Fashion Friday: Mint julep

Shades: Maui Jim | Earrings: GroopDealz | Top: Local boutique | Shorts: Utah state fair (old) | Flats: Shoe Carnival

And this, my friends, is why you don't wear your hair in a high ponytail and have your husband take pictures of you. I look like a baby with one clump of curls clustered on the top. Nice. I promise I had visible hair (in my defense, dark hair blends in a lot more than light hair does, and curly hair is always a big dark mass in pictures).

I'm not sure why I never thought of this combination before, but mint and aqua look really good together. The colors are complementary on the color wheel, but the light shade contrasts nicely with the red — and you don't look like a Christmas tree.

Also, Andrew saw these flats on clearance when we were at Shoe Carnival about a month ago and knew I would like them. Ladies, find a man who pays attention to the things you like! I am lucky to have a husband who understands my love affair with red. :)

Oh, and I have these anchor earrings in navy blue as well, and I LOVE THEM. They were super cheap, too. GroopDealz for the win!

How do you feel about red and mint combo? What do you pair red with to tone it down?


  1. cute look, i love the sunglasses!

  2. Wow. He goes shoe shopping with you?

  3. That is so cute he found those shoes, I love them!! -♥- Rachel (For the Birds)

  4. I wish there was a "like" button for days I need to be quick but want to show you some love.
    Darling shoes. And, I would have never thought of the color combo. Who knew?
    I think I tend to go towards earthy and tone down reds with brown and white.

  5. the mint is very subtle. i like it!
