It was mint to be

Dress:Mossimo at Target | Scarf: H&M (gifted) | Sandals:Payless | Jewelry:Forever 21

As we all know, mint is the color for spring. I think every blogger has posted about it in some shape, form or fashion and I am no exception.  What is not to love about it?  Well, I will tell you, it is a FREAKING hard color to find in the stores.  For being the so-called color of the season, it sure doesn't make it's presence very often.  And when it does...it's gone in a blink of an eye.  

But, this time, before I could blink, this minty-fresh dress was in my grip.  SCORE!  Finally, I found something in this color, in my size, that was cute, affordable and whispered shouted..."Shanna, over here! I have been waiting for you. We were 'mint' to be together!"




Target has several colors to choose from {here} and for only $18.00, why not grab one of each?  If you do, can I borrow the yellow one?  I promise to wash it in cold and hang dry it! And for the record...this dress was purchased a month or so ago.  I am on a shopping freeze, remember


So, are any of you having trouble finding cute stuff in mint or have I just been shopping at all the wrong places?  Let me know if you have found something cute in this color...not so I can go buy it, just so I can live vicariously though you during my freeze.

In other news...the lucky lady that will be receiving this fabulous Thirty-One, polka dot coin purse is...Dunt-Da-Dunt...Miss Morgan Stone!!  Congratulations! Thanks to everyone who entered.  Make sure you check out Mandy's website for all your Thirty-One wants, needs and desires. Such cute stuff!!   

Cheers to things being "mint" to be...







Today I am linking up with Long Distance Loving for more Friday fun. Have a great weekend!

I can not find any thing in mint in stores. The Limited's website tells me they have mint denim, so I am going to attempt to snag some this weekend. Wish me luck! And then I will be joining you on a much needed shopping freeze.

oh my gosh, couldn't agree more. I LOVE the color, but can't find it anywhere. I find various shades of light greens, but not the mint color I'm looking for. I'm surprised, because I have been seeing so much of it being talked about!

I love the title of your post! When I did my mint post a few weeks ago I couldn't think of anything clever. The dress is cute too by the way.
