Minty-fresh polka dots

This week certainly didn’t turn out as planned. I imagined that after spring break, I would be motivated to do homework. Not. I’d much rather be doing anything right now than homework. I imagined that my computer would live out the rest of its days in happiness. Not. Instead, my hard drive crashed on Wednesday night. So this week hasn’t really been the best … but I’m surviving. Here’s the breakdown:

Cardigan: J.Crew via Salvation Army
Blouse: Vintage via Salvation Army
Denim: Elle via Kohl’s
Flats: Steve Madden via TJ Maxx
Bag: Brahmin (c/o Vogue)
Choker: Salvation Army
Ring: H&M 

Mint has been the second color of the season in my opinion (second only to tangerine), and I’ve been seeing it everywhere – denim, bags, shoes. Mint and other pastels have never really inspired me, but after seeing so many other bloggers rocking the color, I wanted to give it a try. So imagine my surprise when I found this brand new (with tags) J.Crew cardigan at Salvation Army for $2.50 – in mint, no less!
