The whole "Mint & Coral" trend has been going on this Spring. Putting aside that, as you know, I don't believe in trends - wear what you like and what works regardless of trend. I saw all these mint and blush outfits and thought, "I'm never going to wear that!" And it's sort of still true.
I saw all these pale mints and pale, pale blushes everywhere. I knew I would never wear that. First it was too pale for me and would wash me out. Second, it was too dainty and feminine for me. Looks lovely on others, but I like something a little bolder and dramatic.
So I kind of fell into this outfit by accident. I loved, loved the skirt. The flow, the movement, how it blew in the wind. It made me feel like a mystical creature. And the bright, bold tank was just so stunning and too beautiful to pass up. Paired together, with a vivid necklace I think this brighter, more dramatic version of "Mint&Blush" works for someone who's definitely not dainty.
