FRESHLY MINTED. Haha, clever title, no? This was the all-mint green outfit I was aiming for this St. Patrick's Day but it rained the entire day in San Diego, so yesterday (3/19) was the perfect opportunity to wear it back in St. Louis: 84 degrees and sunny (someone needs to fire that meteorologist, because we all felt like losers in our rain gear) and SPRING SPRING SPRING! There's nothing more mood-lifting than the blossoming pastels of flowering trees on campus and spontaneous trips to Starbucks and the Loop. In fact I think the Midwest skipped spring and went ahead and did summer on the Spring Equinox. Warning: this post may lead to visual overdosing on mint green. This exceeds your recommended daily amount by 10^9. Proceed with caution and open-mindedness towards my pastel obsession problems.

Can you believe this mini Longchamp Le Pliage look-alike was a free gift from a contacts store in Taiwan? At first I had no idea what I would use such a tiny thing for but it surprisingly holds a lot: my EKG manual, sunglasses, keys, cards, notes, etc. It also folds up and buttons shut and is quite sturdy. The socks were free gift along with a cute plastic popsicle container when I got my Tarepanda mini-scale too. My white pumping disappearing into the lush grass, almost feeling their cool soft spikiness between my toes, add a few pearls to balance the mint with cream. This big tree with all the gorgeous white flowers finally woke from its slumber and gave off such a wondrous aroma. It felt like playing under a giant mushroom and then the bumblebees scared me off. Ha.

Here's a funny story: since I've had this outfit planned for a week now, I wasn't taking no for an answer - rain or shine. But alas, after pulling both mint items out of my suitcase, they were and have been wrinkled (the most frustrating fabric) and unsightly. So I dripped some water on them and hung them on my window, hoping the sun would dry them before class, but they remained sopping wet. Then I threw them in the laundry. Then I aired them out during racquetball practice. Then I went to the locker room and held them under the hand dryer machine for 20 minutes. Yay finally dry and unwrinkly! Then I put them on and they immediately wrinkled FML lol.

I really need to go to bed earlier - self, at 3 AM.

I wouldn't even have known that bag was a look alike. It looks really really real! And the color!!!!!!! Omg, I love the minty colors :D For some reason, it reminds me a lot of the wrigley double mint commercials.. those nice classic ones :D

Hope you're having a beautiful warm day today =D

You definitely look like a pop of spring with all the mint and bunnies on you, which are so cute! I love the color of the bag.. need myself a mint bag too. Hope the weather is nicer for you than it is here in SF!

Minty fresh indeed! That lechamp dupe is amazing. You carry around an EKG manual?! Hilarious and so geeky! Isn't Taiwan amazing with their "free with purchase" stuff. Sometimes I buy b/c the gift is so cool! Anyways, love the bunny print. Saw a red one at H&M yesterday! Beautiful backdrop with the tree :). Enjoy it!

First thing I noticed - actually no, first I chuckled at your clever title first haha then... - "Ah! yayyyy my favourite colour!"
Mint is pretty much EVERYONE's favourite colour right now, I'd say. It's so fresh and lovely. Good work wearing so much of it at once.

Second thing I noticed - Hmmm she didn't iron her clothes. I like that. Too often you see people on their blogs who just look like they're modeling impeccable, crisp pieces that never get a real dose of playtime... this is more real to me so keep up the laziness with no ironing!

It's a pleasure to come across your blog, I really like the way you write. Amazed that you got such adorable pieces for FREE :O gasp.
Also, bunnies rock.

Take care! I'll be sure to follow your blog :D xZ

Love love love this outfit post. You look so fresh and vibrant. Kind of like a breath of fresh air. I think it's because of the color, which is oh so minty. I absolutely love it! You look beautiful in all your photos but this has to be my favorite (: Great job, Angie!

I LOVE mint green, which is weird because I'm not usually a fan of pastels. You worked the whole mint look great! Haha, wrinkles suck, don't they? That's why I never iron, lol. Thanks so much for all the sweet comments you've been leaving lately, you're such a sweet<3

I love those mint green scalloped shorts! Something about the scalloped hem is so feminine and flirty. I love it. Sorry about the craziness with your shorts though! I hate wrinkles! And I don't know if you checked, but Target has some cat eye sunglasses (if that's what you're looking for) in various shades. They're pretty cute. Thanks so much for visiting and commenting on my blog! <3
