Although yellow is probably my favorite color to wear, mint green has to be my all-time favorite. A quick tour around my kitchen will prove that (my pistachio Kitchenaid mixer is a treasured possession).  So, on this particular day I was feelin’ a little minty.

Black skinny pants: H&M
Green top: vintage, thrifted
Mint cardigan: Abercrombie (well over a decade ago)
Black flats: Steve Madden
Green bag: Rachel Roy
Black rope belt: American Apparel

I’m a big fan of the peplum trend, and I’m forever dedicated to belting at the waist, so I created a little faux peplum-ish sort of situation with this over-sized tank. One tip when thrifting: check out the sizes larger than your own. This tank is several sizes too big for me, but, I love it belted.

I found this vintage necklace at one of the two antique malls in Arundel. If you’re ever near Arundel, check them out, they’re pretty great. It’s a new favorite.

Silver stone bracelet: gift (years ago)
Silver-tone bead bracelet: Forever 21 (years ago)
Stainless Steel Watch: Kenneth Cole

Sometimes you just have to stick to your favorites. Have a minty day!

About sweetersalt

Salt = sodium = bad. Sweet = calories = bad. Well, isn't that just a bleak outlook. I firmly believe that without salt and without sweet we all just live in a world of lettuce. Plain lettuce. Fun? No. This blog is about life. Namely, my life. But, not that specific. I myself am simply not that interesting. I live an ordinary life, work an ordinary job and do ordinary things. But... life is all about experiencing that feeling you get when you really, really like something. If you don't feel a little warm in your heart when you walk into a farmer's market or try on a piece of beautiful clothing that fits you perfectly (that just so happens to be a great deal!) then you should probably keep on a' movin' from my little plot of internet. Sweeter salt is my metaphor for the good things in life, sprinkled over everything in moderation. Banana? Kinda boring. Banana smoothie - yum! White tank top? Yawn. Statement necklace layered over said tank - now we're talking! I live in Portland, Maine. I love cooking, eating out, riding my bike and approachable fashion. This blog does not chronicle my every waking moment. This is because you will probably not be entertained by the 10th day in a row that I eat the exact same salad for lunch. It does chronicle a healthy, active, fun-filled, colorful lifestyle, in Portland and beyond. It also covers dogs. Cute ones mostly.

    That rope belt is awesome! I often have trouble finding cute tops that fit me well, so belting is a constant for me, too! So, is mint! But I, too, prefer yellow :)
