Spring Trend: Minty Fresh

It's been a rough week for me. Last weekend, I started with a sore throat. It got worse and worse each day. By Tuesday, I decided to call my doctor to get it checked out. Just like I suspected, the strep test was positive. This is my first time having strep throat and I sure hope it will my last time. It was so painful and disturbing. It's not easy being sick when you have kids to look after. Thankfully, the worst is over and I'm slowly getting my energy back.


It has certainly been a rough winter in the Midwest and spring couldn't get here any faster. These pictures were taken a few weeks ago when the weather hit 50 degrees. Generally, I am not a big fan of pastels but love the freshness that mint green brings to any outfit. To offset the girliness of this dress, I paired it with my trusty denim jacket. This jacket probably is the most-worn item in my closet. I bought it over a year ago and still love it to pieces.


What I am wearing:
Dress: c/o Sheinside *last year* (buy similar here or here)
Jacket: H&M (buy similar here or here - available in XXS)
Belt: H&M *old* (buy similar here in gold)
Shoes: Banana Republic (buy this year's version or splurge)
Sunglasses: Kate Spade Gayla - free shipping

Thanks to grandparents for watching the kids over the weekend. My husband and I got a chance to spend some quality time together to celebrate his birthday. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your great weekend and stay healthy!

Lovely outfit! I'm not a big fan of pastels either, but I think mint is definitely growing on me.

I'm so ready for spring. I keep getting sick. Had the flu twice and now just have a cold. I hope you're doing better. You should feel much better after a few days of antibiotics!

Beautiful dress. I like how you toned it down with the jacket.

Oh! Getting sick with two little kids is the worst. No way to take care of yourself properly. But I hope you did, and are getting better.

My favorite part of this outfit has to be the bottom. I love how it's not just a super sweet girl dress. There's a bit of a boho feel in there too .

Such a nice dress. My fav part is the bottom, so unique ! I am still waiting for spring here in Atlanta and today is not springlike at all.

Glad you've recovered from strep. I had it when I was a kid. You're right, horrible! Glad the grandparents could help out and you could celebrate the hubs' birthday. Love this mint with the cool pattern at the hemline.
