Mint and Lime

Mint and lime: It works in cocktails, AND in outfits. Especially on St. Patty's Day.

Clearly, I was having a good hair day. That, and the wind helped. :)

This top is from 2007. Clothes hoarding pays off, people.  Everything comes back in style. Especially those things that never really go out of style, like black and white stripes.

Sometimes my pants look lime. Other times they look like pastel yellow. They're more of a lime green in person, but they can totally work both ways.

I got this cute little purse for $25 at TJ Maxx last month.

      I got this at TJ Maxx, but it's Steve Madden. Perhaps you can find it online? I did link two slightly similar bags, but they don't have the nice pastel contrast that this one has. :/
