Mint + Emerald

I don't want to speak too soon, but it might be possible spring has indeed arrived. In honor of the nice weather, I finally wore this mint pencil skirt I got back in December, along with my newly thrifted emerald green blouse (100% silk for $10 - yes please!), and this rhinestone necklace I dug out of the clearance section at Kohl's for $2.

Over the weekend, I helped my Brother photograph a wedding, baked the most perfect batch of Chocolate Muzzettes, and lost big time in the Easter Egg hunt with my siblings (which we still do, very competitively, every year).

If anyone would like to help me get out of 26th place in the running for Wallis's Blogger Ambassador, I would greatly appreciate it. You can vote every day until the 9th.

  3. Oh my, Lyddie, this combination is stunning! I never knew how well emerald and mint went together. I've really gotta try this with my own skirt. And $10 for an 100% silk top is kind of incredible... Those are the deals that make thrifting totally worth it.

    I'm super jealous that you all still do an Easter Egg hunt. That is precious and perfect.

    && I've been voting for you every day! <3

  36. Happy Easter! I love that you still do an Easter egg hunt every year, and even more than it's competitive - although I must say, I would lose miserably every year; I can never see anything, especially if it's right in front of my face ;) And this is the perfect look for the Easter holidays, especially if you're finally having spring weather... I had never considered pairing emerald and mint, but you've totally convinced me that they're the perfect match!
