Mint Green Jeans

That’s right. I have mint green jeans. WHICH I LOVE!!!!!!! 
I think this color looks so *fresh* in winter, especially with winter white. It’s so minty-wonderful. 

Mint green jeans. Who knew? I mean, I’m just blown away that these exist, and that I found them in the window of a consignment store for $22 in my size. Normally, I’d say that was just way too much to spend, 
but. hello. mint. green. jeans.
It would have been a betrayal to my second favorite color to leave them behind.
I also tried on some lovely lemon-yellow jeans (can you even imagine?!) but those, alas, were too small.
Not that I’m complaining. 
Because I’m pretty sure mint green jeans count as a ‘score’.

In honor of my new jeans, I had to paint my nails the same color. 

And then I happily noticed the towel I keep in my leopard print ice skating tote bag was the same color. 
So I wore a similar outfit to ice skate last weekend. Complete with leopard print hat. 
Mint green jeans make my life so much more fun.

Beautiful IU watch
Indiana University ranks pretty high up there on the “awesome things” list. A few weeks ago, they, along with blogger extraordinaire Jessica Quirk of What I Wore, chose my outfit to be the IU Style Most Fashionable Alum. That in an of itself is awesome, but IU kept the awesomeness coming with a giant box of awesome IU items. This sweater stayed with me all weekend (quite literally) as I was at the Young Life All-Nighter. So that is…let’s see…bowling, mini golf, movie, indoor soccer, batting cages, swimming, pizza, hot chocolate, popcorn, and candy All. Night. Long. Sounds kinda like college, right?! 
Boyfriend and I then used the box to prop up a game of Scrabble. 
{Please don’t look too closely; we started with “and” so I’m pretty sure this board has the highest concentration of three-letter-words. Also, I accidentally swiped my blanket across the board and messed it up.}

I kept score in IU red, of course (and won, hehe)

I’ve got a more polished IU look coming next week, so stay tuned, and dust off your old alma mater duds and play along 🙂

Below is my specialty pose. I call it the “Crazed Flamingo“:

Wear it Always

 {this is a different outfit, don’t get confused :-P}

It’s not grammatically correct to say you’ll, “wear it always,” like that one line in the article I just got published. It was right when I handed it in… and definitely wrong in print…grrrr. But anyway
I like to say “always” things. I think I got it from a Shirley Temple movie when I was really little.  So this J. Crew sweater? I’m totally going to wear it always. I’ve worn a variation of this pink top/dress, striped sweater and Hunter wellies combo for…oh, the last week.
