Newly Minted

“The world is not so much in need of new thoughts as that when thought grows old and worn with usage it should, like current coin, be called in, and, from the mint of genius, reissued fresh and new.”

-Alexander Smith, a Scottish poet

 

This week we are experiencing warmer temperatures, relatively speaking, on the east coast. (After weeks of bitter cold I’ll take what I can get) All of these “balmy” temperatures and sunny skies have me looking forward to spring and its trends for 2013. I love all of the light and bright colors, especially mint. Mint is everywhere; dresses, blouses, pants, jeans, shoes, bags. Whenever I see almost anything in this color I find a smile begins to creep across my face. The color itself is very refreshing; evoking feelings of calmness and relaxation; making everything feel fresh and new. I also love mint as it can be used as either an accent color or a neutral, which makes it a great addition to any wardrobe staple. Below are a few of my “minty fresh” favorites:
