OOTD: Mint and Coral (and neon)

     Happy Friday friends! Just a reminder to all of you to check out my fellow Summer of Something New bloggers' posts today. I know that I shared my SOSN post a day early yesterday, but Elle, Gina, Jessica and mQs will be sharing their posts today! Can't wait to see what these lovely ladies did for week 5.

     I haven't done an outfit post in awhile, so I thought I'd share an outfit that I wore yesterday for lunch with my grandma and then later for work! Everything in this outfit were things that I purchased last month of this month as part of my back-to-school shopping.

Sorry that there is a dark shadow on my face... but this was the only picture that truly showed how bright my top and shoes were! 

  • Top: Delia's (July 2013)
  • Skinny Jeans: Delia's (July 2013)
  • Flats: Nordstrom Rack {Brand: Vince Camuto} (July 2013)
  • Necklace: Francesca's (June 2013
  • ((tank-top worn as an undershirt is from Wet Seal))

     I have been obsessed with the color mint as a fashion statement for awhile. My collection of minty items is growing; from accessories to tops to my beach cover-up, mint is an addiction that I can't avoid! When I saw these adorable mint skinny jeans on sale at Delia's this past week, I knew that I couldn't resist them! Colored skinny jeans have been in for a long time now, but surprisingly these are my first pair.

     I went to the mall with my grandma and mom a few weeks ago so they could both get new pairs of glasses. After the mall my grandma and I spent awhile browsing Maine's first Nordstrom Rack store. While there I found these awesome neon flats, and my grandma insisted on getting them for me. ;-) The pictures honestly don't do justice for how bright the shoes are! The only problem was that at the time that I bought them I didn't own anything that neon that would match (minus my senior prom dress, but sadly I won't be wearing that anytime soon!).

     After I purchased these mint skinny jeans at Delia's, I continued to browse the store with my mom and we found this cute top hidden on one of their racks. We both agreed how it would be the perfect compliment to my new flats! I loved the pretty back, and I felt like there were many ways that I could style this, which made it a must-have! Speaking of Delia's, they seem to be having great sales right now. I've never been a huge fan of that store since I think their clothing is usually very overpriced for the quality, but I was impressed with the discounts and promotions that are currently running!

     And lastly, my necklace was purchased at a Francesca's Collections on my trip to Las Vegas last month. I think that it was the perfect way to tie in the mint and coral colors for this OOTD!

     Have you worn any mint and coral outfits? What are you favorite color combos?

     And don't forget to leave a comment on this post asking me a question for my upcoming vlog! You can ask me literally anything, and I will answer all questions in the vlog (which I will be recording this weekend or early next week!).
