wednesday wishlist :: mint green... the pretty kind.

i have long been a fan of the color mint green. it is feminine and romantic and has a vintage appeal. wanna know a funny story? about a year ago, joelie and I were shopping at target and he helped me pick out a shade of nail polish (probably the first i had bought in years). guess what color he picked out? yea, he was ahead of  the curve. though i did like it myself, i was a wee bit timid about wearing it. now now i am seeing it all over the place!

here are a few pretty minty things i've spotted on the web lately. unfortunately, i do not know where the lace dress is from (spotted it on pinterest). if anyone does, please let me know!


from top left, going clockwise :: cream donut by detailF,  post earrings by Dariami, pastel me your secrets jeans in mint by modcloth, color block purse by rouge and whimsy.

have you bought anything in mint green lately? all i have at this point is that nail polish. and some pretty antique glass knobs on our bedroom dresser :) do any of you remember this lace and mint green dress from anthropologie? in my opinion, it was the most lovely dress anthro has ever offered, and it sold out very quickly (not that i could afford it anyhow!) i just remembered it when i was searching for minty things. i searched eBay for it to no avail. now i will probably check back obsessively until it shows up. oh dear.

I purchased several mint green summer dresses/tops last year but haven't found any this year. Those little heart earrings are too too cute.
