EBEW Monochrome - Minty Fresh





It's EveryBody EveryWear time, and this month's theme is "Monochromatic."  The last time I did a purposely monochromatic outfit, it was winter and I went kind of safe with blue.  Now it is summer, and I'm feeling a little dangerous, so I decided to go out of my comfort zone, and try minty green.
I got these shorts at J.Crew Outlet over my recent weekend shopping spree.  I have been trying to jump on the colored denim bandwagon for many months, but haven't found anything cheap enough that fit well.  Needless to say, I was pretty excited to find these shorts.

Full disclosure:  I didn't actually wear this outfit out of the house yet, but I will soon!  I meant to figure out my EBEW outfit earlier, but waited until the day before, and didn't think I should wear these shorts to work.  I wore the top and cardigan to work with a skirt (which I will post some other day).  At about 2:30 in the afternoon, I felt a migraine coming on, so I waited until I could see straight and then drove home to sleep it off.  When I got home, I remembered EBEW and I didn't want to miss it, so I put my shorts on really quick and snapped a few pics.  (I feel like such a dedicated blogger!)  Then I promptly slept for about 3 hours, and then spent the evening working to catch up for the day.  Ah, the exciting life of a suburban fashion blogger!  

Just to keep the "Tuesday Trifecta" theme going, here are 2 other ways I have worn this mint cardigan (Click on the pic to find the original post):


Tank: Banana Republic
Cardigan: Gap
Shorts: J.Crew
Flip Flops: Old Navy

  1. This look is great! Minty green has been on my radar, but I haven't been able to find anything in that color. I obviously need to go to GAP, BR and JCrew :) Heather

  6. I hope your migraine didn't stick around for long! I really like the mint paired with more mint, but my favorite is the mint paired with the coral top. There's just something I love about that color combination!
