Why have I resisted pastels for so long??? Today’s outfit is mint green monochromatic and I am loving this look. This is not at all a color I would normally gravitate toward, but the shirt was calling my name. I tried to ignore the whispers, but I could hear it saying “I’m so soft, come feel me.” “You love checks.” “I promise I’ll be easy to wear, look no buttons.” Lol!On the way to Tennessee, we stopped for a little shopping. Shocking, I know! I went into Maurices with Bertha, one of my BFF’s. She had a gift card from Christmas that was burning a hole in her pocket. She was paying and I was walking out the door, when I heard the soft whisperings. I looked up on the wall and saw this shirt. I was immediately smitten.I’m not even sure what color this is, but the website calls it sea salt. I had them get me down a size large, and went to pay. Then as I was waiting in line, I turned around and saw these leggings. They would not have been my first choice. They had a soft pink, a soft yellow, and a coral. I decided to give the mint a try since it was not something I already had in my closet.I found this Chloe & Isabel necklace that I received when I signed up to be a merchandiser, and I thought it would go perfect with this outfit. There was only one problem, it was not long enough. This is a convertible necklace, so I could have taken off the shorter pendants, but I wanted all three. So, I improvised. I took a short necklace, and attached it to the C & I necklace. I was wearing a collar, so I knew you would never see the short necklace. I use this method all the time, with either a short necklace, or if that is too long, I use a bracelet. The crystal earrings and link bracelet are also from Chloe & Isabel. The boyfriend watch was a gift from Bertha years ago.Here is a side view, not the most flattering look for me, but I can’t go through life only facing head first. Haha Can you believe how well this little straw purse matches my outfit. I bought this for about 10.00 at the vintage fashion show. It is not really vintage, but I liked the colors and thought it looked “springy.” I added a pop-of-color with these coral shoes that I bought at DSW in Atlanta when I went to visit my sister. I bought three pair of shoes there and only paid 30.00 for all of them together. I love the clearance aisle. Here are some links to the outfit I have on.
