     I think that mint and black is one of my new favorite color combinations! There aren't any close up pictures of my eye make-up here, but today I coordinated that as well by using mint colored sparkly shadow and black liner! 
     My jeggings and earrings were both bought on my trip to NYC at the beginning of January, at flagship stores for the brands that they're from. I haven't worn the earrings before today, but I love them! They're so blingy and over the top but sometimes I like to wear tacky things like that on occasion. The best part is I paid under $10 for them- Forever 21 always has the best earrings for cheap!
      I first spied this shirt at a Charlotte Russe store on Black Friday this past year. However, by the time I saw it I'd already made a lot of other purchases and since it wasn't on sale I didn't want to spend anymore money that day. I couldn't get the image of the cute little mint green top with the gold buttons out of my mind though, so a few days later I browsed the Charlotte Russe website and was pleased not only to find the shirt, but also to find that the company was having an online sale! I quickly decided to buy it and it became my first online clothing purchase. :-) The white camisole that I'm wearing under this is from Wet Seal.
     The black flowy cardigan is also a Charlotte Russe find, but I've had that since my sophomore year of high school! I brought the whole outfit together with these black heeled boots. I've worn them in a prior fashion post back in October. And last but not least y'all get a great shot of my "desperately-needing-to-be-repermed-and-highlighted" hair. I love wearing my hair down but sometimes I get bored, so I decided to add in two mini braids today.

     What are some color combos that you're loving right now?
