Minty Monday

After so much red, white and blue this past holiday weekend, I thought I would start the new week off with a little green.... mint green, to be exact.

Dress: Paper Crown by Lauren Conrad

The tweed Paper Crown Parkside Pleated Dress is available (and on sale) at Anthropologie. The dress has a very large open back, so it may not be office appropriate if you work in a more conservative environment. Beware the wide arm holes as well; I recommend trying the dress on before you decide on a size.

Purse: Kate Spade New York

The Kate Spade Marguerite Scallop Purse is no longer available, but you can find plenty of options on eBay. It comes in a variety of colors, like this mint green and also a beautiful lavender. The purse comes with a long handle as well, so you can use it as a satchel or cross-body. I love a bag with a little versatility!

If you love the color (mint mojito - a fabulous name), but not necessarily this style, check out the Kate Spade Astor Row Palermo. This bag is career chic at its best.

Shoes: Jimmy Choo

I rarely wear flats to work, and even though my calves are still a bit sore after running the Peachtree Road Race 10K on July Fourth, today was no exception. These Jimmy Choo Abel pumps in Key Lime are on sale and still available online from Saks Fifth Avenue, but hurry if you want a pair in this color. Most sizes are already sold out.

Here's a close-up of the shoes and bag. The colors are a super close match.

Lauren Conrad actually wore the dress on a recent episode of Fashion Police with nude pumps. I know I went a little matchy-matchy today, but I like my shoes and bag to match.
