Late to the Party

Coach Mint Penny Bag

Mint Sweater and Coach Penny Bag

Coach Mint Penny Bag

 

Crazy Style Love Canadian Fashion Blog

Sweater: Old Navy. Skirt: H&M (old). Clutch: Coach. Collar: H&M (similar). Shoes: Boutique 9. Watch: Michael Kors. Ring: Kate Spade, H&M. Bracelets: J.Crew, Forever 21. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

If you follow along on Instagram, you’ve already seen that I purchased the Coach Penny bag in this beautiful mint shade and also in sunny lemon.  I’ve wanted the Penny bag for months now but I was waiting for the perfect colour to come out.  Turns out Coach came out with 2 perfect colours for me, and I just had to have both.

 

I wore this outfit to another baby shower this past weekend, and yes, while I was late (as usual) arriving to the event, I was also late to another party. . .the MINT party.  But hey, better late than never, right?  Surprisingly, I didn’t make any mint purchases last Spring when it was the colour of the season, but as soon as I saw this cozy Old Navy sweater on their website, I new I had to have it in this stunning pastel.  Am I the only one who was late to jump on the mint bandwagon?

    Hmm I have a mint H&M cardigan from three years ago that I still wear but the current mint trend is a little more bright than that old thing. I have a bag the exact same colour as your jumper & bag (H&M again) that was a Christmas present. I was going to wait until spring to use it but I’m not really sure why?! Your ensemble is proof indeed that mint works in winter 🙂

      Aww, thanks Louise! I agree, you should definitely wear your mint pieces now! I just love this colour for winter. It feels icy yet fresh.

      Thanks Nicolene! It’s funny, this colour combo definitely felt feminine but not overly so. I really felt good in these colours.

      Thanks so much Rachel! I love this skirt, but yes, it can feel too dressy sometimes. It felt just right with this sweater. 🙂

    I own no mint. I find that deeper hues look better on me. I do love the softness of this though.

  • Alyssa

    This is such an unexpected, brilliant color combo for winter. I’m loving mint lately, so naturally I’m obsessing over that coach bag!

    • Jenny
      January 21, 2013

      Aww, thanks Alyssa! I agree, I new I had to have this colour of bag as soon as I saw it! 🙂

  • Patricia
    January 21, 2013

    I look at you and can’t help thinking that Spring is already here!! Can you believe that I never bought anything mint for spring?? I hated the color ’cause it was everywhere!!!!

    This is such a fabulous look on you Jenny! You look so great and that mint colour really suits you. I also adore that fur collar .. I have a snood but have been lusting over a collar .. but winter is slowly leaving stores so I haven’t seen them anywhere!

    • Jenny
      January 21, 2013

      Thanks so much Lauren! Yes, it’s actually really hard to find winter pieces in stores right now! Spring merchandise is already hitting the racks, and I think it’s so frustrating that I can’t find cute hats and scarves anymore! 🙂

      Ha ha, thanks Nancy! I actually bought the Penny bag in purple in November, then exchanged it for the hot pink, then ended up returning it because I wasn’t sold on the colours. I was just waiting for the perfect hues and now I’ve finally found them! 🙂

    I love mint but turns out it doesn’t look so great on me so I suppose you could say I’m late to the mint party too as I still haven’t bought anything in that shade. I love your new purse and can’t wait to see your yellow one in action!
