Spring Mint and Stripes

Ah, Spring.  I’m waiting anxiously for Spring to stay put.  Here in NC, it’s been a bit sporadic, weather-wise. But I think Spring is here to stay for the time being.

Since I’m currently in the middle of cleaning out my wardrobe, I’ve been cruising clothes to fill in some gaps.  Plus, try to make outfits with items I already have.

I LOVE this striped top from J. Crew.  It has an embellished, built in necklace, in a variety of green/mint colors.  Love!  I don’t necessarily love the $250 price tag, though.  So I found a similar statement necklace, in mint, that would easily pair well with a stripped shirt I already own.

The pants are a steal from Target at only $28.  Plus, they come in a variety of colors.  And that bag is pretty cheap and cheerful, too, don’t you think?I’ll admit that shoes are the area of my closet that need the most attention.  I have a pair of shoes that look SO worn, but I don’t want to throw them out.  They’re broken in and comfy!  But I would love to update it with a pair of minty flats (more Mom appropriate) or nude heels (for date nights!).

And, ahem, it wouldn’t be the Cup of Tea blog without a minty travel mug!  With a monogram, nonetheless!

So, I’m a sucker for stripes and a statement necklace.  What about you?  What’s your go-to for Spring?
