For the Love of Mint!

Due to finals and moving back home to Texas, blogging has been rather far down on my list of things to do. Fortunately, I have an embarrassingly wide-open summer, and plan on being much more focused on The Corner Apartment. Expect new features, design, and whatever else comes to mind.

The newest feature, as you can see below, is called "For the love of..." and will include mostly trends and looks. A step up from A Weekend Outfit, I suppose.

It's clear that a mint trend has appeared for this spring and summer. And while it initially evokes in me a memory of a very bad minty-hued tiled bathroom in an old house I used to live in, a second thought is that provides a breath of fresh air to dull basics (khaki, white, black) while pairing well with almost any other color.

Of course, my personal favorite is the Rebecca Minkoff Mini 5 Zip Clutch (#3). There are a number of other bright candy-colored versions, but the unique mint hue is my overwhelming favorite. The Equipment shirt, too is another favorite. But who isn't in love with every Equipment shirt they lay eyes on? I will always believe in silk blouses.

    1. Of course they were gone! I feel like all my favorites from J Crew are gone too by the time I get around to wanting to buy them. I guess we have a good eye? Thanks for commenting!
