Turning Heads #Linkup Minty Green



You all know I love lace, right? Well, there are so many different styles and kinds of lace, one can find that there are many options. I DID mix it up here with this crepe wrap top in this monochrome minty look. Added pattern with my BC Footwear navy, peach, green and yellow floral shoes with some sparkle on top!





These earrings are from Charleston in the shop we visited last year called, Reinvented.

Top and Skirt: Ann Taylor, BC Footwear floral flats Handbag, Kate Spade

Hello ladies!

The weather here in Charlotte officially feels like summer, as we have had non-stop sun and high temps. I really love sitting out at places sharing a bottle of Pinot Gris, and a light lunch. Today I was ready for some minty-blue green shades as this monochromatic look is changed by the floral navy, pink, peach and green pointed flats with a jewel on top. I also added my quilted Kate Spade bag as a complimentary baby blue color as if the two would serve as a color block.

As I sit outside, I do count my blessings, as summer is kind to me and my muscles, much more than the winter months. I enjoy the feeling of the warm sun on my legs and am usually the one to suggest that I sit in the sun, while he sheilds himself with the umbrella. I am careful, however, as this girl does not always react favorably with the sun’s rays on my skin, so I have to remind myself to use sunscreen!

Mint is a color that doesn’t seem to lose it’s popularity, although I would still wear it regardless. One of those colors that seems to work with fair skin and red hair, the green tone is one of my favorites. I chose this ruched style top as it shows the small of the waist .
