My New Favorite Outfit: One on the Wish List

One on the Wish List

A while ago I shared with you all my Spring Wish List, well I happily found one thing on it to buy. We got an extra 30% off to Kohl's and so we went to see if there was anything we couldn't live without. Within minutes I found this blazer and a pair of mint skimmers. I pulled on the skimmers and they fit.....then I looked in the mirror. Hideous. Truly hideous. I'm a pretty average sized person, but with these particular pair on I looked pretty similar to a mint colored Good Year Blimp. So.....I'm not giving up yet, but I might be soon. Luckily this blazer didn't have the same blimpish effect the jeans did. I really like it paired with the brown skirt and lace shirt. I have a couple more spring looks in mind for it too.

Don't forget to enter to win my Stella and Dot giveaway!


Blazer: Kohls $25
Lace top: Kohls $20
Skirt: Maurice's $3 (thrifted)
Necklace: Plato's Closet $3
Belt: Plato's Closet $3
Shoes: Fergalicious $30

  2. Did you check Target for the mint jeans? That's where I got mine and they were pretty cheap. LOVE the color of your blazer!

  4. I love your blazer! It looks fabulous with this skirt. :) I'm currently wearing mint skimmers - I got the GAP ones. I'm a size 8/10 and they were super comfy, and relatively flattering.

  5. It's a great colour and actually goes really well with the brown. I have an ambivalent relationship with brown; I can't make up my mind if I like it on me. You make it look fabulous though!!

  16. This blazer is super cute! I've had the same problem with mint jeans - I think I need them to be a super thick material or something so that it doesn't just...ugh, I don't know. I've tried them all, I feel like!! Good luck and can't wait to hear if you find some good ones!

  17. Great blazer,it feels good to check off items from your wishlist, especially when you can do it with a coupon! I've been thinking about getting mint jeans, just thinking. I haven't even tried on any because I just know that it will be a huge ordeal to find the perfect ones and I don't even know if I can pull off light colored pants, to be honest. So we'll see. Keep us updated if you find any that work!

  19. Lovin' the skirt with the blazer and $3....you amaze me:)!!
    I know what you mean....so frustrating when you try on something you've been wanting and find it's not flattering at all. I just had a very bad experience with a Chevron peplum top. It was not good at all. I'm thinking about sharing it on the blog before I return it as a "what not to wear". lol! Have a great weekend and thanks for linking up today:)

  21. Ahahaha aw Ginny, no worries about the mint pants. I have yet to find a pair of colored pants that don't make me look horrendous. They're hard to find! I absolutely love this blazer though. I just bought a pink blazer but have been looking for one closer to this color!

  25. The blazer is lovely. I think I'm totally going to buy some different coloured ones for this spring/summer - every time I see somebody in one on a blog I get uber jealous!

  26. Ooooh, Ginny! That blazer is DIVINE. I'm starting to love coral more and more and more... Even though I love colorful blazers on other people, they seem a little bright for me, but a coral blazer? Even this neutrals-loving-gal could easily jump on board! LOVE IT.

  29. I love your blazer and lace top combo. A structured jacket that fits well and in a beautiful color is a score at double or triple the price; lucky you!

    1. There are actually pretty comfortable and I can wear them all day without feeling like I'm going to die. I also have them in leopard. I'd definitely recommend this brand :)
