Minted (See Jane Wear)

BDG jeans, Old Navy chambray shirt, H&M sweater (old), Mulberry bag, Dolce Vita snakeskin flats, Karen Walker sunglasses










The perfect pair of mint-green jeans have been occupying my thoughts for awhile now.  I went back and forth in my mind justifying another pair of colored jeans, but once I found a less expensive version at Urban Outfitters, I jumped on the opportunity (see: completely justified).  Honestly, green hasn't always been a favorite color of mine, but I've always had a thing for a fresh, minty hue.  It started young when I deemed mint chocolate chip the end-all, be-all of ice creams flavors and I've been a fan ever since.

*note: my image host seems slightly distorts the color of these jeans (not sure why); they're actually a bit more subtle than the green shown here.

I actually just invested in this same pair, and the yellow ones as well. They're so great! I love how you paired them with the chambray and neutral knit here.

The colour of your Mulberry bag is so gorgeous against the soft mint green of your jeans. Can't wait to see how else you style up these babies this spring!

Have a great week!

when i was younger, the green mint chocolate chip and the white mint chocolate chip seemed to be from two different planets.... now, for the most part, artificially dyed foods (mostly blues and true greens) creep me out, a lot. but i still like green mint chocolate chip.

love your chambray shirt under the sweater.

Awww, so pretty Anna! I have the F21 version of those minty jeans and love them. Paired pretty similarly with a chambray shirt. Just makes you feel springy when it's a bit chilly out!

I like them! Especially when paired with the denim shirt and sweater.

I have those same jeans! I'd also been on the lookout for a while. Mint was my must-have, but now I want some in every pastel shade there is. I think I'm going to buy a few pairs of white jeans and dye them lavender, peach, etc. etc.

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

I adore this combo - it is so pretty yet laidback!

Love, love, love those jeans! Particularly if they're a little more subtle in person--but either way, OMG, I've been wishing for some new pastel jeans for spring and I think aqua is what I need!
