Mint Green & Spring

I absolutely loved the mint green color when I saw this sweater at Banana Republic. The pastel color reminds me of Spring.

We had an enjoyable trip to Asheville. On our way home, we took a short ride onto the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Parkway closes portions due to snow and ice – although there was no snow or ice where we were, the higher elevations still have too much for safe travels. We were only allowed a short, seven mile ride and then returned to the interstate.

I am looking forward to Spring!! The temp was a little cooler when we were in Asheville so I had to wear winter-like clothes. In NC, we can have 40 degree days followed by 70 degree days, and then back to the 40s…we have to learn the skill of dressing in light layers. I found more mint sweaters that will be perfect for transitioning to Spring. The first lightweight sweater below would be great to wear over a simple t-shirt.

I bought the necklace after the holidays during a 60% off the reduced price sale at Loft. Above is a beautiful  statement necklace that is available at Loft that will look nice with a variety of the Spring fashions.

Who does not appreciate a warm, soft, and snuggly sweater? It never fails that I buy at least one conservative cardigan each winter when I see a great deal. You can never go wrong with such a staple. However, I also like to purchase more trendy sweaters as well. This season, I bought the Loft Grandpa Coatigan in Oatmeal in addition to several others.

I have found myself wearing this more than I expected. I bought this online during a sale around the holidays. It took over two weeks to arrive. When it was finally delivered, I wasn’t sure if I would keep it. I had ordered a Medium and was a little surprised how loose it fit. After wearing it the first time, I found the larger fit made the sweater quite comfy. I love having the big pockets – makes it easier to carry and retrieve my phone. The oatmeal version is not listed on the website anymore, but the Smoked Salmon is still available. I may buy this color to use as a Winter into Spring sweater.
