Transitioning Mint to Fall

I'm kind of an impulsive person on the weekends. I don't usually have serious plans because my BF lives in another state, so I generally wake up and lay around for a while and suddenly decide what I'm going to do. This weekend I woke up, it was raining so I couldn't take my dog to the park, nor did I want to walk anywhere, so I decided on the whim to drive up to Ikea. I'll have a post about what I bought at Ikea and a little weekend art project another day. Anyway, instead of taking a lot of time to pick out my outfit, I immediately grabbed the first pair of jeans that I found in my drawer - my mint pair. Then I figured it was going to be cold and air conditioned inside Ikea so I wanted to be warm - and voila, I chose a flannel shirt. I'm actually liking this color combination. After all, mint is a shade of green, so since the forest green of the shirt and the mint green of the pants share the same color family I don't think it looks terrible. Plus, now I have a new, darker combination to help transition these mostly "spring and summer" jeans into fall! I think the copper booties and the field jacket also help with the fall vibe. How are you going to transition your summer colored jeans to fall? Or are you just planning to pack them up until next spring??
Shirt: J. Crew (similar)
Jeans: ASOS (similar)
Booties: Sam Edelman (thrifted) (similar)
Necklace: Forever 21 (similar)
Watch: Michael Kors
Bag: Dooney & Bourke (I like the rustic look of this one)
P.S. - I know it seems insane to wear heels to Ikea, but I wasn't going there for the whole "experience" - I was there for less than 30 minutes because I knew exactly what I was looking for - some picture frames and a new rug! Unfortunately the back and forth drive was longer than the whole time I spent in the store, lol. 


  1. Great outfit. Love the mint pants with the plaid top.


  2. love those shoes! And those mint jeans look great on you!

  3. Mint is such a pretty color to use for transitioning. I plan to use mint with burgundy for this fall. Love the camo jacket with jeans!
