Today, I need to share with you this color combination of Mint and Purple. Never in a million years would I have paired these two colors together except my friends over at COTD Style had challenged me (and everyone else) to create an outfit incorporating Mint Green and Grimace Purple. And I have to say…I love the result!
When I saw that Mint was part of the challenge, I knew I had to wear my mint trench coat that I picked up on clearance last year at Gap Factory. The temperature is still in the 20’s here in the Arctic North Country of New York State, so I knew I had to add layers underneath my Spring jacket. I wanted to wear my purple chevron printed skater dress, but it is sleeveless and it is short. So I added lots of black layers with a turtleneck and velvet leggings under the dress and a waterfall cardigan on top. I belted it all to keep the shape of the dress.
I added some extra hints of mint in my necklace and earrings and an extra pop of purple with my favorite clutch. So what do you think? Would you ever partner Mint and Purple?
And folks, it has been a crazy week so that’s all I have for you today. Nothing profound or though-provoking. Just a straight up outfit post. And a link up!
