Cool Mint

5.15.2012


Blouse from La Di Da Dee, Brooklyn,
See You Soon pants (last seen here), 
14th & Union grey platform sandals, 
Carpisa satchel (last worn here),  
Vintage rings.

Is anyone else shocked that May is halfway over already? I feel as though this year is flying by. As it is, I now have only a little over two weeks until I move. I. can't. wait. Although I still love my current apartment, I've been wanting a change of scenery for awhile now and couldn't pass up the opportunity when a friend of mine told me she was vacating her spot. The best part about my new place? Not only is it still off the Marcy stop, but I'll have a backyard! 

Lauren, being the good sport she is, has been going with me to all the local furniture shops in our neighborhood to help me plan. On this particular day, perhaps inspired by her colorful mint green top and pink satchel combination, we came up with a killer idea for my new backyard decor: Pueblo chic. Let's just say it involves colorful pots, a mural of the Virgin Mary painted by Lauren, and a few religious relics here and there.

Imagine the amazing summertime photo shoot opps with that as a backdrop...

xx, M

  31. Agreed. Time is seriously flying by! OMG. That is the COOLEST top I have ever laid eyes on. I'll be quite honest here, I couldn't deter my eyes away from the 3rd shot just because of its insanely good quality and bright color pop. PERFECT outfit.

  41. Hey Lauren!

    that is a great mint top! definitely has summer written all over it! Loved how you paired them with really timeless simple pieces , you just let the mint top speak for itself! Also really digging the tortoise shell shades!

    great look!
