mint + cobalt

DSC_2261I’ve always been drawn to the mint + cobalt combination, but I never had the pieces to make an outfit from my own wardrobe. As I explained in my last budget post, I’m a tad infatuated with this pin, so I knew I had to try to re-create it at some point.

DSC_2255And I did, as of last Tuesday. Admittedly, I chose a strange day to do it–it was probably one of the hottest days of the year, and I’m strutting around in a scarf. One of my friends in the PhD program even asked point-blank, “Why on earth are you wearing a scarf…today?” Well, I’m a little crazy, I guess. And, also, scarves do wonders for hiding a baby bump.

  1. i tend to get comments like that quite often too – but my justification is that i want a light layer for when i’m in freezing cold air conditioned grocery stores or restaurants! there have been many a time where i’ve pulled on a cardigan in the middle of summer in one of those places and my sister has looked at me with envy, haha. love the mint + cobalt, i need to remember this color combination!
