Navy and Mint (Work Appropriate)

I can wait no longer to wear the mint pants that my Momma bought for me for Christmas. I keep seeing all of these images crop up on Pinterest that tell me, "Wear mint with naaaavy. Wear mint with naaaaavy." How can I resist? I can't. 

Feel free to laugh about the fact that my pillow matches my pants. Or, feel free to envy me for my astute matching abilities. 

Also, I would really appreciate it if stores started stocking up on more wide leg pants (in different colors). I do love my skinny jeans and pants, but I equally love wide leg pants. They make me feel instantly polished. 
Yo, retailers, get on that, okay? Am I the only one who makes this request?


 Outfit Deets:
Blazer: Marshall's
Pants: Madewell
Shoes: Naturalizer
Belt: NY & Co.
Necklace: J.Crew Factory


P.S. I'm linking up with The Pleated Poppy. Check out some other ladies and their Wednesday looks!

  4. Mint and navy is a great combo! Also, love the pants. I haven't actually seen too many colored jeans that aren't skinnies - you're right, they need to get on that!

    1. I obsessed over these pants for about a month before I begged Mrs. Santa (aka Momma dukes) to buy them for me. Mrs. Santa loves me very much :) Now, if only retailers would listen to me about more wide leg pants!

    1. Right? I understand why the store is called Madewell because their clothes are exactly that: made well. (oh, how punny.)

    1. Thanks :) I can't get enough of mint these days, so I'm glad it's still an "in" color. Even if it weren't, that wouldn't stop me. It never has before, haha.

    1. It's such a fun color for all seasons (in my humble opinion.) This blazer stands a good chance of becoming my favorite. But, shhh, don't tell the others.

  10. I think it's definitely time to get some more bootcut jeans out there. I think they're the most flattering, and with fun colors? Sign me up!
