Mint Cardi + Poppy Dress

Every so often, when an idea for an outfit pops into my head, I type it into my iPhone's notepad app, and then promptly forget about it.

"Mint cardi + Poppy dress" was thought of months ago, and it wasn't until I had to note another outfit idea recently that I saw it and actually decided to put it together.
I'm glad I did, I love how these two colors play off one another.

  1. Ooh! I really like this look. Very nice.

    When an outfit idea pops up in my head at work, I put it on a post it note. I found about 10 post it notes in my lunchbox the other day with outfit ideas, ha ha! Maybe I should put it in my phone like you do. Heather

  2. Oh my gosh, I'm glad I'm not the only one who scribbles down outfit ideas in their iPhone notes!! haha. <3

    But oh, gosh, how this outfit pops so nicely! I saw it on my dashboard and it even looked amazing shrunk down. I love how those earrings match just perfectly, too.

  10. I thought i was the only one who wrote down ideas for outfits and then totally forgot about them. I have a box at home with magazine cut outs, a folder in my computer and a board on pinterest.... i take forever to execute mine.
    I like how this turned out :)

  14. I am so dumb, I haven't thought of doing this on my iphone! That is such a great idea! Sometimes I write down a sketch (I can't draw but it's enough for me to know when I look later) but then I loose that book!

  40. One again convincing me that red is definitely the right color to wear with mint. I'm sad sandal wearing days will be over very soon. I think yesterday might actually have been the last one for New York.
