Mint Candy Stripes

I recently purchased the following Kate Spade bow belt in a color which is apparently exclusive to Nordstroms. This color is aptly named, Mint Cream. When the belt arrived a few days ago, I was officially smitten. I'm glad that Kate Spade makes this particular belt in Italy and the quality certainly shows. They had a similar style belt (in brown) at Target that was made from PVC and priced at $19.99. I paid double that for this belt (it was on sale) and it was worth every penny.

This bow belt will compliment a wide array of skirts and dresses, but today I decided to wear it with a seersucker mini skirt from Marshalls. The skirt was only $17, so you can't beat that. I thought the pastel orange stripes of the seersucker would look great with the mint. Very refreshing for summer. My husband commented that I looked like a candy striper, hence the title of today's post.

  Since it was such a hot day, and I was in such a minty mood, I had to order one of my favorite cocktails, the mint julep. I would have preferred it in a traditional pewter cup, but hey, I'm not picky.

This last picture really doesn't have much to do with anything except for the fact that the fountain featured here has a mint patina to it and I thought it was cute. Who doesn't love a cute little sheep?
