room and I always feel so refreshed when I come out of our bedroom in the morning. PS I have that Max Wanger LOVE print – it's one of our favorite pieces of artwork!

  12. I think the "hint" part is the key. I just saw a nail polish coming out from OPI in this color and I love it!

  17. Zhush,
    I'm with you on mint and felt that way until I looked at that clutch and quickly changed my mind that it isn't so bad afterall. What a fab find! xoxo.

  18. I love mint. Isn't it funny how our tastes change over time? I swore I'd never wear Ugg boots…. and I now have about 3 or 4 pairs in my closet. I really adore that clutch!

  19. I actually love mint green in small doses that is. Its a very soft, serene kind of color and like you, there are colors I never liked that I am warming up to. Go figure!
