Trend Watch | Mint & Skinny

Mint Jeans, Navy Cardigan, Wedges

It seems like mint skinny jeans are popping up everywhere this spring.  It’s no wonder why.  Mint is a fresh new neutral that goes with just about anything.

If you saw my patio post last week, you already caught a sneak peek of this outfit.  It’s one of my absolute favorite casual outfits of the moment.  I may have even worn it twice last week, but who’s counting?  🙂

This outfit starts with a very basic base – a white tee and colored denim.  Add a cardigan, some wedges and a few accessories and you instantly have a polished, put together look that works for just about anything.

  • Those wedges are great, and I LOVE the pop of color with the belt!

  • I absolutely love those wedges – but they’re reminding me that I need to go get my toes done like NOW. Just in case spring actually shows up to New York. 😀

  • When I wear mint, I always try to keep it simple up on top. I’m actually wearing mint jeans on my blog tomorrow!

  • Yes! This is my kind of outfit. Colored skinnies, cute wedges, adorable! I paired my mint skinnies with cobalt blue which was a nice unexpected combo. Heather

  • Gosh, I love this combo! Simple but oh so chic!! It helps when the wearer is a cutie-pie!
    You could put on a potato sack and look great!
    I’ve worn my mint jeans with black silk blouse and a pair of bronze sandals. Your sandals with pop of colors are a perfect finishing touch!

  • I’m not sure yet if I like mint or not. Until I figure it out I’d like to go for pink!

    I had decided I had enough colored skinny jeans so I bought some mint Bermuda shorts. I have a cute navy with white polka dots cardigan and a white tee that I could put together to try this look. I don’t have the wedges yet. I’ve been looking for some, but I just can’t wear the super high ones. You look so cool and beautiful in your mint and navy combo!

  • oh lovin the mint. I’ve got my eye on a mint kitchen aid ….hmmm and now i want a thin mint 🙂

  • Lovely as usual! I am not a big fan of wedges but these are really cute.
    The pictures are so nice…love the background and how it is the perfect contrast to the outfit.

  • Love this outfit! I’ve been crushing on mint green so much my blog is getting a re design as we speak in those colors. Can I wear your outfit for my new profile pic?…lol!!

  • Mint is a fabulous colour and your shoes are so cute! You look gorgeous as always, Alison.

    Last time I mentioned my passion for porches and now can really imagine me sitting there enjoying a nice cocktail with you on a Monday evening 😉

  • Love the new look of the blog! I tried on some skimmers thinking I wouldn’t like them because I’m shorter but they did actually do something magical. 🙂 With heels they look great. I would wear these mint skinnies with a loose tunic (hello twin tummy!) or one of those polished-looking sweatshirts and a long necklace. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • These pants look like they were made for you! I’m still looking for the perfect pair…

  • Love the mint skinnies – just ordered a pair of my own! Great color combo!
