Green Into Spring

Ahhh....do you feel it?! Spring has arrived!!!
Yet.....it's still snowing here in Kentucky! WHAT?! It's quite annoying.
As much as a snow lover as I can be, I am beyond ready for warmth, blooms and sunlight. For eggs and Easter things, gardening and outdoor picnics. For long days, which I've already been appreciative of. For renewal and refreshing of watching the earth come vibrant once again. Everything with Spring breathes new life into my being and settles into my bones. It's a glorious, hopeful feeling!
There is something about Spring that draws out brightness in my style. I'm a neutrals gal - black, beige, gray, brown...these colors are my jam! But when you start bringing the seasons into the mix, I am able to branch out from my go-to shades. One of my very favorite Spring colors is mint green. It reminds me of pistachio ice cream [which, in fact, is very yummy], and Easter fashion finery. So chic, yet approachable.
So since I love to shop ... well, let's just say, I've really found some amazingly beautiful ways to bring mint green into our lives!
My very favorite thing on this list is, of course, the most expensive [it's my spiritual gift, to pick the most expensive]...this Kate Spade Leather Satchel is THE PERFECT Spring bag! I do have a soft spot for handbags. This comes in other Spring-eque shades, but the mint green captured my eye. Now if only my wallet would follow suit...
To compliment the beautiful handbag, you could don these very affordable Daisy Dangle Drop Earrings, found on Amazon [I'm ordering these, STAT]. In fact, they would compliment this gorgeous mint green, flower print dress very well! Can you imagine swirling around outside in this on a sunny Spring day? So, so pretty!
Also, this cute double bell sleeved babydoll blouse in green mint from Amazon is the perfect casual way to incorporate a pop of Spring brightness. The description says "stretchy" - I mean, does it get better than that? Oh wait - it does! What about these Chuck Taylor All Star Shoreline Sneakers? I really want these!
If mint green isn't really your color to wear, maybe it's a color you could display to usher in those Spring feels. This really beautiful 3-piece ceramic jar set with bamboo lids is so unique and classy! I love the pattern on the canisters, and the bamboo. And I've always loved jade-ish green dishes, and this Pioneer Woman ribbed glass bowl would be perfect on an Easter buffet! And it's affordable. I love all the Pioneer Woman dishes - they are great quality and come in such pretty patterns.
If you're into tech.....you could display this compact and affordable mint green bluetooth speaker and play music, or in my case, podcasts! It's even waterproof, and highly rated on Amazon. While I have to use a fortress-like case around my phone [I'm super rough on it], I really think this Rifle Paper Company iphone case available on Anthropologie is beautiful! I love the pattern, and the coral with the mint. So feminine and bright!
Last but definitely not least, we cannot forget about your pup! They deserve a Spring refresh, too. I'd love to take Penelope out with this snazzy leash, which features little elephants with heart tails against a mint backdrop. It's made of nylon and machine washable, and the 4 ft length is perfect for smaller pets [like my dachshund!].
I hope you take the time to enjoy the beauty of Spring [if it ever really arrives]. Even if you don't want to buy new things, find a way to celebrate the changing of seasons and usher some extra cheerfulness into your life!
