3 Ways to Wear

Happy Friday!! I'm doing something a little different for today's 3 ways. Instead of centering around one article of clothing I'm going to be working with color and one particular combination

























I'm really loving these colors paired together and I think they can work in a lot of different styles! Lets see what I come up with;

3 ways to wear mint and lavender




This first look is feminine and a bit conservative.  The striped shirt helps to ground this look a little and the dainty details make this a very girly, but still wearable look.

In this look I used the mint as an accent and paired this floral skirt with a lot of basic neutrals. I also chose a cropped jacket to keep the proportions right and highlight the skirt as the focal piece. I love the way the mint necklace looks against the soft gray and can see this being a great date night outfit!

This look is a great way to show that 'edgy' doesn't necessarily mean black and spikes. Even the softest pastels can lend a rocker vibe when paired with the right accessories!


 I was having so much fun with this color combo that I thought I'd put together one more to really illustrate that the way you style an outfit really affects the overall outcome!  Here the same basics that were in the last look are repeated (mint sweater, lavender scarf and black boots) but by changing up the styling and adding more movement with soft fabrics it completely changes the look!

I hope you enjoyed 4 ways to wear it!  What is your favorite look?  Are you a fan of this color combo? I have a feeling we're going to be seeing a lot this pairing in spring!

  6. I would never have thought of putting lavender with mint- they go so well together! I have a pair of mint jeans I'm pulling back out now that spring is on the way, will definitely be pairing them with some lavender now! x
