Mint + Gold

I tried to resist, but mint (seafoam) whatever you want to call it, keeps appearing in front of me and I am in love. This weekend I ran across this tote at Lululemon and just had to buy it!

lululemon take me with you toteIt had mint striped lining & grey straps {the instagram photo doesn’t do it justice} along with all sorts of fun compartments for dirty workout clothes, a computer, yoga mat, etc.. I blame the lack of sugar & carbs in my blood for my rash shopping purchase. For those who don’t know, I also have another blog called From Cupcakes to Crossfit. My fiance & I have been eating Paleo off and on for over a year now and I am “trying” to do Crossfit, while also continuing with my yoga & pilates.

Anyway, I digress… I love watching the fashion trends because a lot of what happens in the wedding industry is closely related to the newest fashion trends.  Wedding trends tend to be a few months behind fashion, but there are a lot of overlap. Last Fall 2012, I bought a pair of mint skinny jeans from J.Crew & a mint dress from H&M and this Spring 2013, I’m seeing mint / seafoam appear EVERYWHERE, from weddings to all the fashion blogs! So how do you incorporation mint & gold into your life?
