Mint Jeans - - they're all the rage!! I had wanted some for a while, but then I went to SNAP and everyone was wearing them (or so it seemed) and then I knew that I HAD to have them!
Of course I looked all around and they were no where to be found. Luckily I am a facebook fan of Quincee's Boutique and they posted that a new shipment of them had arrived. I don't live anywhere near that store, but no worries you can just email them to order. They helped me pick a size and mailed them out THAT DAY to me. Now that's awesome customer service!! Check out their FB page and follow along to see great style ideas.
I've seen a few things on Pinterest about how to wear Mint Jeans, but those gals always look so great - like model-great. So I thought I'd put together something like "how a real person can wear mint jeans". Just so you know, this is the most work ever I've put into a What I Wore Wednesday post - creating a photo collage, wearing mint jeans every other day, etc - phew! Normally I just dump in a few pictures into my WIWW posts and call it good. Anyways, here we go....
It's kind of hard to tell in this picture, but this top is kind of crazy - it has a bunch of twists around the bust and a flap thing that hangs down and the whole thing kind of billows out. I thought a top in the plain color of white but with all those factors added some visual interest that helped balance the fun-ness of the mint jeans.
Yep, I tried the color-blocking trend! I think this was a little out of my comfort zone because of the three colors. I am good at using a couple of colors - like I normally would have picked the mint jeans with the yellow cardigan - but adding the pop of pink was to push myself. I like it, but I might stick to two colors just so I feel a little more comfortable.Paparazzi) looked great with the mint:
Next up, a casual look with the mint jeans - just a gray striped tshirt, gray TOMS, hair in a ponytail, etc. I liked knowing that I could dress-down in mint jeans, but still look fun and stylish.
Coral - Tangerine Tango - light orange - whatever you want to call the color of 2012, it goes great with mint! I know this picture is kind of off and blury - preschool photographers try their best :)
Look at this one - mixing trends! So cutting edge :) I am wearing a cream lace top (with a white shirt underneath) and have pops of yellow. This is what I wore out to dinner for our anniversary. I thought it was a little dressy because of the lace, but not too much so....
Ah, the inescapable denim shirt - you know I'm growing to love it so of course I had to try it with the mint jeans. I think it really worked! I tried it with a belt and without, and they gave 2 different looks. I think I lean towards the more causal look without the belt.
So that's my recap on different ways I've tried to wear my mint jeans. I really love them!! They're fun and make me feel like I might actually be in style when I wear them.
I put together the picture collage in case some of you pin this to pinterest and want all the pictures in one spot.... (have I told you how hilarious it is to me when I see myself on Pinterest for "fashion" posts - I feel like I'm normally fashionless!)
So, do you have a favorite "look" with the mint jeans?? Any suggestions on other looks that I should try??
