color crush: mint

I've always loved turquoise. And aqua. And in high school and early college I wore it all the time, to the point where I think I overdosed a bit on the color. But I'm ready for a revisit-- especially in a fresh, soft version of the color. Mint is a delicious option-- lighter, softer, and delicious-- like my favorite ice cream flavor. 
Here's some of the mint pretties I'm craving lately (besides the ice cream):



3. alice dress by shabby apple. 
5. wouldn't these bowls look adorable with little candies in them?
6. i love love love this belt (and the entire vanilla and lace shop) 

xo, erika

p.s. i was so inspired by this collection that I painted my nails mint :)

  4. I love mint too! It's a great spring color for sure :) I don't think I own any mint colored clothing though, I guess I just paint my nails and admire lots of pretty mint colors like those earrings and bow belt!

  10. I saw a pair of mint colored jeans at Kohls this weekend, and even tried them on. I didn't like how they looked/fit and I was so disappointed. Mint is such a great color!
