Some good news first before I launch into this post: I’m not moving! Whew. I get to stay in my Wicker Park apartment for one more year and that makes me beyond happy. It’s such a huge weight off my shoulders and I can finally concentrate on more important things.
And okay, so it’s FINALLY nice in Chicago. Meaning that it’s forever raining but the temps are finally spring-like. Huzzah! And with spring comes my latest obsession: all things mint.
I love this light color right now in almost any form. Can you really blame me?
Exhibit #1: These headphones from Urban Outfitters.
I have approximately one pair of big headphones and I’ve been wanting a new pair for days when I get sick of my earbuds. I saw these the other day and I fell in love with them, mostly because of their color. Ugh, so pretty. They’re currently on top of my wish list.
Exhibit #2: My nailpolish.
I saw tons of pictures via blogs of mint nailpolish before I caved and bought some of my own. It seems like a lot of people swear by Essie but I couldn’t find it and decided to save a few bucks and stick to my usual brand, Sally Hansen. The color is Minty Fresh and currently gracing my fingers and toes.
Exhibit #3: These sandals.
A disclaimer: I have no sense of fashion right now. You’ll never see me blog about what I’m wearing because I such a jeans and tees kind of girl. But I know I’m pretty much turning into my mother because I love shoes so very much. And right now, I *love* these Steve Madden sandals. Seriously, if I owned these, I would probably wear them for months on end. However, they’re sadly out of my price range right now. So I bought these other SM sandals instead (which sadly are not available in mint, but I’m flexible like that).
These are just a few examples of my current adoration of the color mint. Is just a symptom of spring fever? Please tell me I’m not the only one. :)
