Winter Mint

How was your weekend, friends? Do you ever have those weekends that are so busy you need a weekend from your weekend? That’s what I need right now. A whole other weekend to play catch up. Is Monday too soon to countdown to the weekend? 

I’m probably getting antsy in general because next week we are headed to Vegas for a tradeshow for bloom. Rumor has it that it’s going to be in the high 60s there. I’m probably going to pack my swimsuit, just in case. 60s sound so good right now, as I’m completely done with this winter. My hair, my clothes, my mood — we’ve had it with you, Winter. Don’t let the patio gate hit you in the behind. Of course I do have a strong love for sweaters and this is just about the only time of year that I can use out of them. But other than that, winter and I are breaking up. 
Sweater: Greylin
Pants: J.Crew
Heels: Similar

  8. I know that feeling, my weekends are always too busy and hectic. Surprising combination of the burgundy pants and the mint sweater, I'd never guessed it would be such a great match!

    Loving this color combo! As far as Vegas in winter — it's still chilly, but pack your swimsuit for the hot tub because it is wonderful. I was there in January and was wearing skinnies and loafers (no socks!) with a blouse and then a sweater or jacket in the evening. And pack a lot of lotion to combat desert dryness.

    LOVE this color combo. I know I mixed mint and burgundy once, but it was over a year ago. It's about time to bring it back! Esp. because this outfit is way better than what I wore probably.

    I'm tired of winter, too. We got 2 inches of straight ice last week! I do love my sweaters too, though, so it'll be hard when the cold goes. I love cold weather fashion, but hate the cold weather. Figures.
