Double Mint

Well hello there 2013. I hope the feelings I have right now, about a new year with a fresh start when anything and everything could happen last, and that things do in fact, happen.

I know things are always happening, like three different shades of green in the same outfit happened, but I mean bigger things, better things, important things.

It all comes down to me of course, and maybe, just maybe I can make them happen. I think I'll leave you with this quote I've been carrying around since my senior year of high school, and believe in the possibility that is my year, the year this quote changes from potential, to actual.

"The day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud became more painful than the risk it took to blossom."

Happy New Year.

  1. I love all the mint!
    And yes, last year I started coming out of my blossom, haha...let's hope it continues this year :)

  2. The nails are still holding up strong! ;) Love love the purse.


  3. Happy New Year doll. I hope you remain strong and achieve all you want to this year :)

    P.S. love the unexpected red/mint combo. very chic

  4. Happy New Year! It sounds like you're feeling right now exactly how I was feeling at this time last year and speaking from experience, all I can say is that no matter how terrifying the risk, it's so worth taking it :) I hope 2013 is the year when your big dreams come true. Oh, and of course a year of amazing style, too. But since you're successfully wearing red and green without looking like a Christmas tree, I think you pretty much have that covered ;)

  5. I absolutely love the double mint! I've been looking for ways to combine different shades of the same color family lately too!
