Mintspiration

Shirt: Tommy Girl | Jeans: J Crew
Kerchief: Madewell | Watch: Michael Kors
Necklace: H & M | Bracelets: Target and Fossil


Shoes: Kelsi Dagger | Bag: Target



Living in suburban Michigan, I often have to find beauty in places one wouldn't otherwise look. Taking outfit photos is sometimes a difficult task, as my immediate surroundings  really don't offer anything terribly interesting to look at. So, when I see something a little different, or just anything that might add a little pizazz to my photos, I have to take advantage. These were taken in front of a construction set up outside of my local Target. Glamorous, huh? 

I also feel like I am always racing the weather (and daylight), because one second, it's sunny and warm and within moments, it could snow, start hailing, or you could get sucked up like a cow in a tornado. You just never know. 

Well, anyway, these mint jeans always inspire me to create fun outfits! I love them like a close relative. They are more versatile than you would expect and they are the perfect shade of mint. That's the thing about J Crew, they do the perfect shade of any color! Does that make sense to anyone else? Also, I got these super great Kelsi Dagger heels in this periwinkle color (they're called cobalt blue online, but in my opinion, cobalt is darker.) I am loving this color so much lately! And damn I love these two colors together :) 

I hope you enjoyed this look! I will continue to search for new backdrops for photos, so you guys don't have to look at me standing in my driveway, or like in front of Walmart or something. 

Thanks for stopping by!
