Minted + Giveaway

There are a few colors I hope never go “out”: magenta-infused plum for cool falls, bright coral for mid-summers, hunter green for crisp winters, and mint for budding spring.

A Lonestar State of SouthernThat’s what struck me about this skirt from Catch Bliss Boutique. The color. So classic and so… spring.

A Lonestar State of SouthernAnd let’s be honest, spring is all I’m wanting at the moment.

A Lonestar State of SouthernThis entire outfit was focused on the color of the skirt.

mint1I stayed away from the pinks and oranges I’m often drawn to and chose instead to compliment with stripes and neutrals.

mint4And I’m so glad I did… I loved the understated simplicity and freshness mute tones brought the outfit.

And let's be honest, spring is all I'm wanting at the moment.I added a bowed belt (one of my finer investments from Forever21), nude pumps and pearls to play up the preppiness, but can’t wait for summer to throw the skirt on with a bright tank, wedges, and a Kendra Scott necklace. (Already jumping to summer, slowww down Kate!)

mint8And guess what! To bring some new goodies to your wardrobe (and spring break suite case), Catch Bliss Boutique is giving away a $50 gift card! I’m daydreaming of what I’d spend it on – this necklace and this dress are both top contenders.

  10. I just found your blog and am so excited! That skirt is way too cute, and L.K. Bennett shoes are my absolute favorite! I actually used to order them from the UK before they were available here. I am SO thrilled they are starting to spread through the US.
