Minty Fresh


Back in Martha's Vineyard! And here begins the slew of delightful Paris purchases I have to show you. This dress came from a crowded little vintage shop in the Marais, recommended by Alix in her absolutely wonderful Paris shopping guide. I visited the store quite a few times, and though there wasn't much turnover I found some amazing things.

This was probably the only dress in the store that hit above my knees. I adore the skater-style skirt and the puffy sleeves, and the color is just to die for. It looks a little blue in the pictures, but it's really the most delicious shade of cool mint green. I wore this outfit to the ballet and felt insanely classy.

Vintage dress, gifted tights and watch, really old Ann Taylor oxfords

Mint green is undoubtedly my new favorite color to wear. I am desperately hoping to snap up some more of it soon. Do think I could get away with wearing mint green in the fall? I suppose only time will tell...

Have you recently discovered a summery color of which you simply cannot get enough?

The color combination reminds me of Spring and candy and all those great things, it's lovely.

Great color combo! I'd like an evening gown in these colors.

beautiful color. it looks really good with the purple. you could probably wear it in the fall if you paired it with black or just dark colors in general (but probably not dark purple). i discovered i really like wearing purple in the summer, as well as pink.

These colors look so good together! You're adorable. I personally have been drawn to an Hermes orangey color lately.
