Mint and Rust

This outfit was inspired by... a coffee mug.
If you happen to follow me on instagram or twitter, you may have noticed a recent series of photos in which I am coordinating my coffee mug to my outfit.
This was a challenge presented to me by my Mother and I'm now on day six of an indeterminate number of days. I guess for as many different mugs are in my cabinet, and considering I like to buy coffee mugs as much as I like to by clothes, this could go on for a while...

Darn you Lyddie. I have a well-documented hatred of mint but I love rust and now you've made me think I need some mint just so I can pair it with my beloved rust.

Love this outfit!

I love the rust and the mint together!

Ayumi Lafser said...

Wow, that's a fabulous idea to get inspirations from! Never thought of that! Though, all my coffee mugs are only 1-2 colors per mug so it's kinda hard for me... to find the color combos.... I like how you combined rust and mint... I just recently got rust button up shirt so this gives me an inspiration to try combining my shirt with something mint! ;) Very nice!

What a fun bit of inspiration! It makes me want to build an outfit based on something unusual in my house, like a painted vase.

Also, who knew mint and rust could look so good together?!

Jennifer Aranda said...
